    It was a shop in UT that did the map.

    They need the bike to be able to see if it flashes.

    Oem chain guide has two different height mounting holes for sprocket sizes if you haven’t already known this as stated in the owners manual. I’ve upgraded to a TM Designs unit.

    Scratch the wiring question.

    Is there a little pin that activates the brake solenoid?

    You need to clarify your question a bit. There is no Solenoid valve in either brake system. A solenoid valve is an electrically operated coil that pushes on a valve to open, or rarely to close it. Are you trying to describe the mechanical device that operates the rear or front brake light switch? Some are just mechanical microswitches, others are pressure switches.

    Guessing your brake lever is not activating the brake light switch?

    I meant micro switch; I think. The brake light was continually showing on. I had a buddy helping me with the levers install, and he had dropped a small piece on the brake lever that we ended up finding.

    @Chillis

    There was no movement required of the ASV levers. Everything fit OEM specs.

    @Chillis

    I just read back through the comments, and realized that you mentioned the ‘clutch side’. I’m taking pictures right now.

    You're by Costa Mesa?

    I'll be headed down there soon and if possible I'd like to see the levers/function.

    I’m pretty mobile. I’m usually out by the Buena Park area, ‘KnottsBerry Farm’ and such, but can meet you in Costa Mesa, or wherever.

    If you need more pictures of a particular spot with the levers, let me know and take the picture best I can.

    Mainly I want to see the pull back of the lever on the clutch side and any interference issues.

    May have to pick up a set of they have any.

    Those levers are different to the ones I had.

    For the ‘pull-back’ on the clutch lever, you want that as a picture or video?

    Doesn’t seem to be any interference as far as I’m concerned. Very clean action. Pull and release.

    How are these ones different from the previous ones you had?

    I have seen this elusive pin ( in photos only ) this being on the front brake lever, typically when working in the assembly. It wasnt clear in discussions if there was a part number, yet has been copied in a means to make work!

    Video of the pull is what I'm interested in.

    Yes, I notice the owners manual describing with arrows the above > 45 tooth and the below<44 tooth, thats a good reference.
    These 2020 husqvarna enduros come out the box with the 46 tooth, and it looks to barely work with a 48 tooth. Im clear it could be better written in da book.

    thanks for the heads up though &
    Good day there

    Hey guys,

    there is no way around it, for my kind of riding I will have to lower the 701 Enduro LR if I get one. Now there is the following lowering kit available in the power parts catalogue: 76912955544
    upload_2020-10-20_20-11-4.png

    Does anyone has this kit installed? How much lower will it get?

    Also a more general question: On the pic I can see the lowering is done by changing the springs. Is this a good way to lower a bike in general? What is the best way? Would a lowering by Kouba link or similar be better?

    I tried to get that installed on my bike and they said it did not work at the dealer.

    Curious of what you find.

    They said it was for earlier models of the 701 pre '20.
