HI guys
Sure SWMRS500 check this with the dealer !! . Some had this problem on the forum ' ADV " I assume . After changing no problem.
Fortunately my local mechanics ( not the dealer who is very far , 150 K ) is a former enduro and cross racer himself and used to handle the bikes for others , especially husky 510 09' and used to change often piston/cylinder on these bikes ( which he appreciates anyway) .....so so
now his thought : with double oil pump and low HP, it is a very good bike ...
At this moment he is finishing his job : new parts ( silencer, plate, radiator guard, handling the battery , some electricity) to make it a
raid bike ..... 4000 k in ARAGON in may, mates....

any suggestions out there, love the bike, it suits me well.
That black slime might be water pump.seal.failure... Need to take it back and get them to check it. Mine failed 500klms in. Alone with some ECU problems. Don't keep riding it.
