Ok, so when I do this do I then ride with my hand in the normal spot or rotated 90 too?

For awhile I was going to buy a bash plate and modify it to protect them. I have since noticed that I have never hooked these hoses up on anything on the trails so far and even after dropping my bike a few times ( we all know it happens!) they have not been damaged at all! Im wondering if they just appear to stick out more because of the unique shape of the newer bergs? I love the mods you have fashioned for your ride, keep thinking outside the box!

Here's what I bought and use: Works GREAT !! And you don't get the engine sound echo like with aluminum bash plates: Link: http://www.elineaccessories.com/ecommer ... plate.html

Your intelligence has again exceeded it's seemingly meagre boundaries. Do you know the difference between 90 degrees and 180 degrees? Obviously not, maybe we should explain it in terms of hands on a clock so you can understand?

If you took some of the advice offered by people in this thread you wouldn't need to take your bike to the bike shop to get any work done and you might actually learn something about setting up and maintaining your bike. Half the guys in the bike shop don't know their arse from their elbow, maybe you could ask for a job?

Your ego will, of course, prevent any of this happening

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

Ok, you've go to be joking. Where is the logic?

I thought going right around would demonstrate that it still makes no difference but apparently not. Here is a new 90 pic to make you happy. Hand still in the same spot.
Should i post one with it rotated forward to the brake??
1 or 90 or 180 makes no difference. 90 only gets in the way of the starter...

Also, i do all my maintenance because i can.
Hows the clutch bleeding going Moto?

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

I'll try one last time, mostly because you're funny and this is amusing

Two examples:

1. The throttle is more or less vertical (as in your first picture).
2. The throttle assmebly is rotated forward until it hits the break master cylinder. It will be different to everyone as to where they prefer it but for nostalgic puposes we'll call this the 70 degree position. Remember, all of the adjustments are typically made moving forward, not backawards.

With the throttle closed your hand is in the same position either way, on this I agree with you. The point is, it's what happens when you open the throttle.

In position 1 when you have the throttle 50% open your hand is rotated futher towards the ground and further away from the brake lever and closed throttle position. In position 2, when you rotate the throttle to the 50% position your hand will be somewhere near where it is in the picture, because have rotated your hand more at the start (more forward of the normal braking position to open the throttle). This now means that for a certain throttle range your hand is in a more comfortable position to operate the break and get a good grip on the bars.

With my throttle set-up like this I can comfortable have be controlling the throttle between 10/15%-70% throttle with my finger still on the brake lever.You try having your finger on the brake lever with your throttle open 70% of it's travel in your current throttle position.

It's only a minor adjustment but when adjusted to suit your prefernce it makes a decent difference. It's like having the bars too far back, levers at the wrong height etc., you can still ride fine but it's less comfortable and not optimum when you're getting your freak on.

Good chat, we should do it more

PS: My bike was fully repaired under warranty cheers (when the clutch housing gave out also and it had a full top/bottom end rebuild)

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

Hmmmm, I seriously do not get your logic. You've got to be having a joke as no one can be that stupid.

There is nothing on the grip that says you have to put your hand in a certain position to start opening the throttle.
My pics show that no matter where the throttle is your hand can go where ever it wants.
I'll post another one soon showing different hand positions with out moving the housing.
Maybe that might make more sense.
Or is you glove glued to the throttle before you start?

[attachment=0:u7qvuoys]Phone 093.jpg[/attachment:u7qvuoys]MR fapoosa I was that stupid about twisting the throttle forward and I stand corrected.I did gain a psychcological edge by twisting it that did help me,as we all know moto is 2% mind and 98% conditioning.I was joking about the Fatpoosa and your dad.You have the ability to kill a fly with a sledge hammer and I like that trait because I have it.Can you please list the mods to your bike so I will know what to do .Thanks Skred

Thanks Skred,
That was more of a H-bomb than a sledgehammer.

[attachment=0:apit59yw]berg2.JPG[/attachment:apit59yw]

My only advise to all you Berg owners is to pull out the wheels, swingarm, headset etc and pack the bearings with extra grease. Then check every nut & bolt and use the correct Loctite to put it back together.
I'm guessing there must be a grease/Loctite shortage in Austria at the moment.
