Title: 701 Mods and Farkles
Post by: HDBaron on September 04, 2016, 09:36:10 pm
Hi there,

At Toys2Go, we've got 701 crashbars available in either white or black (R1900) or straight stainless (R2100).

Pannier racks with an integrated carrier available too.

Please message me if keen.

Cheers
Hugh

going to be bringing in some KTM 690 under-seat tanks, and by late Jan i suspect the Husky 701 (see picture) UNDERSEAT tank will be finalized....

so am looking ONLY for an expression of interest, for now, I-F anyone is interested, and in pricing (when known), etc.

http://www.radegarage.com/parts/ktm-690-tank/

If you think it's a poor design, or you would of done it differently, then THINK that.... ;)

Looking ONLY for an expression of interest for now, since shipping is expensive, but the greater number of tanks, the RELATIVELY more less-expensive shipping becomes.

thanks

I don't like the fact that it does away with the airbox. KTM designed a fitted an airbox for a reason.

the Husky/RADE GARAGE under-seat tank is ready.


I will be bringing 10 (minimum order) of these in, in a MIXTURE of KTM 690 and Husky 701....


I will be taking 50% deposits BEFORE any shipping takes place.


I need to ship 10 at a time, both for RADE, and for actual shipping, since shipping empty fuel tanks is an expensive VOLUMETRIC exercise!


Their EURO price is Euro 359.


We will bring them in for R5999 for the FULL kit, which comprises:


ONCE I HIT A MIX OF 10 KTM690/HUSKY 701 tanks, with deposits, I will bring them in - they have promised me 7 days shipping from date of order - allow another full 7 days to clear customs, etc.


GO!


What is included in the Husqvarna 701 auxiliary tank kit?

Yes, they arrived on Thursday morning, a week after the 690 tanks (were awaiting a part before shipment).

I had an op n Thursday a.m., but the shop boys were getting hold of Brett/Eddy2Race to deliver their 3 tanks, meaning 1 left over, please remind me: we're you interested, /paid a deposit, etc?

I should be back in the office on Monday, if all goes well.

Hi Guys - any dog fitted the Rade Garage Screen and extra fuel tank to their 701 Enduro? I recently received my tank and screen from Flying brick, and fitted both. Bike looks good and the extra tank works well. My problem is the routing of the Brake hose that rubs against the fairing. If you have done the screen and overcome this problem, please share this with me?

Thanks!

I think that kit is new, so you probably will not be able to find many people here with experience with it - maybe check Chris - zebra as he is selling RADE products.

But why not ask Radek  - owner of the RADA GARAGE - directly (http://www.radegarage.com (http://www.radegarage.com)). Funnily enough right now his shop is closed because he is riding somewhere between Cape Town and Namibia (may be far to Gauteng) testing new parts for 701 (that is if he was able to source 701 here, which he had some problems to get).

I know the guy (rode with him for a day or two here in SA), so let me know if you came short, I can try to check with him.

Shouldn't that be ~460km? 701 gives 23-25km/l?

Hey w@nted.

The 701 is really an enduro bike with good commuting traits, however is not made for long distance touring. By adding the rally screen and extra tank my idea is to do one or two rally events this year and some adventure trips with minimum tar riding. Even with the rally screen I get chest buffeting which is really tiring over lo g distances. I most probably would not have none better if I did not own a 1190R which is preferable over the long stretches to a 690 or 701. So I guess the 701 is for more technical stuff in fact, great for it, and good for city commuting. Keep the Gs and get a 701.  :lol8:

Any feedback on the tank available yet? How does the K&N filter affect the performance of the bike if all?
Just a heads-up, Radek visited last week, he has now CHANGED ALL 690 and 701 tanks (going forward) to the new TWIN-AIR filters, which he feels will be (even) better than the K&N used previously..

Lots to explain here, but IN BRIEF:
1. the tank size has been reduced SLIGHTLY to fit the new filter set-up...
2. the new air filter set-up IS NOT retro-compatible with the OLD (K&N) tank...
3. but he is making a 'conversion kit available to enable those who WISH (not need...) to change, to facilitate that change..
More later

Did Radek mention any new 701 products in Rade pipeline (following SA testing)?
will ask him and revert - he has some VERY innovative soft luggage WITH luggage plate, and he knows of my interest with soft luggage, so stay tuned - this CAN mean middle of the year, or later, since he TESTS a lot of stuff, and production and shipping takes time...
All his 'light tower' will now be LED's (no more HID, or whatever), and IN ADDITION the LED controller now sits ON/IN (?) the LED light housing, rather than an 'outboard' unit which was separate for each of the two LED's...
Will post more info here as it becomes available...

