Thanks for the input. That may be an issue in the soft stuff...I need to reevaluate and maybe just add both tanks...

I feel that the imbalance created by the extra weigt high up on the back without the extra weight up front to give it some balance will make your bike handle really "interesting".
I mostly now ride without the rear tank altogether....

Lowering Options

Picked up a FE570S. Great bike, but way to tall for me. I want to lower it at least 2 inches. I searched a bit, but don't know which rear springs to use. Does Husaberg have some shorter springs? I saw reference to some Yamaha springs, but they did not seem to achieve a 2in lowering. Do you need to modify the existing springs?

Thanks,
/Doug

electrical connectors

Forgive the frustration, but I don't think I've ever hated a bike more till now. The PO butchered the wiring harness and I'm trying to rebuild while flying blind. 2010 FE390, for blinkers, did anyone have to buy harness for front or rear? What did CEV flasher plug into? For rear flashers, I am currently eyeing up KTM part 77411081000 to plug into connector buy the battery. It looks correct, but not sure. Did you guys need to buy a harness for the front flashers/CEV switch? I have the sickass LED's, flasher relay, and diode fix but there isn't a single connector to mate them to. Perhaps I just need to dig farther.

Here is the current ugliness at the mask:




Additionally, is there something notorious that the seat can get hung up on? I can not get rid of a gap at the front for the life of me!

I can't help you much w/ the wiring, but if you call Sicass, I bet they can. They have been helpful w/ my FX450 in the past.

The tank/seat gap in your pic doesn't look right. Are the barbs/prongs in the front going into their slots properly? They can be fiddley. If you can lift the front edges of the seat, they aren't in right.

Look around the web for the CEV wiring diagram. You shouldn't need a harness, just make your own. I don't remember my seat looking like that..



I got a stihl top handle saw. no more saw handle jabbing me in the back. weighs a ton less too.


tied down with one cinch strap. feels very secure

How would shorter springs help? The same results could be achieved by simply loosening up the preload adjuster on the stock spring. Other than increasing the sag, the only way to lower the rear is to decrease the shock travel with an internal shim and/or add a Synergy X-Bushing.

Like the other poster mentioned, you need to put a shim in the rear shock.

I'm 5'8" and lowered my rear travel 35mm. I used front springs from a modern kyb fork(06+) which are 30mm shorter. the rear spring is stock.

I wouldn't want the bike any shorter, and frankly now it is perfect for me. Lowering it gives me much more confidence in every situation.

Unless you are <5'4", 2" lowered is way too much.

Does the FE570S have a low seat option??

I put the low seat option on my FE450 when I first bought it. At first I thought it was still a bit too tall, but I persevered and am now used to it.

Seat Concepts make a lower seat version for Bergs - they may have one that is suitable.

Btw, W3UB has a Renazco seat on that bike. Maybe he would be interested in a trade for a lower, shaved seat?

i have the wire diagram on .pdf if you need. i believe the flasher plugs into the front turn signal harness. has both signal leads, a plug into the main harness, a plug for the flasher switch and a plug for the flasher itself.

i'm not putting flashers on mine unless they make me, but i was looking at how it's fitted. on my '09 there is an unused 2 pole plug at the front and one at the back, i assumed these were the turn signal connectors. they are 2 pole molex. (i've added everything other than signals, and this is the only unused plug)

for the seat, there are 2 prongs at the top of the tank and 2 at the middle on the subframe. you have to put the seat in position and push down & forward to engage all 4 prongs at the same time, then push the back down into the latch.

good luck, hope that helps!

gonna attach the tug strap to the two rear subframe bolts between the frame & fender and add my tail bag. problem solved, thanks!

edit:

forgot to mention how gnarly that bike stand is! must weigh 50lbs?? very cool!
