Couple things,

1st - frosty what size Kriega bag is that in your pics?

2nd, to carry on with the tire talk, has anyone ever tried Dyna beads in their tires? I know that my Dad runs them in his Harley tires, and I have buddies that have run them in their 4x4's. Think they would work great for dual sporting purposes.

.
thats a us10, fully packed, i've kept it as far forward as seems sensible to me to as teh subframe gives more support in that area, i may have to unclip it to get the seat off depending on whats in the bag at the time but i felt that it was worth that minor inconvenience

having looked at all the other options and seeing as all my trail "luggage" is kriega it makes sense to and i can always go to the overlander-30s if i want to. i had thought about using the tank adaptor as others do but i think this is cleaner but unfortunately not cheaper

Will be interesting to see if they hold the luggage more securely than the reversed tank adapter, though mine doesn't move with a US-20 or US-40 combo on there.



You should put your pics up in the other Berg lite ADV thread.

Those little mounts are definitely not cheap!

But it is a nice solution...

prices

Since I dont see many of the 70 degree bikes for sale, what is the going rate for a FE570s? I saw a 2011 with 8hrs/350km on it in BC Canada. The guy was asking $9500. The bike had some goodies, but it seems really high?

Any info would be appreciated...\

Jason

Looks like my overheating issue is the thermostat, I'm going to make a bypass tomorrow and take it for a good thrashing to test it out. Anyone else remove their thermostat? I have a brand new set of Thermodydne radiators for a KTM 450 and it looks like they'll bolt right up to the 390 without much trouble. I'm starting to think I might give that a shot soon.

Secondary Air System

I've heard that some have taken off the Secondary Air System (SAS), and just blocked off the opening with a plug. What problem is this meant to solve? Does it make any difference to how the bike runs?

I did some measuring and it looks like a winner. I'm going to bypass the Thermostat housing tomorrow and beat it like a red headed step child on Sunday I'll bring the heat gun and see what kind of temps I'm getting.
