    OK so are the newer 500 EXC (17-18) just friggin paintshakers or what? People thought the 640s vibrated. The mighty Husawesomeness is like a magic carpet ride comparatively. I've ridden another 500 that was maybe one model older and don't remember that? And again the comments were "do I have to give this back, it feels like a 250." As we all know, the design brief works in the handling department.

    I followed the newer 500/501 threads for a little while and I read quite about bit of the same. Some made it seam like it felt like it was going to come apart and some had no issues with them. It sounded pretty spotty.

    I’ve got a 19 500 excf. First long ride I took on the bike was with a buddy on his 09 berg fe450. The KTM was completely stock. I was so disappointed in the vibes that the whole time I was riding it I was thinking how much of a mistake I made buying it. It literally felt like it was trying to destroy itself. At one point we switched bikes for a while and the mostly stock Husaberg felt like heaven, if it was t for the amount of money I had in the KTM I would have traded him on the spot.

    After getting rid of the intake and exhaust restrictions, getting proper fueling, and putting a seat concepts seat on my KTM it’s much more normal when it comes to vibrations. I think they just run so terribly from the factory all plugged up and lean as hell, that’s where some of the vibration comes from.

    Are these purely RPM dependent vibrations?

    You balanced the wheels, right?

    Balanced, tubeless, 17” Supermoto wheels and tires. Absolutely 100% engine generated vibration.

    So I bought some spare plastics and other bits from someone and amongst them was a cv4 heat blanket. What's the story with these...do they work?

    They are a bit clunky to get mounted/stuck to the tank but I feel like they work better than the adhesive backed films. If you have the tank off at any point I would go ahead with installation.

    I haven't installed one and I'm not sure how well they typically fit, but here is a pic of a 570 with one and you can see the gaps between it and the tank.

    An air gap is actually of benefit to a heat barrier in most situations. It does however look bad in this application.

    Thanks All! I guess I'll put it on the to-do list.

    Hi guys, I just posted some Scotts damper mounts in the Flea Market that fit on my 2011 Berg. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    You could strum a rock n roll solo on that chain!

    Yeah I kinda noticed that too. Don’t normally adjust too tight.
