    Macca. In kinglake take extons road until it becomes dirt. Go another half k or so and there is an unloading area on right hand side. Plenty of tracks right there. Should also be licensed to ride there however.

    Ha that’s awesome. I only hope I can still be roosting like that when I’m that age.
  3. Just heard the tragic news that last years Finke winner Daymon Stokie has died during a race yesterday in Alice Springs. A guy in his prime taken way too soon.

    Hey macka I bought a new 17 model after riding a 300 2t for many years. Main reason for buying it was I was planning on riding more open sort of terrain and less tight tech stuff. Well, although I haven’t been riding as much I used to, I have ridden both open and tight stuff and I’m very impressed with the 500. I’m still getting used to it but it seems at home in all terrain. It feels light enough which was my main concern. Map switch works good. I might put a pipe on it eventually but that’s about it. Only gripe I’ve got with it is I can’t seem to get the forks working in rocks as well as my 300 did. I had the same suspension guy do both bikes but it’s just the new xplor fork. I have to play around with it more. All in all, very happy and a big tick from me.
  5. Yeh I agree Cluffie about the carby issues. I’ve had it into 2 shops trying to tune it correctly cause I’m no good at it. Second shop eventually improved it and put me onto a different plug but still a lot of spooge. The octane change came later and has also helped. Now only replacing plug every third or fourth ride instead of three every ride.
  6. I was also told a few months back to use 91 in my sons ktm50sx to help solve the fouling plugs issue and it seems to be performing better. I’ve also started using it in my 500exc and I can’t tell the difference in performance.
  7. Tallarook - 2017 Xmas ride

    Hi all. Today was my first ride with Dirtriderz and I had a ball. Thanks for the opportunity to ride with you all. Hopefully there will be many more in the future. Thanks to Egg for leading, the sweeps and and anyone else involved. Unfortunately I couldn’t stick around for the BBQ as I had to get my son to basketball. I managed to get a couple of pics below. Thanks again.

    I received it Geoffro. Not sure what I’ve done. Maybe I joined up a long time ago but I don’t recall. thanks.

    Thanks mate. Still working out the finer details of the 500 but so far I love it. The change hasn’t been as drastic as I thought it would be. I bought it thinking I was going to stop doing the tight single trails, but I’ve done it a few times and it’s very manageable, with the bonus of oodles of grunt for the open tracks. Just need to use it more!

    Hi all, I'm Lucas and I finally joined after browsing the forum a couple of times and then watching the segment on mxtv. I'm mid 40's from NE melbourne. I've ridden since I was a youngster but it's getting harder to find riding buddies. I've ridden at most of the usual haunts outside of melbourne at some time or another as well as the high country, eildon, the pines. I got myself a 500exc this year after several years on a 300. I look forward to catching up with some of you on a few rides in the future.
