Re: Buying a new FE570? Known issues, problems & common mods

Just like a brake lever is a piece of metal converting a linear force to apply the brakes. Doesn't work so well when it's not at the right height for your hands though does it?

Ever wondered why the top of the list for causes of arm pump is often incorrect set-up of your controls. You're only looking at half the equation, the other half is the fleshy bit on the seat.

It's also why short pull throttles were invented years ago.

Are we talking brake setup or your claimed ability to cure a twitchy throttle by just rotating the throttle housing to a different position on the bar???
It's a round grip...
Your hand goes on it where it feels natural. Even if the cables come out underneath or on top.
Think about it logically.

I felt the need to try and relate to other bar controls as you seem to having trouble undertsanding the basic principles of physics and bike set-up.

Do what you want, I've made my point, if you don't agree with it or don't like it...good for you.

Throttle Housing

I'm confused too. I'm all for adapting the bike's ergos and performance to suit the rider to make it comfortable and less fatiguing, and have been doing so with my own fleet for many many years. However, seemingly like others, I can't figure out how rotating the throttle housing on the bars can make any difference to the way the throttle functions. It no doubt effects cable routing and and thumb access to any switch mounted on the throttle housing. Maybe the cable was tight in the original position and not moving freely/fully?

Still, I've yet to ride an LDC, so maybe its something I just don't understand yet?

Usefull thread by the way, and perhaps a good basis for a Doc update?

And perhaps if the grip is asymmetrical in some way then that could make a difference I suppose?

And Davo, the last time I rode a new Berg was a 650, and look what happened then

A guy had a play on my DR 650 after getting off his KTM 640 Adv the other week and is now spoilt too, he sent me an email and included the following;"I shouldn't have ridden your bike as now it's my baseline comparison and it's now almost impossible to throw a leg over my 640"

But I digress from the topic

Steve,

I'm sure we're not the only 2 people scratching our heads about these new throttle physics.

Anyone else????

I "know" the throttle stop is at a fixed point so it should not matter where the housing is rotated to. I "think" what is being said is you are inclined to position the V between the index finger and thumb in between the section of the housing where the cables exit. If that is the case it would be beneficial to rotate to most comfortable position.

Re: Buying a new FE570? Known issues, problems & common mods

apologies on posting a non-throttle housing position-related topic.

muddy ride coming up tomorrow, and i've had trouble sourcing the 1/8 inch tubing for the weephole mod. so just cut up an old 40 liter chlorine container and zip-tied it to the bike just for tomorrow's ride.

earlier someone mentioned that the radiator hoses are kind of hanging out there like dog's balls waiting to be snagged on stuff. has anyone actually had this happen? i thought while i was as it i'd mess around with this piece of plastic in a way that protected the radiator hoses (see pic below) and also avoid crud being thrown up at the weephole. if it is a potential issue i might try to work do a decent job of this and make something permanent. i got the heat gun on to the plastic so i could bend it back a little at the top so crud isn't pouring off the front fender down inside the plastic bashplate.



next up i needed to extend the headlight shroud upward. being freakishly tall, i've pushed the bars up and forward with an alloy plate bolted to the triple clamps, but this left the wiring and underside of the speedo exposed. so i cut out some more chlorine container and just bolted it to the headlight shroud. just trying this out and will make something better if i like it. but went for a blat down the freeway this afternoon and i was surprised at how much wind it deflected. it also provides a bit of protection for the gps so seems to be a handy el cheapo mod for adventure riding.

not real pretty and kind of reminds me of the pope for some reason. but what the hell, total cost was $5 in bolts and nuts, $3 of white vinyl and one old chlorine container.
