    Finn,

    The plan is to mount two fuel pumps external from the tank. May have a switch to choose between them, or more likely just the opportunity to switch quick disonnects to change from one to the other.

    May have it at the n00b rally - not sure yet, but definitely planning on a long training ride. See you in DV!

    Anyone have a source for a low rally pipe for the Bergs?

    What an awesome build :clap

    As one of probably many dreamers who wish they could do they same, I am wondering what the ballpark estimate cost would be for such a makeover, assuming you already had the bike?

    SSDave - I'll be in for over $6K in parts, probably approaching $7.5K. Probably about 150 hours of labor by the time it's done. It's definitely not cheap, but so very cool...

    I had one for my 2010 450 and used a Force bash plate.
    I can have one made up for you.
    send me a PM.

    Thanks Mark. I called and left a msg. Will probably have my bike builder (Les) give you a call.

    See you down in Mexicali...

    Hi Pinevalley

    thanks for the pics that is a huge space there, it certainly would be worth considering if i had the 2008exc mask and light but my mask/light is like this:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/frostyuk/8214462618/" title="IMG00175-20121124-1107 by frostyuk400, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8343/8214462618_7c9c0ba8b9.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="IMG00175-20121124-1107"></a>

    and uses different mountings to your headlight/mask

    another pic

    many thanks once again

    It's a Berg item, came stock on the US 570S Bergs that came street legal from the factory I think?

    I bet the intake rocker locked up on the shaft. This has been an issue on a few bikes.
    Tell him you will give him 1500 and bet you can fix the top end for 1000 or less.
    New rockers, shafts, valves, and machine work[/QUOTE]

    update - I bought that bike, and as expected, there are more problems then meets the eye, when bike owner is a complete monkey... I had that "dont do it" feeling, but it was so cheap...
    head was completely mangled, beyond repair..hole in piston let a bunch of metal onto the bottom end, so I split the cases, replaced the mains, etc
    new head and cylinder form ebay, motor is going back together
    Also of course half the bolts were stripped, including oil drain
    replacing most bearings, wheels, swing arm, steering stem
    no fluid in suspension, so the pogo sticks are off to factory connection
    estimate 5-6 k and a couple months of work.. oh well at least I know everything will be fresh

    talked to Les!!
    I am taking my Berg over to have the Low head pipe fitted.
    I may have to have him send the rear can to me to finish it off.

    My bike is at the shop today to get remapped (FE390). Apparently, it had the euro map on it and they are putting on the 390 competition map. Anyone know what the differences are? Is the 390 competition map the recommended map over the euro map?

    Thanks. I just hope the 390 competition map is not the stock map. I wasn't sure if the euro map or the 390 comp map was preferred. I asked him about the fx450 comp map based on comments in this thread and he said he selected the 390 comp map. That's not the stock map, right?
