For those with any interest - or for anyone with an out-of-state FE570 thinking of moving to CA... Here's the document that you might need at the CA DMV in order to register your 2011+ FE570 and get a CA plate.

I'm now qualified to post in this thread.

Just came home w/ a new to me '10 450FX. Street legal, 63 hrs, FMF can, Sicass lighting kit, suspension done, very nice shape.

Only ridden it around the block so far - feels great, wheelies easy.

Tomorrow's gonna be fun.

Sounds like a cool trip! How did you like the Squadron LED? Did you do any night riding with it?

Haven't used the Squadron much yet at night. Didn't do any night riding in Moab. Took it out for a spin in the desert near Vegas one evening. It's extremely bright on high, and lit up the desert! I use the dimmer module to set the low beam at 20%, which seems OK for the street.

That is the Squadron kit that comes with the Polisport mask.

Personally I don't like that one as much. Depending on which mask you have now, you can get the 08+ KTM kit and it should bolt right on, or if you have the Euro style mask then get the 05-07 KTM kit and do the mods as described perfectly by Cyborg here:

if you want to use your OEM mask you can order the KTM kit as well



The thing is insanely bright.. makes night riding a breeze... please excuse the dirty bike. it is plug and play.. the fader is kind of big and hard to get behind the mask.. but it was simple.. I suck at anything electronic and even I could install it. You need to dremel down some plastic on the tab to get it adjusted low enough..but it is no big deal.
