One delima Ive had, do I want to buy a EXC500 or the 500 XCW and dualsport it? Doing the latter and leave the dealer with a plated bike, requires tires and a dual sport kit, which Id estimate about $1000 added to the total OTD price. Going with the EXC, you'd have to deal with the Ill formed jetting, Im just wondering, if the exc has differnt Fuel injection parts or the same, to where you can just simply pop in a XCW 500 ecu control module( fixing the jetting). Price Im assuming about $1000 or the same. Thats kind of where my thought process is, and just looking for answers to aide with decision, whats the EXC missing that the XCW has and vice versa, such as does the exc have a higher output stator, are the ecu's easily switchable, is the suspension valving differnt or the same?
