FE570 fuel consumption ?

What fuel consumption does anyone get from a 570 ?

I went out on Monday and only got 100km (60 miles) out of the tank on my 570 with the Akara carbon slip on

I would have thought it would get more than 12km/L ! I was not riding hard even.

Has anyone loaded a different EFI map or still the stock one they came with ?

that's not possible gazza sorry!

fuel injection is the answer to eveything, all your needs, it'll even make you a cup of tea! when you have fuel injection you can remap it and the metering of fuel will be so precise that it'll leave the ancient carburettor miles behind!

fact is, you should be able to get 4 hours out of a tank no problem so i suggest that you try filling it up next time.

if this is true, i've just been handed enough material to keep me in jokes until 2015.

where's daleO when you want a laugh hey!!!! where are all those cocky huckers now!

i tell ya what gazza , if you want 4 hours out of just 9 litres and you can afford the price of a conversion - i'll set you right mate howzat?

otherwise its bushtucker for you mat hey!!!

when i get the chance i'm going to pull up all hose old threads and PM the culprits PERSONALLY!

i can see it now, an '09 with a fuel tanker behind it? what a picture

good luck mate, learn to ride in hiking boots is prolly the best answer....

regards

If you had a fuel screw, I'd suggest turning it in to a half turn out. Did that to all three of my '05 'Bergs and can now get 50 mpg out of the 650 and 65 out of the 550's. Remember, they like to run lean, so maybe this is also true of the new ones and you can make or get some leaner maps to try. You need the Taffy equivalent of fuel injection as a Guru for these new bikes. Hopefully, you can do it with the factory tools rather than having to go to something like a Power Comander. Done this before and it can actually be a lot of fun.

Got the same consumption on my 450. But hey, it's all sand and mud here so no surprise.
Need the same liters as the rest of the bunch on their EXC530'sand 450's.

fuel consumption

I was hoping the fuel injection on the new Husaberg would get mileage equal to the older husaberg
Every one rides with a different throttle hand so it's hard to compare milage from the carb to the FI system
My favorite Husaberg of the four I have owed was my 2000 FE 501e Great bike
Riding trails and dirt roads not being aggressive with the throttle the 501 would get 50/55mpg with no problem. when I planned a ride this would be the milage I would count on, never had to walk home on 120 mile rides. I even got as high as 60mpg a few times. I had to replace the needle jet often because of wear every three to four months depending on miles rode. The Dellordo carb worked great for me on the 2000 501 the 2002 501 carb was not as good
In sand with the 2000 501 hard aggressive riding I would be out of gas at seventy to seventy-five miles, big difference from babying the throttle
You guys with the 570 model I would like to know if you ride it easy trying to get mileage what the bike will do. I know this is hard to do with the new Husaberg they like to be rode hard not babied
Have a great ride

It's not too flash on my 09 FE450 either..

I have run out at 94.1km & had to push it 2.7kms. I hope a new map comes out soon. I really need 110km range.

A reserve warning light would be handy

it seems like the rear subframe mod for the extra 4 L is going to be a necessity, not a nice option !!

with the same type of riding I would have gotten about 15-16km/L from my '08 650, not 12km/L of the 570

also the 570 power is nice and smooth.......................BUT I miss the V8 grunt of the 650

A demo 09 FE450 I rode last year before my bike turned up had a far better fuel range..

I got 69miles from 7.8litres out of the 570 on trail.
That doesnt seem bad reading some of the posts.
Yeah, an extra 2 litres tapped into subframe hollow with a reserve light would be great for 4 hour enduro races.

So far I have been getting about 32 mpg, not riding very hard but carrying speed none the less. Riding about the same on my 04 550 I got about 35 mpg.

I rode in a race this weekend, Desert MC National Hare & Hound, still breaking it in so no full throttle but about 75 or 80% max. The first loop was 42 miles, and the second was 37. Speed average for the entire distance was around 22mph. Filled the tank at the end of the 42 miles, and had about 3 liters left at the end of the 37 mile loop.

Seems to me as stated by NKW570 that the bike should be good for about 50 miles racing and 70 miles trail riding.

Yes Taffy, you are/were right, the fuel injection uses more fuel contrary to what I thought should happen. But Mate, she runs pretty sweet!

Hopefully Aqualine will come out with some bigger tanks for the bike. But for now, if I need the extra fuel I'll put a Acerbis number plate tank on it and call it good.

We'll see how the mpg goes once it's got some more miles on it.
