I just listed a 450 for sale in the FM
Just a heads up for everyone. Cyclebuy had three 2nd gen 70 degree sub frame tanks in stock this morning.
They now have two! :)
Just saw these come across the local Craigslist...
2010 FE450 ($6,000). The ad claims it's street legal (in all-caps no less, so it MUST be true!). I don't believe it. The 450 was never sold as a street legal CA bike, and no amount of lying to the DMV will make it different. The 2010+ FE570 and FS570 were the only California street legal 70 degree bikes (as I recall). There are stories floating around of people who got dirt bikes plated having their plates yanked back by the DMV.
2009 FE450 ($4250). Pretty close to stock, but does include a Scotts damper.
Good news for all 70° Berg owners - apparently CycleBuy has partnered up with Promoto Billet to finally produce a stronger billet aluminum kickstand to replace the carry stocker on our bikes!
Should be out in a month or so.
Well I'm now the happy owner of an 09 FE570, took it for a quick lap around the paddock and I'm impressed. Now here's the but.....
The headlight and taillight doesn't work (brake light works) and I have 2 spare wires behind the headlight that I'd like to know what they're for. Ok, 1 of the wires is yellow with a blue stripe and appears to have 12 volts on it when the bike is running, this wire runs back toward the rear of the bike. Wire has no plug on the end and looks like it was either cut or just pulled out of a connector.
The other wire is brown with a black stripe and runs to the rear of the plug that I presume is for the indicator switch block (currently don't have the indicator switch block as the previous owner removed the indicators, switch block and flasher relay).
Now for the headlight questions. On the switch block which wire does what? Pretty sure the green wire and blue wire are for the high and low beam and the white wire is for the park light. The yellow and black wire and yellow wire seem to have 12 volts. Is this correct so far? Which wire is meant to supply power for the headlight? Is one AC for the headlight and one DC for the horn? Is the red wire the horn and the brown wire earth/ground?
Any help would be great.
The bike is an Australian ADR bike as well.
Anyone running a rad cush drive hub?
If so, I need to know what bearing PN# is in the sprocket carrier side.
Does your bearing protrude about .0625" out of the carrier hub?
Thanks in advance.
I'm away from home or I'd look for you... I bet woody can tell you if you ask in his Ask Woody thread in Vendors.
"They do exist!"
Now I just have to find enough time off work to install it!
Got mine a couple weeks ago, and it is waiting impatiently to hop on the bike. Hopefully later this week.
Well the Husaberg decided it was tired of being ridden too slow and taught me a lesson this weekend.. could be a couple of months before I am back out there.
Shims... any chance the FE390 shares shims with the 950/990?
950 is a 10mm iirc.
Are there any shim kits out there like the Hot Cams kit that works for the 950/990?
edit: never mind. Found it. So... yes!
ouch. is that a temporary cast for a broken leg or support for a torn ligament. no fun either way! last weekend one of our guys did a collarbone and possibly a few ribs. very conscious of increasingly brittle bones as the gray hairs emerge.....
fractured tibia plateau.. but no displacement..so that is good.. very painful.. yeah im 46 and was riding like a teenager totally stupid.
Bummed to see that pic. Heal up quick and well bud.
Riding like a 46 yo teenager, so that means you needed about 33 years of riding talent headroom. How much riding talent headroom did you have, before you ran out?
I'm 46 as well, and I'd guess I have about -15.
Good find. Are these gonna work for the 570 too?
I believe ours use the 10.0mm shims/kits.
Sorry to hear about your injury, hope you heal up quick and recover fully.That looks nasty. Is the bench racing story good?
Yeah feel better soon. I almost flipped it backwards on a wheelie the other day...things like that can happen fast/easily.
