    500exc Speedo parts?

    Thanks for all the input guys, yeah I think I'm just gonna go there epoxy route for now, it sucks you can't just buy the replacement part on any OEM part finder, it still works, just after every wash when not careful with the hose I get some condensation under the screen. And by the way it's a bitch getting the two pieces separated

    500exc Speedo parts?

    Hey guys I have a 2016 500 exc and my speedo body is cracked I started noticing i had an issue when I saw condensation under the screen. Does anyone know where you can buy replacement hard plastic body for the bottom? I would just buy a new one but I don't want to lose my hours and mileage. Plus it'd be cheaper just to buy the plastic not the computer. I have no idea what company even makes these?

    500 EXC - jumps test

    Also heads up I found motovations racing here on the east coast that will do full revalve on front and rear suspensions and microfinish fork tubes for 350 if you don't need parts, and 450 if all seals, bushings, and other wear parts need replacing. I just rebuilt the forks so for 350 I'm going for it. He does alot of the pro GNCC guys stuff and top amatuer racers. I'm gonna send it out on Monday, so I'll let you know next weekend how it all turns out.

    500 EXC - jumps test

    There are 2 links below for Slavens racing where I got my springs. Each spring is rated for a specific weight range , his chart also shows you what comes stock. So I just chose a heavier rated spring, I think o have the 4.8 fork springs and 7.8 shock spring. The 110mm is the air gap so just a tad bit more oil in the fork than stock which I think is 120mm. With the oil weight I would just wait until you replace the seals. Slavens has lots of good videos on how to do it all. It's definitely worth doing it yourself, i'ts pretty easy. Probably takes about 20 mins per fork to disassemble and rebuild . Also instead of buying the fork pin tool to take the cap off you can just use a pin spanner wrench that harbor freight has for 3 dollars. https://slavensracing.com/shop/shock-springs-straight-rate-pds-linkless-ktmwphusaberg/ https://slavensracing.com/shop/fork-springs-wp48mm-43mm-x-505mm-ktm-husaberg-wp-2/

    500 EXC - jumps test

    I have the same bike 2016 ktm 500exc with the WP open chamber 4860 Mxma pa forks. I weigh 170, I have gone up 2 spring rates on front and rear and am running llthe 110 air gap with a 7w oil instead of the 5w, this significantly improved the suspension. Also played around with rebound and compression to find a decent setup. I ride mine primarily at the track, and it gets by okay. I am going to do a revalve soon though to try and make it more suitable Its just a little pricey. I mean it's only 225 for forks and 225 for rear, I just hate that you have send the whole fork out , 150 of that is a fork rebuild which I can just do myself. I wish there was a place that you could just send the valve stack to and have them revalve. If anyone knows a company that does let me know! If I can't find that option I'm probably gonna go the Kreft or Stillwell route.

    2008 EXC-R E-Start Dead.......Ideas?

    Any luck, I'm having a similar problem with my 500 exc?

    Efi and low fuel light coming on 500exc?

    Yeah I've checked all of those, need to really dive in and check all connections , I believe it's going on somewhere in that birds nest behind the headlight
  9. I have had this issue happen twice, my efi and low fuel light are coming on, the bike will idle but soon as you give it gas it will sputter and die. The lights aren't on until you roll the throttle back. Any ideas? Also the electric start won't work. Have to kick the bike to start, and the computer doesn't come on when you turn the key and flip the switch to start,. Assuming it's a wiring issue or fuel pump issue, any help would be appreciated.

    2016 500exc exhaust and mapping

    When I get a chance to really ride it this weekend ill update, but I mean I'm sure you have way more open terrain out there in Az than here in Va, just wanted an ecu that I didn't have to jump through holes for with ktm and richen up the motor. And I'm sure we'd all be faster on a 350 lol

    2016 500exc exhaust and mapping

    Just plugged In my vortex ecu.... so I have a different bike now. I only rode it around the neighborhood twice, won't get it to the track till this weekend. But I really can't describe the difference. Power delivery is sooooo smooth. It starts immediately, engine has quieted down, not even the slightest hint of a pop on decel, wheel wants to come up in every gear. This thing is amazing!! Best money I've spent for sure!!

    2016 500exc exhaust and mapping

    Mine is desmogged and descreened. Don't get me wrong the bike runs great, I've been meaning to get a remap to fix the leanness on the top and all over really. Do i need a Vortex ecu or a FMF slip on... no of course not. The vortex is peace of mind knowing its rich enough for whatever I decide to put on it if anything though. The fmf is more somthing i wanted for a throatier sound and the weight savings and any hp gain a plus. I used to race mx and am still young only 28 , been thinking about selling it and just getting another mx bike, but I keep thinking this is why i bought this bike, I can go for a joy ride around town or take it to Budds Creek like I did last weekend. So i've decided to keep it and mod up. I ride it 50/40/10 track, trails, road. Love the bike, have a stiffer suspension on it, better timing and fueling on the way, and maybe an exhaust in the future. Guess I just like spending money lol.

    Thanks I have your tool already. I've actually decided to go all out and bought the Vortex Ecu!! Gonna wait on the exhaust since the Vortex was $700
  14. I'm thinking about upgrading to a slip on fmf 4.1 or full exhaust and want to get a remap as well. What map should be downloaded?
