thanks for any help!

The 530 is much improved over the old 525, which wasnt nothing compared to
the 560/620/625/640
I can't speak to that never having ridden a KTM, but the vibes seem okay to me - less than my DR 350.

Can you fill this tank at the gas pump thru the Stock Tank opening ??
Kinda. As you have already read, there is a place that you could put gas into it if you were careful. I don't think that is its intention - I think it is more for flushing and draining. The hole seems a bit too small for filling - I've not tried it as it only takes a few seconds for the tanks to equalize and filling from the main tank is a lot easier.

If you read the posts, you'll see many people have them registered and plated, depending on how strict their states' guidelines are.
Yeah, it totally depends on your locale. The 2011 570s (not 390 or 450) are 50 state legal.

Most everything is there. You may have to add a few bits of wiring for each thing you install but they are bits you can buy online or from your dealer and they plug right in - not custom made (unless you want to). Some dealers like mine have already plugged in most of the bits - like the headlight and tail-light and will gladly add turn signals and horn if you want them.

The rest of the wiring and the charging system is the same as the newer 50 state legal bikes, there is almost no different in that respect. The charging system is something like 280 watts IIRC - plenty for standard lighting and charging and such, as long as you don't add a TV and fridge like some 'adventure' riders do.

Squeeeeeeeeeeee...... CLEAR! ..... THUMP!

So,

What happened to Codemonkee's berg? Did he ever get a Safari tank? Heated grips for the snow? Who shot JR?

Thought I would try applying the PAcker Whacker to this thread and see if it revives enoug to answer all these burning questions and more.

Chris

Or you can wade through the mega 70degree Owners thread http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=639366

or you can simply look at Husaberg's own website, no more 70degree.

http://www.husaberg.com/us.html

There are still new 570's for sale around the USA and plenty of used ones.

JUmped on my friends 2013 FE501 this weekend and just loved the thing. Light, nimble - makes my 690E feel piggy especially for the day rides without bags. So now I'm jonesing for a lightweight street legal enduro bike to supplement the 690e and 12GS stable.

The question is should I get the older 570. I like the berg-specific, 'classic' nature of the 70deg motor and the assumed displacement advantage, but I don't want a pita bike to service and farkle. I just want to do day rides on it and I'm not that demanding - I'm a noob on dirt and my bigger bikes are kinda dangerous for riders of my age (48) and experience level on technical trails. So considering the 570 really depends on answers to the following:

Are larger fuel tank options available?

Are servicing and parts difficult to get in Los Angeles?

Are these bikes really 250 lbs dry (has anyone weighed theirs?)

Are there mfr design problems (like my ktm's fuel pump, lighting, throttle snatchiness, etc)?

Do you think this is a significantly easier bike to learn dirt riding on than my 690e?

I'm sure these questions have all be addressed in this long thread, but maybe someone can give me a quick reply since I'm just starting to consider this bike and can't afford the time to sift through all the info out there. Thanks for the help.
