    Wonder what price is going to be for Husky kit. Also noticed looks like no fiddling around with the fuel pump.

    Wow! a 1000 Euros would be a killeroffer! Homologation of the 701 LR confirmed by my dealer today, has no price idea and doesen't know if a kit for other models will be avaliable. But he and i think so.

    I got the number from here:
    https://advrider.com/f/threads/husqvarna-701-lr-long-range.1415380/page-2#post-38755849
    and is mentioned as the premium on the LR model, not as the price for the separate kit (which should be higher). Still, even double that would be competitive.

    Is it possible to strip the graphics off the plastic, without damaging them or losing the gloss? Or another option, how difficult would it be to achive a matte or satin finish? I'm thinking I'd like to do something like this, with a black and white seat.

    Need to remove the axle from the adjuster to install bling. Anyone have any experience before I get creative? image-2019-11-09-11:51:01-763.jpg

    It's threaded on. Maybe get some penetrating lube in the treads and go from there.

    I do that all the time when changing from enduro to SM.
    Go to your local hardware or plumbing shop and get two narrow nuts, small enough so both fit on the exposed thread.
    If you can't get one narrow enough, someone with a lathe can cut a big one in half.
    Install both nuts on the thread and counter (tighten against each other) them.
    Now by turning the bottom nut you should be able to undo the axle.
    Use medium strength loctite when fitting the axle to its new home, loosen and remove those nuts when you're finished, é voilá!

    New owner. Only got the bike early October. This is how she sits right now. New exhaust, AXP bashplate, Aurora Lite kit mostly installed. Still thinking about the BRP Scott's mount... hmmmm... HDB handguards and Perun rack at home. Lower, larger foot pegs on order. Thinking about a tablet for navigation. Oh and carbon covers for the engine & clutch covers. Or HDPE covers? Aaaargh. Choices. :D Screenshot_20191109-233726_WhatsApp.jpg Screenshot_20191109-233821_WhatsApp.jpg Screenshot_20191109-233803_WhatsApp.jpg

    Just picked up a leftover 2019 Enduro and getting prepared to do my build.

    Quick questions for the collective...

    Is the OEM clutch slave still an issue with the 2019s?
    Debating whether I should pull the trigger on the Oberon.

    For those of you utilizing the Rade tank and running the fuel line direct to the main tank vent, which fuel cap assembly are you utilizing for the main tank? I’m looking at the Vanasche unit.

    Should I do the SAS removal? Who’s is making a good kit for that?

    Thanks in advance.

    You don't like the grey-yellow 2020 decals either huh? :D

    Honestly I was thinking buying a second set of plastics, getting them sprayed black and going for a crazy decal set like this:

    I did the siphon method on my Rade tank - used the stock filler cap and worked fine. I also retained the canister and SAS. As far as I can tell, the only reason to remove it is saving a little weight [or you hate clean air].

    Chickened out on the clutch slave and bought an Oberon, but lots of stories out there that a simple O-ring swap is just as good.

    Same setup plumbing the Rade tank.
    I opted for the Vanasche on the main tank filler only because I don't want to hassle with removing the key with each fuel stop-then there's the risk of the key breaking off in the key lock fuel filler cap.

    I like simple.

    time to install the Oxford Grip Heaters. the bracket mount that came with it has no place to install it on the clutch lever perch. i've seen people have the controller on and near the ignition switch or on the top bar clamp. i prefer on the left side of the handlebar.

    thinking of using the ram mount which i did on my X Country. i can take off the controller when it's not needed.

    how did you install yours?

    some install here

    I just mounted mine to the FlexBars with 3m dual locks. You could do it to the top of the Clutch reservoir or anywhere else you want it. Rock solid and hasn’t ever moved, even with all my dirt naps....

    Much appreciated.
    You too @dirty_sanchez
    I’m sure I’ll have more questions as the build progresses.

    Oxfords installed on my 2018.

    Have to destroy the left grip. Right easily came off using compressed air.

    Hooked directly to battery until I find the Ignition On terminal.
