I just picked up a Fastway steering stab. I spent a lot of time researching them Scott's and GPR. They in my opinion better made and the mechanical effiancy is much better.

Can you explain what you mean by that?

Good luck.
My dealer charges $9200 for the EXC-F 350 and $9500 for the 500 EXC. This includes Cycra hand guards, a skid plate and first service. No dealer prep and destination charges, so pretty close to the price posted above all-in. That is their 'deal' and all they carry is dirt bikes. No street bikes at all. My son took delivery of a 350 last Friday.

It's a little tiny race shop called Cliff's Cycles in Norfolk, MA. They have a large following. Been in the same little building since the late 60's when they sold Hodaka, CZ, Maico and Tohatsu. Today it's KTM/Husaberg. My kind of shop. Ask for Frank. He's been there since he was a boy racer.

4 gallon fuel tank needed

I need a 4 gallon fuel tank for my 2012 500EXC. IMS has a 3 gallon tank in the works but no plans for a 4 gallon.

If you are like me and need the fuel range a 4 gallon fuel tank provides, please join me in sending e-mails to IMS asking them to build one.

You can reach IMS at: imsproducts.com

Thanks.

So, if I'm correct, 13L = 3.4 gallons. The fuel tank looks bigger than that. I really need a full 4 gallons to be able to complete many of the loops I ride in Death Valley and have some to spare in case I have to back track for one reason or another.

15L would = 3.963 gallons and that would be good enough if anyone builds one.

So what Part# did you use for your 500 EXC?
I was looking over part numbers and didn't see one for the 2012 500 EXC.....

I don't believe they have the part numbers up on their website yet. I contacted Justin Cole directly at Fastway and have been working with him on this for a while. They have two different versions. One version retains the stock bar clamp spacing, however the steering stabilizer is rotated hundred and 180 from normal so the controls are upfront close to the bar. This is common with most of the bar mounts where people want to retain the stock bar clamp spacing.

You I didn't like that I like the controls facing me. I ended up going with The Fastway mount which orientates the controls back towards the rider and it does offset the handlebar spacing on its horizontal access a bit. My challenge was I am a firm believer in HighwayDirtBike his products and use his top clamp and bar guards. Currently Paul doesn't have a production model at HighwayDirtBike for this specific Fastway product that I have. However he has all the dimensions and it's on his list of things to do. I'm going to modify the one I currently have two make it work until Paul gets the fast way clamps into production.

I will PM you Justin's contact information.


here is a link to there site that has a accurate renditon of what I eneded up with. http://www.promotobillet.com/catalog...ID=639&image=1

But Just wait until I get the finished highwaydirtbike product on as well. They are both fantastic products and both companies put tremendous effort into quality, fit, functionality, and finish. I will post up pics when I get the final top clamp in and installed. This may be a while as Paul is a very very busy guy.

I just installed the HDB set-up on my new-to-me FE570 Berg.
