Those are nice rads. I haven't come close to overheating on my FE390 standard rads w/fan, but if I ever ruin one of the OEM's I'll likely go to the Mylers units. I have the blue BRP rad guards right now and they are great.

My plan is to purchase it, and either fit a different caliper (if possible) or an entire different front end set up with the correct caliper for the FE. It would be nice to have a set up ready allowing me to change the bike from sm to enduro relatively easy.

I am currently thinking of getting a used set of 48mm wp forks with the caliper and brake lever/resv. to swap out. Another oprtion is to purchase the lower fork legs and swap them into the uppers providing me with the correct fork ends for the FE caliper option. The FS forks are about 3/4" shorter than the FE and the rear is roughly the same.

Ideally I would buy an FE as most of my use will be dirt riding, but they are few and far between and the FS is new and priced well. Good enough that if I rework all the suspension and brakes I will still be below the cost than a new ktm 500.

Curious of what some thoughts are on this idea.

thanks in advance

Sounds like a good plan!
FYI Simi Valley Harley/husaberg in Cali has a brand new 2011 fe570s still for $7900, could ship it up there for under $500 I bet using uship.com
Malcolm Smith motorsports had Malcoms personal low hour fe570 for $5900 last time I was in there.

Either way good luck, it's a great bike and worth the effort.

Cheers

Getting a rekluse z-start? Can the hydraulic clutch lever be left on and used? It's going on a 10 570

Edit- found the answer on the rekluse site. Looks like I can keep and use the lever. Does anyone have any input on how well the lever works afterwards?

I can vouch for it - I have an '11 FE570, with a Rekluse CoreEXP (and their own adjustable clutch slave cylinder - which makes adjusting the Rekluse a trailside task). I kept the stock clutch in place.

I have a Z-Start pro for my 2011 FE570.. yes you can keep the standard clutch lever,, but it doesnt do much once you install the Rekluse. I could never get the Rekluse set so it didnt drag constantly .. the bike always wanted to creep forward a bit.. even with the clutch in. It is a common problem with Rekluse and Husaberg,, and KTM from what my dealer told me. I took the Rekluse out, but have been toying with putting it back in to try a different engagement setting. IMHO it is worth the money to get the Core EXP to retain your original clutch feel ... or just get the EXP .. no reason to spend the extra money for a Z-start.

Checked both shops, and the were both gone. I would gladly take a used bike if I could find one priced well, otherwise I may own a 570 by the weeks end. Which would be nice since it is going to be a balmy 45 deg. in MT.

How much below? While I personally love my 570, if I were to do it all again I would by a new KTM 500. The amount of support for the bike, the fact that it is a new model that will have several years of production in the future, the fact that the 70 degree is now dead, the lack of reasonably cost extra fuel capacity, the small Husa dealer network. You live in MT.. I have spent a lot of time in MT fishing,,never riding, but I have to assume the opportunity to ride long distance is there?? A 4 gallon Safari tank for a KTM 500 is $300 cheaper than one for a 570, plus it is all one unit,,no piggie back. You will see big name companies like Wolfman and Kriega design gear specifically for the 500 because there will be 10x the ammount of them on the road than the 570. Listen I love my FE570, totally cool bike, but give me a chance to do it all over again.. I would buy a KTM 500 in a heartbeat. Flame away

edit: I guess if you can still use the SM setup then maybe I would go with the 570.. Bipolar checking out

Totally agree with you! Especially seeing what the 500's are selling or now.

Have you ridden a new KTM EXC500? I have, and while it is lighter, smaller and nimbler, it also vibrates far worse than the smooth FE570 and the very smooth FE390 at dual-sport freeway speeds. The KTM Corporate guys admitted as much at last years KTM Rally I attended. For me reduced vibes is more important for true dual-sporting than easily finding a larger fuel tank. YMMV. I know 70degree FE's are "gone" but still out there to be found. EXC500 reliability is still an open question too.

Fair enough, if you don't need a smooth bike for long DS rides like cyborg said it would be another option, for me the biggest problem with buying a 500 is it's Orange!

There's no issues with parts support for the FE's that I have found. To have a nice used FE570 and an FS 570 for then same price as an unproven (for the long haul) 500 is a no brainer to me…

Once someone puts 13,000+ relatively trouble free miles, or goes 2500 miles between oil changes without damaging the motor, then I'll consider the 500 as a viable option as a lightweight ADV bike, until then I have mine.

Below enough that even if I ordered a new front end from the factory at cost (offered by dealer). I would still be under the cost of a new 500. I also like the 570 better and after riding Beta's upon his return through South and Central America I was hooked. The bike just sings to me. It is just finding one that can prove difficult which is why I am debating the FS. Currently chasing a lead on one in Idaho so I might not have to bother with the alterations etc. Thanks for the input fellas. If anyone is lusting after a 500 and want to make me a good deal on their 570.......

Hey I'm with ya.. I bought my FE based largely upon Barton and Crew's experiences and I am glad I have it,, I am just frustrated with the fuel thing right now.

Besides in MT wouldnt you be better off with this http://motorcycles.yakaz.com/bmw-g65...07hudnlq8003vu

Chilipepper and mrt10x, get the Rekluse EXP or even better Core EXP!

I've had several zStart Pro's and the Core EXP is much better and the clutch action is just like stock, unlike the mushy zStart clutch action. No creeping either with the EXP.

http://www.rekluse.com/exp.shtml


Rekluse now offers an external adjustable clutch slave for the auto-clutch and the auto-clutch can be adjusted and even disabled externally with just an Allen wrench, in case you need to try and push start it.

http://www.slavensracing.com/shop/ad...ktm-by-rekluse



I REALLY like my Core EXP on my 390 and it has so far been bulletproof. Rode the brutal Rainbow Trail in Colorado with it and it helped a lot to ease the workload..
