I bought a pair of nice over the ears headphones, disassembled them, and attached Velcro to the back side. Night and day different! I couldn't understand what others were saying before and couldn't handle listening to music with the stock speakers. The new speakers fit in my helmet as well as the stock speakers did.
    I'm not sure if any of the other comm brands have a similar option?

    Yes the Sena speakers are crap. Tall and square. Lopped mine off and re-soldiered a top rated set in their place.

    Anyone got a luggage solution on their 701? I'd like to do some traveling this year on mine and am not sure what solution I want to go with.

    So far, this is my favorite setup that I've seen - from r/supermoto

    My stock 2017 with approx 80kg rider + riding gear.
    80mm rider
    20 static

    "My" suspension guy said I should back the preload off to get 30mm static. Claiming it will be better for road riding.

    I'd be hesitant to do this, as I don't think more than 80mm rider sag is desirable.

    The general rule of MX is 1/3 of total travel as rider sag. = 100mm on most bikes
    The 701 has 250mm travel, so 83mm would be 1/3, but not sure this is appropriate for a road Supermoto (no jumps)

    To retain the 80mm of rider sag, and achieve 30mm static, I'd need a stiffer spring.

    Interestingly the front travel is listed at 215mm. Seems quite different to the approx matched travel we normally see.

    Users manual says 70-75 is recommended.

    Ok
    70-75 sounds fair. To get that with the 25 static (also recommended in the manual - thanks for the tip) would definitely require a heavier spring.


    Is it only me that thinks this is porn?

    And probably required.

    Edit
    I just figured out where I can get the next heavier spring* from: the KTM 690E parked in my garage.
    *701 standard 75nm
    690E standard 80nm ("Heavy" option in the 701 manual)

    I'm away from home for work and have too much time to read the manuals and Internet.

    I'd like a radial master, just don't want to give up my stock handguards.

    It's too cold here to ride so I also spend my time reading

    Lol, right on! It's a nice helmet, it's not as quiet as my shoei rf-1100 but way more comfortable and a wider field of view.

    Just got a call from sprocket center and the 41t rear sprocket they sold me doesn't exist... so I've got a 44t and a new chain on the way

    Oh good point!
    I was about to order one. (Magura)
    Now I have to procrastinate some more.
    Could be a good excuse to buy "proper" handguards.

    I love my giant loop coyote bag. So awesome.

    HQV factory also makes a rear bag with a carrier that mounts behind the seat ( and could sit behind a giant loop)

    No, though I do like it with the comp and rebound dialed up a bit and that makes me think that they could use heavier oil or maybe a re-valve for my weight.

    That said it rides pretty awesome the way it is and feels good on the road.


    Has anyone with a supermoto priced out a set of 4CS suspension for off roading?

I only needed to adjust the rear wheel for the 15t, I would probably need to remove a link with the 41t rear, and if you went 16/44 probably need a new chain. Bike cruises at 70 about like it did at 80-85 with 2.80 gearing
    I'm about to try a 42/15 setup on my 2016 (rear sprocket is thrashed) - I'm gonna try dirttricks.com setup in chromoly , they only had 15 for the 690.

    My other plan is to switch to a 45/17 which is basically the stock ratio, and then the 17 give access to a bunch of great rear ratios in aluminum T6

    If the canyon roads were a little closer to me, I would leave the 15/42 gearing on my bike. 15/42 is just about perfect for in town stuff and with the weather and the road trashed at my usual canyon run spot, that's probably all I'll be doing for awhile. I'm hoping 16/44 is the perfect compromise for my situation. I enjoy tinkering with bikes though, so you never know what gearing I'll actually end up sticking with lol.

    Some pics my uncle took Monday, this is the canyon I usually ride. there are probably close to 10-15 sections on this road that are completely gone now

    People who had grab handles installed by the dealer. What did you do about the holes when you removed them?

    I put large stainless "cap head" Allen bolts with large stainless washers and some rubber washers (cut with a hole saw or wad punch from memory) in place on my 690.
    The rubber washers were to take up some or the "angle". Again from memory. I didn't do them up too tight due the angle, just used a little loctite.
    Not perfect but looks better than the holes, or the handles (which I hit my foot on every time I got on/off)

    I'm glad the handles came in the box with my new bike.

