I was standing out of the frame. I didn't want to strain myself.

The FE570 is the first bike since my 950SE (of almost 4 years) to get a rise out of me. Especially since I heard the 2011's are going to be 50-state street legal. Probably too much bike for NC, though. The SE is too, but it makes a good street bike, even if that seems like a waste. Most of our good off-pavement riding is being gated or paved. Damn Halfbacks.

Blue would have ran me about $500 more. Apparently my awesomeness is limited by my checking account.

Ganshert,what gearing do you run with ths SM wheels?I'd like to find a combo to use and not have to shorten my chain.I picked up a used set of 17" wheels,has a 42 cog on it,seems kinda small even if I use a 15 cs cog.

I've played around with several different combos. I think I'm running the same as the FS570 now. To do that you would have to shorten your chain.

14/50 on 18" and 14/48 on 17" with a axel block flip keeps chain adjustment the same. Cruising at 65+ no problem.

bump. no posts in over a year, does this mean no one is finding the fe570 awesome anymore?

this thread was a major motivation for a few of us to buy 570s before the 2012 models sold out completely since the 70 degrees engine will now be a thing of the past. and it inspired the following slightly silly video...

Fookin awesome Mate......great vid. After 20 weeks in the shop I was ready to give up on my 570. It finally got sorted & huasberg paid for everything ,including the misdiagnosis by the dealer. I love it now, all stock except for narrower ktm fatbars, which made all the difference in the handling. Think I will go ride er some.

cheers, ww. that's a bummer on all the fuel pump issues with your bike. it seems the 70 degree engine has been a winner except for the dodgy fuel pumps pre- oct 2011 and fuel filters that were too fine and clogged easily. they finally get it completely sorted and then stop making them for 2013! anyway there are entire threads dedicated to that bizarre move...

i've got a fuel sock in the top of the tank now to act as a first fuel filter just to be safe, takes ages to fill but could prevent issues down the line. my main problem is the fe570 has overly excessive amounts of awesomeness but i shouldn't complain. geared up, cush drive hub, rekluse clutch and it's fine spinning along the highway, dirt roads or the gnarly stuff. a total pleasure to ride.

I do also have the rad fan w engine ice coolant , cycras hand guards, fuel sock , 13/50 gearing.. I run full offroad tires all the time. I dont have to ride far on the road to get to the trails I would love some s/m wheels & cush drive. I just dont care that much about street riding these days unless it a good Dualsport type ride..

Ganshert,

I read your first thread regarding using the stock subframe as fuel tank. Did it work? If so, can you
Enlighten me, parts used, etc.....?

I love this bike. It puts a big grin on my face everytime I ride it.
