I had a great ride out today the pegs feel good , very natural. I seemed to be much better balanced when attacking hills. only problem I had was I  adjusted the back brake down to much so the lever touched the frame before the brake caught. So I backed it off a bit. This means the brake pedal is to high, so Iíll have to look at it this week. Nothing really!
Anyway bike feels good!

Hey burner, does your 500 flame out at all?  Mine has done it a few times and usually on some sort of creek crossing or dip through a valley.  Its quite annoying.

Hi
No my bike has run fine
 Iím second owner , it has 1300 miles and about 65 hours, a bit of stalling in slow stuff when I first got the bike , but that was just getting used to the bike .
Not been on the bike for a few weeks busy with work.
Maybe someone else can help

I'm taking back to the dealer for diagnostics.  Oil is contaminated with excess fuel, backfires/flames out too often, and has a very bad stumble when I snap throttle from idle to WOT with no load.  Oil level keeps rising.  Fuel consumption is far too much as well.  18 miles today and used nearly a 1/4 tank.

I only get about 50miles before the fuel light comes on.
They are heavy on fuel.
Good luck

It should not smell like gasoline (petrol).  Mine reaks of it.  Just called local dealer, they said bring it in no problem.  Their guess is it has very old mapping.

Well took mine to the dealer, they wiped the ecu and reloaded the mapping/firmware.  Seems to run considerably different but I will know more on Sunday after riding it a few hours.  Still have to change the oil since its contaminated with excess fuel.

my 19 500 factory has done 170 hours now with no issues really..it started idling strange one day so my dealer told me to clean the throttle body and stepper motor which sorted that...check the large nut in the centre of the clutch because mine came loose on a ride a while back and made one hell of a grating noise..

@burner

What rear sprocket do you have?  49T or 50T?  I thought 50T was factory, and was told this by a few folks, but looking in the manual, it shows 14/49 is factory gearing.

Top end is horrible on my 500.  My brother in law on a CRF450X with a 5 speed has more top end when we decided race one another on a park road.

1st gear is useless in any tight stuff, too low so I want to go down on rear sprocket size but doesn't look like there is much to choose from, only 48T.  I need like a 47T if the 49T is factory.  Cant do a 15T front as it would hit the case saver.
