    Hm, thats a little strange. I've googled a little more and found that part number 76912955544 is specifically for the 2020 Husky 701.

    I've also finally found the lowering distance in a third party dealers shop: its lowering by -40mm

    @Chillis

    Is this the interference that you’re referring to?
    It clears, but just barely. No hindrance in the movement.

    I won’t be able to get you a video until later today.

    I believe so. Lever has to be pulled inboard for clearance.

    Im not saying I shouldn't lose about 25 lbs, rather I have an age problem because I only gained 25 after turning fifty.
    With that out there, Im not so sure them power part springs are for anyone above 180, or just The same as the regular length springs.
    I think there are several ways one can approach this situation. I will speak up easily and say for me I like to have a bit more foot on the ground any and all the time at a stop

    have a good day

    I wanted mine lowered too. For technical work I want to catch in the event of a fall.

    Last year I had one of those instances on my CRF450L where I started to fall over and I'm too stubborn to drop the bike and had my first muscle pull in my calf. That felt nice.

    Yes, but I’m still not a fan of it being so close.

    I sent a email to ASV with the picture showing the clearance, and this was their response:

    ********************************************************
    It looks like your Magura clutch master cylinder is positioned a bit to far outward toward the end of the handlebar. The 701 does have a large cluster between the clutch master cylinder and grip. You want the master cylinder and lever positioned so that when your index finger is reaching out from the grip, your index finger is touching the hook of the lever.

    Here is a video we have about lever positioning that should help-

    Thanks,

    Are those the short levers or long?

    That looks very similar to the 2020 and they touch also, maybe more so if you like the adjust for a bit of standing. Yours looks to have a covering or mine doesn't over a star adjuster at the contact point.
    This is tougher issue than the brake side Im trying to figure out. In short I thought a shim to move the master cyl away. Here in the photo ( big thanks), I see its as mine the clamp setup is not parallel with the reservoir but more angled on top
    For sure like them levers though.

    Chillis,

    When you originally had your shorty levers, can you remember offhand if the clutch lever came with any hardware out the box?

    My brake lever came with some small hardware pieces, but my clutch lever did not.

    There was a cutout in the foam packaging in the clutch lever box, for what I think may have been some hardware?

    I’m going to call and ask tomorrow, but I figure I’d ask you first.

    Ditto.
    My '17 came with it installed with petcock. I love it. Sometimes I ride down the back tank to check my mileage then open petcock for another 75miles, sometimes i do the proscribed 50 miles then open the valve and get around 180miles....I do too many wheelie starts...screws the mileage.
    Either way it's super practical. I did buy a longer overflow tube to route it back down below the shock. The original is in front of the engine by the exhaust pipe and I just didn't like gas on the engine at temp.
    Question i have is my back tank has the aftermarket fill neck and the cal is not vented - why not?

    If the rear tank vent tube is connected to the aftermarket fill neck like it comes stock the cap doesn't need to be vented.

    The kit you show in your post is common to a number of KTM models, it is comprehensive in its content, but expensive to execute as you have to fully disassemble the forks & rear shock to fit the kit of springs & spacers. The height reduction in the rear is achieved by fitting a spacer, which limits the travel of the shock. The advantage of doing this, in this way is that the geometry of the machine is kept correct. I have done this on my EXC as I only have a 31 inch inseam & it has made technical riding / confidence a whole lot better.
    Due to the costs involved with labour & parts, I would personally go the route of a lower rear link & dropping the front forks in the tripples a small amount. You can easily do this yourself & if you ever sell the machine, it is easier & cheaper to convert it back to stock.

    Better to carry a magnet or buy a kick stand dongle?

    I had the long levers. I can't remember any extra hardware.

    That isn't saying anything though.
