  1. Sorry for the delay in updating this post. Took the bike out and did an easy 40 mile loop with my daughter. Changed oil, nothing. Followed that up with another ride 100 miles and still good. Bike is running great and shifting fine. SO the mystery remains of what it is, but I am not tearing it apart just yet. After speaking with Chris at Blais racing I am a lot less concerned.
  2. I am in Corona, I would love to hook up and ride local with you guys
  3. Update: I removed and inspected my clutches, gears that are visible with out removing more than the clutch cover and refilled and drained the oil. I still have not found where exactly it is coming from but I am a little less worried. My best guess is it is transmission material. When I cleaned up the plug and looked at the true big shavings it was a lot less than it appeared. My plan is to put in new clutches, because they were a bit cooked. Take it for a short ride and recheck. If it comes out clean than I will just keep monitoring it. If it shows more signs of metal I will pull out the motor and take a better look.
  4. I have a 2016 500exc. I change the oil every two to three rides. Bike has a Rekluse and no other mods to the motor itself. This morning I went to change the oil and found metal shavings on the magnetic drain bolt, on the side of the motor, see picture. These are sharp shavings, I have never had anything other than what I would say is normal. I have been using Rotella since the second oil change, I have also ran it in every 4 stroke I have owned. Where could it come from? How much metal is too much?
  5. My kid was working on his DRZ 125 and while adjusting the valves he stated that he "accidentally" rotated the motor backwards. While questioning him on what he did, he said he had the lock nuts loose and wasn't paying attention and rotated the motor backwards. First, how bad is this?\ Second, what should I look for Third, do I need readjust anything?
  6. For me it was simple, I live in California and wanted, needed, a plated bike. Coming from a 450x I like the KTM, A Lot.

  9. Let me know, I will need a partner to ride it since none of my friends are dual sport....yet.
  10. ^^^^That is my next goal in life.
  11. .64 was really nice, no real hesitation in the throttle from closed to slightly open, I really didn't notice any real popping on decel like before. Now I just need to work on the the fan running all the time.

  13. Right now and for this next ride, tomorrow, I will leave it connected to the airbox. Mainly because I do not have anything to plug the airbox with at the moment. I can see how it would help, cold air is always better than hot air. In fact on my 08 450x I have it plugged at the airbox and venting to the air. I am not sure if there is any performance gain or not, but I have noticed that in the summer months the 450x is a lot more picky on the jetting. Maybe the FI wouldn't be an issue but I do not see any reason to vent it to the airbox, especially if I already removed all the other smog stuff. On another note I got my TPS tool today and set it to .64, it was .59 so we will see how things go tomorrow. I am bringing my meter and the tool just in case.
  14. Granted I do not have a ton of miles or hours on my 16, with that said it sucked the way it came from the dealer. Slow turning, harsh, hated the sand, hard edges made my grimace. After the first ride I went and set the suspension up per the manual, to the sport settings. Huge difference. Bike seems more stable, I am more confident charging rocks and it even does better in the sand. It is still along ways from perfect as I am a bit heavy for the stock springs, but not bad. Also keep in mind I only went with a plate so I can link trails, ride LAB2V and hit some of the trails in and around Corona and Elsinore. I do not expect it to ride like a street bike and I do not plan to ever go 100 down the highway. I just want it to ride like a dirt bike with a plate.