[font=Oswald-Medium !important]NEW Foam Filter[/size][/font][/color][/size]New small air-box that use the OEM intake and flange, that ensures a better fit to the engine.

Hi Chris

Do you know if this tank for the 701 can be used with the new airbox as part of the acrapovic exhaust kit? Or will I have to fit the filter supplied with the tank? Does it require a remap of the ECU?

I am at the last hurdle of selling my bike, which means the 701 can almost be ordered  :ricky:

Hi,

You would have to used supplied air box from the tank.
Remap of the ECU I do not think it is needed; Letting your bike idle for 10-15 minutes without touching the throttle should do the trick.

Hi

So where do everyone store their spare tubes and tire levers? I am using the bike daily and need to fit tire levers and spare tubes/patches somewhere on the bike.

Has anyone fitted a tool tube on their bike? How do you carry your puncture repair tools? *PS not looking at installing Tubless system yet  :deal:

Gooi some pics of your solutions please?
Title: Re: 701 Mods and Farkles
Post by: zebra - Flying Brick on April 17, 2018, 01:50:09 pm
the Toys2Go stainless pannier racks are designed - both sides - to take tool tubes IF needed; the 5L fuel bracket that takes a 5L plastic fuel cell can ALSO do duty as a tool tube carrier;


and the tool tubes on it's own will bolt directly to the OUTSIDE of the pannier rack, as well as the INSIDE (caution: the rising swing-arm may well interfere with the tool tube, always CHECK!)
it bolts up to the two tabs welded on to the edges of the T2G pannier rack.


Having said all that, the benefit of an ANGLED-up  tool-tube (not shown here) are that tools, if SLIGHTLY loosely packed, do not 'shunt' backwards and forwards every-time you approach a traffic light!!!


will try and post some pictures here:

Thanks, will look into it. If stranded next to the road, without a Centre stand, what is the best way to lift the bike to get the front/rear wheel out?

Phoned 2 others, not interested in making them, to a price point, of course!


So I imported Snap Jack, which is a very good option, next 20 will be under R1k, due to improved Ran/Dollar rate, and shipping bulk, with different shipper.
Once-off purchase, and we expect them to be shared between say 3 or 4 small bike riders, with just ONE rider carrying one Snap Jack...


Still, we recognize that it IS a lot of money, I will re-double my efforts to either source the crutch-type jack again, or get more manufactured.


Cheers

I don't like the fact that it does away with the airbox. KTM designed a fitted an airbox for a reason.

Yes they did, a lomp huuge contraption to silence the intake noise.
Quite effective indeed, almost as restrictive too.
And, Rade did away with that shite K&N filter (these let through fines!) and now employs a superb TwinAir filter.


Chris,

my kit's on it's way, and, although I did accept I'd have to remove the pump and drill etc, there seems to be an easier way to mount the fuel line, see this post of Amsterdam:
http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=221050.0

Needles to say, if my bike has these petcock-inserts then I'll be doing it that way!


Edited later: Chris, better read my post in the abovementioned thread, it explains why Rade's instruction to drill holes in the pump's shroud is a bad idea - so bad in fact that you should tell them perhaps?

Dwerg this is the the auxiliary tank kit from Rade garage. Kit includes the Twin air filter and the tank with all the fittings. You completely remove the original airbox and install the small airbox and Twin Air filter. The aux tank then goes where the original airbox was. Will take better pics tonight.

Bought the kit from Chris at Flying brick. They have it for the 690 as well.

there was 6L with the previous K&N filter set-up, they had to SLIGHTLY reduce the size of the tank with the newer Twin-Air set-up, so I THINK it is as near as dammit 5.9L.

Sure - RADE had those good-looking caps made up, and they leaked, so he went back to original non-leaking cap as an interim measure while he sourced a new Billet-style cap, will ask RADE what progress, and revert...
Hi Chris:
Many of you are calling for blue alu fuel cap. The Chinese one was nice but crap and did not worked.So we designed ours - works perfect. Now we need our supplier to produce many of them... sounds easy but those guys are always busy.... I hope in April we have the stock... RADE.

I'll cut mine shorter in any case, and regarding my cap I'll have mine anodized blue  ;)

Oh, any idea about the type/standard of the cap/tank's thread as supplied, is it a Acerbis type, or something else?

Yip I have, had already the moment I saw Amsterdam's post: drill tank & mount KTM petcock!

