Yes I'm glad I had this opportunity to warn you. The FE570 is a home-wrecker, You will love this bike so much that you will constantly ramble on about it to the point that your wife will become jealous, not to mention that you will want to spend every waking moment riding her.

No real issues to speak of.
My only suggestion is to spring it and set the sag and suspension as per the owners manual before you ride it.

Hey duck, congrats on the 570. I'm leaving Husky's and moving to Berg's. Was heading towards the 450, but many I have spoken to recommend the 570. Might be something to do with weighing about 120kg's with all gear on. Love to hear anyone's thoughts on the main differences in riding characteristics between the two bikes. Initially thought the 570 might be a bit too big for tighter single trail stuff. Maybe not????

Looking forward to your ride reports.

Could you let us know where you live...single track in one area is not like single track in another...Moab single track is way different than the single track we ride here in Alberta. We'll be able to give you a much better answer with a little more info.

the 570 is a great bike, especially for bigger guys. Also, do you like to lug bikes or make the motor rev...

Hey Guys,
I've honestly haven't ridden the bike enough to give a balanced opinion, unfortunately winter has settled in here in Ontario.
What I can tell you from my initial experience with the bike, is that it has yet to have left me wanting. Whether I was in eastern single track (80% of what I ride),or on submerged corduroy, or on loose pack fire roads, the bike performed flawlessly.
In my opinion the 450/570 are identical machines, the only difference is power delivery. I would argue it is impossible to be unhappy with either of these machines, they are the pinnacle of off road motorcycle design, and we are truly living in the golden age of motorcycling.
The bottom line is, will you use / benefit from the extra power of the 570. I come from a road racing / motard back ground, so I find the 570 highly entertaining when the terrain opens up, and I do not feel it handicaps me in close quarters.
Here are a few of my observations to date with the 570; its an absolute rocket (throttle wheelies on command), the fuel injection is faultless, feels like a 250 once rolling (no BS), looks sooo much better than a KTM, best sounding stock exhaust I've ever heard, tail piece resembles Aprilia RSV4F (a good thing), and did I mention its an absolute rocket???!!!!
I just purchased the map switch for the bike, so I'm looking forward to a little experimentation in the spring, hopefully it will only improve what has already proven to be an extremely capable motorcycle and put the 450/570 debate to rest.

My 570 only has about 360kms on it so its hard to comment on any problems.

I did have an issue with mine that it would not electric start when hot, that battery was holding proper charge and was charging when running but it was actually the battery.

570 vs 450 - i'm not a particularly fast rider but i chose the 570.
The 450's are becoming to much like the previous year model motorcrosser.
As such they break traction far to easily because they don't don't put their power down very well, to much snap.

The 570 has a very smooth power deliivery although i haven't gone to the agressive setting on the mapping switch yet.

I was on an 04 KTM EXC and could not decide betwen the 2009 450 or 530 exc.
I have always heard the 530's are great at going fast and not so good at stopping, i think its actually that they are easy to ridfe over and above you ability and run off corners.

Thankfully while thinking about it i discovered the Berg and rode the 390 and the 570.
The 390 was too revvy for my liking, i prefered my older KTM.

I really had to think about the 570, eveything said it was to much bike for me, now that i have it, its the easiest bike to ride I have ever riden.
Due to the set up of the engine in the frame the balance is amazing, the power is very smooth and does not rip your arms off.

I've got one final thing to say.

If you don't want to buy any of the Bergs then don't test ride them because once you have you won't want to ride anything else.
The balance is so good it should be illegal.

Re: '09 FE570 Issues???

Thanks for all the advice and views on the 450 and 570. Picking up the 570 next week. Live in South Oz, so the single track is mostly dry, wooded type terrain, roots, rocks and plenty of 2/3 gear work. But still plenty of wide open spaces to soak up that smooth power delivery. Can't wait.

Re: '09 FE570 Issues???

The main issue I had was that the thermostat was rubbing on the radiator from the factory. Every bike at the dealership Ive looked at since then (including 2010's) has the issue as well. Solved it fairly easily with a bracket I made in the shop but its something to be aware of. There's also some who've had issues with the connector to the fuel pump being not fully snapped in. Mine had 2 or 3 links too many in the chain (not really an issue). Factory can is way stuffed up also.

I've rode the 450 and 570, and the only downside to the 570 is the increased fuel consumption. The extra power is no burden in the tight stuff thanks to the fantastic EFI, you just use as much as you need. Then toss the stuffed-up factory can for something a little more free flowing (loving the FMF Ti can) and you've got a bike that can be tame as you like or a beast with the taps open.

Re: '09 FE570 Issues???

I replaced my cam chain tensioner, It started rattling badly so I removed it for a look, it seemed ok so I stuck it back in then it started rattling again a couple of rides later so it was time for it to go I replaced it with the dirt tricks unit and have had no further problem. Apart from that it is one excellent machine.

Re: '09 FE570 Issues???

I am a larger rider who loves to ride single track in the rockies, and also likes to climb large hills. I have had an FE570 now for a few months, and I am blown away!!!! Most big bore bikes in the past have been sluggish and don't handle well at all. NOT the case with the 'Berg. When leaning quickly into corners, it feels way lighter than it really is. I find the suspension excellent for this type of riding, as it seems to soak up choppy bumps effortlessly. And on large hills, wow!! Not only does it have amazing power, it puts it to the ground, and finds a way to get traction. It doesn't seem to have any more top end than most 450s, but the bottom to mid range power is off the charts! On a large hill that we've been climbing for decades, I recently went over the top with the 570 in second gear. That is something that I've never done before. I'm a believer! This thing is awesome!!! Worth every penny!
