Hey KTM,

I have a 2014 500 exc with almost 9k miles. My chain guard and slider are absolutely destroyed. Is this common with a bike with this amount of mileage? I dont really see anyone talking about have to replace these. Do they have some that are more durable?

Also, on a side note. I have a strange vibration when I ride on the highway. It's like every 1 second it's a vibration that last about a second. Very continuous. Could it be my stock rim is not true anymore? I noticed my front tire has a very weird tire wear on it. But it doesnt explain the strange on 1 second off 1 second vibration I get that shakes through the whole bike.

I've got over 100hrs on original one on 2014 450sxf. As does my sons 350sxf. Not near needing replacement. Don't know how 100hrs translates to miles in your case.

Just compare average mph / kph to the amount of miles . 9000 miles is well over 100 hours if not twice that depending on the type of riding done. Yes , it is normal especially if you do quite a bit of road riding .

i think i watched a video once before on the "ktm husky" youtube page. Yes i do believe his username is that generic haha.

he modifies / makes stock ktms and huskys run better with little tips and tricks. Anyways the video im talking about he had a weight that balanced the rim as the placement of the two nipples on the rim is close in proximity instead of directly opposite of each other.
