:eek1

They reduced the area and angle of attack of the beak......



....certain disaster on the freeway......:rofl


Yeah, yeah...I know...naughty corner.

But in all seriousness, have they changed anything mechanical...or addressed the minor issues such as the shock bolts...ethanol proofed the fuel system...done anything with the front end...

No?

But they paid for retooling for the plastics.

Oh well, that's something...yeah?


sigh...

Sounds mostly cosmetic updates. The beak looks more streamlined with the bike.

New handlebar switch units and brake fluid containers, front.
About time :rofl

I read through it and thought - oh boy, the anti ABS guys are going to flip when they see this.

More electronics, and still no interest in the "warranty fixes".

Oh well.

Can't see why not. The bigger pistons are available. The bigger barrels are too, although you could just get yours bored.

If you just made it an oversquare motor without stroking it there are benefits from that.

All the other parts are available new from Husqvarna.


Gives you something to look forward to when this one wears out.

Make that two of us:clap
I like it overall, interested in seeing the suspension upgrade with the available ESA. F700 looks good IMO and should be even more fun now.
