640a + 625smc = !!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Don't quite know how I got to this place. It's a story too sorted to tell. A quick bio: 625SMC from the carb back.:jose All done in the living room, by a noob. Thanx for this site and the almighty LC$ thread index! The bike hammers! We'll see for how long..........-B

The meat...

Very sweet looking ride there. My 640E is jealous. :bow

a little tail...

Nice tail/exhaust. Tell us more about it. It's not super loud, is it?

B.Ross 03-18-2008 12:00 AM

It's a wee bit loud. Not too bad with the quite inserts, though. The conversion was done with 98% OEM/hardparts. I had to modify 2 seat pans to make it work( tank back SMC/ front ADV). Otherwise it was a waiting game for all parts to show up, about 8mo total. Thanx to the guys @ktmhutt for helping me with this project. It's a different beast now. I'm glad to have it done.:1drink

How much $$$$$$$ is it?

So you bought:
Subframe
Airbox
Plastics
Exhuast
Taillight
?

Will all wiring and battery etc fit bolt on?

So what is the benefit of doing this? Simply to get a large, free breathing airbox?

BTW, it looks great and you did a great job! :thumb

Hey! That's something I've been thinking of doing to my bike! Looks great! Do you think the SMC rear would fit single silencer?

I like the licence plate :wink:

Redline 03-18-2008 09:06 AM

That looks great. Makes the bike look much more aggressive. Nice job. :clap

I stopped looking at receipts months ago. I had to relocate the starter soleniod, rectifier and fuse block. All lengthened conections were sodered and shrink tubed( marine grade). It has a fcr41 carb. Spent lotz of time scrolling through microfische. Alot of little pieces parts.

More hp? Frankly I did it for ascetics as much as performance. The bike was enough for me in stock form. I just couldn't help myself.:D It'll be gett'n a dyno run at some point. I'm just enjoying riding it at the moment.

Awesome. I love the whole thing. I don't know why they come set up the way they are from the factory. They should be like that! Instead of being sort of doggy a 600cc+ bike should have some grunt. I bet that one grunts.

I notice your exhaust has 2 mounts per silencer. My system only came with 1 carbon mount. WTF? I had to cough up another $45 for another mount and it still isn't here. It looks and sounds sweet though. I bet 2 are better than 1.

That is very, very nice looking. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
Aesthetically, it seems like it needs a rear rack due to the thick seatů And do just have a plastic skid plate on it? <o:p></o:p>
