    Since I just bought a like new older EXC, I may have one. I'll check later to see if he threw it in the briefcase.

    I miss my 530. It was without a doubt the best bike I've ever owned.
    Only sold it because it had around 600 hours and 14000 miles.

    I was recovering from and injury during February and March so I missed prime time for trail animals but was lucky enough to see my first Gila monster of the year this weekend.
    Enjoy the short edited video...

    Those little Gila Monsters love to have their belly's rubbed.

    This one has 24 hrs on it. If it goes 600 hrs, it won't owe me anything.

    Any clarification Wildcat status. Closed for construction or fire hazard? Or more importantly, is there a fire hazard right now out there? (I've been gone a few weeks.) Rideable the next week or two? The link came up dry (see what I did there :)

    Need a little guidance. Riding the AZBDR with a buddy whose bike keeps dying . 2012 690r RR tanks in front. New filter and pump from Dillon. In line filter. Runs great for a few hrs then dies 10 to 15 times in a few miles. Thoughts? Great ride but for this issue.

    It may be vapor locking, make sure the tank is venting well. Those nice looking billet overflow vents are notorious bad players.

    We thought the same. Rear tank cap has a little bulb on it bu to hose...no idea if tha bulb or nib even has the ability to vent. It's an acerbis cap which came with the fuel port replacement. We will make a change. Thanks.
