New owner. KTM 640 adv.
Picking it up Tuesday.

Cann't wait.

It's on a 08 plate. Weight reduced for rallying and come with a road map and other bits and bobs for competing in a Rally.

Here's a few pics.

Good looking bike and congrats.

Thanks, I just could walk away from it. I love the way it looks.

Nice bike!

Just so ya know, Orange Crush is for KTM v-twins.

ericGSsti 01-12-2013 01:46 PM

It's a 07 model on a 08 plate.

Thought orange crush was for all things orange. :huh

Take it I should have posted in the beasts section?

Ah. Can this thread be moved over there?

Hondo 01-12-2013 02:24 PM

I asked a Mod to move it.

ericGSsti 01-12-2013 02:33 PM

Thanks Hondo. :D

Nice machine, what muffler is that?
Looks like the Competition muff.

ericGSsti 01-13-2013 12:32 AM

It's an akrapovic exchaust. Sounds amazing. Really loud, may need ear plugs. :ear

It was a competion bike. It will be used for every thing now.

Looks like the OP has cut down the standard low front guard to make them into fork protectors.

Nice bike.

Welcome to the club!

Congrats on the nice bike.

The chain looks to be on the tight side.


ericGSsti 01-13-2013 02:37 AM

It hadn't been used since its last rally last year and I did notice dirt on the chain.

I'm hopefully picking up a Haynes Manual during the week so I'll check the chain tension then as I know nothing about 640's yet.
