    Cyborg, how much is the exp with the external adjustor? Really liking the Rekluse now that it can be adjusted externally to bump start. I have installed the exp on my crf450r but didn't adjust it right and burnt my clutch out in the first hour of riding. Need to get new plates and clutch basket but keep spending money on the Husaberg. The Honda may up for sale soon though. Took the Berg to Highland Park Resort here in Georgia yesterday. Rode awesome on the trails as expected but really surprised me on their new (tame) MX track. It was kinda cool to keep up with my buddies on their blinged out MX bikes with the headlight on and tag on the back. Jumped all of the smaller jumps without a problem. Tag needed to be unfolded though. Lol. Couple of turns on the compression and it soaked up me coming up short with ease. Starting to fall in love with this bike!

    RTF, I bought the Core EXP from Rekluse in 2011. Rekluse didn't have the Adjustable Slave Cylinder at that time.

    I bought the Adjustable Slave Cylinder from Slavens in 2013 and retrofitted to the existing Core EXP. Quite simple, just had to change out the center adjustment piece with a solid piece that comes in the kit.

    http://www.slavensracing.com/shop/adjustable-slave-cylinder-for-husaberg-by-rekluse note the Slavens picture is wrong, doesn't show the actual slave cyl in the kit.



    You can buy it all as one these days, for example:

    Bit spendy but IMHO worth it.

    No idea about price differences or if there are kits with and without. I just Googled it quickly to see what was currently offered.

    You can call Rekluse direct and ask:

    Yea, me too. I have pretty much the same setup and have been thinking about the rear brake setup.

    If you didn't have the smaller switch cluster, would you have been able to fit it in?

    With some shipping issues I just ended up with the exp 2 kit. It comes with the adjustable slave cylinder. The new clutch cover, new inner clutch, pressure plate the exp plate of course with 6 red and 6 blue springs and the red main springs. The clutch pull now is just a bit heavier than stock. Being able to adjust the clutch at the slave is great. It's a great set up. Really prefer it to my buddies z-start without clutch lever. Just have to email rekluse and they will send you a template to drill a hole in your stock chain guard to access the bolt on the slave

    It's a pretty tight fit to keep both levers but I managed it. Had to modify the switch cluster parts and break them apart and mount them to the Rekluse master cyl clamp and body.

    On the top left module:
    Light toggle: High/Low/Off
    Horn
    Kill switch

    Below Rekluse master cyl clamp:
    Blinkers

    Mounted to the mirror base/clutch lever perch is what looks like a KTM Kill or Start switch that I am using for a headlight "Alert" High flash and also for programming the Skene Designs dimmer for my Baja Designs Squadron headlight.

    On the far right, the usual KTM tripmeter switches.

    The OEM guard drill template came with my Rekluse adjustable slave cylinder kit, on the last page of the paper install instructions.

    :eek1 mercy sakes, Cyborg!

    Hey...add "gasoline" to your list of things you buy for that bike. :deal

    Just sayin.

    And, I'm starting to get worried about what you've got planned for us this year. :lol3

    Looks like a lot in the zoom-in photo, but the actual parts are small and the cluster is still smaller overall than a typical "Street" switch cluster and everything is quick at hand. It doesn't get in my way. Other side is start button and 3-map switch. I do dual-sport this bike a lot and need the goodies.


    And HF, I HAVE been riding it. Plans? What Plans? :augie

    I'm looking at buying an FE570 and I've found a new 2012 and a used 2011 with 50 hours pretty close to home. The used bike is only 60% of the price of a new one.

    Where the bikes are located is all big dunes and I would guess it's been flogged from birth and traded in for a 500exc.

    what to do? I'm no pro so I'm not sure I will notice the improvements in suspension unless they are pretty dramatic. Any problems with abused bikes?

    I think the only changes from 11-12 were a yellow frame and most likely the 12 doesn't have the 'bad' fuel pump.
    At 60% of price, it is hard to pass up if the bike runs well and doesn't look beat to heck. The 570s seem to run at least 200hrs before a top end service is needed.

    To answer your question, no, no issues that I've experienced with 15,000 miles or 400 hours on mine that wasn't operator error caused. @ 12,000 I replaced the rings since we were in there fixing the countershaft I wore out after not running a cush drive, and riding lots of pavement, but only because we were already there, not because it had to be replaced. Valves STILL in spec from the 300 mile service.
    There's folks with more miles than me that have not rebuilt a thing. Jimmy Lewis has more hours on his and it hasn't needed any major service. As long as the owner changed the oil now and then and kept a clean air filter I wouldn't be afraid to buy the bike for the right price.
    These aren't Orange bikes that need to get rebuilt often. :evil

    We'll talk about that when we go down to Baja next month, if you finish the race. :lol3
    You better hope you don't break down!



    Heading out tomorrow for some Lost moto-fishing-riding-camping alone time on my favorite bike, the crappies are hitting, the trout are hungry and the mountain single tracks are finally opening up!.. :clap

    I've just seen a brand new in-crate 2012, 70 degree FE390 at MPE Caloundra....must be last on planet!

    (no affiliation with MPE, bought my last bike from him, seems a good dealer)
