    Nice! It looks like you stretched the stock seat cover over the Seat Concepts foam??? I flirted with that idea, but it didn't look like my stock seat cover had enough real estate to cover it nicely.

    Decided to go this route to mount my Mosko Moto Reckless 40. I have an aluminum backing plate on the under side of the fender as well. Actually stiffens up the fender assembly overall, so I just leave it in place.

    It's the Seat Concepts "low seat" foam with the OEM seat cover. I first saw @Lost Roadie do this with his seat so borrowed his idea. If I recall correctly, Seat Concepts indicated there was not enough material to re-use the stock seat cover over the standard height Seat Concepts foam, so your thoughts were correct.

    And thanks. I was happy I could still use the OEM Berg seat cover.

    Ahh...that makes sense. I've got the standard foam. I thought about ordering a new seat cover to stay with the oem look, but I saw a post somewhere that the seat covers were solid blue now like they did a running change on the part number. I haven't really looking into it beyond that.

    Spring rates.....
    right now, my stock springs work fine for my weight @ 150lbs. (rates = 7.2 kg/rr & .44 kg/fr)
    when i add some camp gear & more stuff to live off the bike, it's 45 lbs more

    me+riding gear (175lbs) +duffel+saddlebags (45)= 220 lbs

    what spring rates are u guys using at ~ 220 lbs TOTAL?

    look in the manual specs, they are accurate. Not right off the top of my head, but my spring is 8.2?, the one listed for that weight range.

    here's the chart on Slavens Racing.. Looks like 8.0 Kg/mm. Maybe that's what mine is, since it's on the way back from Factory Connection I can't look right now.

    Quit screwing around guessing. Pull your forks and rear shock and take them to 812 Suspension. He is located in Round Rock.
    This guy does exceptional work.
    PM if you want contact info.

    Well shit, here's a good one to check on. I didn't notice this 10 days ago when I took the bike apart but today when I was putting the suspension back on I was cleaning the threads on the axle and felt the axle/block moving in my hand a little. Yup, big ol crack all the way through (can see on inside too). Luckily parts aren't much, so ordered new axle, right side block and new nut from RMATVMC.

    Have to say after at least 350 hours these inner and outer fork bushings look amazing.

    it's just firmer springs i want , not a revalve.
    i can change springs quicker than i can get in the car to make the drive up to his garage.

    my white spring has a hand written PDS 8 on it. I think it's stamped "WP 81-99/260"

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking at buying a one owner 2010 570FE with some tasteful upgrades such as a sub frame tank, Scotts Steering Damper, Rekluse clutch and many of the normal issues already resolved. It is plated however does not have turn signals or the switch gear for them. If I wanted to add these, are there existing pigtails for the lights and switch or would it be quite a bit more involved to add this? I know I've seen some 570's with them. Thank you.

    I believe my 450 has the siccass dual sport kit seems good quality make sure you have front brake light switch at a stop light that is what you usually use on the road.

    Unless the previous owner has modified the wiring all of the switches, lights, fan & horn are plug and play into the factory wiring harness. Here's what I used for my 2011 390 and it will work for your 570...you can reference this for part numbers if you want, but I'm sure pricing has changed. You can also search this thread for my posts if you like. I have documented almost every mod since it was factory fresh with pictures and that includes the locations of all of the hiding connectors.

    The valving must be changed to match the springs.