This spot sits on the vertical front of the tank, right-side near the bottom.... check your own bike, my hunch is they all have these inserts & indentation.
The tap will be there, just-reachable, and completely out of the way of anything, it'll make for a neat installation.
Mind, I'll remove the complete tank, quite a bit of work probably but to me worth it.

I often ride with a tank bag and end up pulling the bag a little backwards.  So your suggestion of cutting the tube short makes sense and might give me a bit more seat room.  Won't be more than a few centimetres though as otherwise your tank bag sits against the key.  I'll try that when I get my bike back.

Those KTM petcocks are a few Rand shy of R 300.

They give all kinds of kak with pressure build up and not venting properly.Best is still long hose venting below a hot exhaust.

Plus hose keeps cap hanging and not falling in dirt when filling up :)

I've got that aluminium bashplate on my 701 now, put it on yesterday.
It's an awesome piece of kit, the storage compartment big enough for plenty tools plus puncture repair kit, and it will protect the engine well.
Cleaning will be easy too as there's space between plate & engine, just hose any mud out - and this means it will also cool well.
Mine came with a small aluminium plate to shield the rear brake cylinder, a nice surprise  :thumleft:

Will post a piccie here later, will be away this weekend.

Get that bashplate w@nted, you'll not regret it if you want some neat storage space.
The Oberon & Vanasche will now survive when there's a chain forkup, unlike the flimsy OEM stuff.
Also took all environmental rubbish off, 3 dongles make it 'proof' against future, and possibly very remote, ECU-protests or stall's. In addition I have a more effective radiator now as the large fat carbon canister is gone - and this thing blocks the airflow quite a bit.
Maybe not needed but silicon Samco coolant hoses are virtually indestructible, plus they sit with normal hoseclamps instead of the 'break-loose' OEM rubbish, so now I can take them off AND put them back on.
Am waiting for Rally Raid's response as they supplied me a too-soft rear spring, which will work in combination with an hydraulic preload adjuster - so I can ride solo or with luggage, with correct suspension settings for both.
Toys2Go rack & bars make for less damage when I will (got no illusions here lol) koop a plaas, plus my LED spots sit on the bars and my luggage on the rack.
The Clake Two requires tailormade lines and a hydraulic switch (to replace the mechanical switch on the Magura master), plus I'll relocate the rear brake switch now as it may be in the way of the Rade garage tank.
I'll post some pics when finished which is some time away still.

RADE has just launched a few MORE new products, for the Husqvarna 701 in particular, some of which we will stock, others only upon special request: (for eg: the luggage system and 2-part rack COMBINATION we will ONLY import upon special request...)


the pictures are self-evident, the storage space is a clever use of HALF a tank for those NOT wanting/needing extra fuel, possibly those with Rally/side tanks, since then the space could REALLY be useful!


under-seat STORAGE:

rear LUGGAGE system WITH rack(s):

My under seat storage unit is in the post from Rade.

Went for this option because you could always put a fuel bladder in there if you need extra range, and the price is a third of the full kit. Only a little more effort to pour fuel into the main tank.   :thumleft:

Post by: BuRP on July 17, 2018, 01:20:45 pm
w@nted,

bought it from Rottweiler Performance.
Be careful though, they may charge more for the couriering than for the actual product(s), they did to me when I wanted to order more - but since they did not reply to my email-question I will not buy from them anymore.
Oh, ditto for Rally Raid, they also remain dead-quiet when you ask them something, useless lot them.

I relocated the rear brake's pressure switch to the foot pedal, for reason it may clash with the Rade Garage tank.
Just swap the banjo bolts (the switch IS one) and extend the cable, that's all.
I mounted a Clake Two, haven't used it other than around the block but seems nice enough, rear brake works fine either from pedal or left hand.
I glued a thin rubber liner into the RG Bashplate to quieten it, don't know if it's necessary.
Have to connect my spots and then I'll be finished.

Thanks for all the info. I also looked at Rottweiler performance. I want to order the Oberon slave, vanasche protector and side stand dongle from them. My only issue is that they list the CLU 1201 for the 701, where I know on the oberon site it is the CLU1000. I want to order everything from the same site to save on shipping, so I hope Rottweiler comes back to me regarding the Oberon.

BTW your bike looks awesome and ready for any trip!  :thumleft:

Oberon themselves supplied me the 1000, fits & works fine.
However, if someone knows if the 1201 displaces less fluid than the 1000 then let me know.
I would prefer that one instead - as my Clake clutch-lever has to be pulled in fully to completely disengage!

Those bottom studs and R-clips do look vulnerable to klaps by rocks etc. While the clips are very convenient one could always use key ring type closures, or wire the clips (will also help with dropping and losing them).

