Hey Everyone!!

I'm new here, but not terribly new to motorcycles.

A bit about myself:
-25 years old
-Union Sheet Metal Worker (think HVAC and architectural pretty stuff)
-Like getting muddy

Where I've ridden:
-St. Croix
-Wangetana? haha

I live in white bear lake, MN and I'm usually up for a cruise or to lend a hand.

My bike:
2001 KTM 640E LC4
18,000 miles
Recently had it autographed by Ryan Dungey and the KTM factory crew at a meet and greet.
Wishing I had some knobby tires, But I street it alot in the cities


When I first got it. Really clean.

My K-toom is the same, yet separate wheel set for street commuting and knobbies for Baja and desert riding.

My mileage was the same when the connecting rod (bottom) bearing locked up. I still really like the MC so am having the crank rebuilt. I may start a new thread about the rebuild. You will find lots of good information in ADV so read and learn like I have.

I would recommend rebuilding the water pump now, quality oil changes, keep cooling system in top shape, and clean air filters. Enjoy the ride, its a good model.

Handsome bike there! I'm a former WBL'er myself but down in Woodbury now. You'll find a number of the local Twin Cities folks chattering in this thread: and occasional meet and greets in the Twin Cities M&G thread.
