Does anyone have a complete accessories catalogue available? Most bits and pieces are available at Husqvarnas homepage (depending on selected country) but it would be nice to have a complete PDF or something containing them all. I can not find the license plate holder and if there is a specific spoked wheel set for Vitpilen 701 or if the wheels mentioned by the dealers are the 17″ Akront Tubeless.April 20, 2018 at 2:34 pm #536
Here’s a more complete list of accessories

Thanks for link. I just looked it up and discovered many items I hadn’t seen before readily available for all three Pilen bikes.April 30, 2018 at 7:47 am #538
They have added a bit more to the official sites now as well, but I still can’t find my tidy tail. Need to clean up that tail situation asap.May 7, 2018 at 11:26 pm #549BBkeppnisParticipant
I agree. I need to find an aftermarket number plate frame thingMay 8, 2018 at 6:45 am #550
I’m also looking for a tail tidy. I’m receiving my Vitpilen today so I’ll do some measurement and then look for compatibility.May 8, 2018 at 3:44 pm #553phishbedKeymaster
Most of the genuine Husqvarna Vitpilen accessories will be landing in the US where we are based in July and August. Some of them are available now. We will be listing them in our store starting today and intend to stock all the items as they become available. Most of the apparel items in the store are currently in stock.
I’m also seeking a tidy tail/fender eliminator for my personal Svartpilen. Please post as soon as you guys find one! I wouldn’t hold my breath, it may take a while to get aftermarket accessories into production.May 14, 2018 at 12:40 pm #667
If anyone is interested the air filter out of the KTM 1290 Superduke is the same as is fitted to the 701 Vitpilen. K&N don’t yet do a filter specifically ‘labelled’ for the Vitpilen so I brought the filter for the 1290 Superduke (K&N partcode KT-1113) and it fits perfectly and runs lovely with it.May 17, 2018 at 12:54 am #692MichaelParticipant
Just put a 1″ bar riser on my Svartpilen and was amazed at what it did to make the bike fit me like a custom made suit. May not be for everyone, but it sure did the trick for me.May 17, 2018 at 2:34 pm #693Brett HawtonParticipant
I think you’re on the wrong forum. Current Svartpilens are 401s and this is the 701 forum for Vitpilens.May 18, 2018 at 4:21 pm #694
Just finished making and fitting my custom tail tidy for my 701. Really easy to do and free if you have the right bits 🙂 if anyone is interested I can post a ‘how too.May 18, 2018 at 4:22 pm #695May 21, 2018 at 7:30 am #700
Hey, I’m interested to know how you did it. I was thinking about buying a universal tail tidy and fitting a custom bracket to it.
Also is it hard to reroute the cables?

A universal tail tidy will probably work fine.
The good thing is there are 4 fixing points to attach the new tail tidy already built into the tail of the bike – you just pop out the black covers to expose them (Red arrow ‘A’). The Pillion seat is easy to remove, you take off the riders seat then pull back and wiggle the pillion seat off (Green arrow ‘B’). The current rear plate and light assembly is also easy to remove, you take off the axle nut (32mm socket) and using Hex keys dismantle and release the cabling for the number plate light and rear indicators and I re-routed (very very easily) inside the frame and up under the rider / pillion seat (yellow arrow). You will need a new axle / chain tensioner as the original assembly has it built in, the correct part number (KTM) is 60010084000 “Chain Tensioner R/S LC8” – (arrow ‘C’) – cost me £11.May 21, 2018 at 9:52 am #703
Thanks for the how to. Very easy to follow.
I’ll try it when I have time!
