I just appreciate the explanation. I'm new to these and fuel injected bikes.

The pull out "choke" knob can also be rotated to adjust idle speed. I had my bike for over a year before I figured that out

Evidently it can be done, but in at least one case, putting the filter there caused an issue.

Do you have a picture? I'd like to retain the quick disconnect.

Guys - You need to place the filter in-between tank and the quick disconnect by trimming the fuel hose so that it sits in nicely without even getting anywhere close to the cylinder. I did this both on my FE390 ( that I sold to another inmate here) and also to my current FE570. I tried to take pics today but you cannot see anything as it is dark plus I have the safari front tank & the sub frame tank so I have a few extra fuel hoses which makes it hard to see. I cannot see how one can even place the filter ahead of the quick disconnect between itself and the fuel injector. This definitely would cause issues with kinking as the fuel hose has a curve going in to the fuel injector besides it will for sure touch the cylinder head. With my set up it is no where close. Plus the quick disconnect is right ahead infront on the left side which makes it so easy to disconnect if I have to pop the tank out.

Replacement Air filters

I am looking to get a couple of spare air filters and I can only find 1 Twin Air filter on e-bay but there are several from HiFlow. I have never used HiFlow before and was wondering whether anyone here have used and their recommendation on it.

What about a DT1. These are good filters.

The range I am not sure. But I can fill up 5 gallons with the combination. I will be in Death Valley, starting tomorrow. So I will check the range. I know I can go 200 miles for sure on dirt roads, but on dunes it might be a different story. If you are thinking about the sub frame tank, please get it asap as they stopped making them officially as of the end of Feb. You might still get some from Cyclebuy.com but those are the last batch. If you have problems fitting all 3 together send me a PM and I will give you some tips. I had a lot of problems before I finally sorted them out. But once sorted I am very happy with the set-up. The good thing about getting the sub frame tank is the aluminum fuel pump housing which comes with the kit that makes a huge difference if you want to add the safari tank.

Bugger looks like they sold out. Might just have to go with the safari tank. Thank

Hi
A used scotts steering damper has come up for sale in my area for a good price. It says on the ad that it suits KTM EXC 200-525 2000-07 and SX 2000 - 06, anyone know if this will fit a 09 fe570?

Cheers
Matt

I called Scott's on this, b/c I have a Husaberg stabilizer mount posted up here f/s and I wanted to know whether it would also interchange w/ KTM.

According to Scott's,
The top mount and the stabilizer itself will work for both ktm & husaberg FE slanted motors, but the post mount for the slanted motor Husaberg is specific, and will not interchange w/ KTM.
