    Anyone have trouble with a tight feeling, surging throttle on the road?

    When riding on faster roads it feels like my throttle is tight and harder to turn. It also feels like very little input is needed so the throttle is very on and off. This combination makes my right wrist hurt and hand cramp up fairly quickly on the road. Makes riding it on the road kinda annoying. Seems like I am either accelerating or decelerating. This is my first street legal bike so maybe this is something I just have to get used to? Maybe a different throttle tube cam thing? Too much engine braking because of too much exhaust back pressure? Anything else I can do? The way it feels now I can't see how any of you do 100 miles on the road with this bike much less the several hundred miles some of you are reporting. I not really seem to notice it offroad since I am off and on the throttle.

    In case it matters I am still on the stock six days tires, wheels have been balanced. Modified end cap, stock exhaust. 14/48 gearing.

    Check the cables for the correct amount of play, there should be a little bit of play at the throttle. I fitted a #1 cam on to my throttle to give it quicker and more instant response, but that is on a 390.

    For a 450 and 570 I would be trying a #3 or #4 cam on the throttle to smooth things out a bit.

    The fan connector is generally folded back and sitting right underneath the frame, a few inches behind the radiators. I had to take the tank off to find it.

    Some questions here, as im looking (maybe) to buy a used 450FE

    Found 2 in local craiglist, at about half price than new

    Model 2009, 4500km, 5200 CHF
    or
    Model 2011, 4800km, 6500 CHF

    Both seems quite clean and have almost same mileage.

    Witch one would you pick, considering year and price ?
    Does a 2011 model worth the difference ?

    Tanks for your comments

    Thank you to you both !

    That's seems wise advice, so i'll contact the 2011 seller to give an eye on it (and try to drop the price)

    Looking for a cush hub. The RAD site is not clear if there is one available for our bikes. FE 570.
    Any info will be appreciated
    Thanks

    Same hub as the newer KTM 450/525/530's. Just get one for one of them. Also a LC4 wheels from 640 fits with a spacer. It has a Cush hub already in it. That is the route I am going. Stocks wheel with d606 tire and 48 tooth sprocket and lc4 wheel with a k60 and 45 tooth sprocket. That way I have a street legal dirt focused wheel and tire and then a true dual sport wheel set up. If you can find a used lc4 wheel then you can probably buy it, a tire, and a new sprocket for the cost of that rad hub!

    As RTF says, they are the same as KTM hubs. Woody's Wheel Works just installed a RAD cush hub with heavy duty SS superlaced spokes on to my OEM blue rim for my FE390. I went with the 'silver/natural' RAD hub because it is a milled hub compared to the cast KTM hub, and the milled matches the front Husaberg silver milled hub and fashion queen made me do it. :lol3
    I have enough blue bling on the bike so kept the hubs silver.

    Shipped back to me today. I'll take pix when I get it.

    Woody's charges $100 more for the RAD cush hub compared to if they lace on a cast KTM cush hub from the 640's.

    Do you mine giving the price for that? Do they give you credit for keeping your factory hub?

    I had Woody's build me one using the silver Rad hub and super lacing onto a silver Excel rim last year for my 390. Cost including freight to Oz was $890aud.

    Excellent work by Woody's.

    Sure, per Zach at Woody's

    Build breakdown:

    Rear Rad cuh hub with sprocket carrier $549
    Stainless steel spokes/nipples $135
    Superlace/true $111

    -$50 for the OEM hub if still good.

    If adding a new Excel rim, you would have to get a quote from Woody's. I kept my blue DirtStar rim because it's been a very good rim for even brutal rocks and Woody's doesn't have a standard blue offering. Gotta keep my blue bling! :thumb

    Hurry up with the photo.....already! You should have paid for Overnight shipping. It would have been the least expensive part of the project. Geeez....

    A little help from the experts in here is needed.... I've been getting some coolant leakage out of this hole.... what does that mean and how can I stop it?

    Thanks!
