701 - What is this boxie?
« on: July 22, 2018, 03:07:00 pm »
On the RHS against & behind the cylinder head of the 17/18 model sits a plastic container.
No electrics connected but at it's bottom it seems to connect to the head itself.
What is it, what does it do?

I think it is a chamber for the engine breather system

Yes, maybe like a oil separator.

Helmholtz resonator - interesting concept!
Because no-one (including me!) knows I did the logical thing: went to the parts-finder.

"Resonator Assembly" - well done SuperFoxi!  :thumleft:
That actually surprises me because of the hard plastic used, this thing must act as a powerful loudspeaker.... but, who cares when one's on the back wheel eh?  :P

And Dux, nope, an oil separator will have more than a single connection/inlet/outlet - of course it will, how else is it going to 'separate' stuff hmm?  ;)

trade it in for a BMW 1150

I had the GS1150Adventure, nice bike.... until I went real offroad with it, a jeeptrack in dune-sand: the narrow front tyre (with about 95% of the total bike's weight on it!) dug in instantly, leaving no doubts as to where its nickname "SandCutter" comes from!
So I bought the F800GSA - which is immeasurably better than the Boxer Mammoth, this thing actually can go offroad!
Just for fun I bought the 701 E ..... and after the very first ride I decided to flog the F800GSA immediately: the 701 E does everything waaaayyyy better, except for highway-ing.
On a highway one wants weight for comfort, hence the big boxer's popularity - and yes, it's an awesome bike there, and you even can ride on an unpaved road with it, yay!
But, try to get up a gnarly rocky pass, or ride on a very-loose sandy road, it is immediately out of its depth, and here the 800 will go circles around it.
But the 701 will top that by another dimension, it's an enjoyable toy in comparison, but one that can do it all, carrying luggage included!
Before you will argue 'tank size'... yeah, it's less, but add the RG tank (still staying the narrow lithe bike the 701 is!) and it is more than sufficient - as it's light on fuel, 20km's to the liter if you hammer it.

Keep your Buffalo Coxwain, been there done that, and chucked the T-shirt  ;)

Sounds more like your incompetence.  ;) Yes the 1150GS is a mother but those who know how to ride a boxer have no problem with sand - and it has NOTHING to do with a "narrow front tyre" as the front tyre of the GS is not in anyway narrow? Anyway it is a misconception that you want a fat tyre for sand - a 90/90 work just fine and better as found on the HP2 and SE's. What does make a difference is a 21" wheel. Anyway one should not even start comparing a 701 and a 1150/1200 - two very different class bikes. You can throw all the farkles you like at a bike (be it a 1150 boxer or a 701) but nothing is better than improved rider skills.

Apologies guys ....didn't mean to start an argument over the merits of a 701 as opposed to an 1150. Two completely different animals. My comment was very tongue in cheek.  :lol8: :lol8: :lol8

Talk is cheap BD, go ride here - on the jeeptrack, not on the beach, it's a nature reserve.
Oh, ride, no paddapote out eh?
And use a GS1150Adv, not your more-capable HP2, released for a very good reason.
When finished come back and post a piccie  :P

Lol Coxwain, I know, but it just so happens I had one, the Adv.
Rode it anywhere, also in sand - but that jeeptrack above was the pits, I could not build up enough speed to float the front wheel.
It actually is the exact same spot where I was introduced to the XR650R, the 'unfair' bike in the group which I thought was a 450 crosser with a big tank on.
We swapped bikes (he's a better rider than me) and he left first, me last behind all 12 bikes because "with this 450 I can do anything", hence unfair for all.
But after 50 meters I found out 'it's not a 450' ... so pinned it, and overtook everybody, and parked next to my bike busy parking too  ;) ;D :biggrin:
2 weeks later I had my own, a beforkte bike it is still!
Point here is, horses for courses, and this kind of sand is not for a boxer GS, never mind a handful who will manage there.
My 800 would have gone there, hence my preference - but the 650Pig and the 701 will fly there - blame me for my preferences  :P
