  1. I run the Clarke tank on both my 525's. Both have the KTM fan I mounted and work without issues. Cheers
  2. Are you kidding -- how can I be expected to text, talk with the guys, and drink my post-ride beverage while rolling out my F-350 if i'm fussing with a clutch and stick...? Long live the garbage truck! Cheers
  3. I put fans on both my 525's. Add to that the coolant overflow tank and your set up will be perfect. The one with the shroud has a rubber flap that allows airflow through when moving -- non issue. KTM Part Number(s): 59035041044
  4. "Carbon fiber/plastic skid plates are a joke" +1 Fasz I use the Flatland Racing on both 525's.
  5. Just pull the cover and knock it out -- it's all one part. I replaced the glass with the solid cover and center allen screw and it works great.
  6. 07 525 XC 243hrs / 4th season all dirt Just did the top end -- didn't need it but felt like doing it... Regular desert set up Scotts dampner suspension work trailtech stator JD Kit w/ T4 EE tall soft seat blah, blah, blah Bombproof ride
  7. Hole on the right side is for water drainage from your sparkplug area.
  8. The advice from TchncnDen is right on the mark. The RFS is a bomb proof motor that will keep running for a long time. Get your deal on the miles, set it up for your riding, and go have fun.
  9. I have this set up on my 525XC. Not any more quiet but the system works well.
  10. I have this exact bike set up for desert racing with all the usual equipment and suspension. The bike is easy to work on, is a tank with lots of nice roll on power, and plenty of parts available. It gets hot in summer. You might get a better price but you will for sure be very happy with the ride -- 6'4" 200lbs.
  11. Mine has done this forever too. The rubber boot that covers the cable has been an issue.
