    Crash bars on Aliexpress.com

    Easy to solve, next time one of your friends who has never ridden a motorcycle says "that looks cool, can i try", just say yes and close your eyes

    Ride Pictures!

    So I was out and about looking for a "motorcycle parking place"... and I found one... at least according to the sign. I be like "WOW my bike is HUGE!" And off for some "urban offroading"

    2020 Vitpilen 401 - Exhaust Backdating

    Nope, no issue. Just adjust your shock settings with the bike warm. With the fat cat there you can feel the warmth more vs. otherwise... still no comparison to many other bikes as far as feeling heat goes though.

    Automatics?

    Rekluse clutch compare: Roll off the throttle and there is motorbrake until you go slower than just above Idle. Gears change manually with the shift lever, quick shifter can be used so you also dont need to let off the gas for shifts.

    Dual disk

    Careful with the exhaust and filter, not that you go from a system tuned for performance to something that is all show and no go.

    Steering Damper Stabilizer 401 S or V

    I have, but it was me and not the bike, and I was able to "tune" it out. Thread 'TANK SLAPPER!!!' https://hqvadventure.com/forum/threads/tank-slapper.316/ The bike is light, and behaves as such... bikes that need steering dampers typically come with one or have a factory option to put one on.

    Handlebars (no not the type of mustache)

    I was "attempting" to measure the stock 2019 Svart' bars... not so easy when their on the bike. :unsure: And by the way, what is the motivation for upgrading?

    Vitpilen 401, Engine Control Lamp and neutral flashing, bike twitching

    As mentioned above, can check connectors for battery, sidestand switch, clutch sensor, gear position sensor, and pretty much every accessible connection point. When mine was new it had some strange electrical quirks which were improved by cleaning and reconnecting the battery, and then solved...

    Time to Shoes

    Yeah, when I expect the rain or snow I typically use a pair of Geox Amphibeox boots I have because they grip so well. You dont know what your missing though, until you catch a freak downpour in summer when it hasent rained forever... the roads are at least 5 times slipperier than Ice and you...

    SP401 w/ KTM Duke 390 Mirrors

    Good write up. Unfortunately you're right about the aesthetics... they definately are less flattering on the 401 than the 390... but on the bright side, they go well with those dot spec signals 😉

    Time to Shoes

    Liking them so far...had them in the wet too, and on the inside I stayed dry... pretty slippery soles though on wet pavement at stoplights and such.
