Damn, that's some riding gunnerbuck! Just curious if you've had to do any engine work?

On the Adventure a complete top end rebuild at 40,000... Valve jobs at 40,000, 80,000 and another slated for this winter along with a piston ring refresh.... I bought the bike new in 04 so that gives me a 20,000 KM per year average...

The 640 E was purchased recently by a friend... He's the third owner...

That is great work Gunnerbuck!! That's the most kms I've read of and the bike looks beautiful..

How were your valves at 40k? Some replace them, mine were ok so I'm going to save and get a valve when I can over time and replace them at 50k.. That is if I get it running soon anyway.

Another question if I may, have you replaced your cam chain and if so at how many kms?

Cheers!

Bullsh*t............

He attaches a drill to the front wheel and lets it spin for days to get that kind of mileage....

Cam chain is the original and will be replaced along with the camshaft during my winter service.... My auto decomp cam is finally on its way out...

Valves at 40k km for the first service required 2 new intake valves + 2 new exhaust guides along with the seals and regrind...

At the second 80k km+ service it required complete replacement of all valves and guides + seals and regrind....

Thanks! Mine had only 28k on it before rebuild but I only replaced what was damaged and the valves were fine(I hope).. I'll do them down the track.. Glad to hear your cam chain has lasted 120k wow.. Mechanics recommended I get a new cam chain but I couldn't see any signs of wear at all and from what I've read there haven't been many cases of them giving up.. So I might get my moneys worth out of it too..

Gunner do u think using 10w40 oil could have possibly been a cause of bearing failure? The wrong viscosity.. I didn't know about oils when I got my bike and took the wrong advice.. I do kno now that I will run the correct 10w50 fully synthetic stuff from now on.

Cheers

I ran Maxxima 5w/40 synthetic for the first 40,000 KM until the top end failure...

Since then I've been running Rotella 5w/40 synthetic and have been very happy with the results.... I noticed right off that the shifting was way smoother as was the engine... It's good stuff in my books, the next oil change will finish off my 2nd- 20 liter pail ...

Pegs?

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong thread.

Does anybody have info on WIDER (front to back) foot pegs for a 07 640a? There is some talk in the index but it's for earlier model bikes. I just spent two weeks covering 3008 miles, most of it on the pegs and my arches were protesting! I like the look of the Fastway F series but they don't list the 640 as a fit. Mainly looking for "bolt on" options as I'm lacking metal working tools.

Thanks for helping (again )

What boots are you wearing? You can get the weld on variety.

Thanks B-Rod,
I wear SIDI mx boots with Superfeet insoles. The insloes may be worn out but to find out I'd have to stick my hand in the boot, risky business! I'll check out the weld on widners, thanks. Just need to make sure that wider is front to back and not center line of bike and out. Wider or longer, always the question

these plugs for what ? (from L to R)

4 pin tach
2 pin ? - Y/Bstripe & Br
4 pin ? Y/Bstripe - Br - Gr/R - Y with blk sheaving
& above 2 pin ? Y&Bstripe/Br
dash/speedo etc

Man i thought mine was messed up when i got it. Its a lot of fun to untangle. I took it all out and started over. Its usally more to to repatch it all togehter. I got a set of good weather tight connectors and made new stuff. Still have some todo but it runs now :). I removed all sorts of stuff the did nothing and connections just looking to leave me on the trail.

A little time a VM and you should have it all set.
