    How do you remove rear wheel spacer?

    I pried mine out with a dull gasket scraper and a 3/8” socket extension. Used the extension as a pivot point like a seesaw and worked them from side to side. There’s probably an easier way but that’s what I had available at the time lol. They were tight as hell on my new exc!

    Is this stain normal?

    I have a 19’ 500 EXC with 10 hours on it. Does anyone know what the ring like spot is from & if it’s normal. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi, I noticed that you said you have used kristofsx.com before. I just paid the $10 but I am very leery of downloading from them. My phone and my computer keep giving me warnings and they keep asking for permissions that are insane. Like able to view all sites I visit and change all my privacy settings and the list goes on. Did you have to go through all of that to download, I guess is my actual question? Thanks!

      I had no issues downloading anything from them.  It seemed like a legitimate site and would use again.

      I think I just figured out what happened to me. I'm glad I stopped when I did because it just downloaded now without any of the craziness. Thanks again.

    Water in air box after washing

    I ended up drying out all the water possible and then started it and let it idle to get up to temp. Then I changed the oil immediately after and ran the bike again. No signs of water getting into the motor. I was just shocked to see water there. I thought that was the whole point of using a cover lol. No harm done, I’ll just be more careful next time. Thanks for the input fellas.

    Oh and I didn’t use a pressure washer.

    Water in air box after washing

    Hoping this is a simple answer here. I have a 19 500 EXC bought new (still completely stock) and I washed it for the first time today and used a brand new KTM air filter box cover. After I dried everything including inside the air box I removed the cover and saw water below where the reeds are (see pic). It was enough water that when I pointed the bike uphill and tilted to the air box side a little stream of water came out. I really don’t think the box cover leaked as it was tight as hell and no moisture was even in the groves of the cover seal when I removed it. What did I do wrong or what could be wrong?? TIA!

    So I bit the bullet and got a new 2019! So excited, never owned a new bike in my life. Still got my trusty old 1997 yz125. Looking forward to bonding with a 4 banger! Thanks for all the input.
