Husqvarna 701 enduro long range.
« on: January 02, 2020, 06:22:07 am »
At last it seems like a manufacturer is making a bike ready to ride with factory fitted long range tanks- check out 2020 701 Husky lr.
Seems like 3 tanks each with a separate fuel pump - about 6 gallons total.
Game changer as far I'm concerned.

Correction - 2 tanks each with own pump- 6.6 gallons.
Husqvarna claims a range of nearly 500 km.

I like the idea of having separate fuel pumps. Apparently there is a switch on the handle bars where you can select from which tank you want to use.
So you should never be left in the lurch with a faulty fuel pump. I wonder whether these tanks will fit on the older 701s?

It seems that the front tank can be bought separately so it seems it can be retro fitted.

I hope so, as I hate the current front tank that leaves the bike with no "plenum" type of cavity.

I even like the looks, under circumstances.

Though, firstly, the idea of another [unreliable] fuel pump added is not that appealing, and the tank from the agents as aftermarket add-on would probably be prohibitively expensive.

It also looks like you would have to buy a new seat if fitting the new tanks. Probably a lot cheaper to just trade the old bike in on the new one.

Polyamide in this application would be nylon, yes?

I must say, this "LR" version looks very attractive, I am very happy with my 701, and the 250kms fuel range is the only slight complaint of the bike.

Cool. From the initial pics I thought it was a one piece thing. Nice to see that it's a tank covered with shrouds. Hopefully you break a replaceable shroud in a fall instead of puncturing the tank

I see on Gumtree that Bikers Warehouse are advertising the new 2020 model with the long range tank for R 164669.00. Well I will have to keep my 2016 one
which I got from Noneking. Still just under 10 000 Km on the clock. Goes like a rocket.  :biggrin:

the 250kms fuel range is the only slight complaint of the bike.

Really?
I could live with that if there would have been a fuel gauge, criminal not to have one!

I have done 280 exactly to the pumps without running out.

When the fuel light comes on, around 230 kms, I can do another 50 at a push.  I limit myself at 20 kms after the light came on.

I just came back from a ride to Rooi-els, and the odo reading on this tank is now 281.7kms. Cannot be much left, I'd say max 500ml?

Thanks, nice to know these figures. I must try to remember to reset the trip meter when refueling. 2SD any problems in your 37000 Km?

Mark, the bike has recently started losing power on higher revs, if I travel at 130 and want to accelerate, it sort of starves of fuel, or similar symptoms.

I believe it to be a partially blocked in-tank filter, which I plan to remove the moment I build up enough strength. :thumleft:

At about 10 000kms, I fitted a car fuel filter, a GUD E13, inline between tank and injector, and that also needs to be changed soon. On cars they're good for about 45000kms with much more fuel[and dirt]

flow through them, so I will replace this outside fuel filter at about 50 000kms.

This is truly the first problem of any nature surfacing on this bike.

On the other hand, I have just stripped down my 2000 model XT600E to modify the frame to take a different fuel tank, and the engine at 100 000kms is still only using about 250 ml of engine oil between

10 000km oil change intervals. The head bearings from the factory look like new parts. I am so chuffed with this Yamaha.

That said, since I got the Husky in 2016, the Yamaha has run very seldom. >:D
