  1. KTM 525 SMR caliper clearance issue

    Tech/Setups for Supermoto
    I used the OEM brembo that came off my '15 FS 450 on my 250 SXF and FE 501 which had less room between the fork legs due to the different triple clamps. I had to grind away material from the back of the caliper to make it clear the spokes on those bikes.

    I like the conti's, but I'm on my 6th rear tyre in like 11000 miles :anim_peep: and that's just street use, guess I should back off the throttle a little and maybe back it in a little less. I'm about to head out on a trip to italy and germany. taking the 701 with me and hoping to clock some...

    slave failed and yes it should be a warranty item. if your dealer's smart he'll fit a brembo piston in the magura housing since they are interchangeable and the brembo isn't prone to failure like the magura unit. seal tore so fluid leaks out, air gets in the system meaning when you pull the...
  4. 701 Grip change - Help please

    Husqvarna
    does the grip set specifically say it's for your bike? if not you probably wasted your money. lock on grip sets come with a throttle tube and cams to make them work on bikes that still use a cable to the throttle body or carb. 701 is drive by wire so it won't work on the throttle side.
  5. Still so quiet, why??

    Chat
    no offense but all I'm reading is complaints, feel free to apply for the job. Been with this board since april 2006, going on 13 years now... think I'm just about the only mod left that still checks in from time to time, but I don't visit nearly as frequently as I used to because of the decline...
  6. 500/501 vs 690/701... with a twist!

    Street Tarders
    having owned both at the same point in time. the difference is significant if you ride them back to back, I liked both for different reasons. the 701 as a supermoto is a buttload more practical, the fact I could do like 125 miles on a single tank is sweet and don't need to change oil every 15...
  7. 2008 690 SMC Black Clutch Oil

    KTM
    '08 still uses an older style magura clutch that doesn't suffer from the same issues like the current magura that uses brake fluid (bad seal on the slave, known to rip and cause a leak so the system loses pressure). check your cap on the master cylinder. if it says mineral oil you can use ATF...
  8. What does SMC stand for?

    KTM
    SMC = super moto competition. might not stand true for the 690 in such a way but the older LC4 bikes like the 660 were also the bikes that were raced in the world championship and such and used the same designation.

    still ride mine whenever I can, but I also got a new bitch that really needs some seat time. still need to finish her though, decal kit on the way.

    well my clutch slave failed lol, at the most convenient time I might add. took the bike out for the first time in 2 months because of winter. was a nice day out so went for a ride. ended up at my dealer and right as I pulled into his lot I couldn't get it into neutral and the bike started...
  12. KTM wheels on an FS 450?

    Husqvarna
    plug and play if you can find matching spacers to compensate for the different axle diameter. also need to swap over the brake rotor spacers onto the marchesini's because the FS uses wider triple clamps.
  13. 2018 701 Supermoto engine blown!

    Street Tarders
    owned my'18 for just under a year and beat the snot out of it every time I take it out and so far it has taken it like a champ so why should you be worried about a little highway use. low and constant load on the engine so why would that hurt it, dealer is probably just looking for an excuse. a...
  14. Spokes help??. KTM SMR 2010 16,5 to 17 BEHR conversion.

    Tech/Setups for Supermoto
    use the parts fiche of a '05-'07 450 smr, they used a 17" front behr wheel.
  15. Passenger pegs 2005 KTM 530 EXC Supermoto

    KTM
    525, not a 530 if it's an '05 bike. the subframe on most of the RFS bikes is known to crack at the top 2 bolts where it is connected to the frame with just 1 person on the bike, putting weight further back on the seat by riding dually will put even more strain on those point even if the...

    if I had to take a pick I'd go 690 as wel for 2019. it has everything the 701 was supposed to get in 2019 because most of it was already on the earlier 701 vitpilen, instead they left the 701 sm unchanged for 2019 which is just idiotic considering how well that bike sells... quickshifter, auto...
  17. 701 Reliability

    Street Tarders
    people often say compared to a japanese bike, but name me one japanese motorcycle that falls in the same category, meaning a supermoto, and has similar power to weight compared to a 701 or 690 smc or duke. there simply aren't any. one known weak point on the 701 is the magura clutch slave tends...

    I completely understand your situation so I'm definitely am not pointing fingers here, I understand both the customer and shop perspective so it's all a matter of finding the happy medium that works for everybody. some shops go overboard and charge crazy amounts of money for stupid stuff, we all...

    I work as a mechanic at an automotive repair shop and I have a close friend that's the local husqvarna dealer for my area so I kind of know the logic behind bringing in outside parts. most shops will simply refuse to install parts brought in by customers, either for possible liability reasons...

    in theory it would be easy to pack an extra slave and carry the tools to do a swap and bleed if I knew I was going on a super long trip, or simply switch to an oberon or brembo unit and remove the possibility of failure all together
