My dealer recommends 4.8 N/mm front and around 80 N/mm rear.
I can not be the only heavy person riding a Husaberg, what springs do you use?
The bike will be used for enduro and maybe at the dirt track now and then.
I am around 230 lbs. naked and I run 48's in the front and an 8.4 in the back.

Call Bart or Ben at Genuine Dirt Racer Products. They are the East Coast Berg gurus and are doing a lot of R&D for WP on the Bergs.

They'll set you up with springs and Berg specific suspension advice.

total fuel is 4.2 gallons now....30-35 mpg......

no sub tank...4.2 is plenty 99% of the time...if more is needed I strap on a 6l fuel bladder...

the tank is non intrusive and takes a beating.....

I bought them slightly used off of KTMTalk.com. I think I paid around $100 total.

What springs do you need? I know a guy with a set of 4.8/8.0s that is looking to sell.

Hope someone can help. I'm wondering what the output of the stator is on the 570? Can't find it anywhere.

TIA

Picked up my suspension today. It is now fitted with .48kg/mm fork springs and a P20 rear spring. Revalve fork and rear shock and fit telescopic needle to shock.
Weigh 104kg.

I've been studying up on these Bergs

I Love the Extra 55cc's over the little 530 EXC.

Does the 70 Degree Aux Sub Frame 1gal Tank have its own filler neck & cap,
or does it fill from the stock 2.2gal tank ??

Pics installed ?? [ive seen the 70degree website]

.
Does the 570 S have a Wide Ratio Tranny comparable to the EXC box ??

.
