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.

The indicators have not melted on my 690 with the Akra or on my 701 with the LV.

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.

On the 701 SM I feel that the standard 16:42 gearing is too tall and I am going to try 15:42.

Spoiled my old girl yesterday and took out that old boring air filter and installed this little thingy....

Fits perfectly into the exact space of the standard air filter

@Operator , Make sure you apply the correct filter oil on that filter.

I use the Putoline products to clean and oil.   Always had good/perfect results  :thumleft:

Im sitting here with a red face.....

Cancelled my Order on the Husky 701 SM. That after I ordered R25k of stuff from overseas for the bike over the weekend, and all the stuff has been shipped already.

I cant have two Motard bikes, and after buying the 990SM, I decided to rather stop the Husky  :'(

That's a cotton gauze filter...... is yours a SM?
If Enduro I'd get rid of it, that type of filter lets through fines.

Nice low down grunt and some more HP and lighter - although there are some krauts that recon it adds nothing despite Tekmo having the dyno runs.

On the 701 SM I feel that the standard 16:42 gearing is too tall and I am going to try 15:42.

I fitted the 15 tooth front sprocket to my SM yesterday, and it's definitely an improvement over the 16  :biggrin:
