    FS: 2018 Vitpilen 701

    It's time, it was fun. 2018 Husqvarna Vitpilen 701. An absolute gem in the canyons. ~75hp with a real (measured) weight below 350lbs with an up/down quickshifter. Bike is clean, no damage. Garage kept, and never saw rain. I am the second owner and bought the bike in November 2019 with 580...

    Tell me again why I should sell my Vit...

    ok friends, you've heard me about other bikes before. So, lately the love for my little Vit was slowly dying. It had developed into a love/hate relationship. I love the way it looks, but I was slowly starting to dislike the way it steers. Too sensitive on the front wheel/bars, too much...

    The 701 SM has a new triplet sister

    (Always loved redheads) Nothihg new here of course, yet it wins the beauty pageant for me with the red bodywork and the cast wheels.

    Brabus 1300 R

    Not impressed, but only 77 in each color made so I guess it will be expensive and sold out it minutes… (Yes that is a ‘Pilen headlight)

    Sure you want a Norden 901?

    I see this beautiful DesertX become an instant classic. I'm in love. I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Both the Norden and DesertX were initially revealed at EICMA two years ago as prototypes. But while the Norden is already becoming a bit dull, this machine just got more and...

    Non-Husky canyon ride

    I know, too heavy, wheelbase too long, that 19” front wheel and underpowered to hang with the big boys. But it is what it is.

    Rear tire size...

    Yo! A friend of mine just received the first of a few Badwinners shipments to build her own Badwinners Leclerc 701. Yes, the full monty! Anyway, included in the kit are 5.5x17" Dymag carbon fiber wheels. This size should accept 180 width tires. Here's the thing, I know first hand even a 160 on...

    Anyone did their own valves at 6000 miles?

    Did they need any adjustement? Im doing it tomorrow if I find the time, but I don’t have a box of shims or a micrometer (yet). Just curious what to expect.

    Tires and pressures...

    Ok friends, I live in canyon heaven. The roads here are super winding, and rough. Ruts from trees under the tarmac, patches, crumbled tarmac, cracks. Also, no room for errors. Stuff like this. When I got my Vitpilen 701 year and a half ago, I could never become friends with the stock tires on...
