    I've got a 2020-----------does the rekluse gell (work good) with the quick shifter ?????
    Critic said the 2 kind of fought each other.

    Not sure what the Rekluse Gel is I put on the Rekluse manual slave cylinder.... Works great.

    No----what I meant was----does the quick shifter and rekluse work good together---one poster said no.
    Said they kind of fought each other.
    I'm wondering this because--------my quick shifter kind of sucks---------I've tried all combinations of timing for a few thousand miles and it's No Bueno. No use to tell me to try a different combo-------I've tried it all.
    I could shift it much smoother without it-------like to disable it.

    My old 690 was awesome shifting with a rekluse.----------before it blew up:D
    And then it shifted awful:imaposer:imaposer

    Quickshifters are clutchless shifting...meaning the clutch isn't involved in the process in any way. As a result the slave won't matter. And I know what you mean about the QS. I have about 2200 miles on my 790 Duke, and while it works fine, it isn't...fine. I get on another bike and I'm immediately happier with the set-up. The 790's have a cable clutch, so aren't as nice when shifting manually. And the QS finds a way to intrude occasionally if you try.
    Have you had a dealer look at it? I'm told there's a calibration/adjustment process for the sensor that essentially times the ECU actions, and it requires plugging into the bike rather than a physical move.

    NoelJ has good info for you.... I didn't feel any fighting between them and like NoelJ said I don't see why they would. All I can say is with all the problems with the OEM clutch slave I don't want it on the bike and went with the Rekluse.... good enough for the KTM race team good enough for me.

    Maybe I hadn’t noticed this before but does it look like the front drive sprocket has made contact with the front of the swing arm and worn a black groove out of it? Looking at it from the side I can’t see any clearance between the teeth and that portion that’s black. Does anyone see anything similar on their bikes? It’s the stock front sprocket.

    This question isn't 701 specific but what are others using to lift their husky? I want to do basic maintenance, lube chain, change rear tire etc. I do have a standard style MX stand but even getting my KLX250S onto it was a bit of a chore. I haven't tried getting the husky on it. The "lift" style ones and even the Tusk scissor lift that I liked all seem to have a 300lb weight limit.

    I picked up a similar lift as that and Im glad I did. It was on amazon and an otc model. Its pretty dam stable for the 701, all while strapped and easily pulling it in circles around shop or work area. Theres always a benefit for the tried n tru axle area mount and cam over lift stands.

    I use the same one for my 300.
    I replicated it with a 1100 lbs scissor lift and built a platform on casters for it.
    I have a single car garage, being able to move them around on a lift was key for me.

    Well I need to crash proof this thing a little. Anyone have highway dirt bikes hand guards set up? Also some double wall bars or at least different Bars.


    Second step will be exhaust. I am thinking complete header back and an intake. Emissions delete and some dyno time. Whats out there for the 2020? Does the PC5 work for fuel and ignition changes?

    third will be bags. Soft bages of some kind.

    so recommendations on bars and hand guards?

    recommendations for uncorking this thing?

    and bags?

    I don't think he approves of your rusty chain.
