Thanx
I have converted my 2011 FS570 over.

I replaced the front forks, Front brake caliper and master cylinder, wheel set and front fender with ebay KTM parts. I can switch back to Supermoto at any time.

What % do you use it as a SM vs Enduro? Also, does the SM come with a cush drive?

Yes the FS has a very nice cush drive wheel stock, which is even tubeless!

The triples on the FS also have quite a bit less offset at 14-16mm vs. FE 20 or 22mm depending on the year. This is not ideal for woods and tight stuff, but a good thing for high speed stability. I'm going to fit a set before my next rally, even with a stabilizer it moves around too much for me over 75-80 mph or so.

I came across a 570 SM that I can get for a great price, but have really been wanting the enduro. SM looks like it would be a lot fun though. I live in a rural area, so open roads for miles on end. Makes for a hard decision...

incorrect. the caliper on the FS will not clear the 21" wheel. your wr250 had a different (smaller) caliper and it would work with the 21". i know, i have had both....

It is cheaper and easier to put street tires on an woods bike than it is to put offroad wheels and tires and brakes and suspension on a supermoto bike.

Not if you are buying used stuff, as the supermoto parts are harder to find and worth more than enduro ones.

If you can find a FS cheaper and already titled go for it, you will be able to trade the parts and probably get some additional cash out of the deal.

a pair of street tires costs $250 for an 18/21

Probably even less than that, but you can't compare a FE with 21/18" street tires to a FS with properly set up suspension, 17" wheels, radial MC and 4 piston caliper with 320mm disc, triples with different geometry etc.

What I am saying is that if you want to have two complete offroad and supermoto setups to be able to swap and the bikes cost the same, it is far cheaper to start with a real supermoto.

An offroad front brake can be had used for about $100, triples $50-$200, forks $200-500, wheels $300-$500. Supermoto stuff will be 2-3 times that.

Agreed. I was under the impression that this guy was going to buy an FS because it was a deal...but he really wanted an offroad setup and was wondering how hard/$$$ it would be to convert. and its doable but may not be cheaper than finding an FE.

Biggest problem I'm finding is the rear shocks are quite a rare bird to find in the open mkt. Is there another bike that uses the same shock, which swaps over?

LukasM, the marchesini ktm 640 wheels are proving to be ~4mm too wide. I'm needing to mill the spacers. It is the actual wheel, not the spacers that are too wide. Hopefully it will all work out.

Range question for those with 70 degree tanks mounted... what sort of range are you getting?

I'm contemplating a Baja (Ensenada down to Cabo) trip and wonder if I have enough range... it's time for me to start thinking about getting lost

Went for a hard trail ride yesterday and towards the end of the ride I noticed my FI light flashing. It only done it with the engine off but ignition on while holding either brake. If I released the brake it stopped until i applied the brake again or if turned the ignition off then back on it stopped. Never did it while running. It was a very rapid flashing; like 4 to 5 per second. Couldn't tell any sort of long or short sequence. Any ideas?
