Nice thread. I guess that it wasn´t me that was refered too as the rally 660 guy!?

My bike is an Adventure -01 with modified body work... No not quite, but a Factory Replica -01. It was driven in the Dakar of 2002 (and finished!).

The mods so far is:
*heated grips
*comfort grips from Sommer
*IMO 300
*End of rear frame built in CrMo instead of Alu to take
*one off rack
*One off holder and connections for the Garmin V
*Scott oiler where the emergency beacon used to be
*Stealht sprocket from KTM

It was also closely examined and serviced after i bought it an right now it is striped down for a new paint and piston/camchain (service-nothing broken).
Eventually it vill get a Cam from the Factory Replica supermotard, but i haven´t desided yet.

If some one can tell me how to insert a picture here i can show it to you all!

Best too you all!

RallyKay, Very nice, that's has to be a lot of fun. (Big Pics, for a Big Bike. ) We might just have to start a Rallye thread, with your bike and Cat0020's, It would be neat to see some detail pics of the bikes from different angles. I'd sure like to get "under the hood" so to speak, mind if I come over and disassemble yours, just so I can see what makes it tick.

Have you figured out all the functions of the IMO300R? Those are pretty nice kit. I thought those 660 Rallye already had a pretty strong camshaft profile in them? Thanks for sharing, and welcome to the ADVrider asylum. Cheers, Mack

I`ve got an `03. No mods, I`m still enjoying the suspension compared to the Dakar and the `02 r1150gs that I had. I am planning to put on some big foot pegs, raise the handlebars but not much else. Of course, I expect that attitude to change after a short familiarisation period.

Blue and orange ARE complementary colors you know. Maybe you are a latent artist

Luc, I have a '99 also. I think we have one of the best looking iterations of the Adventure.

Do you have any type of White Power suspension manual that came with your bike? I am trying to find out as much as I can before replacing fork springs.

Thanks,

Paolo

No, not you... but the bike is stunning! Very "factory" looking! Thanks for the image and specs

You Aussie bastard you! There are lots of folks in the US that are really pissed at KTM for not bringing in the '04 640 Adventure. We'll have to hear all about it when you have more time on it.
What carb is installed? Please don't beat me up anymore by telling me it's a FCR Congratulations!

Oh yea, you can't leave 'em alone for long. Bet the jump from the BMW was a shocker! PM me if you need carb jetting & air box info

Thanks guys for the posts and picture, especially the blue beauty!

my '99 adventure is almost totally stock (and i agree, the orange and blue ones are fun, if not as classy as the silver ones. but then i like bright colors-can ya tell??)

the only things i've added were the dual star weld-on side stand (highly NOT recommended), and i run IRC gp 110 "trail" tires-cheap and grippy in the dirt. i also got a happy trails rack, which i like a lot, and a set of ortleib waterproof saddlebags from aerostitch-these rock! they're a bit of a pain to open and close compared to zippers, but after one decent rain (or snow, on this last trip) i was really glad to have them. they're also DUST-proof, which is a big plus in our line of riding...

i tried EBC sintered metal rear pads, and they squaeked like crazy, and then the rear boiled over and blew a seal-any recommendations for rear pads?

my stock seat is presently disintegrating-i'll need to re-cover it soon (i have a sheepskin pad, which i also love)

i never wash my bike unless i have to do some maintenance. if i saw an adventure with no scratches and no dirt, i'd think that this is either a badass rider who never goes down and maintains his/her bike religiously, or a total poser...but never know which

You look ready for anything arunan. Have you actually used all that stuff, or did you just rob an REI?

I understand Happy Trails has two varieties of soft pannier racks; one that mounts them off the rear fender (well back) and another version that covers the "number plates" (more forward.) It looks like you have the aft mounts, but can you clarify this?

I recovered mine, and did a Flanny-style recore mod. Amazing improvement in comfort. I haven't found a down side to the mod.

Same here!

I am trying to find a manual for our conventional 50mm forks. If you have one, are you up for scanning or copying it for me? Any suggestions on how to procure one? Any help is appreciated.
