The rear looks like an S12.
They are the stock Bridgestone's, we were both going to swap out the stockers for the Pirelli XCMH/MT43 combo but got lazy before we left for CO. I still have them sitting in the garage
As for the S12, I run it on my XC-W and will most likely put one on my Berg also. At least until we leave for CO again this coming July.
Picking up a FE390 today so will check in here as well as over at Unofficial Husaberg forums. Any other sites you can recommend?
Congrats....this site and that one should cover it.......post some pics of the 390....I think I need one to go with the 570....
www.KTMTalk.com has a pretty informative Husaberg section.
Here is a photo of my new toy from Oz. ( I have now figured out why they put the motor at 70 deg. and that would be when you are wheelstanding, the motor would be the right way up, and as this thing is reasonably powerful, it don't take much effort to put the motor the right way up) - If that makes any sense.
About time I stop being a lurker here and chime in. Picked up My FE390 about a month ago and every time I ride it I am amazed at how easy and fast I can ride the tight stuff. I am riding with Michelin spikes now so I dont know if I should try and dial in the suspension or just wait wait until April when the snow is gone, confused because I can ride soo much faster in the tight stuff than on my other woods bike
I wish I had my suspension resprung/revalved much earlier, but then I am well over the weight limit for the stock setup. It made a big difference in how well the bike handles and how much less work it is to ride now.
Will need mine resprung in the new year also.
Any one using the Hyde bashplate on their bikes?
does anyone have the sizes and types of tools required to do basic work on the bike when out in the bush.
Will be making up a 2nd tool roll with Berg specific tools and keeping the other roll XCH specific.
The Good: First off, my wife is really cool! Second, I picked up my new FE570 Dual Sport from Genuine Dirt Racer Products! (shameless plug )
The Bad: Had to sell my tricked out DRZ and my GasGas 280 Pro......
The Ugly: Since trail riding and racing my FE450 for the last two seasons, I am hooked on the 70 Degree 4 stroke!
Sorry for the crappy cell phone photo.
Very nice Berg TL. Now all ya need is the 390.
See ya tomorrow around 0930.
Completed the first ride on mine today and have to give the little 390 a for having such supple suspension and great handling. Point and shoot direction changes, never missed a beat.
Fitted the Safari tank to my FE450 between Xmas and New Years. Not quite straight forward, but that was more due to the fact I am running B&B Offroad radiator guards and case saver. Had to file some off the bottom of the louvres on the radiator guards and I added another layer of fuel hose as added protection when I ran the fuel line around the outside of the case saver.
Will be going for a big ride on Monday to try out the new rig. Will get back to you to let you know how it all works out.
sweet, keep us posted. i'm gonna have to figure something out about extra fuel but for the price i may just go with the little Giant Loop Moji.
it seem like it would make more sense, and be more cost effective than an actual tank and it will hold 3 litres or fuel.
Rode a friends 570 on the ice Saturday and realized why I sold mine.... way to cramped and small for me. Do you guys really make them comfortable if you're tall with bar risers, dropped pegs and a tall seat? I don't see it happening
Here is Nate riding the hell out of his 570...
I was faster on my SE I think
Is it just not a bike for a big guy? I was ready to buy another one but am having second thoughts.
What's everybody using for luggage?
Is the Coyote the rear bag of choice? Any options for saddlebags?
Scratch that...would never think of puttin saddlebags with frames on this sweet bike.
Tryin to find a way not to take this bike on a multi-day dual sport adventure is gettin tough...
Cranky, Running a Motorsportz SD on mine. Ergos work well for me with a tall seat, but you've got another few inches on me. I think you could make it work with all the above plus lowered pegs.
I'm also wider and I was all over the bike, it felt like a mini bike I did two laps and gave it back....
For the record, I didn't mean to make it sound like I was faster than Nate, he was much faster on his 570 than I was on the SE.
