Hi!

Is the Rally cam a direct raplacement for the standard cam in a high flow headed 2005 lc4 adventure, or are there any other things to consider?

Sumi-there's a thread about the rally cam install over on ktmtalk.com in the LC4 section.

Yes, it fits. Moves the power a slight bit higher in the rev range.

Hey just found this thread. Been out of town. Don't know if registrations still apply but what the heck. Yes I have one of the beasts. 2007 issue, bought new in Calgary. Been to Inuvik on it, worst seat in the world.

Not many mods. Rewired headlights so I can run high and low beams at same time. VERY NICE. Put switch on low beam so it can be shut off when putting down fire roads at to low rpm to keep battery charging when running heated grips. Also makes starting easier with hot motor. More for amps for starter, better for it.

Took bike to Ronin motorsports in sylvan lake Alberta had it dynoed. Big improvement. Can now get 60 miles per gallon at 50 to 60 mph. Big improvement from the 45 it got previously. More riding less stopping.

Still searching for perfect tires.

Hi Guys,

I was thinking of getting a 690 for adventure riding but they have the problem of no sub-frame to support the gear on the back. So I was thinking maybe go the 640, do they have the same problem as the 690's with supporting the gear on the back?

I personally love my 640.

But if your really set on a 690 you still can get some awesome luggage for her.



Touratech is pricy but their stuff is the best!!

I have the cases on my 640.

Both the 640 & the 690 will carry a moderate load no problem & there are a variety of racks available. For extended use on rough roads with heavy loads however both bikes need modifications - the 640 needs some gusseting welded to the subframe & the 690 apparently needs stronger tank bushes/bolts/something.

Cheers
Clint

Here's the current state of my subframe, no surprise really when you consider that about 19 000 of the 38 500 km's on the bike have been loaded up touring and probably 5000 of them 2up touring. You can see the straight piece of tubing that was welded on when the charcoal cannister exited the bike via the sidepanel somewhere in Labrador a few years ago
Probably good I didn't get through Labrador this time, the subframe would have failed when I still had my girl with me and that would have been a little more irritating

weight loss


1 two 3 pieces


the reasons why

Need some advice from the 640A owners.....be nice it's my first post.

Sold the plated 450X and looking for a longer legged dirt bike. Rode a KLR and it did nothing for me, same with the DR, and the Honda is just ugly. So I am set on a 640A, but there are a couple of options......

-'99 that needs some TLC, <13,000 miles on it, easy price
or
-'06 ready to go, but with 25,000+ miles, towards the top of my budget

Figured out with my 450 that if I have a shop manual, torque wrench, and some forum wisdom I can do damn near anything mechanically, so I am not scared of the maintenance. Will do some light commuting with the goal of a CDR or TAT ride this summer.

Didn't want all the KTM bashing/"buy a KLR" crap so I posted here.

Let me know....
