Title: Husky 701 losing oil
Post by: Noneking on June 21, 2017, 03:02:38 pm
Just returned from a 2750km trip on the new (to me) 701. Added a total of 200ml oil on trip.
Lot of oil in belly pan and on right lower back part of motor.
I'm mechanically handicapped so would appreciate any advice.

Would clean the motor with prepsol first then ride without the bash plate and see where it comes from.Can be anywhere from drain bolt to oil filter housing to tappet covers  :sip:

I am wondering if not over filled and blowing out - normally into airbox on most bikes and then draining out the airbox drain pipe? This is shooting from the hip, mind, as do not know these bikes intimately (wouldn't mind a more intimate relationship with one though).  >:D

Well he said he had to add oil, unless it was correct already and then overfilled. Is it a dry sump ? They are sometimes tricky to check, never check cold.

What I was thinking - easy to overfill a bike you are not used to oil checks on. Happens a lot with boxers as well. But must say that does not look like 200ml of oil ... would make a much bigger mess.

It's possible. Checked when hot. Was worried that it was a little low and added 100ml. This was abot 1500km ago. Added another 100ml this morning before doing last 500km stretch as it was at the same level as before I added the first time  ::) ::)

 :imaposer: :imaposer:

Noneking, you check the oil level in the side-window, it cannot lie. Hold bike straight up and level should be about halfway up the window.
I also top up about 250ml/5000kms.
Unlike the dry-sump 640's, this engine 's oil reservoir is in the engine/gearbox sump.

Glasie aan regterkant?

Ek weet hierdie is nie 'n rooi Husky nie, en die rooies, selfs met olie warm, styg maar stadig in die glasie.

Ek sou olie met elke brandstofhervulling nagaan. Gewoonlik so 2 minute na afskakeling, met 'n wet sump. Hou fiets maar lank regop tot olievlak stabiliseer.

Ek is naby Noneking, en kan gaan loer.

Jip heelnag in my garage geslaap op sidestand. Hy het die bike met die hand uitgestoot en toe wil ek kyk ( my vrou s ek kyk die mense se rygoed stukkend)
Dalk net dalk omdat hy so lank op die sidestand was het hy nie onmiddelik gewys toe hy regop staan.

So ver ek weet moet die olie altyd in die venstertjie wys, warm of koud. Dit is belangrk om die enjin n paar minute te gee nadat dit afgeskakel is, voordat jy olievlak nagaan.

Post by: chopperpilot on June 21, 2017, 06:57:18 pm
Dalk net 'n vals alarm, en te veel olie bygegooi, wat by die crank breather in die airbox uitgestoot het.

Te veel olie op die spons lugfilter, wat by die airbox uitgeloop het en toevallig ook die regterkant van die fiets bemors het, het my ook al laat groot skrik met die rooi Husky!

Hot or cold you should be seeing oil in the sighting glass, at least up until half way while cold.

Just as a matter of interest, how hard did you ride it on your way home? Long stretches at above 130km/h?

No, never rode it hard. Max 125 on tar. Was trying to nurse the back tyre which only just made it home.

There was always oil in sight glass, but level differed between hot and cold.

Although the 701 borrows heavily from the 690, they are keen to market them as independent brands.

My 701 is currently at E2R and I've asked them to have a look at sort-of-known issues such as the retainer on the starter gear that's come loose, although it seems only on 2017 models, and the
sealed bearing on the cam, which some seems to have been fitted without lubricant, or not enough lubricant.

Exciting bikes, but they make you realize how you owe the Japanese for years of carefree biking.

They apparently run their computer systems independently as well, meaning the KTM crowd can't log into the Husky system to update consumer & bike info etc.
Seems they run it independently when it suits them and other times they hold back new stock on the 701 so they can sell the 690's that they still have in stock... Eish, ma nou sinner ek te lekka  ::)

Surely a wet sump engine must always have oil in the sight glass. It should actually have more when cold as opposed to hot as all the oil drains down into the sump ?

I would think so, but check accurately when engine at operating temp?

Check those No 8 nuts at the bottom of the clutch cover casing particularly those that are obscured by the foot brake lever.

I had a loose (stripped) one down there on my 690 that caused quite a lot of oil to leak into the bash plate, very similar to your situation.

Be very carefull when tightening those bolts, some of them strip very easily or come pre stripped for your convenience from the factory.
Just a tight nip should do it.

I had three pre stripped for my conveniance on my 690.
KTM of cource said that I had stripped them. Gee, No surprises there.
Anyway, the bolt hole is often drilled and tapped longer than the standard bolt, so often using a slightly longer bolt allows using the last good threads right at the end of the hole.

The two holes that tighten down the oil filter cap also strips easily. simply run n 1mil bigger taper through and use a bigger bolt.

My first KTM (990 S) still had warranty as second owner.

You might be able to transfer it.

Have you transferred it in your name yet?

Give E2R a call,reading the Puzey warranty it also states warranty void if bike goes out of ZA yet in the USA the guys can service their own bikes and warranty still covered.

Cleaned the bike up nicely and filled oil according to manual. Took it for a very gentle ride 1st and 2nd gear through or estate, about 7km

Pissing oil again

Posted on some FB Husky groups and seems like it's a very common problem. Plenty of guys posting identical problem and gasket replacement sorts out the issue.

I bought my 701 2nd hand, and the guarantee is indeed transferable.

That leak is from the crankcase halve gasket, a mission to replace.

If it were my bike, I'd clean that area up with thinners, then apply a 2-part epoxy all along the gasket line.

Backyard, yes, but something like Pratleys is not difficult to remove should you have to split the motor in future.

Noneking, I heard 1st hand of some 701's that has been redone by the agents for excessive oil consumption [not leakage though], so perhaps take this up through a dealer?

If it is not an accident-related leak, then warranty should cover it.

On the pictures it looks more like what I would guess is the clutch cover gasket which should be easy and quick to replace.

beslis die moeite werd

vir lae waardes koop een wat soos 2nm tot 25nm

hoe wider sy range hoe minder accurate is hy en bv as jy daai cover bolts doen en dis se 12nm dan mind dit nis so kwaai of hy nou 11 of 14 is nie maar dit moet constant wees sodat jy lekker equal pressure kry

I read that there are some differenes in how to "run in" the new bikes with regards to the type of oil used etc. Apparently some guys' 701 uses more oil if not "run in" hard with semi synthetic oil...I will look for the link... Then again, your bike has a leak, where others just burn more oil apparently. Might be different issues

Surely a wet sump engine must always have oil in the sight glass. It should actually have more when cold as opposed to hot as all the oil drains down into the sump ?

Correct - except when the oil is fooken thick & old, then it will not flow too well, hence the glaasie reads 'too low' when you pull it vertical.
You run 80W90 or what, or you do renew the oil every 10,000 Km's?
Fwiw, mine always shows oil, hot or cold.

Post by: BiG DoM on July 09, 2018, 10:06:11 am
With bikes I have owned I have always read the oil once the bike to be warmed up. Park it and let it stand for about 10 minutes. Then right it and check oil in the sight glass - this ensures the oils is viscous and will drain from oil cooler etc and be able to be read. One may have ones own way (and may prefer cold) but it needs to be consistent.

Not sure to be honest. Bike was sold while at dealer for warranty claim. I know that a few guys received new seats. Others only got new, improved stickers.
