    Clutch Slave Guards.

    i just exploded my chain the same way, lost the slave cylinder, the guard and the mounts on the case. BUY THE PROTECTORS! I am having to price all the damage tomorrow. I have owned 18 dirt bikes in my life and NEVER have i seen damage like this> I am going to drop this bike. It seems cursed. Why would such a quality bike cheap out on such a wimpy chain guard?

    520 EXC case/ chain demolition

    No it actually split the chain right in half. Just had the stock chain guard on. WOW you should see the ugly damage.
  3. Warning 520 EXC owners! Do adjust chain exactly as manual. Mine was probably a little too tight, and i broke a link on the chain in half. Winter riding cold, and miserable out. Chain snapped, broke magneto cover, clutch master cylinder, and chain guard! Anybody hear of this happening before? Anybody know a price of the master cylinder for the clutch. I am mad as the threaded parts going into the case will have to be welded and re threaded. Never seen damage like this before, never seen a 520 o ring chain snap like that before. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Anybody know of a real chain protector?

    I just purchased a used 2002 520 exc. No owners manual, but I want to change oil. Purchased 2 filters, I hear there is 4? How and where do I find the filters, and how much oil does it take to fill it. Secondly, can I buy a KTM manual for the bike from KTM? I am stoked with the bike as i have been riding a 92 xr 600. The honda was deadly dependable, but this KTM,WOW-- brakes, power, electric start! I am in heaven...... Thanks if anyone could help me out.
