I'm not sure if it's all back together yet, my mechanic was farting around with it. I'll check when I get home next week. So far so good I haven't missed trips because of my bike, it's always work.

Let us know how it goes..........

@akarob re: 640's for sale

I just bought a low mileage '02 640 Enduro. You just need to spend the time with CL search engines. I was actively looking at 3 at the same time. Bought the one with the lowest miles in the best condition for short money.

Ummmm...

" '02 640 Enduro "

A 2002...

6500 miles. Still had the original tires on it. Quietest 640 engine I've ever heard. Last year imported and red. Clean as a whistle too...

Perhaps you're going deaf in your old age, old man.

Guy's, I got an Canadian insurance card from Gieco. It's free, just have to ask. Don't know if you need it but I thought I'd throw it out here.

Nice! Might want to check if the main bearing upgrade was done. I have a 2002 640Adv and it needed upgrading. And maybe rebuild the water pump as preventative maintenance while your at it.
