Can somebody measure and see if the FE570 swingarm is a little longer than the FE390? Maybe in the specs hmmm... Since the MT43 seems to fit on the 570's but not the 390's.

Those Maxxis look pretty good. May try those next.

You would think they would be the same.

There was room with the MT 43 but not for mud, picked up rocks or crap in the tyres or possible shape change of the tyre. I didn't try a longer chain though, just what was standard on the bike.

There is heaps of room with the Dualmaxx fitted.

Finn,

The guys and I all used the CV4 blankets, and we had no problems with them at all. They seemed to work great, even idling the bike at higher RPMs (to create enough electricity for winch and fan) with no air flow through the rads for longer periods it did not overheat or boil the fuel once.


Clif,

390/450/570 all use the same swingarm, in fact it's the same basic casting as all non-linkage 125-530 KTMs have been using since 2008 (only the inner width gets machined differently, the XC4 engines are wider than 2 strokes etc). One of my other bikes has a Berg 570 swingarm in an 08 505 XC-F frame with a 06 450 RFS engine and it bolted right in and is the right length, with the right rear shock pickup point... gotta love the KTM parts bin system!


I don't think there is anything special about the MT43 in the 390/450/570 application that would prevent it from fitting properly as long as you go with the right chain length and sprocket combination.

Lukas, did you have your header pipes ceramic coated?

Nope, didn't get around to it. Walter's and my headers were stock, Barton wrapped his with DEI tape. I am sure it can only be an improvement but so far it has not been necessary.

Thanks for the reply Lukas, I thought it was you but was obviously mistaken.

Got the 570 out for a solo ride for a few hours this morning west of Las Vegas before the heat got too bad.

Here's a few pics...













Love my Berg!

- optional map switch (i haven't found a need).
- pull the rear tail pipe screen (this will open it up enough so that it's better all around).
- optionally remove the smog gear (mine is still there) but everyone else seems to have done pulled theirs.
- plug the crankcase vent thingy (that stupid contraption will snap off, damhik). goes with the above item.
- ride the shit out of it. it is possibly the most fun bike ever.
Thanks for the tips...

When you state "REMOVE THE SMOG GEAR" does that mean all of it, including the junk behind the left side rear side panel?

Probably worded that incorrectly. 'Wouldn't' instead of couldn't as the clearances were too close and it is always muddy and clay where I ride.

Got a fan kit install question and trying to search for anything on this site is hopeless......always get error messages. I am not readily seeing the connectors for the fan or the sensor. Can anyone who has installed one point me in the right direction?

We at one point it was hiding in my hand. I had hold of the dumb thing and thought it was the wrong cable.
