I am in Southern Californis.
I did mine locally but regretted doing the head pipe. It does nothing to alleviate fuel boiling issues and only increase heat going into the silencer. I read afterwards to just do the mid pipe. The head pipe dissipates more heat out before it reaches the mid pipe if uncoated and keeps silencer temps down.

Does anyone know anyone who traded in a FE 570s in at a dealer in Vegas? Had a decent list of mods and about 2000 miles.

Just looking to see if it was someone local here.

Haha yea, i just got off the phone with him. Had a nice 30 min chat about it. Its clear those guys have no clue about the bike, but most sales people rarely do.

I kind of figured I'd find the owner pretty easily, just did not think I'd find him within minutes of posting that.

I tried to buy that bike last week from Carter.
They want almost $9000 OTD

Question Wiring mess...

Ok, so this is the mess that's usually hidden away behind the headlight mask...



It needs cleaning up. I have a switch setup to turn the headlights on/off (I turn them off if I'm trail riding) and I have an auxiliary LED light that is switched also. I plan on adding heated grips. I also have my GPS wired to switched power and I have a powerlet socket...

What easy to add (and small) connectors do you recommend (that are also weather/water proof)? I have a weatherpak connector in the bottom of the pic, but it's way big. I would like something smaller, that is easy wire in, but is resilient.

Suggestions?

Everything but the spare wheel set.
I have a few sets of wheels so I let the dealer keep them.

Anyone with any wiring suggestions? Bueller? Bueller?

Anyway - another question. Rear suspension. The time is approaching to have mine checked. Any recommendations for suspension servicing (out here on the West Coast preferably)? I'll get around to the front later, so if you have different suggestions I'd love to hear them.

I had my suspension done by Dale EO over on Husaberg.org. I am very happy with the results. I have heard others complain that he is sometimes slow, since this is just a side business for him, but it worked out well for me.
