2010 fe570 fuel line

Anyone have a source or know the details of the fuel line coming from the tank to the quick disconnect on a 2010 fe570? Just noticed mine has significant wear and I'm about to head out on a 1500 mile trip. It's got a KTM part number but in the husa catalog it's:

75007116060 FUEL HOSE WITH CLUTCH

00050153706 VARIABLE ONE-EAR CLAMP 15,3MM

I don't know what PSI it's rated for but I'm guessing upwards of 60?

Any chance anyone has found an autoparts store replacement? The places I've called that have KTM / Husaberg parts seem to be out of stock.

Thanks in advance.

Renzco Racing to the rescue!

(full disclosure) This is James Renazco's old bike which I purchased a few months ago.
Hey Michael, I have the Renazco seat that was on your (formerly James's 390) that you sent back to him. Now it (James's seat) is up in the Seattle area. Small moto world eh?

09 fe450

Hi Guys

have joined the club with a well used fe450 09 model (all i could afford) 145 hours and 2500 miles from a "sportsman" rider who never used it on the road. So i'm putting all the road bits (from the box which came with it) back on and have a couple of minor issues i was hoping you guys could advise on

i took off the rear light carrier to feed the wires from the license plate holder up into the battery area and found on refitting it that the ejot screws in the middle are just rotating in the plastic, is there anyway to get a firmer fitment? or is it a replacement tail unit? the other question is the same wires from the license plate holder i've routed under the black ladder frame through what looks like a cable hole, but i've found the wires are pinched between the ladder frame and the tail section, is that normal or have i routed them wrong? one final question .. where is the best place to mount the horn ?

Many thanks in advance
Ian

I thought the seat in your photos looked familiar .


Loved your LED headlight install. Looking forward to doing something similar before too long.

Helmet cam footage from the last couple of National Enduros on my 450 berg. On row 37 for both the TN and LA round, Jordan Ashburn, Jesse Groem, and a handful of other Pro's and A/AA riders are on the rows behind us. They are ripping.

How many clicks/hours have you racked up?

This bike's been going for a few years now, so maybe we can start tallying the FE's durability. Maybe we should also mention the type of riding you do as well.

My bike's still new, so it doesn't say much at all...but just to get it started:

420 kms
12 hours
80% logging road, 20% single-track.

2011 FE570s, the sumo version

883 miles, 21.1 hours.

Bought it new. Rode it around for a couple hours, changed oil. Rode it around some more then took it back to the dealer (MPC in Roseville) for a remap and an Akrapovic. Had them check the valves too, all ok.

Rumors of flawless fuel injection are well founded. Mine has never stalled, never flamed out, gets 50+ mpg and will pull the front end off the ground at go directly to jail speeds.

With the sticky Michelin Pilots it spends most of its time on bumpy back roads here in California with the occasional fire road thrown in for fun. Rode DV's Titus Canyon. Slowly. Got to do some sight seeing that trip.

I have the Wolfman saddle bag mount and three rolies along with his tank bag. Renazco seat on order.

50% pavement, the rest on trails/dirt roads.


Valves still in spec at 2500 miles

The bike has been running flawlessly so far, though it just started leaking oil near the front sprocket

Is your chain too tight? That will cause a CS sprocket leak usually.
