    Default 14 ktm 500 exc black gas tank?

    Has anyone ever tried swapping a 14 450 sx-f gas tank? Ktm part number 7890701314430. Was wondering if this is compatible with the 500exc

    Yes it does. I have a SXF tank on my EXC supermoto. Straight swap.

    The 2012 have different plastics so it might not match up. Check ktm-parts.com they have tons of oem parts and good customer service
    The picture above looks like a 2012 exc. So I'm sure it will work.

    cheers. I think there may be an issue with compatibility of fuel pumps or at least the routing of the fuel between the EXC and SX models

    Default 500 xcw sxf tank

    I am looking to put the sxf tank on my xcw but have heard there would be issues with the radiator fan. Does it have to be removed/relocated?

    i did this a few months ago on my 450, but its pretty similar apart from the fuel lines
    yes you need to remove the fan and either leave it off or refit it lower down on the rad

    i left it off because ive never had a overheat issue, ever! even on my old ktm's.

    Thanks for the reply Lloyd. I think I am going to try to move the fan down. Wouldn't think it would change the effectiveness of the fan too much. Like you said though mine has hardly ever kicked on in the past. Don't have the tank in yet it is currently back ordered. Any idea on how far down the fan would need to be moved?

    also you will need to atleast buy two fuel lines if for the 500

    ktm numbers Fuel line x 2. Part # 77207016000

    Sounds good. I'll make sure to order the lines then. Didn't know if they would flip flop like you mentioned in one of your previous posts. I think I am either going to first try to just make extensions to lower straight down from the existing fan mounting holes on the bracket or if that isn't sufficient I will drill out the existing rivets, remove the bracket and extend the existing mounting points on the bracket to drop the entire bracket while still using the existing rivet holes. Ha hopefully that makes sense. Thanks again
