Question

Dagwood and Thumptastic: What seats have you got with your 18 litre tank? The standard one or some other? Part number appreciated.

Thanks.

I have a 18 liter and a 12 liter tank. I just swap them out depending on what I'm doing.
The seat is the standerd KTM " Comfort seat" sorry I don't have the part # but I can get it. Doesn't make a huge difference if at all. I just needed a new seat cover and for Christmas my wife got the "Comfort seat" for me.
Here's with the 12 liter.

OK guys I'm back. Sorry for the dealy but I just got back from a week in St Lucia today, sand, sea, wine, beer, great food etc etc, as you can guess it was hell!!

CU
KTM Hardparts book claims 98db for the Akra.

This is what Sommer told me about their db eater.

"we tested our db eater with 92 db, that's ok for street. You don't loose HP
with it, but a bit torque in low and mid. The de-ater would cost 31,03 Euro."

I had intended to weigh all of the parts as I went along so that I would know exactly what the difference was but, as with so many things in life, once I had started I just couldn't stop myself and wanted to get it done!!


So, Alderney Eh? 2000 drunks clinging to a rock is what we call it!!

Creeper the seat cover needed a bit of trimming as the 950 seat is wider than the 640 so I had too much cloth in some places. This resulted in having to staple through the plastic rather than through the cloth band around the edge of the cover if you know what I mean, so I don't know how long it will last.

Dunno the part number - sorry, I just got my dealer to order one for me and he got the number off the 950m parts list.

KTM 640 Adventure Rider Checking In

Greetings one and all Adventurers,

I live in Phila, PA and ride my '02 640 Adventure wherever I can.

I took my '02 up from Phila to Newfoundland last year, through the Canadian Maritimes; Nova Scotia, Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, etc. and on home.

I got as far north as L'Anse aux Meadows, the 1,000 year old Viking settlement on Newfoundland. At this settlement, as I took the tour with helmet in hand, the Viking reenactors had seen my bike parked in town the previous night and all of them stopped pretending to be Vikings long enough to walk on over and talk to me about my motorcycle. My dual-sport armor looked convincingly more forbidding then their Viking garb...

Good luck to all of you out there (and in here) with Adventures.

Creep, your absolutely right. All the good riding is in the PNW. Montana is scary as we have Kamikazee deer and bears and things. Scariest of all, if you ride here, your bike WILL get dirty.

Check out my ride reports to see how bad it really is here. 1)Montana Road Trip 2)Ghost Towns and KTM's

Actually, I love Montana but I've only been thru on my way to someplace else... I saw your ride report earlier this morning...beautiful country dirtrider
Speaking of dirty, I'm getting ready to ride to an overnighter at Jo-momma beach state park in Puget Sound and it is raining like a cow pissin' on a flat rock! So, by Sunday evening, you may have the first ever anywhere pictures of my bike, and me... dirty!

Take er' easy,
Creep
