Sub frame tank

Well, I do have it unpackaged and read through the instructions. Looks pretty straight forward. As soon as I get the fan kit, disassembly will start.




I am also digging the quality of the HDB hand guards.

The Dirt Bike February issue says their "came stock with a fan".
Does that just mean the one delivered to them had the accessory fan kit already added ?

Thanks for the heads up on the HDB hanguards - you just ordered the KTM ones ?

I noticed the fan remark in the DirtBike article too, it must have been added before being sent to them to test. The two that have come in to our local shop (mine and one still for sale) do not have fans. I think the kit retails for the $150 range, I haven't paid for it yet, so it may be a little off.

Yeah, the HDBs are the KTM spec, but measure the bar mounts for the correct size. There are about 6 or 8 KTM sizes offered.

Thanks.

Yeah, the more I looked, the more I found with the guards.
And the more confused I got.

Just doing preliminary work right now, but I can see a 570 in my future.

They stated the Berg & KTM 'Footpeg & Seat Heights' are the same, SO
does this mean 'Seat to Peg' height is the same [break out your tape measures boys]

It also says the Berg has Faithful Ratios from the XCW & the exact same KTM gears [im sold on this]

Im getting more Pumped on the Berg

I can attest that the seat to peg distance is less on the Berg. It feels a little more leg cramped than my old 525. Have not compared it to the 530.

Quick measurement on mine in the garage has:

* top of the peg to seat: 19.5 - 20 inches +/-

* ground to bottom of the peg: ~16 inches

* ground to seat: ~37 inches

I've got a low seat on mine, though, which I think is about .5 inches lower than stock, so not a huge difference.

Note that the specs in the manual say the seat height is 38.78 inches. I think I can account for some of the difference in mine vs spec in that Bart likes about a centimeter more static sag than what the manual calls for and the fork tubes dropped a little to compensate so that's how mine's set up, and also the low seat.

The manual also says 15.35 inches of ground clearance. I measured 16 inches to the bottom of the peg, I did not measure to the bottom of the cases, though. Pretty close.

Hope this helps.

They don't come with the fan off the showroom floor, but the fan is highly recommended if you do any technical riding. Also, wrapping the header section which is between the front header and the silencer; cuts down the heat from that area and it doesn't transfer as much heat to the gas tank.

I knew that the pre-2011 570s didn't come with the fan, but the wording on the Dirtbike article sounded like that may have changed. TL confirmed that his 2011 didn't have one stock, so the one Dirtbike got must have had the kit added before they tested it. Just something I think they should have mentioned, but not a huge deal.

Fuel pump failure?

Hi Berg-Fans,

my 09-FE570 developed some problems after passing this minor jump:

THe Engine stalled in the same way like my 990 Adventure did when the fuel pump was faulty, breething sound from the filter and rapidly slowing down revs of the engine (as if no fuel would be delivered)

Surprisingly this bigger jump with harder landing was no issue at all

This repeated on several rounds on the track. I've got the feeling, when jumping from down to up (like a "parabel"), maybe the fuel (tank was half full) goes up and the pump is sucking air? Might this be a reason or is this not possible? I hope i don't have to replace the pump, since the warranty is already expired.

Please help me with good advises for self assistance, as the next dealer is 2 countries away...

Greetings