Installed the under seat storage over the weekend. Very nice kit. Rade didn't include a T piece to splice tubing but a quick visit to the autoshop and 0.79 cents (Australian) sorted that out.

The heat from the engine is immense, so before I attempt to put a fuel bladder in there (No ventilation on bladders) I want to put some heat shield on the underside of the plastic.

The air filter ties onto the airbox with a metal bracket and only two screws. I am not very confident in the seal, probably unfounded doubt, but I have ordered some twin air filter socks just as a extra precaution.

Some photos attached as reference.

Cheers

Your Iced Coffee will be Hot Coffee  ;D
I still have to install my tank (all's ready) because of same reason.
Was thinking of getting aluminium foil tape myself, basically wrap the outside/underside - perhaps try that?
Thin enough and it may do the trick.
If you've done something pls let us know if/how it works?

I am more concerned about my beer boiling, to be honest.  ;)

The idea is to exactly that. Wrapping/sticking with aluminium engine heat guard. I will report back once I've done that (hopefully over the weekend).  Going for a remap tomorrow to sort out the lean condition.

It would be interesting to see how much petrol the heat could actually evaporate, mine was so hot I could barely touch it after a half hour running about town. I've read on ADVrider of some guys who boiled their fuel in the Rade tanks.

Greatm look forward as to what you'll find.
Keep in mind that the temp of the bin may not necessarily change too much with the reflecting tape on, however the amount of heat transferred should be less.

You could try to remove the triangular key-cover also, as this then will create a path of least resistance for the intake air hence may keep your beer cool  :thumleft:

So mods thus far ...

Omega rally kit
Tail tidy (removing the large original one)
Rumbux luggage rack for my overnight trips
Engine case guard (in case chain snaps)
Modded side stand switch (I took it off and moved it to by the battery)
ABS dongle
Rade Storage kit
Anti vibration handle bar mounts
Steering damper
Paddock stand mounts

I fitted the rally-raid rear billet fuel cap, but you can't fill the tank with it. It just pisses out the overflow hole. It even pisses out when you fill the tank.
I bought the guglatech in tank filters, but it takes ages to fill the tank. I just take one with me, and use it if I think the fuel may be dirty.

Chris the most common problem for this is twisted filters.

The filter needs to lie in the correct position inside the tank to ensure that there is ease of flow. Filter also needs to be opened up correctly.

This does come up from time to time, but always resolved by reinstalling the filter.

I've got the omega kit, so its 3 tanks that I need to fill.
I made sure they where fitted as best as possible, but they "foam" quite a bit, so it takes ages to fill.
I also removed the Rally raid rear tank tap, so back to stock now. Not much point in filtering the front 2 and not the rear, so when the rear 701 standard filter comes in I may just try again.

Just a heads up that you guys might want to replace your subframe mounts on the 701 with aftermarket units like most guys do on the 690. We had an incident at the Tankwa Rally this weekend where a competitor broke the standard subframe mounts on his 701 during the event.

1st I've heard of this (701, anyway); we have stocked the 690 replacement tank bolts for some years now, do you not think the 701 bolts only broke (?) due to extreme use, or not?

I guess it's a possibility Chris but the guy wasn't a heavy weight at all and he wasn't racing with any extra luggage systems etc. so I wouldn't expect it to break, even if he hit a few big jumps. I think the touring bikes go through a lot more abuse.

I fitted the Rade Garage storage solution. Works really well.

One issue with the kit, is that there is a large gap between the bracket and frame, so you need to make up some spacers.

I also added some foam to the cross bar it rests on in the front, and drilled a small hole in the tub to let water drain.

The fasteners I replaced with SS nuts and bolts too.

Can fit quite a bit of stuff in there.

Twin air system seems to be working very well to. No dust getting past. Just make sure to grease up the mating surface of the foam and filter unit.

Thanks for the confirmation SM, I expected so hence I have one on order also.
I don't often ride with the tank in it, and then some space for groceries will come in handy.
Plus I have some other tanks coming (https://specialthings.it/collections/husqvarna-701-enduro-parts/products/husqvarna-701-rally-tank-kit-with-seat-kit) for the real long trips, and then I may use it for storing some water.

Hi Mark - If you get a chance please shoot a pic or two of the relocation of the sidestand switch, seems a good solution rather than buying the dongle.

Hyde products work well purely because of the plastic type and thickness, but donít expect something that fits well, comes with good quality screws or is well-finished.

But they do protect as they should.

