I Ride: HB 570 FE
Different models of 70 degree trails riding..

So I was heading for trails riding with my 570 and then gods decided to have my tire lock separate, which in effect meant I had a whole day on my buddies 450 2009. Such a lovely bike in mid twisties while the 570 is just too much. Noticed its much easier to dose the throttle on than on my 570 and at this point you start telling your self its a MUCH better bike all around.
That was last weekend, and this weekend we did high speed trials and here the 570 was just perfect.
Conclusion is I need another bike Seriously the smaller cousin is a bloody neat package. No real point with this post other than stating the obvious Bigger isnt always better.
Thanks from tourist

The only two wrong bikes to have are one bike, and no bike.

anyway - Interesting! How far do you think you'd get with a "throttle tamer" on the 570?

A fair bit, 570 is too twitchy for detailed stuff.
Problem is when you get tired and cant do with the small to none opening the 570 demands anymore, here the 450 is your friend, this you can give a wack but nothing really bad will happen. Big open stuff I rode today its just fine.
A different throttle gearing youre saying? hell yeah.

I Ride: Two FE570 -12
I had a 390 and that was wonderful in the trail but so boring in the open. Personally I find the 450 to be more difficult than the 570 as I miss the bottom but it's still hot.

So my choice is for sure not the 450 and I really prefer the 570. I just keep it on the soft setting and use a recluse. If it's really gnarly and/or slippery I go up one gear and let the rekluse take away the twitchy and hot temper. And when I get tired and I struggle to control it I blame myself and it gives me motivation to do more cardio and gym.

But in a way I agree, the difference is I would say to go 390 before 450.
"Bigger isnt always better." (even though in this case the biggest is the best :P )

390? Ill consider that.
No rekluse any more, its agitating more than anything now, gone.
I ride this bike with two fingers on the bar and two on the lever, thats the way to go in my world. Rekluse is good for a beginner getting up to speed no doubt.
Thanks from bushmechanic

Two fingers on the bar and two on the lever is the way I drive too. It's not only good for beginners and Sunday drivers like me, but some pro use them as well in both MX and enduro. My point is not to start a discussion about to use it or not, that is a bit like arguing about 2- or 4-stroke Just opinions and personal preference.

Btw, do you still have your rekluse? If you do and it's a core exp2.0 or later I have a friend that want to buy it!

I have an FE390 and an FE570. The 390 is easy to ride in the tight stuff, the 570 is a better fast-dual sport bike. 390's did not sell well (at least in the US) and a good one should be pretty easy to find.

Was going to buy a 450FX but fell thru. Maybe I'll look at both 390 & 450. Would like to try some others 300TE Husaberg's and a white 300TE Husaberg also known as Husvarna

Very happy with my FE390. Keeps up just fine on the highway, but get it on the tight single track and it's Samoan DYNAMITE. Shreds 650's at every log, rock and ledge.

I Ride: 2010 FX 450
I ride a 2010 FX450 and you can tame that puppy down with a map switch when the tracks get a little tight and tricky.

I'm am so much faster in the tight stuff with the map switch on mild but still can flick a switch and get all the power and response back, the weight difference is minimal.
