I think so too. Now all I have to do is spend countless evenings going through forums to learn all about it, the only thing I really know about it is it looks really good and goes like stink. From a XR650L to this......WOW!!!!!! I've seen Husaberg.org mentioned on here, anywhere else for info on this 05?

today was a good day.

1) after almost 5 months of waiting, my SM kit finally shipped (wheels, cush drive, fender et al)
2) scored a used set of SM forks including Beringer radial caliper, rotor, master cylinder, axle and all bolts

now I've got to find some tires. I like Michelin Pilots but am wondering about Avons - can't beat their warranty. I'm told you can run a 160 rear with the rim/offset.

anyone have experience with Avons?

I can pick it up for ya Ray. That's what buds do...

Jeff did say he wants to blow out the last two '09s. Time to make that deal.

(oh yeah, there's likely another set of SM forks available)

f'in 'tard!

My motard kit arrived last week. It's pretty cool. Husaberg sells a kit which includes a couple of wheels, cush drive, rotors, caliper bracket and a bunch of fasteners. It will allow you to turn an otherwise great enduro bike into a street weapon.

Add to this mix a set of WP SM forks off of a KTM 450 SM. I found these on eBay ready for a radial brake. I contacted the seller on the chance that he'd have other bits and scored a radial Beringer 4 pot caliper and master cylinder/lever assembly with Braking Systems 320mm rotor.

I figured out the additional parts I'd need to make this quick change. By adding a speedo cable and a brake switch, the front end bolts on/off in 15 minutes. The rear is similar once I get another sprocket assembly.

The only fussy bit was the sidestand. It needs a lower version due to the 17" wheels/tires. I simply ordered another stock version and cut my old one down, welding a 1/4" piece of aluminum stock to the bottom as a foot. Works well.

I took the bike for a ride today. Went north to Lynnwood, hoping to stop by Lynnwood Motoplex. (they were closed) So I headed west on 196th towards the water and south to Edmonds. After lunch and a beer at Engel's, I went the back bicycle roads down to Seattle. I stopped by Seattle Cycle Center before heading home.

No pics yet but should get some later this week. It's fun...

I ordered the replacement for my 650 this week. It should be in stock next week. I am a little concerned about the 570s fuel range. Has anyone here done the rear sub frame conversion into a gas tank?

It would be nice to hear how it is done.
