If no factory FS-es are available, then the suspension *can* be rebuilt/changed - if you’re interested in DIY R&D. The Shim Restackor program is quite powerful: Shim ReStackor, Finally software to tune a shim stack

A competent suspension shop can do it too

That’s only part of the equation (as mentioned above the yoke geometry is different, besides brakes etc).

That said, these bikes are a ton of fun on asphalt even on knobs.
Thanks from Alan

(The suspension difference is in stroke lenght (can be changed), spring stiffness (can be swapped or even cut if you’re in a pinch), and the hydraulic flow through the shock absorber valves by swapping out stacks of shims which flex as the suspension moves and control damping for lots/little suspension action (mechanically not that hard but you have to know what shims to put in).)

I'm also guessing FS springs can be squeezed into FE forks? Also FS or equivalent triple clamps will marry up to FE forks to Tourist? Regards Pete

You don’t need FS triples. Adjustable SX triples will do. There were a couple for sale for $200.

Hi.
Don`t know if it is Ok to ask questions here but Im also interested in buying a FS 570 and have found one so this thread was useful. But I also wonder if one should be worried buying A FS570 2011 that has 160 h run time and no engine work documented? Oil change is done every 15 h but piston and bearings or rod are original. Should I be worried or is this engine so good that it will last 300 h before any engine work is needed. No bad sound or any od noise that can be heard now.
Is 160 h way to much when the bike has only been on the street. No racing or enduro.

Regards
Nick..

My 2011 FS570 has over 250hrs on it I think I’m going to check the valves but that’s it.......not real hard on it small racing here and there.

Thanks for feedback on my post...

So buying one that has 160 h would be fairly safe then if oil changes has been done each 15 h. Nothing else to worry about if it sound good in the engine?
I have read on different forums and even here that piston change is needed every 90 h and bearings every 180 h and that crankshaft should be done about 200 h.
Not easy to manage if your not a mechanic. Can change piston but that about it with my knowledge. And I don`t wanna end up having a bike that needs maintenance all the time. But I have also read that FS570 is made for street riding just like any other motard. I had a Ktm 640 earlier and had no problem with that one. Is FS570 same standard as Kom 640 then I shouldn't be any problem.
