I bought two tubes....thinking it would be nice to have a spare....and then I found out it will only fit on a subframe fuel tank because it does not have the structure for the emissions stuff.

I posted that here but to find it is a "challenge".

The "secret compartment" is a good alternative IMO. I think you could store three tire irons and a tube in that space.

Alum front, yes. Thanks.

I've been using a 1gal MSR bladder in one side of the Mojave and a 2gal in one side of a Coyote bag, but would be nice to not lose half of my carry space to gas...but goddamn that thing is expensive

Hmm, no idea why your tire would hit it unless you have a really big rear tire. I run a 130/80-18 tire and it does not touch it.

I have seen two other FE570's run it the same way (my inspiration to do it) and their tires don't hit it either.

Ok, I have read thru this whole thread twice in the last year and know the information is in here somewhere but can't seem to find it now that I need it.

What are the spare wires for/do behind the headlight of the 2011 FE 570? Are any of them "accessory" plugs? Two wires down by the head tube with clear caps look promising. I am a wiring and electrical noob.

Want to be able to wire in some grip warmers and maybe figure how to get a USB port in there also to charge the phone and IPad.

I have the FE570s ..street legal and there are still wires up front that are connected to nothing... including two wires with clear caps on them.. I know that is zero help,,, but be careful and hopefully someone will post an actual helpful answer soon

It's the stock OEM taillight that came with my 2011 FE390. It is a dual-element LED and after I added all the other dual-sport lighting package (harness, brake switches, etc) it works great, but pretty minimalist.

I like that tail section a lot more than the one that came on my 2011 fs570. Looks like I will be searching for some berg/ktm parts real soon... Now I feel like my bike is the ugly duckling :sad.

ambre_OWNZ, your taillight/blinkers looks like the one that come on official "street legal" FE/FS Husaberg kits. My 390 was sold as a "dirt" offroad-only version and converted by me to street-legal and turns out the dirt version of the taillight assy is in fact a dual-element (brake/running) taillight so I left it. My blinkers cam from Sicass Racing for example. Your setup will definitely be seen better in traffic when dual-sporting it.

IMO - the nicest tail assembly comes from Paul Williams aka PW_Garfield. It's uses the stock Euro sub-fender with a special LED light, super compact and it includes a license plate light unlike the Euro tail light that Cyborg uses (our Euro bikes actually have a second big ass ugly piece hanging off the tail that has a plate light on it). This is required to be street legal in a lot of countries (in Europe it even needs "E" markings on it), and I swapped mine out for that reason.

He sells them on all the forums and Ebay, about the same money as the Euro parts.

Have any of you had any issues of your fuel pump not working when the bike is still hot? Rode it for about an hour then shut it off to get some fuel, tried to start it back up but the fuel pump wouldn't kick on. So I let it sit for about 45 minutes and it fired up. It's still under warranty so I'm bringing it in tomorrow, just wondering if anyone else has come across that problem like I have

Not trying to sound like a jerk but I think there are a bunch of guys that have. I think there must be at least 20 pages dedicated to this issue. Bad fuel pump. Dealer should replace it with a black topped one? Tight tolerances in pump. Hot fuel and bike make it seize after getting shut off. Have to let it cool. Keep blipping the starter and listening for the fuel pump whirl. No whirl equals no start.
