I geared mine up quite a bit for Sandblast a couple of years ago...the year I landed on my face It pulled the taller gearing pretty well and had a top speed somewhere over 100mph...though I didnt get a run long enough on the 450 to pull it. I need to drop her back down this spring.

Bit concerned here. Doing some inspection on my rekluse exp. 2 of the xrings, put in to reduce chatter are AWOL. The other 4 weren't in their place either. Not sure what went wrong. Clutch seemed to work great and never made a bad noise but the rubber washers all came out of their place. Now I need to find the other 2 in the engine

2 of them are on the loose. 4 were sitting inside the clutch basket. I'm not very happy about this. The 4 I have are in good condition. I'm not sure how they came out of position at all

damn, that sucks. i knew i should've left those goofy things out.

maybe you'll get lucky and they're stuck to the sump screen?

did the bike start having clutch squeal? why did you pull it apart?

Husaberg 70 Degree Owners Thread!

[QUOTE=dave186;23112883]Wow, 14/42! Im running 13/50, seems to be a good compromise. I have had it to 92mph on gravel, fast enough for me. My 09 came with 13/52 and first gear felt way too low. I tried 14/48, way too tall since I ride a lot of single track. Dropped to 13/48 and ran that for quite a while but found I never used the top gears. The jump from 5th to 6th is too big for serious racing, its more like an overdrive for cruising. Id like to have a hybrid trans with the close ratio 4 5 6.

I decided to see how my clutch plates were holding up. Time and mileage got me thinking that it may be time to check on things. The clutch has never squealed on me. Even in tight forest single track. Love the rekluse but this could be a headache

When installing the X-rings did you soak them in oil and install them wet? I find the only way to install those is completely coated in oil and the oil will help cause a suction grip once squished into place. The X-Rings are not a necessary component to the clutch performance, only to help prevent clutch chatter and mostly the noise at that. I would pull your orifice screen and try to look around in there but chances are the 2 X-rings floating around are going to cause absolutely no harm since oil from the clutch chamber is screened before moving onto other areas of the engine.

i've ridden alot of miles on dirt, and i thought it couldn't get much better at my age... well, i gotta say that all the hype about the Rekluse is right on the money. it is pretty freaking great.

only put about 30mi on it this weekend, all dez but wow what a neat gadget! the Berg really works well with the clutch, must be the FI and smooth power curve. did some goat trails, washes, sand and fast whoop sections, had no issues on steep descents, no flame outs, no stalls. i'm sold! took a little getting used to, i'm still shifting with the clutch by habit and learning to be a little quicker on pulling the front up in the whoops with the Rekluse, but those are minor.

i think i'll crack 'er open and remove those x-ring dealies and re-adjust my end gap and enjoy.

Trailtech X2 halogen kit on a FE570S ( street version)

Just bought this kit and it arrived today. Found out that it came with its own wiring harness and a switch ( off/low/high). So how does I get the turn signals and the horn to work ? Does it mean I need to have both the stock switch and the one that came with the X2 ? If anyone has installed this on a street version FE570, please suggest on what I need to do ?

Certainly , I had them made by RidePG.com. Be very specific about what you want / where on the bike.

Get rid of the turn signals and horn and go ride in the dirt! :lol

The X2 I got came as a plug and play. It uses the OEM switch. I think the kit is for a bike without lights to begin with.
