Cheers mate. MPE are very good. Did they recommend lower offset to bring back some trail? For serious motard they are running down to the single figures ie 6mm.

Not as yet Alan, he will go more in depth if the project kicks off mate, just running the numbers on suspension, Moto Master Brakes up front and Motard rims, tyres sprockets etc, Getting that knee down on a converted Dirt Bike, Who would have thought back in the day when riding an old Elsinore

the point at the beginning you made pete was: "washing out due to no weight up the front end". nobody else has repeated that here because the 570 is infact a heavy bike and the extra weight is all at the rear and the front is actually standard. it's a heavy bike unfortunately.

as for the usual insults, it's his full time job here.

The good thing buying a FE570 is that if you regret buying it you can easilly sell it. If you want all your money back sell it as enduro and put the motard parts on next bike or sell them on the side.

That pic is with Dallas a mate of mine on my 450. He just won the Hartwell club motard and second in the supermono. I was on his YZ. My 450 is putting out 58hp. His YZ eats it!

I Ride:
I rode my FE570 for the first few months in SM trim and noticed no ill handling. Of course I’m an old fat trail rider and never pushed the bike anywhere near the edge on the street. For typical “street” riding/commuting I think a converted FE would be fine, for racing I would defer to the experts. With the dirt wheels back on, I can confidently say the thing is great off road, which is where I do have experience.
Thanks from Rainerio and PeteB
