Woody's Wheels!

So I took my wheels into Woody's last Friday. My front was beyond repair so I decided to go for the gold. Waiting patiently now on fully rebuilt wheels with new rims and superlace! I'm looking forward to them! I'm going w/ the silver version instead of black to save about $100. I do like the black, but figure the silver will also hide scratches better n stuff. I haven't seen any orange 640's w/ the silver wheels anywhere yet. Anyone out there have them on theirs? How about any other happy Woody's customers on the 640's out there? Been happy?

I guess I'm going to toss a set of rings in the paint shaker to stop the oil burning for now.
If you have enough miles to be burning oil, you may as well do the inlet cam follower bearings (or whatever they're called), known to self destruct at around 50k on average, but some go lots earlier.

do I have your old bike? I bought this one from a fella down in GA. My first one I bought from a fella in FL, both said they bought em from out west somewhere. They are hard to find on the east coast.

Naaw - JK - they're just twins 'cept the decal on the right side of my tank hasn't blown off yet. Got mine from lucky_strike in Louisville.

I'll let you know what I think of it's performance next weekend when the 640 is back together and ready to roll...



Let us know how the windscreen works out. I've been running a Laminar lip for the past 28,000 miles on my 07. I'm looking for something that might be better. With the added stress on the front mask, don't be surprised if the mask mounting points on the gas tank start snapping off. It's easy to fix or replace them.

Very, very nice looking .......

The few last things I want to do to my 2000 is;

FMF exhaust
The taller shield from the guy out in Germany
The KTM "comfort" saddle. The saddle on mine, which is after market is like sitting on a 4 x 4 .....

Oh - and the tank protectors ......

Some of you were asking about the auxiliary lights on my bike. I do not know too much about them, but here are some shots of how the PO mounted them.

It's a cantilevered bracket holding the lamps...there is a spacer under the bracket against the fender and a couple of rubber washers between the lights and the fender.

I hope this helps.