The language used fitting their bashplates and swingarm guards lol

Swingarm guards look like shite as well, but nice and thick.

All you need are axle sliders, crash bobbins and an end can slider.
The OEM hand-guards are shite and will break the first time the bike falls over.
I fitted the OEM skidplate that came off my 690R onto my 701SM, its good enough for a SM.
She is a little lean off the bottom with the LV pipe and open airbox cover fitted and something like a boosterplug will help, although a proper power commander is what I would love to fit.

Personally I would fit a regular style damper. I think this is for the racing boys. The Scotts requires the BRP damping unit that is cluttered overkill imho. I have fitted the Ralle Moto RM3 from Oz and very happy.

Talk to the guys on the facebook 701 SM page - they do not always park their cyber egos at the door, mind.

Talk to me boet - just recovering from farklitis on my own bike  :imaposer: Tail tidy is actually also unnecessary on these bikes. You just take the lower part of the mudguard off, brake light is a great led unit, and replace the indicators with flush mount LED's that fit right in where OEM were.

I did the same by removing the bottom part of the mudguard. Why did you replace the indicators?

To prevent exhaust melting the LHS one. Also tidies everything up that can get damaged or hooked.

Interesting you say that.  My bike first had the Wings pipe on and now the Akrapovic from the 690 and the standard indicators have survived without any signs of overheating.  I think the USA spec bikes have something different and they seem to suffer a lot from melted indicators there.  Not sure if our bikes are different or if I am just a lucky guy.

Essentially I had seen the photos of meltdowns and got the flush mount LED indicators included with the Rade kit for fitting on the fairing - I ended up re-fitting the OEM front indicators but inboard behind the screen (works great and good visibility - will post some pics) so had the indicators spare anyway.

I would say a nice to have rather than a must have. I did not ride the bike extensively before fitting it and also fitted a LV Evo One pipe at the same time so difficult to make a big judgement call on it. Certainly the two together plus the Rade airbox made a noticeable difference (not just in sound  >:D). Unfortunately little access to dyno tuning here in the EC to have hard data.

Fair enough.
Luckily I did things more step-by-step, and the very first few meters with the Stealth Exhaust on were an eye opener, won't forget it!
Then came Rade's airfilter ... and I though wow, where did that meek bike which I bought go to?

How much did it cost you to import that Vanasche case saver?
I see they're $99 but Im assuming you didn't buy it locally right?

Get that bashplate w@nted, you'll not regret it if you want some neat storage space.
The Oberon & Vanasche will now survive when there's a chain forkup, unlike the flimsy OEM stuff.
Also took all environmental rubbish off, 3 dongles make it 'proof' against future, and possibly very remote, ECU-protests or stall's. In addition I have a more effective radiator now as the large fat carbon canister is gone - and this thing blocks the airflow quite a bit.
Maybe not needed but silicon Samco coolant hoses are virtually indestructible, plus they sit with normal hoseclamps instead of the 'break-loose' OEM rubbish, so now I can take them off AND put them back on.
Am waiting for Rally Raid's response as they supplied me a too-soft rear spring, which will work in combination with an hydraulic preload adjuster - so I can ride solo or with luggage, with correct suspension settings for both.
Toys2Go rack & bars make for less damage when I will (got no illusions here lol) koop a plaas, plus my LED spots sit on the bars and my luggage on the rack.
The Clake Two requires tailormade lines and a hydraulic switch (to replace the mechanical switch on the Magura master), plus I'll relocate the rear brake switch now as it may be in the way of the Rade garage tank.
I'll post some pics when finished which is some time away still.

Buy local - I got one very similar to the Vanasche made by Rost through Flying Brick (I got silver but also available in black).

Bashplate - best imho is the AXP one from France, brilliant design, fits with two bolts and incorporates linkage protection. I am not a big fan of alu ones - noisy and tend to hang up more easily than poly ... that one is a bit too clunky for me.

Just a word of caution, I have read on advrider forum about the crash bobbins mounted onto the frame possibly leading to cracking of the frame. I will look for the thread...

https://advrider.com/f/threads/husqvarna-701-super-moto-and-enduro.1086621/page-1221#post-36357834



"Over on the 701 FB groups, there's been a few, very rare documented cases of frame tabs cracking. In each case, there was a frame slider attached to the bolt on the frame tab that cracked. In NONE of the cases was there a crash or even a tip over, the cracks formed just by riding the bike hard.

