Well I know many internals are more or less the same,
but that does not have to mean they are equally as good when it comes to service intervals and reliability.
It seems there are more to the 70 degree engine than simply big bore (or stroking) & tilting the cylinder...
I am quite familiar with what the FE 570 is capable of as a adventure engine, but I have a hard time to compare it to what the 530 can do maintenace wise.
Thanks for your input though
