    That’s the original chain on my 500
  7. Besides two links, why $30 difference price advantage through KTM? It should be the same DID VT2, what am I missing
  8. I do the best I can with WD40 and that’s all I do. It’s going to get just as dirty on the next ride

    Is My Bike Idling High?

    It's sounds lean, back your idle screw out some so it doesn't have any influence then turn your air screw in (CW) a 1/4 turn at a time to richen it up but then adjust for throttle response. Lastly adjust idle screw

    2013 500 exc smoking on startup

    Does it use any oil? Could this white smoke be moist condensation burning off? Personally, I would not throw any parts at it until a leak-down test was performed. I've witnessed this also at cold temps and my engine uses no oil and has a <2% leak down.

    Regrets Buying a New Motorcycle?

    High credit score only means you stay in debt, pay interest to others to maintain a high credit score. Save your money, buy what you can afford. That’s sound advice that will make you wealthy while others are still in debt keeping their credit score high

    Does my rear suspension look too soft?

    Your SAG adjustment result will tell you if you need a spring, SAG first
