Tah dah! Newest member to the high fender club. I also rebuilt the water pump, and replaced both cam followers, all prompted by the tiniest of leaks on the exhaust rocker shaft. Yes, I realize it could have easily been accomplished by just sliding the shaft out far enough to replace the O-ring, but my mileage coincides with possible bearing failure. Proactive repair, as I am looking at winter fast approaching. That said, I missed a few good days of riding this past weekend.

edit: thought I would list the parts list. It is floating around here, but here it is again.

Well, the short story, it's a '59 bought off the original owner, has 30,000 original miles, original 36 hp engine, and is sold and going to the UK. It was used by a local electric company, until they replaced it with a Ford Econoline in the 60's. We think it was taken off the road because of a broken rear wheel cylinder. It belongs to my friend right now, but he is in the process of getting it gone, which is proving to be a hassle. Very nice, if you are into powered tin sheds.

True. I could have gone with the one that is offer as part of the Touratech kit, but I think it looks too much like a droopy old man cock I didn't need the reminder.

They are the same except for colour. Yours looks so much better with that on. I've never like the proboscis that came on the silver bikes. . . . sorry Gunnerbuck.

People love these old VW's over here in Europe and they sell them at a relatively high price!

B-Rod, good job! the fender looks just fantastic.
4 years ago, the classic KTM's high fender was all we had down here, and as you know does not go forefront enough. So I feel happy when I could get the next model, more aggressive, which I have since 3 years ago.
But yours goes even far! Nice!

I see you have an '06. I found a picture of your bike, and sure enough, someone has removed one rotor. '04-'07 640's came with dual discs, but many feel it is too much brake, and too much weight, so they lose one. Single disc is fine, provided the process involved swapping the master with one from a 950 SE (also single disc) or and EXC. If it works good, I wouldn't worry about it.

I haven't been farther that the car wash with it. It's -4º C, so today isn't looking good either. I imagine it will be good, due to it's shape and the flutes in the back. It's pretty stiff too.

I'm running a 2008-2010 KTM Supermoto fender, P/N 77308210000, on mine which looks very similar to B-Rod's fender (slotted rear, similar profile and shape, etc.). What little interstate I've done with my '06 640Adv running a high fender seems fine (I try to avoid the highways since they're boring). I've run the bike up to 85mph for some decent stretches and haven't noticed any front end or steering effects because of the fender and the fender looks as straight as it does at 20mph.
