    cooling a 510 ?

    I mounted a fan behid the radiator guard & saved alot of $$$ over the KTM installation (cost about $ 30 total), works great too. No more back woods geyser! I'm determined to make the plastic "Y" live forever. Here are some links for cooling parts & info. I did a google search on 12V waterproof fans & found many. My first choice was the Spal 4" fan, but they're out of stock & have none on order. I found the thermostat for $6.50 @ Allied Electronics web site. I used one that closes @ 210F (similar to automotive fan-on temperature). Regarding the Thumper Talk string - I didn't mount the thermostat on the bottom of the radiator; it's the incoming coolant (engine) temperature that matters. I RTV'd the t'stat to the top tank wired it to the ground side of the fan so if it comes loose, it won't burn a hole in the radiator. I ran an inline 2A fuse & have the fan powered continuously. http://www.mouser.com/search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=AQ0912HB-A70GL-LFvirtualkey66400000virtualkey664-AQ0912HBA70GL-LF http://www.selcoproducts.com/cfm/ProductDetails.cfm?Action=Close&SubCat=1/2_Disc_Close_on_Rise&TN=DiscThermostat http://www.spal-usa.com/ http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=268724&highlight=fan+ktm Good luck,

    Buell MX spy shot

    What's up with the high C.G. thing? It looks like a joy to toss around.
  8. I've got Flatland guards on my '06 TE510. I've been stopped dead in my tracks by direct hit to a radiator by a big branch/root. No visible damage.

    What unleaded fuel grade works 07 te 510?

    92 works fine. I've heard that higher octane makes it run worse (ignition mapping issue I suspect). Not sure about the clutch fluid.

    WA street legal requirements?

    You might want to consider a Husqy; 50 state street legal right out of the box. Other than the plate & lights, there's no street bike about it. I've got an '06 TE510 & have been very happy with it.

  12. I can't speak to the taller gearing or rack questions, but the sprocket is held on with a retaining ring.

    Using the Stock Speed Odometer for Enduro

    You're dreaming. It'll only reset to zero. Not only that, but it takes about 15 button pushes, three three second pauses and three two second pauses (all while the bike is running). I've recalculated a couple of roll charts w/ zero resets & won't do it again. It's a big pain in the a$$, almost impossible to read while you'r moving, & game over if you miss a reset or something.

    Anyone with a 250/510 that overheats?

    My '06 TE510 used to overheat occasionally (85 deg F & 18 mph avg speed). I have Flatland radiator guards installed. I am very easy on the clutch & never abuse it. It's overheated recently @ 95 deg F ambient, tight trails (mostly 1st gear) with a 1.6 bar radiator cap & engine ice. This thing needs a fan for sure!
