Paul, Rex can provide an optimal outlet size with a straight through.
Thanks for the replies gents.
I have a 300xc as a dirty bike, so the 500 will be set up as an adv bike to replace my heavily modded DR650.
I have a 3-400 km gravel mission planned as a delivery ride back from the dealer to my place, so I will assess the bikes performance then.
It is going to be light years ahead of the dog rooter anyway.
I can't wait , chomping at the bit
Because the stock 17-19 ktms are super lean from the factory and need more fuel to keep them cool and stop them from detonation
For $200 send it to Rex at Fuel Torque and it’s all sorted
I actually found the stock 500 a bit flat and underwhelming
After the tune and exhaust it’s heaps better and runs now like a 500 should
Fitted up the Big Oily Clutch Cover and changed the oil.
@AUSSIEADV , no flat battery mate, started very easy....SURPRISE !!
Geeez that looks smart mate.
The lithium batteries are the shiz.
Any idea how much more oil they hold? If you run some distance over your normal service time, run synthetic.
Got the first of my goodies for the yet to be delivered 2019 500.
6mm AXP skid plate, nicely made from HDPE.
X- factory hand gaurds.
It's like Xmas already
Good batteries for sure..
About 300ml more, well that's what I put in and it's 3/4's the way up the sight glass..
When I dropped the oil it still looked good at 1000 k's , I reckon if you are not flogging these things then oil life is pretty good.
Send the ECU off to Rex next month to richen her up a bit, get the @Jabba600 map...see what he has been raving about.
What's going on here? I thought you had a 701? Is this your latest plan, or in addition?
It looks very nice, but I think you need the AXP plastic bashplate WITH THE EXTRA bit that covers the rear linkage. People have commented that it looks great (dealer thought it might be too long), and no more washing cow poo off the linkage, no more stone chips, and slides better over logs.
At least you've got the Kriega side panels on it, I've had mine 6 months and not drilled holes in the rear fender yet.
I think you'll be sorry you got those hand guards, they are crap in my experience. I just threw mine in the bin last weekend.
The main beam is weak as piss compared to the Barkbusters.
There is nothing positive holding the plastic guards in position so they can move during a minor lay-down and interfere with the front brake.
The rectangular keyway on the end will crack in the 4 corners and obviously break off.
BUT... if you ride around without crashing then they look sweet
Yeah he has a 701. The 501 has been sitting around in his shed unridden hence the comment about the battery!
I agree mate. With the high country trips ive never stressed about going over. It is what it is! These modern bikes are very robust.
Has anyone looked at the 2020 models to see what the differences are?
How similar are the fuel tank mounts, have the gear ratios changed? Here’s a link to the new models.
i have these on my 300 xc , i made a threaded insert for the bars which helps.
i hear you on the plastic guard though, its not great.
I like the way the 2020 model routes the front brake line..there's lots of changes in the rear subframe and plastics..I'll check out the the tanks moubts later this week.
Be nice if they fixed the gear ratios.1st to 5th then leap to sixth...a better spread would be good
Bluddy cheap guys. $600.
Amen to that. Just got my ECU back from Rex @ Fuel Torque, got a custom map made for my style of riding.
Opened her up "Holy snapping duckshit!" BEST UPGRADE (apart from custom suspension) I have ever done hands down.
Pulls harder, wheelies easier, more responsive. As someone said earlier: "Posted to Rex on Monday and got ECU back on Friday!"
See these little square KTM type indicator plug connectors? I want to buy at least half a dozen. I've been on the interwebby and I can't find them - cider doesn't usually affect my ability to online shop. Anyone got any suggestions where I might buy a heap? Surely I don't have to pay KTM in the states about AU$60 for a pair. @DRjoe
Non genuine, but I have previously bought THESE ones and they work as intended and can pair with the matching genuine male/female end just fine.
You are a great bloke. Absolute gold and thanks.
looks like what I want