There's been no definitive proof it had anything to do with the sliders (partly because no crashes), and could be just a coincidence. My personal theory is the frame tab could be stronger, and the frame slider adds weight hanging off it that just continuously vibrates like a metronome with that weight hanging off (anyone who's had them installed knows how much the mushroom vibrates, you could always feel it on your knees), and over a period of time, it fatigues the frame tab and forms hairline cracks (and in one or two cases, cracked a chunk of the frame tab right off). Again, that's one man's theory, but who really knows, it could have also just been a few defective frames possibly.

Given that, the general consensus on the SM side seems to be to not risk it, and many have removed them or don't install them in the first place now. The other, probably more important, thing is the frame sliders don't really come into play that much in an off due to the geometry of the bike (give your bike a nap sometime to see what I mean), so don't really provide much protection anyway, making it really not worth the risk (if there is any).

Personally, I think peg sliders will play a MUCH bigger role in a street off than frame sliders would, yet very few people have them. With bar end, peg, axle, and exhaust sliders, plus cheap plastics, you've got fairly good coverage (for street)."

Guys, I received my bike late last night.
Havent ridden it yet, apart from in the complex and wow, Im really impressed with how smooth the motor is.

Compared to the 2016 I test rode, this 2017 does seem to have a lot more of a refined engine.
(Not saying there is anything wrong with the previous years, just a big noticeable difference)

ANYWAYS....

Do any of you have difficulties getting the Steering to lock?
I tried a few times last night and eventually gave up.

It just doesnt want to "latch"

I have had the same problem and solved it by spraying some Q20 or similar in the lock.  It can also be that the lock bracket has broken which means you will need to buy a new ignition switch.

I've always preferred the look of the white ones over it's orange sibling, so when I found a low milage 2019 701 Enduro, I decided it was time to bite the bullet and raid the piggy bank :snorting:

I spent quite some time over on AdvRider reading the entire 701 thread from beginning to end, and it seems there are a few things you have to sort on these bikes to ensure peace of mind. I have been around long enough to know there is no perfect bike, but when I asked @SparkMark for a list of things to address, I wasn't quite prepared for the list he sent  :eek:

I do intend to change a bit, but I am not out to build a full rally replica - so I think I will take it slow and work out what I do need one step at a time, hence this thread.

But for now, here she is  :ricky:

Top priority to fit is under seat tank, Seat concepts seat and Rally screen (which I can help you with) and luggage rack. If you intend doing some long distance with it (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200204/d05d73f7fd05127ed2da2f17eec55d97.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200204/b4179f2688caa9a486986f6d3a153c3c.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200204/05c8c56036244eee2f694c5ac6dea3fe.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200204/443544624727a3a82c8a79b7f923195a.jpg)

Congrats Teebag!

My must have mods:

1. Clutch slave (Either oberon or epdm o ring in original slave, OEM one will break and leave you stranded)
2. Guglatech fuel filters to protect fuel pump. Also replace the fuel pump strainer every 4000km
2. Exhaust (OEM does not do the bike justice)
3. Aux tank under seat (Rade garage takes range to 300km +)
4. Eliminate side stand switch (OEM will give you issues)
5. Some sort of fairing if you will use it for extended times above 80 kph

Enjoy the machine!

Not really a farkle but 1st thing to address was to replace the original rear tyre, been fairly happy with the D606 on the rear of other machines, so thought I would try one 1st - letís see how well it holds up.

I had a couple of things that I had to attend to on my 690 so I cant say 100% they apply to your baby but its worth a look, the wiring underneath the battery box was not very well protected and mine chafed through after about 30 000km Id recommend taking those plastic covers out and wrapping with some proper loom tape, next was the canister on my rear shock got quite severely chafed by the main thick part of the wiring loom (that part is very stiff and well protected) I got by that by wrapping the canister in  in a thick walled PVC pipe and securing with a jubilee clip

the other must haves Id say are a new slave cylinder for the clutch, I went with an oberon and Im very happy its super light. a USB charging system, there is a spare accessory power cable behind your light that works great for this , I also fitted a manual timing chain tensioner just for peace of mind but I havent personally heard of the stock unit failing it does however reduce engine noise at startup

nice to haves for long trips into the sticks is bypass resistors for the side stand and rollover switch and a spare fuel injector (mine clogged in namibia even though I ran a golan inline filter) these bits go a long way to fault finding in case the bike stops and you are getting no blink code from the dash

maintenance wise see if you can get your hands on a set of cables that allow you to measure the voltage to the TPS and the butterfly position sensor thats pretty much the only thing thats difficult to do at home

ADV rider has a couple of very good forum posts about bulletproofing the 690 and also a great thread that explains how to fault find electrical issues I would suggest doing some reading there so you really know how that beast works

other than that enjoy it and try to keep the rubber side down haha

This little bugger is known to cause issues and there is a R1000 dongle to bypass on later models.

