Raising the bar(s?

Even though this is a generic question, I figured this would be the right place as it's for my FE...

My bars are too low. What can I do to raise them? Right now, when I stand I feel I am hunched forwards a little, which is uncomfortable for extended periods - hence I find myself in the seat way too much.

I have (well, had) a set of the Enduro Engineering risers to give me an extra inch, but it seems that when I took my recent wrist breaking fall, I managed to actually bend one of the mounting bolts. Doesn't say much for the quality of bolt supplied does it?

My feeling is I need to raise the bars a good 2" from stock - and I already have the bars rotated to where the bend gives me the most rise. I don't want to go too far and have to deal with extending all the wires and the brake/clutch lines.

Are there any options that will use both holes on the triple clamp for additional strength/stability?

Oh, and only slightly related - switch clusters - can anyone recommend a good left-side cluster that's narrow, but will still have switches for all the usual lights (high/low/off), indicators & horn?

Highway dirtbike for 2 bolt bar risers paul will make them to the height you want or make them lower and add in universal spacer type bar risers for adjustment.

What switch cluster are you using? The oem cev units are pretty slim

+1 on both counts.

CEV unit (stock on Euro and OZ bikes, some US ones as well, part numbers were posted here many times) is very narrow and has all the functions except a starter button.

The HDB system is bomb proof as it uses 4x M10 bolts for mounting. I have at least 2" if not 3" of rise and can still use the stock clutch line and throttle cable, just rotate the cable feed to the bottom. Doubles as a submount for a Scotts damper if you eventually install one.

I use the RallyRaid billet bar riders with built in Scotts damper mount, very solid piece of kit.

There are also four addition M6 threaded holes on the top clamp should you ever want to bolt on additional gear.

I use the rally raid riser with an hdb topclamp, the riser is very nice and in conjunction with the 3 hole factory clamps works for me, the hdb riser came out about a week after I bought the rallly raid one, in preference i would have gone for the hdb version as even with shipping costs to the uk I think it would have been cheaper than the rally raid bar riser

Steve and Ian,

Have you guys checked if the RR UK riser has the right damper mount geometry for the Husaberg triple clamps? They have less offset than the 690 ones, which I believe this mount was originally designed for.

An easy way to check is if connecting line of the two M6 damper mounting holes intersects with the centerline of the steering stem. If it's off by more than 1 or 2mm the damper will act progressively and place some additional stress on the seals.

I used a SicAss Racing switch when I plated my FE450. Quality seems to be good.



I also installed their start/kill switch on the right.



For raising the bars, I used a Scotts dampener plus 10mm from an Enduro Engineering riser. I also switched to Motion Pro throttle cables to give me adjustment ability without removing the tank. I got a custom cable that is 1" longer than stock. I wish I had gone 2".

Hi Lukas, I'm not running a steering damper so haven't checked, when I get my bile back from its annual check up I'll try and remember to have a look

H! D! B! Great product. Fantastic customer service.





I might have the part numbers for the switches at home...I'll check.

I agree with the HDB recommendation. Very happy with his work.



Bike packed and ready to ride a portion of the Trans Eastern Trail up to Hampton, TN tomorrow. Pretty excited.

Some packed pics;

Just thought I would say a G'day.

I just bought a brand new 2009 0kms FE570 from the Husaberg dealer here in Tasmania.

The last new 570??

Good result. Happy boy!!

an excellent choice! i compiled a few of the typical mods for a new one here. i would add getting a cush drive hub if you plan on a fair bit of road use, or just a pile of miles adventure riding as the countershaft can wear prematurely in those conditions.

Yes there will be a few things I need to do to the bike.

Taking it though Mongolia and Siberia next year.

Will read your thread so thanks for the info.

Repair or replace?

The bottom tube is pretty banged up


Myler's?

Not finding a defacto list of aftermarket options
Misomoto?
OEM + BP rad guards?
