One of the outback owners over here has fitted a 600+ cc kit to his 570 which gives it identical compression to the 390, allowing it to handle the bit crappier fuel sometimes picked up out there. Last if read, he was very happy with it.

Barton has down over 30,000 (miles I presume) on his 570 with valve adjustments only. Lukas can give more info on this.

I am sweating on the spec of the forks and shock on the Husky 650, really hoping it is a lot better than the XChallenge was.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Im just not close enough to get the job done.
