The page indicates that they fit the 701 – but it’s clear from this picture that the 701 and 401 mounting is different. I talked to F1E and they indicated that the local dealer had told them they were the same – and he was going to get a 701 to modify the product.
You can see here that the taper is slightly different, the mounting bolt is M6 not M8 and the set screw is in a different position.
That said, I was able to mount them solidly on the 701 using a factory bolt from my tail hugger removal and appropriate use of the set screw.
I’m quite happy with the position and the looks. The expanding inserts allowed me to use the factory bar end weights….I did have to put them in the vice to expand them, then tap them into the handlebar and finish off the tightening.

Hi just recieved my bars for a 2020 Vitpilen 701 last week and still the same issue they don’t fit tightly.
The taper is to narrow so when seated in the triple clamp moves a lot from side to side and the OEM bolt will not do up.
Sending them back to F1E to get a pair that actually are fit for purpose.
