70 degree durability and issue thread.

I'll start.
09 FE570
100 hrs approx 2000 miles.
Bike flamed out on me 1/2 dozen times in the first 30 hours. Adlusted the idle and had the ECM reflashed, no problems since.
Changed the drive chain at 70 hours due to a little surface rust (no sprockets).
That's it.
Change the oil about every 15 hours. Clean the air filter after every ride. Lube the chain every ride.
No valve adjustment yet. I have never ever had the tank or shrouds off yet.
Going on the 3rd set of tires.

I may have to spring for a new set of hand grips and suspension service soon..

Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

ahhh.... yea, my lady who I made my wife 2 months ago for better or berg, for richer or drunker (is that a word ?), in good health or hungover as f#ck. Carn ! Lets see some worthwhile input, and perhaps solutions to the problems. Even little shit, the 11 bergs still carry some of the original shortcomings. Helllooooooooooooooo Taff are you there ?

Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

Here is our team issue log so far after about 50,000km rallye racing the new Bergs

3 x ’09 570’s for 2009 Condo 750 rallye @ 1,000km ea - top bike was 6th outright
Issues were - fuel injector blockage x 2 (one just after the event)

3 x ’09 570’s for 2009 Yilgarn Rallye @ 800km ea - top bike was 3rd outright
Issues were - fuel injector blockage x 1

6 x ’09 570’s for 2009 Safari @ 4,000km ea - top bike was 7th outright
Issues were
head gasket leaking x 5
conrod big end bearing x 1
piston seize x 1 but this one also had the head gasket go big time so was linked
subframe mounts crack x 1 this is the metal tag on the frame where the subframe bolts to

1 x ’09 570 for 2010 Dakar @ 2,500km
No issues

1 x ’09 570; 3 x ’10 570; 2 x ’10 450 for 2010 Safari @ 3,500km ea - top bike was 4th outright (this was the ’09 motor)
Issues were
head gasket leaking x 2 solid copper TR ones, went back to OEM with Hylomar gluing
conrod big end bearing x 1 ’09 570 motor
TPS sensor x 1
engine oil sight glass leaking x 1 but not a critical one
clutch cover gasket leaks x 2 (weeping only)
subframe mounts crack x 1
stator cover weeping x 3

Fuel injector blockage issue has been cured by using the Profill fuel pump filter kit http://www.profill-australia.com/ coupled with a CanAm external inline fuel filter part # 709000100 placed in fuel line at QD junction before the injector, so it has 3 filters in total, since doing this no injector issues

Head gasket leakage issue has been cured by using Hylomar gluing the laminates together and on the gasket surfaces to both head & barrel…………BUT must keep an eye on the radiator water levels to make sure all is ok

’09 conrod big ends…………..don’t know re this one, except the 2010 motors haven’t done it, it has occurred twice at about 2,500km, both with early 2009 production run motors, so ???

TPS issues, word is it affects KTM’s such as the new 350SXF as well but not heard of it before on the Bergs till this one failed


Other known issues

They will pump oil into the air filter box from the crankcase breather unless you block the vent and re-route the vent hose to the back lower part of the bike

The fuel pump has gone on a couple of local bikes but not any of ours

Fuel tanks need to be flushed to remove residue before use

Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

Good information. Interesting.

I had a bad fuel pump and I've gone through two spark plugs in 30 hours. That's about it. Valves are still in spec.

Does anyone know of a Profill dealer on this side of the planet? I'd like to buy a set.

It looks like the shipping is $2.50 US. from them direct. Not too bad of a price.

That's a deal! I saw the store was closed, but I now see that's only temporarily. Thanks.

Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

On behalf of a few lurkers I know I would like to Thank you Gazza for sharing your hard earned findings

since the safari came through there is a bit of interest in the 570 and this kind of stuff is exactly what they are looking for.

I keep telling them the 628 should be more robust but they don't believe me

Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

Just out of curiosity do you suppose it was the female condom that inspired the invention of the Profill Ultra Filter or was it more likely the other way around?