    Could something like this work?

    My bike came without them fitted, but i do occasionally carry a pinion, so drilled the panels myself.
    Pretty sure from memory that the holes are 18mm.

    Best check yourself 1st though

    I ordered a set of 3/4" rubber plugs from here

    We will see how well they work.

    I haven't noticed any coolant overflow on mine... someone on here mentioned installing a trail tech temp gauge, it allows you to adjust at what temp the fan comes on. I've been thinking of doing this mod on mine.
    How does your 16 feel after the tune?

    Let me ask the tuner if he minds. If he doesn't, I'll probably ask for $10-15 per share and split it with him. He mapped at 5% increments - it's very well done. The stock rottweiler map was pretty lean. He also did some ignition adjustments.

    2016... It turns out my bike MAY have issues. It's actually not a heat issue (bike was only at 180*F when it did it on one run), it's possibly a head gasket issue. After diagnosing it a bit, we found that it would happen when the bike was warm OR hot... but only under WOT. Up to 85% throttle, it's fine, no coolant. Past that, at ~85% throttle, sustained for more than a couple seconds, it would shoot coolant out of the overflow. He thinks there might be a crack/hole/imperfection in the head gasket that only comes unsealed when the motor is fully pressurized - which then over-pressurizes the coolant system. Since it's happened since I got the bike "used" from Husky with 1300 miles, he doesn't think it's an immediate/emergency issue, but that I should take it in to the dealer under warranty. (He emptied the reservoir 2-3 times while testing) There wasn't steam in the exhaust and there wasn't obvious fuel smell in the coolant reservoir.

    That said, I rode it home. His map REALLY smoothed out 1st, up to about 20% throttle. The bike is more docile than my WR250 now, until I get to 20% throttle - I love it!

    Sucks that your having issues already! At least it's covered under warranty still. That's awesome news with the tune though.
    I switched my gearing up again on mine from 15/42 to 16/44 now and feel like it's the perfect compromise for my rides. I love this bike!

    If anyone out there has a tune for the 17 and is willing to share... I would like to compare the tune Dynojet did for me. I can also send my tune to anyone interested. Wakeboarder911@gmail.com

    Did they do a WOT tune or incremental tune?

    Side note/clarification - I'm offering to sell the map instead of giving it away b/c it's generally considered bad form to give away a custom tune. If they're compensated, without additional work, then it's just icing on the cake for them. (Had a discussion about this at my work)

    They tuned throughout the rpm range, I wasn't there when they did the tune but the tech explained some of the process... there are cells throughout the rpm range and they tune each cell.
    My tune is or will be available on Dynojets site for free. I hear ya on the ethics of giving a tune away and wouldn't have an issue paying for a copy of a tune. I intend to take my bike in to a local tuner for a tune eventually. My bike runs great, I'm just curious if there would be a difference or not.

    Has anyone had stalling issues?

    I literally had the same problem on my 08' 690 SMC (which was tuned and supposedly stalled MUCH less than what stock did).


    My bike stalls literally all the time but it is under very specific circumstances. I.E. lets say I am in 2nd gear doing about 20 mph. I am slowing down and pull the clutch in (still in 2nd gear, but now the RPM's are at idle). I do not come to a complete stop, (maybe slow down to 8-10 mph) and then I blip the throttle to rev match (while clutch is still pulled in ) and the bike dies.

    This happened to me frequently when I filtered cars back in L.A. on my 690 SMC. It happened mostly while filtering due to the nature of how you filter (You speed up and slow down frequently depending on how heavy traffic is).


    I can not believe this is still an issue on the 2017.

    My bike stalls literally all the time but it is under very specific circumstances. I.E. lets say I am in 2nd gear doing about 20 mph. I am slowing down and pull the clutch in (still in 2nd gear, but now the RPM's are at idle). I do not come to a complete stop, (maybe slow down to 8-10 mph) and then I blip the throttle to rev match (while clutch is still pulled in ) and the bike dies.

