Does anyone know where to get...

Recommended Posts

an end cap for 450/505SXF for my bike? I have a '10 530EXC and am looking for one of these end caps since those have a larger hole for exhaust to go thru.

Any advise on where I can go to get one? I'd prefer a used one but haven't been having any luck finding anything that will fit.

Thanks in advance,

-Greg

Did you trim the inner end cap outlet pipe down to the welded bracket yet? 10 minute job and thats about as good as that pipe will get unless you do major surgery. Pro Moto Billit makes end caps but I think you'd be better served just buying a take off SXF can complete and installing that if you don't need an arrestor.

Yes, I've already done the surgery on the exhaust. That actually was the first thing that I did, then I did the JD jet kit. But I have noctice that the end cap on some other models have a larger hole in the end. Yes, I could cut mine up and weld in a new piece in their, but don't want a hacked up exhaust if I can help it.

TRy Chip at Munn Racing in Tx for a SXF can. It'll be lighter, full straight thru and well made and cheaper than an end cap anyway. Only thing lacking is spark arrestor which you could still add on with a Db Dawg or such and still be ahead in $ and performance.

The down side of the "Larger hole" and SX muffler is they are substantially louder.

Noise is the one thing we can control, and the one thing that turns the "average Joe" into an Anti.

Agreed, which is why I recommend a Db Dawg in the end. Serves as a spark arrestor and cuts WOT sound SUBSTANTIALLY! A FMFQ4 is a great choice too but more $.

Those are some great ideas. I don't mind the sound thing but it's always nice to be able to add that if nessesary.

I figure if it does lose some bottom end it can't be much with a 530, it should have enough ummph to pull thru that.

Louder doesnt make it faster. Save your cash and spend it on gas and maintenance and ride more. I bet that will make the a lot faster than .007 Hp above 7000 RPM. JMO

If you must I went to ktmcyclehutt and used the parts fiche

77305079006 - ENDCAP 117.99

77005078065 - Packing 18.99

Thats quite a bit of gas.

      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"?
