Noted, il get onto that
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.
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".
For those that can't count from 1 to 6 or from 6 back to 1, one of these might help..
Anybody tried one? ..not cheap tho..
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???)
Can you make them stop at 5
5 is enough
Edit. Don't tell Al
Just don’t take both hands off the bars when your counting!!
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 ?
November at best Unc.
Jards 701 Vit only seen the track once at Winton for a track day before Covid.
We're locked-down in Metro still...
Gotta get my shoulder right too
Haven't been able to let the 625 go yet - such a great bike (for a 5 speed)
640 adventure, 50+ horsepower 5 speed that set the benchmark for a single adventure bike
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.
Now just have to wait until the 14th before I can ride it. SAS removal kit on the bench to go on also but will get the first service done then do that.
Pivot Pegz, Rox 1"3/4 bar risers. NEW KTM WINDSCREEN SHIELD 2008-2015 690 SMC ENDURO / R / ABS / R ABS windscreen from amazon (this took ages to deliver and I was about to cancel when it shipped) fiddly bitch to fit too. Perun luggage rack. R & G Tail Tidy
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.
Considered that myself and got in touch Trailtech.
Long story short, it's not plug'n play
But there's this:
Dave's pretty excited about the 701 LR ...
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)
none, it pulls up tight against a spacer
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?
