My 462 has so far not coughed its guts up all over the forest floor.
But I’m keeping a close eye on it.

spoke to a stihl rep last week regarding a idle problem, asked what the most common problems were

back handle, anti vibe and fuel solenoid

Stihl has come out with two new models of fuel solenoids. They appear to be universal for the Mtronic carbs. I'll see about replacing the one on a 241 shortly here and let ya know how it goes.

ive been eagerly awaiting the release date for a while but from what I've read I will be getting the 572 and waiting till the 500i gets a bit older  a common mistake I've made in the past is buying straight away and finding faults and having to by the upgrade kits or they were recalled etc

The 500i has been in action for a while in the guise of a cut off saw.  I expect the teething problems are already out of the way

So much...
However,
A close inspection of the new stihl catalogue revealed the 500i will actually run a 30" bar.

Nothing wrong with an 80cc on a 25" even a 75cc will pull it. An 85cc will piss a 30" bar

 

Don't know owt about 500i

 

Plenty of people have run a 25" bar on an 044 and it pulls it fine...
