Anybody want to buy my rottweiler fuel dongle? Will come with the 02 sensor delete as well.

I finally installed my PCV, so no longer need the dongle.

I paid $38 bucks, sell for $25.

Stan, Killer write up!!! almost made me want to buy another one!!

i would like to hear your opinion of the dongle vs the pcv.


i do have an odd question. so when putting new hand guards on, you need to remove the pin/ bolt in the clutch lever and remove the hard plastic that the pin/bolt threads into. it gets replaced with some parts that are given to you at time of purchase. i was able to find the rubber magura replacement boot and i was able to find the pin/ bolt. but i don't have the nut to secure it ( idk why it is missing..should have been threaded onto the bolt)

my question is, what is the thread pitch on the bolt?

i don't own calipers ( need to buy some..harbor freight) and would like to get an idea of what i need before i go to osh

I may have a replacement. Let me check my parts bin and make sure it fits. From what I remember, it's just a really thin nut that sits on the master. No nylock or anything like that.

IF I find it, you can have it. I have a ton of spart nuts/bolts for KTM bikes.

Thank you guys!

Stan. Not needed but thank you!

I took the bolt with me and stopped at osh on my way home from physical therapy. It ended up being the first one I tried. Itís a 5 mil corse thread but already forgot the pitch. Grabbed some blue locktight since it doesnít have nylock. Iíll put a dab on when I install the zeta guards.

Supposedly everything is on sale at osh. But I think they upped their prices. Iíve been eyeing a nice big Webber grill for the past 2 years. Was 1,000$. Now 2,000$!? Lol

Changed some more stuff. Added intake, PCV map for all mods, and graphics kit.

Bike is running really well. Very snappy throttle response, good power - roll on throttle in 2nd will hoist the front, and still 120+ miles to the tank. Rode to SF and back and thought I was on a twin on the highway.

I woke up yesterday and thought "why not try and ride this thing!?" So, I geared up and rode the 701!

Holy shit that thing is fucking fun!!

My knee is not where I want it bending wise, but life is short.

I've got to say, I was pleasantly suprised by the power and feel of the bike! I've ridden 1 Drz sm and was not impressed..and not impressed by the BMW 650 and 700 gs (power wise)

And maybe it is because I have not been on a bike since May 2. But the 701 is EXACTLY what I need right now..light, nimble, relaxed rider position and FUN!!!

I have been able to push the bike around myself the past few weeks which has inspired me.

Gave the bike a FULL detail. Spent about 6 hours doing that...made her look brand new. (Bike is 100% not leaking oil..previous owner just never cleaned it)

Then the week after, I put some parts on..

Yesterday I rode it for about 5 miles. Will work on going further distances.

Then came home and changed the look of the bike

Zeta handguards, crg mirror, r&g spools, baja designs xl 80 headlight via motominded, backyard designs graphics kit

The arrow pipe and fueling dongle the previous owner put on make the bike rip and sound great!

May down the line get a Rottweiler intake solely to have the storage bag..obviously would do sas / Evap removal and pcv if I do that...bike doesn't need it though

I gave myself a personal goal to ride in October..I rode the last day in September...granted..it was around the block...but I was back on 2 wheels!!!!!

Damn, that bike looks good. That black seat and the decals look good. I wish it came black from the factory.
That headlight looks awesome too. Glad you were able to ride it, even if it was just around the block

Surprisingly yes, I tried on the bottom but visibility was crap. Up there is much better. Granted, the under bar looks a bit better to me. But with only 1 mirror, I wanted to maximize how much I could see. Instead of looking over your shoulder like the oem, you look through the gap between your torso and arm

Good stuff man!

Glad to hear you're riding.

I remember my first ride back from my crash on a 690 SMC, one that put me in the hospital with 4 broken ribs, broken thumb, etc. I put the bike back together in the garage and hobbled it down the street and back and got a ticket. lol I guess the world was telling me I wasn't ready.

thanks man!

jeez! yea, sometimes the world drops hints on us.

went out to ride the other day and it started raining...i took the hint and went home.


i have officially ridden! went out for a 75 mile loop yesterday. had to pull over after 30 miles and just stretch the knee out..only took maybe 45 seconds.
watch out by calero! the road is all dug up. regardless. the bike is AWESOME! i love it!!

didn't have to wait until june for that 1 wheel action! comes right up in 1st and 2nd! the riding style suits me. i have always liked bikes with handlebars and this one is no different! it seriously lacks the power of and s1000, but i knew that buying it. the only time i had a power issue is when i was stuck behind a car and i would normally barley blip the throttle on s1k, this bike i did not feel confident enough to pass in a spot i Always would ( very long straight with great lines of sight)

bottom line. i am very happy with this bike and will enjoy smoking some supersports in the twistys when i get back to that aggressive of riding.
