short rider report

Here are a few shots from a ride I did with a buddy of mine this weekend. Great weekend! The new fuel pump GDR installed worked flawlessly!

Question regarding race fuel for a 2011 570.

Iím running Pikes Peak again this year but on my new 2011 570 and Iíve a question as to my race fuel choice. To stay within the rules of Iíve narrowed it down to one fuel, Sonoco MO2X, this is the same fuel I used last year on a different bike with good results. The bike was a BMW G650 X Challenge and the MO2X Unleaded was recommended by a Sonoco tech.. I think Iím somewhat safe in assuming that if the BMW had no issues with the fuel the 570 will be just fine.

So my question is, will running the leaded version of this fuel adversely affect the 570 in any way? As the leaded version is allot easier to find than the unleaded version it would make things a bit easier on the logistics. Iíve been told by a distributor that if the bike doesnít have an oxygen sensor then leaded fuel is ok and the higher octane 112 vs. 97 will yield better results. Hell I donít even know if the 570 has an oxygen sensor or not. I'm a mid pack rider with zero chance of a top 5 finish but will still be as competitive as possible, at the same time I'm not looking to burn a fuel that is going to cause engine longevity issues.

And in case you're not familiar with Pikes Peak, the race starts at 9,800' above sea level and finishes at 14,000'.

Thoughts?

Motorsports 103 is great stuff and O2 sensor safe, ran it in a Rally car, mini bike, generator, CRF230 and mt KTM.

A friend at work got a very, very good deal on a 570 motard late last week and has been asking me quite a few questions since I have had a FE450 for a while.
I got an email from him this morning asking me what I thought about this - it is an RFID key that wires into your starter relay.

Here is the link:-http://www.digitalguarddawg.com/

Seem s like a good idea if you are worried about security.....it is a t least another solution. Bit pricey though!!

Keyswitch from a DRZ400? fits easily. About $40 and come with a mounting bracket. Contacts are a bit strange - wire the starter and fuel pump to it. You can source mating connectors for the harnesses and not have to worry about cutting the one on your bike. That way you can unplug the switch and return the wiring to stock.

www.easternbeaver.com has most of the connectors you'll need. NAPA or similar auto parts store will have the rest.

Thanks!

Close, 14X44 I just cant seem to get the top end speed from my 48 and the stock 38 is like taking a gear away. You might be thinking "stock 38??", yeah I have the supermoto 570

Yes 17's running Avon Pro extreme rain tires (same as I ran last year). I love these tires as they basically are a hard race rain and they stand up really well to dry pavement where my Michelin race rains will burn up with only a little dry pavement. A few of the top guns are running cut race slicks but I've not the balls or the skill to give up that much traction on the dirt sections.

As for the fuel question I posted earlier. I've done more digging and apparently due to our 11.8:1 compression motors a high octane fuel will actually decrease power and yes leaded fuel will hurt the o2 sensor. Pikes Peak is a lot of things, one thing for sure is that its a horsepower race.

Does anyone have the best fit tire size info for this set up on FE570S?

The stock tires are 90/90 and 140/80.

Remember that the OEM Six Days 140/80 is measured from side knob to side knob and not carcass width as on most tyres.

Just replaced my rear tyre with a Maxxis 120/100 - 18 which fits well. I do not think a normal 140/80 - 18 would even fit in the rear swingarm on the Bergs, or would be very tight.

Thanks. I was hoping someone would have already mounted a set and could give me the exact size info.

Just mounted the new Seat Concepts kit, came out pretty good:









I'm the first one to order it so Robert at Seat Concepts wants me to be the guinea pig. Didn't get a chance to ride it yet but it definitely has a much wider middle seating area, but still thin across the front near the tank.

I went with the stock height kit, but they do offer a 15mm lower version.

The quality of the cover and stitching is excellent, I went with the gripper top with faux carbon fiber sides. The foam density fells slightly softer than the stock KTM foam, which should be pretty nice compared.

I will report back after the first test ride.
