Spark Arrestor for SX Exhaust on a 530 EXC

I have an SX exhaust on my 530 exc. Does anyone know who makes a reasonably prices spark arrestor for exhaust?

I have a SX muffler with a pro moto S/A end cap in it. When ya don't need it in 4 screws and it's out.

That said it's LOUD. I don't know if it needs a repack or not tho.

I put the stock can back on.

Here's the link.

The Pro Moto Billet endcap is probably the most well known as is mentioned in the above post. It does not quiet the exhaust at all (with just the screen in it) so if the stock can is loud, it will still be loud with the PMB endcap. You can get quiet tips that bolt into the PMB endcap to quiet it down. The PMB retails for $139, and the inserts to shut it up are an added expense. You can usually find it for less when shopping around.

There is also another s/a endcap made by QPX. This endcap is quieter than the PMB. I am not sure as to the cost (I just don't want to look it up right now!), but it is available from KTM in the 2009 Hardparts catalog. You can probably find it cheaper on the internet as well.

I just said to heck with both of those options and fit a Yoshimura slip on to my SXF. It was $200 directly from Yosh. It is listed for the 2007 450SXF, but as you are aware, the SXF exhaust fits your EXC.

Volume level for the Yoshimura slip on?

If I had to guess, I would say that it comes in with the quiet insert/spark arrestor at right around 96. It is much quieter at idle than with my stock exhaust, but when you get it up in the rpms it is still singing.

Any "quiet" aftermarket exhaust is still loud at high rpm. I remember reading a test report that FMF did, and at top rpm on the same bike, their Factory 4.1 Carbon, Powercore 4, and Q4 were all within 1 or 2db of each other at redline.

The bike also comes with an "FIM" exhaust insert (which should be really close to the stock KTM SXF silencer), or you can run it open. I have not run it open or with the "FIM" insert.

      I have a 2007 450 EXC that I recently installed a new clutch slave cylinder on. Per the 2007 KTM service manual it clearly states that the clutch needs to be filled with hydraulic oil, which I did (magura blood). That was yesterday. I went out to double check the level today and when I removed the cover, the rubber seal was all contorted and out of shape. I then looked at the cover and it's a Brembo clutch and says "DOT 4 brake fluid only".
      I flushed the line and the master cylinder about 7 times with DOT 4 brake fluid and there was no sign of the magura blood left in the system. My question is: other than the rubber boot on the master cylinder, what damage might have been done by putting in the hydraulic oil? It was in for about 24 hours.
      Thanks in advance for any advice!

      Hi Folks!

      Sorry if there are a bunch of threads already but I used the site's search function and didn't find anything so far...

      I just found a decent deal on a '14 350 EXC-F with 11k km (unknown hours). Has a few goodies including skid plate, hand guards and it's for sale for about $2k CAD less than a '16 with 6k km on it.
      The bike is in showroom condition (appearance) with no indication it has been offroad at all.

      What would be the gotchas that would make this deal realistic? I'm coming from a WR250R where the engine lasts forever, is 11k street kms high for these bikes? 
      Are there any big defects in the '14s that I haven't dug up yet?
      With no service records what things should be done, checked, etc?

      I purchased an '06 525 EXC some time ago, and recently pulled the motor out of the frame to address some other issues. When I removed the clutch slave cylinder, I noticed an issue the previous owner neglected to tell me about during the purchase.
      It appears that at some point, the chain broke and damaged the engine case near the clutch slave cylinder (see pics, please). I have noticed that the clutch does not fully disengage (bike lurches a bit going into gear, neutral is hard to find... its worse when engine is cold) ... I did not notice any leaks around this area (mineral oil or engine oil) before or during disassembly. 
      The previous owner (or someone) repaired it with some sort of epoxy.
      Without doing my due diligence (checking clutch fluid level, bleeding) I hesitate to state that this is the cause of my clutch disengagement issue ... but pardon my ignorance here and help me out: How bad is this?  Am I looking at replacing my engine case here or is the previous owner's jerry rig good enough?
