525 EXC auxillary tank

Recommended Posts

I was in Randsberg over the weekend and saw a 04 525 EXC with a auxillary tank that mounted up opposite to the exhaust pipe. I talked to the owner of the bike and he told me Baja Designs just came out with it about two weeks ago. I took some pictures of it, but don't know how to post them. If someone wants to send me their e-mail address, I will pass them on for you to post. The cost was about $150 annd it held something like an extra gallon.

They have an ugly black side plate tank, but this unit is something new (Im told). The picture on Baja Designs web site doesn't really do the tank any justice, but it's actually not to bad looking and they matched the orange pretty good.

They have an ugly black side plate tank, but this unit is something new and tucks behind the original side plate. The picture on Baja Designs web site doesn't really do the tank any justice, it's actually not to bad looking and they matched the orange pretty good. It's not for everyone, but for some of the longriders this is perfect.

This tank was on an 04 bike. I know many parts are not interchangeble between the 03 and 04. I could be wrong, but the owner of the bike told me they just came out with this tank that fits the 04 exc/mxc. It fits behind the stock side plate.

email from Mike Gunthe at Baja Designs, but photo is sick and I cant open it.

Hey Dave, I have attached a picture of the tank to this email. It's in black but we do have them available in orange. Right no I have only one orange in stock. We have a some more in production, and they should be available in about 2 weeks. The price for the tanks is $165. It include the tank, mounting hardware and fuel line/valve. It holds 1.1 gallons and nicely offsets the weight of the exhaust on the other side of the bike. If you have concerns about durability I will let you know that this tank survived the most recent Dakar Rallye. If you would like to order one or if you have any questions please give me a call.

      Looking for something a little lighter and faster to supplement my xr650l and I think this bike might fit the bill. I'm hoping there are some owners here who can give me some insight into the typical experience with this bike. The question I'm most concerned about is how many hours these engines last before needing a rebuild with normal trail riding? Also, how do they handle in technical terrain? How about on the road? 
       
      The machine I'm looking at has about 75 hours and 1,500 miles on it, all stock other than a lectron carb, and comes with some dualsport lighting not installed. The current owner's asking price seems pretty high at $4500, but he seems to be a communicative, eager seller, which is practically unheard of in Upstate NY where the vast majority of dirtbikes on Craigslist are owned (or "owned") by rednecks trying to flip them. I'm willing to pay a little more than market value for this reason.
       
      Thanks for any input!

      Hi all,
      I got a set of the Axis passenger pegs to fit my 14' 500 exc. The bike does have the alloy sub-frame, but I'm curious if anyone has used this set up with success without destroying the sub-frame or their wife/gf? 
       
      Short trips like errands and rides out to the coast for hiking. 10-15 miles on the longer rides, and likely 0 miles on the highway, as she is not super stoked about riding. But our job kinda doesn't allow multiple vehicles. Yachties. Also shopping a sumo set up at the moment too. 
       
      Thanks folks!!

      Recently,I took a trip out to Colorado for some R&R on a family vacation. I brought my riding gear and had planned on renting a bike, but I was too late and at least what I looked at, there was no availability for my timeline. Bummer, since I'd not ridden the rockies in over 4 years, something pretty special when you live in flatlanderville (Florida)! 
      But, behind the scenes, a couple of TT'ers were at work! Through TT, we recently hired a fine, young gentleman to head up our advertising sales team,( @Freemotion ) and he pulled some strings with a local who had a well equipped  KTM 450XC-W that is his back-up machine. His new love is a 2019 KTM 300 TPI and it was gorgeous!
      So, a HUGE thanks to @Freemotion for greasing the skids in getting me a skoot and to @G 9.5 for generously lending out his bike to basically a stranger. The weather was great, so was the company, and the riding was epic as far as I'm concerned. I'm still a bit humbled by the generosity, so I wanted to share a story that I bet isn't as uncommon among the riding community as one might imagine.
      Dirt bike people rock! 🤘

      Hello TT peeps. I currently have an 11' Ktm 450 exc which i am converting to sumo. Still on the fence about getting cush drive rims or standard rims. Not too much info on what cush drive does for wheelies. I know its smoother on the tranny and chain but will it make much of a difference with slower wheelies/stunting? I had a DRZ with standard rims and slower wheelies were very choppy and almost impossible to control smoothly. Any advice/tips/help will be much appreciated. 
      Also.... will 5" rims be pushing it for chain rub? Should i just stick with 4.25"?
