    I have had good luck with the adhesive backed heat barrier I used for the areas nearest to the exhaust. It is still there after a couple years. You are likely correct about the attempts at managing the exhaust heat given it’s routing but we have to try, right?

    I have never had any issues with wrap causing corrosion and have had it off to make adjustments a couple times now. Could just be the climate here as it is relatively dry most of the year.

    OK guys, I've rebooted by 2009 570 restoration project. It's only been like 3 years. Can someone send me some photos of the wiring rats nest around the battery? I think once I can get that sorted I can get the bike started, then it should be pretty easy from there. I may never take the subframe off again..lol. I finally got it titled and tagged also.

    email = katoomzoom58@yahoo.com

    jdubb75 sent me some photos before but I lost them.

    Thanks

    I regret selling mine. What’s the price for the whole thing?

    I never have forgotten about this bike. It was the "ace up my sleeve" for when the time was right. Unfortunately, the time just hasn't been right. It's nice to see it getting some love. Here are a few pics that may help... I took pictures of just about everything as I was going through my bike. If you need any more I'll be happy to see what I've got.

    I bought it used. It was dirty. It's a sound machine, no mechanical issues. I used to enjoy buying a bike, going all through it and flipping it, just as a hobby, I was lucky to break even. I don't enjoy it so much anymore. This one has taken way too long. My wife has health issues and that takes a lot of time. I get a lot on interruptions.

    I bought it off a racer in Central IL. He never did title it, he didn't want to pay the sales tax. He bought it in AL. He used it as a trail bike, race bike, enduro rider. He didn't dual sport it. Typical farm-boy, they take good care of their stuff but cosmetics is not a high priority. I had to get title for it. So it has an IL street title and tag.

    Fist photo is when I bought it. Second is when hand washing it, third is right before I tore it apart.

    I got a few tricks I use to get them good and clean. But to do it right you have to dissemble one. It's not normally a big deal. This project just stalled out.

    If I did it more often I'd like a vapor blaster, that's some cool technology.

    Here's a KTM 300 I flipped. It had 50 hours on it. It was owned by a real short guy who used it as a trials bike. Not hard enduro, but trials. It was a sound bike, just a little beat up from slow speed drops. This one turned out pretty nice. It sold really quick.

    There are deals out there if you keep your eyes open. The Berg wasn't selling well do to not title. This KTM was cosmetically beat up and the owner still had a lien on it. I got them both at good prices, but I still probably just break even after I go through one.

    I regret selling that 300. It was fun project.

    The photos don't really shoe the transformation. These bikes are clean after I'm done. There's not a single surface that doesn't get touched.

    Thanks jdubb. That wring is like a sleeping bag or tent, real pain to get it back in that tiny space. Especially after three years have gone by.

    No problem. I wish it would've been in the cards for me to pick up and tinker with. I love a good (clean) project and I quite enjoy turning wrenches on the Berg. It would be fun to put back together.

    Of course my motivation kicked in right as the 90 degree heat kicked in.
