Lost, you can buy a Blue 500, it's called a 2013 "Husaberg" FE501, well, OK, it's really just a Blue KTM.

If you can find one! The import numbers of the 501 are a quarter of the 570's as well all know the market was killed by the left over 70 degree bikes for a long time.

EXC500 vs FE570

Well, this is the kind of dilemma people dream about, right ? NO bad choices.

The FE offers less vibration, a bit more weight, a VERY high air intake (for the Siberian adventurer . . . like me), a PIA fuel capacity issue, CLEAR bulletproof valve train and . . . didn't Neduro turn his 500 back in and return to the previous 530 ?

You can't go wrong. Just depends on requirements.

I'm selling my 530 and bought a 570.

And I LOVE the 530.

I very much love my 09 FE450. The long range fuel tank options are expensive and a little problematic to install properly. If the 70 degree guys can start supplying the subframe tanks again the bike will be well setup for normal dual sport riding with plenty of range. You only need the full safari setup for long range off road events/touring/rally which most people do not use the bike for.

I think my previous post was based largely on my frustration with the fuel issue. As I get ready to move out to CO I have purchased the Safari front tank, but I still may need to carry another gallon on occasion.

I have ridden a 500 and I didnt notice any increased vibration, but I was riding fairly slow on trails, not on the highway.

I know my buddy who has one constantly has issues with hot restarts... so much so I think he may get rid of it.

I do love the rock solid valve train, and the proven ability to 20k miles and 2500 betwee oil changes.

Bottom line, if someone offered me a straight up trade for a 500 today... I wouldnt take it... like I said schizophrenic

Checking out the hidden compartment today for tool stash and found this little guy.



Guessing this shouldn't be on a "dealer desmogged" bike?

To save the trouble of searching what does this thing do? How do you get rid of it? And does it hinder performance?

Thanks guys!

Looks like the business end of it has had the hoses removed. When the dealer desmogged my KTM, they ended up leaving a similar looking solenoid valve-looking thing electrically connected, but with hoses removed. They said some of the bikes seemed not to like not having it plugged in, and for the modest weight penalty they just left it on. I haven't bothered to remove it.

Ok, thanks. Wasn't sure if it made a difference or not.

Pretty sure mine is sitting in a bag in a box in the garage.

Well mine is going bye be just in case. Gotta remove it so I can stuff some tools in there anyway. I will make sure to tape up the fitting nice and tight.

Got Ned's DoubleTake mirror installed yesterday and it is a huge improvement for me over stock and the HDB set I had.

Hopefully get the turn signals working soon. Need to connect the hand warmer wiring. Tank bag from flea market bought. New boots, AFX dual sport helmet, and d606 rear on the way! Getting excited about some warmer weather and riding!
