My reason for this is that it's alot easier (here) to find a fine KTM 530 vs a Husaberg 570
plus they are cheaper... (I'm thinking of a -09 KTM if I go that route)

I do like the carb and the kickstarter on the KTM,
but I still prefer the Husaberg ( Blue & Yellow at birth )

1: Who told you the Husaberg was easy to maintain?

2: Where is question number two?

Whats wrong with orange and black?

The 530 may need the 2011 cam installed, but this was not among your questions.

The 530 is super easy to maintain, as is the husa. You will be happy with either color.