Or you can just be cheap, glue a magnet to the sensor and tie it up somewhere higher up on the bike out of harms way.

The switch it's self is quite a solid unit and not usually a problem. The problem is the plastic mounting goody that costs around R30-40. I replaced the plastic bracket with an aluminum block. Works like a charm and sturdy as hell.

That could work, that plastic thing and itís mounting are a joke.  I also read about the magnet getting knocked out of alignment, but that may be on the older models as this one has a locating pin to prevent that from happening.

I have completely removed the in-tank plastic filter, and fitted a straight connector in place, Then I fitted a GUD E13 filter between tank and injector.

After several issues I am quite wary of the under-seat tank, as air filter area becomes very small, and some has leaked dust.

My bike has done 37000kms without problems. I get reliably to about 225kms before the reserve light comes on, and has seen 280 kms on a tank a few times.

@teebag, I have a Rade Garage tank with (brand new) K&N air filter plus cleaning/oiling kit for sale if you are interested. It is just the tank, air filter and fuel tank connection block  so you need to get a fuel cap and the connection pieces which is easy enough. R3500.

Gideon Joubert runs this set up using a foam filter cover from a Yamaha quad bike over the K&N and that has worked very successfully according to him.

Next up, something that has been bugging me for a while. The clutch slave o-ring. With an increased sense of urgency after 2 failures last week, of my friends 701 enduro (8000km) and Svartpilen (2500km) within 2 days of each other.  So coming up to 5000km I was starting to feel it could let me down at any time.

The 1st challenge is finding a o-ring of the correct material EPDM, trouble is all the normal places donít stock, or say just use what they have. For reference Coastal Seals in Maitland had the correct one - size and material, so I bought a few (2.5mm x 22mm ID)

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/7a5660b73cd6ec8d11ebc21fd813d8a3.jpg)

The job is fairly straight forward, if you take your time and think it through. I managed to remove the slave, replace the seal and refit the piston, without loosing too much fluid. 

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/760e6ae026779bb5b22c2c01776f9736.jpg)

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/3e3b4aba6dd4ff34e552b49f97862faf.jpg)

I found a use for the bands on the exhaust header which meant I could keep the piston level throughout.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/ff09a74276c55cb983c0a62411328216.jpg)

Bleeding was a simple matter of pulling the lever slowly repeatedly until no more air bubbles came out, whilst ensuring the fluid level didnít drop too low.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/74dce4d3927b1f5dc82db6ad2632d4b4.jpg)

Everything back in its place and a quick wash to remove any fluid from the plastics and paint.

I also took the time to loctite the gear position sensor bolts, I had been told that on early models they werenít and if that thing moves, no playtime.  In my case there did appear to be locking compound on the threads, so maybe they started doing it on later models.

Total cost of fix R4.50 and some Dot 5.1

The fitted seal was looking worse for wear so I looks like I may have dodged a bullet and saved myself the expense of having it let go somewhere remote and far from home.

Very good mod that I have also done a while back. Bought a good batch of the o-rings online and gave many away to members of the South African 701 Enduro Facebook page.  Too many waste money on Oberon slaves when all you need is a 50 cent o-ring.  :thumleft:

No offense, but EPDM is pretty much the standard material for all "O" rings, the problem would be a small town supplier stocked up with Indian and Chinese rubbish (they make great stuff and crap to price level by the buyer) brake systems I am no fundi, but if I can buy a Viton seal or "O" ring versus EPDM I buy Viton, a R50 difference versus stranded and or tearing it down.  :peepwall:     
Title: 701 Mods and Farkles
Post by: teebag on February 26, 2020, 08:43:41 pm
I also went down the EPDM vs Viton rabbit hole, as it turns out Viton is a brandname owned by DuPont for their FKM (Fluoroelastomer) range.  While FKM (FPM in Europe) is resistant to most chemicals, it is not suited to glycol based break fluids such as Dot 4 and 5.1 see table below.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/6518de81667e1d2367904da5c684fa82.jpg)

The next states Viton is not suited for Auto brake fluids

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/579f4a4e9e86d683fbd86c285dfb4131.jpg)

The 3rd picture is of the o-ring which came off my slave piston, not stock and which i believe to be Viton or other FKM based on the brown colouring (they can be brown, green or black which makes things clear as mud), as you can see it was not doing well, and probably wouldn't have lasted much longer.

