One of my rear blinkers got caught on something and popped out of the rubber holder. Does anyone know how to get it back in. I don’t know if it needs a special tool or I’m just doing something wrong. ThanksJuly 10, 2018 at 3:07 pm #1152
Mine did the same thing. Assuming 701 is similar to 401….remove the little screw holding the lens on (like you’re replacing a bulb) and you’ll then be able to slide it back on to the mount.July 10, 2018 at 3:20 pm #1153JasonParticipant
Ok I’ll check when I get back home but I don’t recall there being a screw holding on the lens. It seemed like it was glued together and snapped in. Basically your saying I need to split the blinker to go around it?July 10, 2018 at 4:47 pm #1156jerdParticipant
Had the same exact issue happen to me yesterday on the 401. Couldn’t get it to stay back in and needed to hit the road so threw some electrical tape on it for the day. Was hoping to find a solution online today. Also didn’t notice any screw on the outside of the rubber bracket. Is it somewhere else that I’m missing?July 10, 2018 at 5:20 pm #1157
there’s a tiny philips screw holding the lens to the blinker. I’m not home to look but pretty sure it was right on the tip of the blinker. Once the lens is pulled back like you’re changing the bulb, it’s easy to see how to slide it back on.July 11, 2018 at 1:35 pm #1161huwParticipant
I just logged on to post about the exact same issue! Those little bastards are a nightmare. Someone knocked one off, and after struggling for an eternity to get it back on, I removed the other to see if I could get a sense of how it connected. And then couldn’t get that one back on either! Really hoping your solution works, @Macloven.July 11, 2018 at 1:38 pm #1162huwParticipant
Also, this is just even more motivation for me to get rid of the whole tire hugger set up. It bugged me from the start and now I just flat out hate the damn thing.July 11, 2018 at 4:06 pm #1164
Here’s a pic showing the screw to remove. Once you remove the screw, pull back the lens and you’ll see how to slide the blinker back on.September 30, 2018 at 8:55 pm #2264
What is up with this rear blinker… I or someone bumped the right one coming home from the dealer after buying the bike!
I took the lens cover off and tried putting it back on but it still doesn’t look right… maybe this is a common thing?October 3, 2018 at 2:56 am #2304ichbinbierParticipant
The problem is an engineering design flaw.
The KTM turn signals work fine except when they are mounted on the swingarm.
If you look at all other KTM bikes with the same turn signal they are all mounted on the frame.
The current design cannot handle the stresses created by being attached to the swingarm.
KTM should be issuing a recall/replacement for the current rear turn signals.May 9, 2019 at 1:32 am #4924Lifewanderer711Participant
I had this happen on the second day of owning tho bike and it continues to happen when putting on and removing the cover. It’s so annoying and a terrible design flaw. I’m in the process of relocating the turn signals but very disappointed that it’s something that I have to do to keep them from falling off. Should recall and remedy.May 9, 2019 at 5:14 am #4925
I ended up just changing out the blinkers with Rizoma, pricey but like them better.May 9, 2019 at 7:06 am #4927Lifewanderer711Participant
Nice, I like it. Will look into a replacement as well. Am shopping ideas for bags/panniers any suggestions? What sort of pouch do you have mounted on the farside of your rear wheel?May 9, 2019 at 2:57 pm #4932
The pouch is a “Leather up” tool bag fits good on that part of the license plate frame. https://leatherworksinc.com/collections/tool-bags/products/77-overstock
On a panniers I been looking at these by “Unit Garage” https://www.unitgarage.com/husqvarna401/special_parts/bags_accessories/side_pannier_canvas_subframe_husqvarna_401July 10, 2019 at 2:33 pm #5923Simon BikermartParticipant
A solution is now available from Wunderkind for under seat indicators..
