You in Paul? I’ll be there!
Might get along too.
Well you never know
Once bitten (injured) twice shy!
And to finish it off a dented front rim
This is why i cant have nice things..
Nice heavy things ...
The dent means that you are making use of it and enjoying it.
The way I see it is if I buy something I use it and enjoy to the most.
I don’t understand those that buy a brand new bike and all they think of is wrapping it in cotton wool so that it’s in pristine condition for when they sell it.
yeah dosnt worry too much, i have literally dented rims on every bike i have owned. There just another consumable
Funnily enough it looks like the same crew from the KTM rallys.
More KTM goodness hidden under the white and blue.
The swags and chairs will be provided by Ikea
Hey legends, how about a massive "Southeast Qld 701" crew turn up to the Husqvarna Ride next February - let's be the rat pack - who's in?
I'll coordinate shirts and shit with Oliver's or another shop who might be interested to be a sponsor for the 701 Rat Pack!
Not a lot of filter area with tis set up
it seems a good idea but that was my concern too when he bought them out. European green laneing is a bit different to our dusty days out. Other than a couple of inches higher water clearance, what's the advantage over the uni filter pod ?
Yeah it’s not much surface area. I use the Twin Air prefilter skins over the top which does a pretty good job of taking the brunt of the dust. The advantage over the pod filter setup is that the mini airbox retains the OEM velocity stack. Not sure how much difference that makes though.
I know retaining the velocity stack should make a difference, and a dyno may well show it, but having used an airbox with the stack in place and a direct pod filter, the seat of the pants difference isn't noticable.
So its widely accepted that the 4cs forks are among the worst White Power have made and those on the 701 are no exception. I found mine didn't react at all to small bumps then on hard landings they went into bypass and the bottomed so hard your head hurts. So i had the correct springs fitted and a revalve and things were much better but still not 100% so the next step was converting the forks to have rebound and comp on both legs and the difference is night and day. Before you had to be careful how you rode as to not load the forks too much but these are now a pleasure especially on big landings.
Ian Whiteman of pro Moto Suspension did mine and i have know him for years, some of the best money you can spend on a 701
I've had the same work done o mine by Dave at Suspension Matters.
It's the Magic Carpet ride I like now.
The difference is significant
Agree with Kiwirich, Dave at Suspension Matters did my conversion as well as work to the rear and OMG its a beast now. P.S. pretty sure the new suspension saved my life twice the other week while dodging roos and smacking a large boulder in Kroombit Tops.
There is a statutory write off ‘17, 701 on Gumtree for about half price?? Anyone know about this bike??
