Front fenders??

Will a newer low fender fit an old-er 02 model?

Like in this case, a 950 fender cobbled onto a 525 front end-no problem. As for my stock 640 fender, I sold it for $50, but I haven't seen the check yet

Thanks Cody

Look here.


Thanks.

I've got 990 black one that I began making some brackets but was wondering if a true bolt-on was possible other than the 660 cf rallye... which btw I have one for sale. /spam

I guess I'll continue withthe 990.

You guys have just confused me now with these screens i'm only 5 foot 5 inchs high do you think one of the hyde screens would get the air over my helmet,
i don't mind the look of these units at the moment i seem to get a lot of buffeting on my zeus helment peak,
by the way i ride a 640 adventure.

Cheers Phil

I am 6"6", so I stick up a bit further than most.

A true bolt on is possible if you buy the brackets from MecaSystem. Charlie Rauseo form RallyPanAm is a dealer in the US who can get them for you.

Kartman recently installed a 660 SMC engine - which I think it quite similar in some aspects - into a pre-2000 Adventure. He has his own build thread on here.

mxchamp,
I'm curious, if you are heading for some rough single track, would you take the LC4 or the X Challenge?

If you had to pick one for the TAT, which one?

Not trying to stir the pot or anything..

That's my bud's 2000 he just bought as well. We had fun walking around the bikes looking at the differences between them. Good stuff.

Welcome back to the KTM fold , tastes good don't it?
I'm looking for a 640 ADV as we speak. Doing part of the TAT this year and figure that suits me best.

Good to know. Thanks.

2" Suspension Lowering Spacers

I had my suspension put back to stock. If anyone is planning to lower their 640, they can have my spacers. They lower the bike 2"
