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.

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

Done and done, glad to help!


I'm going back in to SC in person, they are swapping out my foam for the harder stuff, I'm running a low seat and it seems my butt is hitting the pan. It's not too bad, but on those days I'm spending far too much time sitting instead of standing it should be more comfortable.
Got to love Seat Concepts customer service! Great guys.

My Fan Kit is ordered from my local shop, I'll be putting it in this week and heading back to that trail on my quest for GLORY better prepared!

Question for you fellow berg owners - I read about some people installing a lower temp fan switch off a BMW 325i that "comes on at 203F instead of 223F so the fan runs a lot more", is that a good idea? Seems like cooler is good.

How about just putting a manual switch in and forgetting about the temp switch? What brand switch do you recommend?
Was thinking I should put some kind of bypass switch in anyways to have control over my bikes power consumption when needed. WIth a 55w HID light, heated grips, etc I'd like to have control to prioritize what's needed in various climates/rides if needed.
Also while talking about power, does anyone know how much power the fan uses?

Thoughts?

I've never had any problems running a slightly larger tube in my bikes, usually you can go up or down one size with tires and tubes with no issues.
Usually.

Hi Lost,

Definitely do the BMW fan switch. I find that it is perfect - blunts the temp before it gets up there like the stock switch allows. I also have a "manual override" fan switch but I rarely use it, - only if I am in a gnarly section that is known to go on and on - will somtimes engage the fan at the outset. It is a bit of overkill though, honestly. In my opinion, the 95/90C switch is perfect, as it engages well before the engine temps are getting up into edge of boiling the water zone.

The 'Bergs stator is a stout one, putting out 211 watts. I would not worry to much about power draw even with your 55W light. Load it up and go to town. Heat the grips, run the fan, throw a party

OK, thanks for the reply! Party time!


I see there's different switches, I read the 1984 BMW 3 series switch is the one to use. Apparently there's a few different one's available with different temps. 82C, 89, 99, etc.

Which one should I get? Are there found at regular auto parts stores or should I order online?


Thanks!

The one I am running is from NAPA, part number ATM 1435033. It is rated 95/90C. It is completely plug and play, the stock spade clips fit right on. You can unscrew the old one and pop in the new one and lose maybe a thimbleful of coolant if you are good