Yes have one on my 610 and 450 and have had them now on a string of my sons extreme enduro bikes. Best is they are virtually indestructible, slide over rocks instead of hanging up like aluminium likes to do, and also do not amplify engine noise like metal bashplates.  :thumleft:

Ended up getting the AXP bashplate - brilliant! Attaches with two bolts, indestructible and has excellent linkage protection.

I have the AXP and also assisted Xavier with developing and improving it with better side coverage. I am very happy with it and it does the job superbly. That said it would be a difficult call if I was now in the market for a new one - I like the single formed construction but would like more info more how it attaches at the back (hopefully not to the engine).

Ja - magnetic plug looks pretty normal esp for 5000km (which is a good interval imho). For noting the strainer filters can just be cleaned with carb cleaner or petrol and blown out with compressed air. Also you can use HiFlo oil fliters readily available as well - HF155 and HF651

we do sell the replacement airbox component only, I have a sales guy who runs the RADE Garage side for me, will give him  shout to get some details, since we all work from home during lockdown. We actually keep stock, but will need to accces our pastel system to see what stock(s) we have.

Adding an in-line fuse can be done - but this is fiddly or lastig but a bit bulky at the least.... plus it has to sit as close as possible to the battery terminal etc, adding to the fiddly part.
Just cut the CTek's eyelets off, terminate spade crimps and stick these into the ACC1 (or 2, dunno which one is the UNswitched set but that's the one you will need), and then Bob becomes your Uncle, simple as shite whilst safe as houses  :P

No, it is just a bad decision in fitting that slave cylinder to that bike, i have read that it was designed fo mineral oil and the master for dot - heaven knows why they have not bothered to address the issue. I am sure they arrive pre assembled from the Magura factory, I have read that the KTM Brembo kit uses a round o-ring and that it may be a problem with the square edged Magura seal

PM me an address and I will post you one or R85 and will Courier Guy it door to door.

Thanks for the offer  ;)

I decided to get the Oberon slave cylinder.

Installed this today. The original clutch action was smooth and light but I'm surprise by how much lighter the Oberon is. You can operate the clutch lever with your pinky. 

Tip: Don't get your teenage daughter to help you bleed the clutch...........

Going to try this setup - already thinking a smaller rack.

I just strap directly to the standard grab handle rack. Works for me and I really like having the handles for moving the bike about.

Unfortunate. Sometimes you get guys not using them on SM's or just prefer a rack and are willing to part with them.

I am looking at options for a 14 day trip. 30L back pack for all my clothing food,tools ect but would like to have my tent and sleeping bag stuff on the back of the bike.

I have the rade garage luggage rack but it seems like the bags to fit on these racks is quite limited. Anyone got any advice ?

Where does that rear panel decal come from (with the H logo)? Look pretty cool.

For the Tent and stuff would suggest a 51lt ENDURISTAN TORNADO DRYBAG and for other luggage THE ENDURISTAN BLIZZARD SADDLEBAGS (4 sizes available) -

It is part of the Husky sticker kit from dealer.

Personally I avoid a backpack - makes one top heavy and is tiring. I use a Giant Loop Coyote on the rear of the seat and then add the tent, sleeping bag etc on top. I do not use a rear rack and do not want stuff too far back. I have a smallish tailbag I attach to the OEM grab handles.

The only thing that I try to avoid is covering the stupid fuel cap, So I was looking at the U bag option to keep the fuel cap open but the options is very limited. But I will look more into these giant loop bags.

On my beamer luggage was never an issue ::)

Even with my giant loop mojave, the cap is covered, otherwise the luggage is sitting too far back. It is not really a hassle to loosen it to refill.

I use both a Mojave and Coyote. If you position them on the rear of the seat they do not obsruct the filler - only if you then also add another tailbag or bag on a carrier. A tailbag is easy to loosten and lift one end up to fill.

I had my lighter bulky stuff in the blue bag and another 5 later fuel can in the GL.  This works but I did not carry a backpack.  With a backpack the GL needs to go back a bit which is not ideal in some riding conditions.

After about 250km dirt riding, not too dusty after all the rain weíve had, and nothing in the airbox, some sort of pre-filter helps, using pool basket filters until I can find something better suited.

I use the PC 1344 pre-filters that are the perfect size.  Work great and one can easily carry spares for longer trips. TwinAir also make.

TwinAir:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycle-Airfilter-Skins-2-pack-Motocross-air-filter-sock-Twinair/290974422111

GoPro thumb screws also work great for attaching the filter rather than the supplied screws.

Next to find that power source behind the headlight.

The location actually works better than I expected
