    08 530 EXC Fork Sag ?

    Thinks for all the help. I'm coming off of an 03 and 06 CRF 450R, I do mostly trail riding, Hollister, Gorman. Not use to the KTM set up.

    Ideal Jetting - 08 530 exc

    My apologies, I'm not sure the dealer said, it was stock, I did plug the brass barb fitting. One thing I noticed, when I try to start my bike, and the seat is off it doesn't start. The dealer did say he installed a European needle, what ever that means.

    How to desmog for California ?

He is my desmogging procedure(tell me if it is correct). First, I plugged the brass fitting, and reconnected the hose. Second, I re routed the gas tank vent to the frame(the tank vent was tied into a Wye fitting, and I plugged the open end on the Wye fitting, with a piece of hose and a c-clamp to plug it. Third, the hose that went to frame, I ran it under tank and plug it. I left all the hoses in place just encase ranger Rick pull me over. Oh, I also removed the catch can drain screw. Let me know if this is correct, and if there is anything else I forgot.

    The dealer said, he re jetted the bike, but I'm not sure what he did. It feels a little flat from idle to 1/4 throttle. One thing I did notice, when I tried to start my bike with the seat off, it wouldn't start, never had that problem with my 03 crf 450.

    Yes and I have cut the restricter off, the power seem a little flat from idle to 1/4 throttle.
  10. Eddie, Can you tell me the ideal jetting set up for my 08 530 exc. I live in California, at sea level, normal temps 65 - 80 degrees. I have desmoged, and cut the exhaust restricter out. The dealer said he set up the carb after he desmoged the bike, but I'm not sure what he did. It seem a little flat from idle to 1/4 throttle.

    Doc, what should my riding sag be in the front. I have a progressive shock spring ( up to 300 lbs), and my preload is about 9mm, I'm being told by my dealer not to worry about my static sag, just add more preload to the spring, because it is a progressive spring.

    I want to keep the bike looking legal, so I what to keep the hoses in place, but bypass the smog stuff. All I have done is solder the brass barb closed, reroughted the gas tank over flow to the frame, and removed the drain from the catch can. Any help with other mods would be a help.

    If I do that I will have an open connection at the wye, where it comes off of.
  14. Hey guys, for California desmogging, is all I have to my 08 530 exc, remove the plug in the catch can, and plug the brass fitting in the intake?
