I was talking about the 2011 FE tracking vs the 2010 and 2009 FEs with the open cartridge forks.

2009 had the19mm vs and all 2010 had 22mm offset as well, you may well be right. I have never ridden an 09.

Tar heel, make some time to bring your bikes and come out to Wyoming this summer. OLBEN and I will try to find some Husaberg worthy trails to keep you busy.

First ride on the 570 was this past Saturday and my grin was much bigger then this when I finished.



Some ST for good measure.

I've got 4,300 miles and 170+ hours on my 570 ,checked the valves twice and they still don't need adjustment.

Are you going to do them yourself?

i miss the south west

that 570 would be a hoot in the open desert, but maybe a bit much here back east

Things are good here, It's been a wet and coldish December. I have only been here for a couple of years now and I am always finding some cool new place to explore. Looks like CO is in my future though as I travel for work there often. I don't know the trails in WV (just been rafting there) but I'll tell you with a Recluse and rear brake kit I can't imagine any place this bike wouldn't shine.

That sounds great!
How often are you changing your oil?
Have you had to do any other maintenance to the bike?

Has anyone tried to run a Giantloop Great Basin on their bike?
I was wondering how it fit?
Also, has anyone had any structural/mechanical issues from placing too much weight on the back, regardless of the type of luggage system, seeing that the bike has no subframe?

It really depends on how I've been riding it but probably every 200 to 300 "off road" miles.
I'll change it after one ride if it was real nasty/muddy and I was on the clutch alot but that's not too often.
