Not to my knowledge.  Just measure and slide them on.  Make sure you make some accommodation for the jury strut connections to the main struts.

I have got the streamlined struts for my 701 is there any install documentation to help me?

I'm not flying yet, but from all the positive posts on this forum, I expect considerably less drag.  I'm also leaving off the slats, adding VG's to the elevator and wings, and adding a beanie mod of sorts over the cabin. Yes I've got the Jab 2200 on the front.  It's the second one I've owned.

Yes, it looked like a tight fit all right.  So you haven't compared how they affect cruise speed, flaring, etc. yet?

Do you have the 85 hp Jabiru 2200A on your CH701?

I'm planning on installing a 100 hp Rotax.... maybe in a few months... if it doesn't get too cold in the hangar.
