Dear All,

Best wishes for Christmas past and the coming year.

1) I am hunting for a new front disc for my KLE 500. The OEM part is upwards of R4k ex Japan which is a joke. I have seen a few threads on people who might be able to provide a (safe) aftermarket disc, but was wondering whether there was something here in Cape Town and also wanted to see if i could get updated contacts. The previous threads were quite old.

I can have one made by a guy i met (bike shop) but the chap says i need to use a specific pad with the steel he will use, which is not optimal.

2) Muffler. The muffler on the bike is still the OEM part, but has a couple holes in the baffles. With regards to 'slip-on' exhausts - am i correct in that the general procedure is to cut the original off before the pipe flares into the muffler, and then just (weld / clamp?) the new slip on muffler on?

Many thanks for the advice in advance,
Regards
JB

I would order the disc from the UK or USA. Not sure if Tusk makes discs for the KLE, but for the KLR it is about $70 +shipping and taxes. Otherwise get try to get an EBC one.

If anyone is interested, i found the following online - apparently the KTM muffler fits nicely onto the existing pipework (50mm). I haven't tried it yet, but at least this gives some idea.

Cheers
JB
