It sure was as you know, since you rode it too just before me. Only difference is I rode over a large "roller" rock during the bumpy climb. Sometimes the trail gets you.

Edit: the spacers worked perfect. They're 3/16" - 1/4". I put them behind the pin / air filter arm assembly and it was just enough to stop the seat from coming off up front. I used spacers I found in this over priced tray of nuts and bolts.

Well I was very disappointed today. I attempted to install the rear Safari Tank on my 2011 570 and it doesn't fit. It doesn't fit over the subframe on the left side where the emissions canister used to be. Can someone enlighten me on this issue? Will I have to change out the subframe? There doesn't seem to be anything mentioned on Safari's website and after many searches on the forum I have found no mention here either. HELP!!
Regards....justjeff

17" to 21" ?

Is there a way to change front wheel size in the speedometer display?

On other Husaberg/KTM's, I am used to see 2205 in the display as an indication that the front wheel is a 21"
But now I am working on a 570FE -09 that indicates 1700-1800-something (can not remeber now) as for a Supermoto 17" front wheel.
In 2009 the FS model didn't exist, so I'm guessing that somehow , the wheelsize in the dispaly has been changed.

Any ideas?

Did you cut the side cover just under the subframe?

You need to trim the plastic on the fender

Jeff,

I assume you have the cut out for the smog equipment on you 2011, correct? I had to trim my sub frame (quite a bit) to get the tank to fit. The folks that have the subframe without the smog cutout or the sub-frame tank require only the fender to be trimmed. If you are interested I can see if I can dig up some photos.

should be fairly easy to find a non-smog subframe, i'm sure someone would sell you one.

This is how it's done:

Disconnect the speedo from the loom 3 pin connector (black, red & brown?) or diconnect bike battery.

It does work on all 03 to 08 exc models and LC4 motors with EXC style display, but you have to start with the display showing running hours, not miles, then press and hold the MODE button till display blinks, cycle through with the MODE button, then when WS blinks you can adjust up/down with + and - buttons, then press MODE again, then press and hold MODE button

I leave my connector undone all the time for quick changes from SM to dirt wheel size. The light does not work, thats all

hate to say it, but i think it's time to start prepping the FE570 to sell it.

a few of us have got into trials lately so have been cross training on the dirt bikes. i had a play on a mate's 300EXC yesterday and it's so much easier to do the trials riding techniques on.

pivot turns are a struggle on the berg, and rear wheel hops are almost impossible but it was a piece of cake on the two stroke.

Thanks guys for the replies! I tried it with the fender completely off and the fit issue is definitely the smog subframe. I find it odd there is no mention of this on Safari's website. I thought maybe I got the wrong tank.

Pinevalley,
I was reluctant to start cutting the subframe in case it would compromise the strength. Have you had any issues since you doctored yours? If you could find any pics it would be very appreciated! I don't mind cutting he subframe if it remains strong.
Best Regards to all....justjeff

Great pic....yeah not so easy to muscle the big Swede girl around. I took off my Safari frt tank & swapped out the stock muffler for a SXF one . 2 distinct advantages ,1st is noticeably less engine heat, fan only came on when stopped for a bit. You can touch the can even when the engine is running, not even hot. The weight difference is only 2.5 -3 lbs but feels like a ton . Removing weight up high is always a good thing. Also the engine of course feels much snappier , & does not pop on decal so the EFI is able to deal with the freer flowing exhaust. Win/Win. only drawback ,of course is more noise.

I have not noticed any issues with integrity post trimming. However, if you can find one used like vintage suggested I would go that route. I'll send you a PM with photos if I can find them.
