    Unless I missed it, it’s not mentioned in the manual. The Duke 690 after latest update redlines at 9500 rpm (tho I’ve also seen 8k and 10k listed online). Since the engine is the same I would assume it’s the same redline

     

    The vitpilen manual says dont rev above 7800 after the initial break in period. Is that for real?

    I know that it certainly doesen’t like it above 7800. (2600 miles) Honestly,  for a single, that’s pretty damn high.

    I will hit the rev-limiter and see what it is set at tomorrow and report back.

    p71 of the User Guide says 7800rpm after the first 600 miles.

    I set my RPM1 indicator to 7200 and my RPM2 indicator to 7500, and I rarely light it up – it’s well past the max torque at those RPMs, so I’ve already shifted.

    When I’ve done ‘speed runs’ I didn’t light up the indicators when I was topped out. RPMs were upper 6k at that point.

    I posted some bad info last night. mine revs and makes gobs of power well beyond 7800 without any shade of a doubt.

    So is redline 10k? 9500?

     

    It’s kind of funny/kind of assholic that the tach has numbers that go 13k….

    http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/husqvarna/2018-husqvarna-vitpilen-701-first-ride-review.html has a chart that shows them taking it up to ~9k on their dyno.

    My Vitpilen 701 starts blinking red at around 8 000 after the first service. Tested another Vitpilen 701 (with more mileage) at an event with Husqvarna which started blinking closer to 10 000. Could it be that the running-in period is considered to continue past the first service and the redline is set at a higher rpm at a later service interval?

    Thomas, you can set the RPM limits for the red light. Page 79-81 in the 401 owners manual.
    As long as the mileage is over 1000 kilometres you can set the limits of the red light. It has nothing to do with any sort of mileage after the 1000 kilometres.

    ichbinbier – Yep, saw that in the 701 manual as well. However, it doesn’t say what the max recommended rpm is.

    It only says that during the running-in phase, the rpm should not exceed 6,000 during the first 1,000 km and 7,800 after the first 1,000 km. But it doesn’t say how long the running-in phase is considered to be and if 7,800 is the maximum rpm “forever”… If so, it would seem somewhat strange that Husqvarna themselves set the redlight at about 10,000 on their demo bike.

    I know that for Ducati Scrambler, the manual says up to 5,500-6,000 during the first 1,000 km and up to 7,000 between 1,000 and 2,500 km. And maximum rpm 9,200. For Yamaha MT-07, it is up to 5,000 the first 1,000 km, up to 6,000 between 1,000 and 1,600 km, and up to 10,000 rpm after that.

    The bike has a revlimiter, you will know when u get there. Im running mine in right now but my Duke hits at about 8500.

    Just coming up on 1000km 620miles. The full big Repair Manual doesn’t say either. Looked for 30 minutes and couldn’t find it. After looking at the Motorcycle.com dyno chart I’m going to set RPM1 (light flashing) somewhere between 7800-8000rpm and RPM2 (light on solid) somewhere between 8400-8700rpm. I’ll report back 😉

    Redline is, what you programmed.

    The rev limiter at the Vit701 exactly steps in at 8900 rpm with fuel cut.