    This happened to me frequently when I filtered cars back in L.A. on my 690 SMC. It happened mostly while filtering due to the nature of how you filter (You speed up and slow down frequently depending on how heavy traffic is).


    I can not believe this is still an issue on the 2017.
    My 17 hasn't stalled once and I have over 600 miles on it now... my Ducati hypermotard however had the same issues your having, it stalled in the same conditions... I ended up having the throttle position sensor reset at the dealer and it fixed the problem.

    Interesting info. I will see if I can take it by the dealer and have them do that (or at least maybe offer an alternative solution to the problem). I don't know if they will try and charge me for that or not (hopefully not).

    They shouldn't charge you, I would be pissed if they tried. Should only take them a couple minutes. Before you take it into them try an idle reset if you haven't already. Start the bike cold and let it idle for 15 minutes then shut it down (don't touch the throttle during the process) and place a fan in front of the radiator.

    I will give it a try. Do I do it for 15 minutes exactly?

    If I recall, it's over 15 min and less than 15:30. There is some debate around the process though.

    Yes, I set a timer for 15 minutes and 15 seconds. Don't know if it will help but it can't hurt anything and it's something you can do yourself. Figure it's worth a shot

    No problem, hopefully one of those options will fix your problem. Let us know how it pans out

    Just picked up my "17" 701. Previous bike was a DRZ 434 built by Eddie Sinseros w/ 50 HP. Looking forward to getting an exhaust and tune!

    16-44 gearing works with stock chain if you flip the adjuster blocks. Mine went on no problem yesterday (too wet to ride, so can't report out on my experience with it yet). I've seen someone in the Facebook group say that 16-45 works with stock chain too, but I can't personally vouch for that. Given the lugging I have off the line, and the fact I can go 60mph in second and don't even use sixth until I'm going 75+, my fear is 16-44 isn't enough, but time will tell... I'd be interested in hearing how others who've actually changed gearing are fairing (beyond above thread replies).

    Buy a rear 44 and a front 15 and try them both... you can use the stock chain for both and your looking at about $70. They were both good setups for me. The 15t felt perfect but I do longer freeway rides to get to my canyons and wanted to drop the rpm a little more for the freeway cruising speeds (75 mph). The 15t wasn't bad at freeway speeds, (I didn't feel like I was thrashing it) but i felt like it would be better in the long run to compromise and give up a little snap for the lower freeway rpm's. That's why I say fork out the extra couple bucks and try them both yourself... you may feel comfortable running the 15t for your rides or your situation.

    It's difficult to use anything under the engine- no flat area.

    I've attached plastic knobs (eBay) to the swing arm and use a conventional sports bike stand on them.
    Being plastic they double as crash knobs. (There is potential to damage the swing arm threads in a crash. I can't find alloy bolts in the required size. They would be a little "sacrificial" in a crash. Anyone know where bigger m10, or m8 aluminum bolts are available?

    Then if required, I lift the front with another stand under the bottom of the forks. Again, a standard front stand has flat plates with rubber on them, with steel dowls that fit in the bottom of the forks nicely.

    I have a fancy stand that fits in the swing arm pivot. (Custom attachments) it's a bit fiddly but useful for removing wheels.

    I haven't tried my "head lifter" in that bike yet.

    I used the set of mirrors from amazon for parts. You will need the black round slug from these mirrors as well as 2 of the screws. The round slugs are 7/8" diameter and that's what the crg mirrors will attach to. The 2 screws holding the mirrors together are the same size and thread as the stock screws you remove from the handguards (the screws from the mirrors are longer than the stock screws, perfect length)

    You will need 2 of the crg mirrors shown above, 2 of the washers shown above, and the set of mirrors from amazon (you are only going to be using the amazon mirrors for parts) you will need 4 parts from the "amazon mirrors" two 7/8" black round pieces and 2 bolts. The 7/8" round pieces are what your crg mirrors will attach to, the 2 bolts will replace the 2 stock bolts (too short) your removing from the handguards, and you will place a washer on each bolt. The bolts you will be using from the amazon mirrors are the same thread as the stock handguard bolts only longer.
