Thanks for the link, Cyborg.
These guards look tuff. Looks like they will stop frontal impacts also.

Cry 272 pages

ok not that i am too good to go over 272 pages of wisdom on bergs but...I am thinking if switching from orange to blue. I am in the process of negotiating a deal for a 2009 570FE. It was a full FMF exhaust, ported and polished, mapped and the switch. It has just under 3000km or 1875 miles for you others. Has been trail ridden so some marks etc... but is there anything I should be looking for or listening too?
Any good advice will be greatly appreciated with the switch to the orange blue side .
thanks

It's a basic ktm with some nice changes. Maybe change the oil and look carefully in the screens for material? The owner shouldn't mind, and maybe gets a free oil change if you don't buy. Make sure rads are straight, and rear swinger is free of play. That is pretty low miles for one of these.
I think some said the 09s don't have a low fuel light, and the tank doesn't have the recess for adding the sensor (double check me tho).

Known issues, problems, commons mods Husaberg FE390 FE450 FE570 70 degrees
if you do buy it, i compiled this for anyone buying a 70 degree berg. won't have every bit of wisdom from 272 pages but covers the major points. if it is missing anything inmates are adding to the list. i'd ask him if he's already replaced the fuel pump with an aftermarket one or stock 2012 one. welcome to the blue side....

StepOnIt, thinking of leaving the 690 Orange group and going lighter? Just have one of each!

The 570 is a great bike and feels very light on the trail for a 570, not to mention probably about 30lbs lighter.

I would like to have two bikes but my bank account has a different opinion.
If it was to have two bikes I would keep the 690 for trips and get a 390 for woods weapon. I love my 690 but it is time for a new bike and the 690's are too pricey, even used. Just came across a sweet deal on the 570 and could not pass it up. Time to sell the 690

I would be VERY surprised if you didnt think the 570 was great. I have several other bikes...that I think that I should sell now since the Berg is by far the most fun to ride. GL

some of you will have seen the pics of worn countershaft splines on bergs with a fair bit of mileage under their belts. had me concerned as i've been adventure riding the 570 a fair bit and could see some wear of the splines starting.

a mate welded up a custom washer that (so far) has been stopping the front sprocket from moving on the shaft at all, which should prevent any wear of the splines hopefully. did a bit of a write up here. done three rides now with no movement so seems to be working. might be worth considering if you are running up a fair few miles on the berg?

That sprocket is showing a lot of side wear Barry!

Is it aligned correctly?

Is it the oem front sprocket or an aftermarket one?

I have only used oem sprockets and washer and no sign of any wear on my 390's shaft spline.

For general touring ride apps,whats a general oil change interval for the 570?,would 1500/2000kms be ok running good quality oil.Can/could i expect any inj/fuel system problems with a 2012 model.

I run 1500 to 2000 klms between oil changes using high quality oil in my 390.

It really depends on how you treat the motor. I probably rev the 390 a bit higher more often than a 570 would be.

I use the Motul or Motorex the same as the factory.

Rides are varied but not too much real hard stuff any more. Mostly Mt Mee, Jimna and Bellthorpe areas.
