    It’s that mostly flat torque curve that makes it such a usable tractable motor. The torque at low rpm isn’t far off from peak torque later in the rpm range.

    Some of you FFs probably took off the bar end weights when you put on hand guards. For those that ended up with too much vibration, how did you solve it? In my case I replaced the bar with a Pro Taper and I installed HDB handguards and used their brass inserts, but that's not enough. Is there anyone making a rubberized mount between the bars and triple clamp? I'd rather not fill the bar with lead shot or silicone or some other old-school work-around. TIA.

    BTW, I posted a question here about how to read codes the other day that got lost among the discussions about Husky 701 hp and bicycle parts :-). In case it helps anyone else, I ordered a random code reader from Amazon (A Foxwell NT301 was the only one that had same-day delivery at the time) and a obd2 to Yamaha cable and it read and reset the codes just fine.

    I can't remember if I posted this here or on another thread, but I mentioned on my Z650 that I reattached my bar end weights after putting on wrap around handguards...after getting the annoying buzz without them. mcmann, a T7 owner used some different handguards of some kind that worked with his factory bar end weights and even covered them with a grip modification.

    On my Z650 I mounted the bar ends on the outside of the wraparound guards. My inner rubber and metal components that reside in the handlebar are still there, and I just tightened the bar ends down against the end of the handguards instead of using the coned/tapered bolt that normally tightens against the end of the handguard. I thought it might look a little funky with them on the outside, but I don't think it looked odd at all. If I had a pick I'd post it.

    Mine didn't. They replaced them with their own. They were the T7 specific version too.

    We must have different Barkbusters, mine aren't the same. Maybe the different versions? The stock part is one hunk of steel, # 4 below.

    It's replaced with three parts, 9,10,11, only one of which, 11, is steel and is considerably smaller and lighter.

    The pictures aren't the same scale, but you can look at the threads that to go into the handlebar on #4 top, and #9 bottom to get a sense of the relative size.

    I sold the bike, so I can't go weight it, wish I would have done that during the install.

    Barkbuster installation instructions for what I installed are at https://filestwistedthrottlecom.s3....n Instructions/Barkbusters/BB.BHG078JET.P.pdf

    Anyone here going to sell their T7 and replace it with a Husky 701 based on this post?

    FYI, tall riders that want more seat comfort . . . a 1/2” yoga mat (between the seat pan and OEM seat foam) makes a big difference in comfort and maintains the seat shape.

    I just modified my MT7 seat for more comfort and leg room. It should work on the T7 too.
    I also added 1/4” rubber pads under the back 4 round rubber seat pan grommets for leg room. Every little bit helps.

    Did you attach a crossbar to your handlebars with electrical tape??

    I like the pro grip 719, have them on my drz as well. Do a good job of damping some bar vibration too
