Be careful removing the lower cap (lower clips); had to break off one of its retaining clip openings to remove mine the first time.

...much faster, these days; thank God for electrical tape!

I finally got to the wiring in the dash. I added a fuse block and going to add this

for power to my accessories on the dash, GPSr, phone or whatever. As most handheld items these days charge on 5v and .5(500mA)Amps of power and most also have USB charging available this is an ideal way to go via the old method of having individual cig power adapters for each device.

While I was in there I finally put my repaired IMO back in and now I cant find my notes on what hooks to what. I am left with a 3pin(blue-violet-grey) and a 2pin(red-black). If my memory serves me the 3pin is unused and is for tachometer. And the 2pin connects to one of the roadbook connectors(blue/yellow-brown). I can't find the IMO in the wiring diagram, why is that?!
Can anyone confirm this?

well I've been saving up for all my 640 parts for over 4 months now after my motor was a dud. I thought I finally have them all and was going to build the engine this week or next week.. I opened the box and took apart the "engine cases complete with bearings" and was delighted to discover the bastards don't give you the f'ing main crank bearings.. I am super pissed off.. Why clearly state that the cases come complete and then leave out the most important bearings from the cases.. Good thing is they sent me the wrong cylinder which happens to be the right cylinder for the wrong piston I was sent.. bunch of dumb asses! I am sad that this is the way it's turned out for my 640.. I have spent so many hours, blood sweat and tears. I've literally sacrificing having a life to afford the thing and it has been a nightmare.. What to do...

you can source those bearings out of a supplier cheaper than oem and the same bearing...

Hi ADV crew - now Wrk2Surf has been helping out but im still confused as to what hose goes where - I have a '98 ADV LC4 and cant figure out the fuel line routing..? I have 3 taps on the tank two main taps (one each side, and im thinking one has two outputs) and one reserve..

local reputable bearing supplier, nj 207 = 112AU$ + 50$ postage and 1 to 2 weeks wait for it from singapore. nj 306 = 92AU$ and in stock. Damn! Well I won't be going local unfortunately. Back to US where I can get both of the crank bearings, shims needed and a freewheel bearing I forgot to get for 200$Au delivered. 5 months ive waited will be atleast another 2 or 3 weeks.

Also, while trouble shooting the grip heaters, I found that I only have 3.5 volts at both of the roadbook connectors. Is this normal? I would think it would be at least 12 volts if not the 13.5 volts at the battery and elsewhere on the bike. I should clarify, I am only using the roadbook power to turn the coil of the relay on, this way they are only on when the bike is running. The gripheaters will be drawing their current directly from the battery via my added fuseblock.

hey, sorry if this has been asked but does anyone have a link to KTM for the 2007 640 owners manual? there are links for all bikes still in production and for previous years but since the 640 adv is gone there is no easy path.

thx

Hmmm, so it's not adjustable on the '02s? Well that's a drag, Tim.
Yes it is adjustable on the 02, I missed in in the manual too because the wording is a bit misleading (no I'm not that thick). RTFM closely. (read the f'ing manual)
you hold both buttons down together with the ignition on for about 5 secs til the display starts flashing then press the mode & other button to change. I thought the bike felt slower than indicated and when I went on a GPS ride it proved it. The GPS and other enduro computers verified it was right on with the stock tires and set to 19". A taller knobby may need to be changed back to 21" or it may be too slow. But, at least the mileage on the odometer will be 7% less too ! I used to brag I had a 180kph offroad bike, now i can only say its 170kph, but its accurate !

Not sure if this is the same for your early model, but the newer ones have two inboard-facing mini thumb-wheel taps which are joined directly by a length of hose. These taps are always open except when removing the tank from the bike. Then on the left-lower lobe is a normal on-off-reserve tap, with one output which goes to the fuel pump input.

Looking at the part 'fiche wrk2surf quoted here, it looks like the two inboard taps (#3, only one shown?) are connected to the fuel pump input via a T and fuel filter (#19), and if you have a fourth connection on the fuel pump, then maybe that connects to the main fuel tap #46. A much more complicated arrangement than they use now.

But I'm just guessing here...
