Weird. I was just reading about that bash plate just this second or something very similar on advrider. Are you AussieADV by chance? Saw it in the Berg for the High Country thread. That bash plate looks badass.

Yup. Been reading that one for a while. Kinda feel like I have to go back to the beginning and take notes. So much valuable info! I'll post my bike in there soon just to join the community.

Suspension update...

Man, rough weekend. I got my sag settings where I thought they looked pretty good the weekend before last as previously posted. Rode the bike twice the following week but just a few blocks around town. Then last Friday I went in to prep the bike for a ride Saturday, lifted the bike and immediately the shock leaked a bunch of it's oil all over the place. It just absolutely let go with no action on my part that I can tell.
Is there something I may have done in setting the preload or remounting the shock?
Is there a fix I can do on my own or better to have a suspension shop refill it and check the seals?

ALSO
I found out my left rebound clicker on the top of the fork is stripped or just turning forever. It still clicks but just doesn't stop. The right one is a bit weird too. I'd like to get these working up to spec. I read a thread on here about a 390 doing the same thing. I hope it's as simple as his fix was.

Tough discoveries on a new to me bike but I know it's all part of the process.
Let me know what you all think.

I have a 2009 FE 570. I have always done the suspension myself, but last month I decided to send the forks and shock into a suspension expert, what a difference it made to the bike. It feels new again. Spend the extra cash, it is worth it.

Jake, that’s rare. Bad luck of the draw.

Get the experts to do it. On the positive side it could do with a service.

Forks, well if they are going to strip to fix, get them setup to suit. Worth it.

Yup. I think you're right. I talked Super Plush here in San Francisco yesterday. I'll get the shock serviced and in the long run get the whole thing set up by them. I'm sure it'll be amazing. Gotta save up some dough!

Update on the 570 project...

I got the shock serviced. No explanation on the weird nature of the failure but it is what it is. It just needed to be serviced I'm sure. The shock has a bunch of upgraded business in it. That's interesting to hear. I got the oil and the bladder redone and I have no idea what state it was in before so now I have to reset the sag. We'll see this weekend what numbers I can pull off. Super Plush said the 76-250 (I'm 155 lbs) is fine for now since it's lowered. And I've also heard on here that a stiffer shock is a good thing for the rear weighted nature of the bike. I found out that the lowering shim is 7mm which I think equates to lowered by 1 inch. That's what the previous owner said so that makes sense. With that knowledge: total travel of 335 mm minus the inch of lowering gives me a travel of 310 mm (hence the stiffer shock), and 33 percent of that is 102 mm race sag. Shooting for that.
Does that make sense to everyone out there?

Tonight I put a 14 tooth front sprocket on. 14/50 now as opposed to 15/50. 15/50 felt like it want to kill me on the technical stuff. A blip of the throttle was immediate light speed. I'm on the cusp of being a novice rider so we'll see if this is more controllable while I learn. I'll also play with the mild setting as opposed to the wild.

Just to be sure, there no instructions in the manual for front sprocket work. I just put the new one on. No grease, loctite blue, 60 Nm torque spec from the book. Anything I should be aware of?

My chain guide is pretty loose. Is that normal or should I look at replacing that?

Other questions:
My clutch doesn't allow the bike to roll freely when I'm pushing it around and it pulls a bit when the bike is cold and I pop into 1st. I've read this is a Berg/KTM thing but is this true or should I look into it? The previous owner said he put a new clutch in. My local mechanic (who hates KTM (but now owns a Husky 501)) advised me this was not normal. Not sure what to think.

Also, does anyone have a tool list for this bike? An essentials you take on trips type of thing? I took my tool roll from my DR and added to it what I needed as I went for the Berg, but now it's way too much. I think I could get rid of a few things.

The adventure continues!!

It’s not a bad idea to replace all the chain guides there cheap. Try adjusting your clutch as tight as your comfortable with..... he may have replaced some parts of the clutch but not all. A common problem is slow leaking slave cylinder check master to see if it’s low? I have one and every 6 month I refill it. Allballs makes a rebuilding kit don’t how well it works. I got one but haven’t tried it yet

Suspension: sounds good!

Clutch: sounds like mine! My 570's clutch is completely different than my DRZ400's clutch. The DRZ clutch clutches completely out and is more docile overall, but the 570 feels tight and aggressive. Has been about like that on those 'Bergs I've ridden. You get used to it, if it's like mine. If it's hardcore grabby then it might be off in some way of course.
