  2. Hi all, Back after a hiatus from supermotos after I sold my KTM 625SMC. Now I've got a 701SM (2016) and ... of course, fuel injection, no more carbs! Couple of questions I hope someone can help with - the bike already had a few mods: Akrapovic slip on, with EVO Airbox mod. power commander V ABS dongle mod Those are all that's really relevant for this post. Essentially the previous owner told me that 0 was the bad quality fuel map, 1 was sport map and 2 onwards were standard maps. Doing a little digging, it turned out this wasn't quite correct. 1 is the soft map, 2 is the sport map and 3 onwards are standard as far as I've found. 0 is of course the bad fuel map only for dire situations on low octane. My question is, will the PCV change these maps at all? I don't know where to control the PCV maps 'on the fly' - seems this requires a separate module? Other than this I think I have it right that the PCV control injection, whereas the underseat switch controls ignition timing. This would make sense given that on low octane, preventing detonation is usually Achieved by regarding ignition. Can anyone correct me or give any of their findings? Thanks Wilbert
  3. I see the 701 manual shows engine maintenance done with the engine on a stand. How can I take the clutch cover off without removing the right footpeg/frame bracket which will mess with the swingarm pivot??? There's nothing in the manual and I don't want to cause an issue with the swingarm if I can find a work-around. ONE cover bolt is behind the footpeg! What a pain! Thanks!
  4. So the title may be slightly confusing or misleading, I've strickly road offroad for the last 13 years and do to recent happenings I am looking into Going head first into adventure riding. So initially i was certain of getting a 690 but After reading a little about the 701 now I'm at a cross roads. The 701 has the updated duke engine where as the 690 has the older version of the engine, having read certain reviews and comparisons (which are sorta hard to find), most people say the changes really don't take the 701 ahead of the 690, just makes it different. Now after seeing the reveal of the ktm 790 adventure I was going to wait till next year to buy that bike, but price weight and power all seem to be on the high side. I am seeing weights aroung 440-450, and bhp over 100... SO as for the rally thing, my ultimate goal is to make the bike a rally replica. At this point the 690 has far more options to build such a machine where as the 701 is lacking but expanding in that department. While looking at kits and items the 690 i could build over time, buying individual parts and pieces. The 701 I am mostly finding kits as opposed to individual parts. The final thing is dealer location, I have ktm dealers 1-2 hours away with 690's in stock, and husky dealers 3-4 hours away. part wise it seems like it will be just as easy to get oem parts online. thanks for any advice in advance.
  5. I am considering purchasing a smaller adventure bike for trips that mainly do NOT require camping gear but could require long road sections. I currently have a 2017 Honda Africa Twin that I have done 4 trips on and have about 12K miles most of that is adventure riding which for me seems to be about 75 % dirt and 25% pavement. During that time I had upgraded the suspension and other mods to make it more dirt and crash proof. It is reliable and has treated me well but I always feel that it is a bit big and cumbersom at times for what I really want to do. It also does not have the "Fun Factor" of a higher power to weight bike such as my KTM 500. I have a big trip coming up in the fall that I would like to consider a smaller adventure bike for. I know there are some offerings coming from KTM with their new 790 and from Yamaha with their new T700 but it seems doubtful that I would be able to get my hands on one of these prior to my trip in September and have enough time to prepare it for the trip. So having narrowed it down to the readily available 690 and 701 here are a few of my concerns regarding these two bikes. I would love some input from you all that have knowledge and experience with these two bikes. 1. Seat height. I am 5.8 with a 30 inch inseam. The AT is good for me on the lower seat height but the 690 and 701 are taller. Do I drop the suspension or just deal with it? 2. Reliability. It seems that both of these bikes are good but have known issues that can be accounted for. I am fairly mechanical and not to concerned about these but if I went with the 701 and had an issue in the field, I worry that finding service or parts may be an issue. KTM dealers seem to be abundant. 3. I would want to do modifications to the bike. I know there are numerous aftermarket items for the 690 but do not see as many popping up for the 701. I love the idea of the 701 but am concerned I would be limited in this regard. 4. Motor. Last I heard the 701 had an upgraded more balanced motor. That seems nice but the 690 has done well previously. Does this really matter? 5. Seat Comfort. I don't know much about the seat for these bikes but my AT is pretty good for all day riding. Upgrade or keep as is. 6. Fuel Range. I have only needed to carry extra fuel on my trips a few times with my AT. I would get between 35 and 50 MPG depending so not great range but it worked pretty well. I could add a rotopax to the 690/701 to keep it simple. 7. Wind screen. Even on my AT I had buffeting with the standard wind screen on road sections and it was not perfect for sure. Should I get a tower or some othe wind screen to make this bike better on the road? 8. I have heated grips on the AT and fortunately didn't need them much at all. This trip will be in the mountains and I may run into wet cold conditions. I also have a heated vest. Are there any issues with either of these bikes running external power such as grips and heated vest? Any input on any one or all of the above would be helpful and greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello, I understand that the Husky 701 has an additional ballancer in the motor to smooth it out. Not sure what year that was introduced. What I am wondering is if the KTM 690 has incorporated that in recent years such as 2017 or 2018 or if not if there are plans for 2019. Also, there had been some rocker arm issues in the past and I am wondering if there has been a revised part to take care of that rocker arm issue and if there is a model year that has incorporated that new rocker arm design. Thank you in advance for your input or direction to where I may find more information on this.
  7. Good to be back on TT after many years. Looking to seriously get back into off road enduro and dual sport riding this year. Looking to find the right bike for my riding style and goals. I'm taking the advice from the top post so here's a breakdown of the questions: 1. What is your skill Level (be honest)? Intermediate to Advanced (depending on terrain) 2. What's your height & weight? 5'11" 175lbs 3. What year, make, & model of motorcycle are you coming from? 2003 Suzuki DRZ400S & 2008 Honda CRF450R And, what do you want the new bike to do better? Electric start, a good clutch, road legal, fairly low maintenance, similar power to the 450R. 4. What's your ballpark budget? $2500-$4000 5. What types of terrain will you be riding? Dirt, woods, mud, small jumps, pavement 6. Will you be racing or just play riding? Mostly play but I'd like to enter some hare scramble & enduro races later this summer once I'm used to the new bike. My current choice: 2006-2009 Honda CRF450X w/ street title Reasoning: Obviously, I'd love a new CRF450L, KTM or Husqvarna but I can't afford them. The CRF450X seems to be the best choice for what I'm looking for because it's been out for 15+ years so prices are reasonable, there's good aftermarket support, I love the engine, and if I get one out of PA, many are already have motorcycle titles so I would be able to register it for the street in New York. Also, I feel I could handle any of the maintenance issues I've read about with them. My other contenders are the XR650R, a heavily modded DRZ400S or an older KTM. What are some thoughts?
  8. Was out riding today with my buddy. We got into some water and a little mud. Nothing to crazy. Looked down and the 701 engine light is on. I hit the kill switch and she started blowing coolant out of the overflow hose. Let her sit a bit start her up and the fans not turning on. Took her apart to inspect fan and even the bolts were hot. I coasted her 3km down a mountain. I filled her back up with water. She took 500ml. Any ideas. Keep in mind she boiled over twice and I never seen heat light or fan turn on. Thanks for any help. She's a 2017 with 1500km on the dial. Bought her brand new.

    Great day or riding in Richloam (aka Withlacoochee National Forest). Sandy soil was damp, so it made for epic at speed powerslides!
