In the process of ordering up the radiator fan now that the temps are heating up. While I'm in there, thought I could throw some protection on the tank: Is there a general preference for the CV4 blanket over just coating the bottom of the tank with heat shield tape?

My CV4 blankie is shredded from the fan and wear against the bike. Save your $. It was only +70 yesterday and my fuel was boiling anyway.

Tire help

I bought a 2010 fe570 off of craigslist about 8 weeks ago. There has been a little trouble with the title so I haven't ridden it at all with the thought that if the title couldn't be resolved then maybe I could get my money back from the guy if it was exactly like it was when I picked it up. Anyway, last Friday I got the title so all is good.

I previously had purchased a blinker kit, horn, keyed ignition & mirrors from Sicass Racing but haven't even messed with it since the title was in limbo.

I have searched for this in a previous thread but can't find an answer. I have decided on Dunlop D606 because of mostly good reviews and that they are available locally and they will mount them. Now for the question, stock rear is 140/80-18, D606 is 130/90-18. I know the 606 is 10mm shorter and 10mm wider but is there concern with that? I am having a problem finding a front AND rear tire that match the factory size. The 606 does have a 90/90-21 for the front.

Answer or other suggestions very much appreciated.

Thanks, Don

no concern. I have run a 120 width rear tire on the back of my 690 without any issue.

I've run D606 rear on my FE 570, no problems from the tire, lasted about 1300 miles, 50% dirt. D606 is an excellent all around tire IMO that's easily found.
Though I run the Pirelli Scorpion Rally front in place of the D606 front. Very similar 50/50 DOT tire in most situations but with better high speed gravel road traction and better milage with more even wearing knobs, for me at least. The D606 front wears with alternating single knobs staying tall and the double knobs wearing down with my about 50% pavement riding. But since we're in different parts of the country on different terrain YYMV.

Re: Tire Help

I bought Pirelli XCMH which are DOT stamped in size 140/80 with matching front stock size but never put them on. Traded with my riding buddy and he put them on his 500 EXC and likes them. Assuming you meant DOT. Their knobs seem to be sort of reinforced and they are not chunking.

Aftermarket seat...

If anyone wants to trade an aftermarket seat for my 2011 FE570S, I'm willing to trade my stock seat.

A Renazco would be great ! Anything that's taller and a bit wider for longer days...

I can also just buy you aftermarket seat...!

Let me know if you have anything... I'll order a new one if nothing's available here...

I have an extra seat for the FE570S and could send it to Seat Concepts (local for me) for immediate install, have them ship it to you... very little wait time, great seat for a reasonable price and you'll be able to keep riding in the mean time....
I'm VERY happy with mine.
PM me with a fair offer if you're interested.


(batteries not included)

Look like fun trails. And thanks for the reminder that I need to order the fan kit for my berg.

Another question. Will the tube for the 140/80 work for the 130/90?
Thanks,
Don
