Hmmmm...wonder if there is something I am missing. With my bike warmed the clutch doesn't engage until the lever is about an inch and a half from the bar. That is adjusted in as far as the set screw will go.

I hear ya. Bought one for my Honda, got the Berg, and now the Honda is for sale without ever using the rekluse. $65 is a lot cheaper than $950 though. Trade you? Lol.

creep ....

anyone got any suggestions for solving my bike creep with the clutch in? i've bled the clutch through and replaced the slave unit while i was at it for a sigutech unit i had sat in my box. Bike doesnt stall if i sit with the brake on and the clutch in, but with the engine off and the clutch pulled in the bike will hardly move. any thoughts for what next?

thanks

my berg did this from brand new. two KTM EXCs had the same issue, and a pile of kato riders i know report the same thing. apparently the way to solve it is buy a japanese bike? if it's worse than normal though then the clutch basket could be notched and need a bit of filing to straighten things up again. nice little step by step guide here.

my cold start creep went away when I switched to Motorex 4t oil... dam expensive though.

Thumb 2009 570fe

Sorry did not read every post or know much about bergs.
I am looking at getting a 09 570FE. Is this bike road legal? It does not have lights signals etc and I know I have to get them. But after that is the ownership say it is road worthy or just an off road bike? Then if so what is the best way to hook up lights etc..
Thanks

There's only been reports of success from people buying the DOT approved items and plugging them into their 570s and getting street registered, even in California. Just read through the must have list for your state and bolt those on.
People around here will fail inspection due to things like non-DOT lights, missing plate light, no rear brake light switch, etc.

ok i need to eat my words, put the old lever back on just to test my clutch with that just in case (creep when hot was worse with the oem lever tbh) and the old lever measured 16lb pull so a reduction of 6lb on the pull is pretty good really.

In ontario the bike must have a green ownership. If the ownership is grey than you cannot make it street legal.
Some of the fe570s did come street legal in ontario, but some people may not have wanted it street legal and opted to just have an offroad ownership.
Ensure it has the correct ownership before purchasing it

Ok thanks for the heads up on that. The bike is regenerated in Alberta right now as an off road bike. It only had a headlight right now have to add tail light etc to it for inspection I assume. Any idea on ownerships in Alberta vs Ontario????
Thanks

Depends on the state. Here in Vermont I just had to install all of the appropriate lights and a horn (berg is prewired for them) and then go to a moto dealer where they give it a look over, fill out a form, and then you take that form to the DVM to register it. We have no emmissions currently in Vermont and much easier titling rules. I only had an MSO...but combined with the moto shop form I was good to go.

These worked well for me with the OEM fan on my FE390
