    We spoke about how much better ( easier) it was doing that ride on the lighter single cylinder bikes compared to our 990 Adv R’s from a couple of years ago. Can’t imagine trying to push a big Beemer through that country in summer.

    This.

    A "big" adventure bike [ and note, they're all getting fatter too ] will take you to some places.
    But a light bike [ ie 701 is a good example ] opens up the whole world....nothing worse than staring at lines on a map, or looking at the actual track and going "well I could try, but I'll possibly die in the process".

    Plenty of guys use them on track/race bikes Unc coz they're easy to see.

    Healtech is good stuff, i use their shift light and quick-shifter on Supermono bike.

    Need to know when you're in top gear on the 701? (Going for 7th all the time???)

    Sounds like it's good gear then. Yep 6 is too many for me. My 625 gearbox is perfect.
    Are you racers back on the track anytime soon BTJ ?

    Well I've finally had some good news teammates. After 10 weeks, I'm finally going to be allowed to go home and be reunited with my family and bike (and the growing pile of accessories that have been growing beneath it). Hopefully ill get some time to ride and campaign against the wicked witch. See ya back out there soon, lets hope some common sense breaks out soon.

    Tail tidy and wings exhaust clean up the back nicely. Anyone used a trail tech dash? Would like a bit more data than the std instruments and mounted a bit more visibly.

    Hi All
    Does anybody know what the front sprocket "in-out" play should be? (ie "in and out" towards gearbox - not rotating on the shaft or wobbling on the shaft)

    Thanks. So if it is not the sproket moving in and out - then it might be the shaft itself. Does it have any end float play?
