    I’ve got one. It came with the low-miles 2016 I bought a couple months back. Too tall for me. I’ll send you some pics. I’m thinking the additional height does not extend all of the way back.

    Seat’s a little dirty (bike is too), but this should give you some idea. First pic is the stock seat, second is the tall one. There actually is additional height that extends nearly all of the way back. Let me know if you have more questions.

    Did you ever find the correct color? I would like to order some decals in Husqvarna blue. According to the Corporate Design Manual 2014 the Husqvarna blue is:

    PANTONE 534 C
    RAL 5003 Sapphire Blue
    RGB 0/37/80
    CMYK 100/65/0/65

    But for me that looks too dull.

    Folks,

    Can anyone chime-in regarding their experience with the Rade Garage tower at higher speeds above 65 mph? I know that buffeting is hugely subjective to each individual use-case as applicable to rider's height, helmet choice, etc but some feedback would be better than nothing. I would hate to spend the $$$ and end-up with a noisy bike. For perspective, I am 5'9". '

    As I see it, the worst possible scenario is if the helmet is in dirty air due to the tower. The ideal use-case would be the tower taking the air pressure off my chest, while allowing the helmet to ride through clean, non-turbulent air.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Cheers, Alex

    Regarding the previous discussion on shifting, false neutrals, etc…

    I’ve solved the issues I’ve come across by doing the following:

    1. Factory Pro Shift Kit for the 690/701
    2. Shift Star Cmpl (Part Number: 76834215000)

    3. Try lowering your shifting mechanism to get a more positive and solid shift.

    Found a post on another forum claiming it could be RAL 5011 mat

    from looking at it I believe it could be right. I have some powder coat powder coming in for a test on some prototypes. Once I get them coated I’ll post pics ;)

    here is a bicycle frame I found as coated sample.

    A pair of questions for the collective:
    1. What’s the difference between part #s 2510900000 and 79101900100?
    2. Where do these fork bleeders go? Above the adjusters on the top of the forks?

    I keep my fork bleeders at the top, not sure what those parts are and I am too lazy to look them up. Maybe clue us in with what they are referencing.

    Not sure of difference but those go on your fork caps. Look on the top of your cap and you'll see a small slotted screw. Take that out and replace with the bleeder

    I ordered this exact seat from Seat Concepts about 6 weeks ago. Hope it will arrive before 2024.... Goodness their lead times are ridiculously long these days. I'm eager to get it in, although the stock seat isn't too bad.

    This little set just arrived and I will install this weekend, ripping off all the Kalifornia nonsense.

    I’m curious. Why do most folks do the emissions removal on the 701/690 ?

    I know some owners are going towards maximum performance but even then the evaporative recapture system isn’t doing anything to hurt performance?

    Is it just kind of a “check list” item?

    I guess the only real downside to the factory setup is if the bike were to get flooded in a river or lay on its side too long after a down you could fill the evap canister creating bogging from a super rich mixture (sucking in raw fuel from canister or water if flooded)

    I know the exhaust gets super hot from the internal cat but the evap canister I don’t get?

    Getting rid of the evap on an off-road bike makes sense to me. You named the main reason. It removes a potential fail. It frees up space behind the rad for better air flow and then you can move your horn up in it's place further out of harms way.

    If you do the Rade auxiliary tank and intake, you can plumb the front tank into the rear through the rear tank vent hose, which means the evap canister isn’t doing a whole lot anymore. Removing it saves a couple pounds and opens up some space on that right side. For me, that means the ability to run a crash bar bag on that side.
