640 orange body work

Hey all,

New on this thread, I'm very active in the 950sm chronicles thread.

I'm trying to match the 2006 640a paint to apply to my 950 SMR carbon fender and mask.

Do any of you have a spare fender or side panel you would care to get rid of or loan me? It need not be in new condition or even in one piece, so long as it has some decent orange paint on part of it.

Thanks
NattyMo

Electrical woes, fixed!

Luke helped get the deductive processes going and figured out the Touratech IMO 100R in the early 640A.
Specifically, there are the following connectors on the Touratech Tripmaster/IMO100R:
#1 -3pin (green-white-brown) ---> 3pin (green-white-brown) speedo pickup
#2 -3pin (blue-violet-grey) ---> (unused) circuitboard labels as tach pickup, unneeded with the analog type tach
#3 -2pin (red-black) ---> this was connected to KTMs "roadbook power", a 2pin(blue/yellow-brown); Touratechs modern any-bike IMO100R calls for 9-17vdc, I would think it to be near the same requirements
#4 -1pin (pink) ---> 1pin (pink) Tripmaster dimmer
#5 -1pin (yellow) ---> 1pin (yellow) Tripmaster dimmer

After that I went thru more ordeal finding the cause of my low (3.7vdc) issue on the blue/yellow&brown connections.
Long story short, it was the headlight disable connector! I had it unplugged to save the battery from the headlights, it does a whole lot more than just shut off power to the headlight, all non-essential power is shunted down to mid 3 volts! The only thing I found not effected was the ignition circuit! Hopefully my pain and suffering saves others! Please pass this info around!

Insomiac?

I wish I was, -5 celcius below freezing this morning here. Bike is having a winter break, mainly to save it's decrepit rider from hypothermia.
Good news, another mate has scored an '03 model Adventure, so another riding buddy who won't be stealing my fuel.

Stay warm and safe buddy.

I have been threatened with having to play supertanker, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe I should be sad?

640 LC4 Catalytic converter?

Hey gang,

I need some advice. I have a 2000 KTM LC4 640 in LA. Recently, the owner of my local shop (another KTM buff) suggested i allow him to replace what he called the catalytic converter on my exhaust pipe with an open section of pipe he had there in the shop. I thought, "cool! better performance, more open throttle, what could go wrong?" So I get it from him after the shop[ does the work and i immeduiately ride to vegas for a gig. not too fast, mind you, and I stop every hour and give the bike a break. The second day I'm here in Vegas, the piston completely blows. Got it to a great mech here and he says the shop that put on the pipe didn't jet the carb after replacing it, causing a lean fuel/air mix and killing the bike, basically. So now the shop is claiming the part they removed is actually a "pre-muffler" and that no tuning was neccesary and tyhat I shouldn't have ridden the bike all the way to Vegas - a paltry 270 miles...please help! I need some sage advice here. I'm truckimng it back to LA Monday and I have to confront these bozos at the shop and figure it all out. Any advice???

Thanks!

Any change to the exhaust, especially removing a restriction should cause someone familiar with tuning to at least look at how it is running and burning. But yes that was a pre-muffler, not a cat and there by they removed probably 1/4 of the original muffler system. From my experience that is more than enough to need to make carb adjustments if not jet and needle changes!

Question Bog/Stutter off idle - ideas?

Hey gents,

Some time ago, I drilled my slide and lowered the clip on the slide to the 4th notch to richen it up.

It's been some time since I've had a chance to thoroughly test the bike since these mods. I can't really recall what the bike ran like before though the backfire/popping on deceleration is gone now.

Problem is, I am noticing a significant stutter or bog right off of idle. It is noticeable enough that I have to feather the clutch/throttle and keep the RPMs up so the bike doesn't stall when taking off from a stop.

I've adjusted the fuel screw a number of times and it sometimes seems to make a slight improvement but the bog is still there.

Funny thing is that when the bike is cold there is no stutter/bog and it even seems to have a bit more punch. However, as soon it is thoroughly warmed up - bog city! I even have the idle set at 2K and it is still bogsters away when taking off from a stop.

Any suggestions? Should I set the slide back to the third notch?

Yes, put the clip back to the 3rd notch.

Sounds like you have made it too rich. One a cold engine it's acting like the choke and helping combustion. Warmed up it's adding too much fuel and stumbling. Another clue it's too rich is the absence of popping on decel; popping is a characteristic of leanness.

Drilling the slide shouldn't require a change to the needle clip (presumably that's what you meant when you said slide clip). The slide will open faster which lifts the needle anyway.

The 640 LC4 Adventure is a true go-anywhere bike, but everything has its limits. From a recent excursion to Russia, no option but to turn back and look for an alternate route:
