Rallye side tank

Now stop all the Bitching boys . I am not sure how much the tank holds as i have never filled it up , it is possably 8 to 10 litres. The tank came with the bike when i bought it , as you can see in the pic of one fitted it dosen't fit up to the seat and has a 20mm / 3/4 " gap.
It wouldn't fit if you have a muffler on that side , you would have to drop the exhaust down and under the bike like the Rallye .

Well, well, well....

Those are not supposed to look like that, now are they? Despite "heavy" reinforcements, the subframe has cracked.

The deep gouge is on inside of the swingarm and is quite a mystery. It cannot have come from the inner fender or the tire. My theory is that a large rock has gotten lodged in the knobs and it has then made a few rounds. Not pretty.

The joys of LC4 ownership.

Somebody here on AdvRider said something to the style of "Ural miles are kind of like dog years." As a corollary, I could claim that miles spent traveling on Russian roads are kind of like dog years as well.

Cheers,

Tseta

miles after reserve to empty?




I ran out of gas. Lucky for me I was 1/4 mile from my shop.

I coughed it to reserve within a mile of the light going on, then about 18 miles later it done died.

Normal?



btw the 640 runs on coffee. well at least the gas that went in looked like coffee.

Sub frame crack

Tseta , when the sub frame is braced to stop the cracking it has to be plated on the down leg as well to stop this type of cracks .You can also remove the tool box frame and plate from one end to the other the same as the muffler side .
The inside of the swing arm , it gould be the wheel out of alignment and over to one side more than the other .Or is it back futher to the sprocket or disc rubbing ?????????????

The gouge on the swingarm is on the brake disk side. The rim, tire or the disk show no signs of wear that could be attributed to causing the gouge. All the relevant spacers are in place etc. The location of the gouge, relative to the tire/disk supports the theory that something (a larger rock?) got lodged in between the knobs of the tire.

Greetings from South Africa! Been lurking for quite a while now. Here is my 2002 640. I've had it for a couple of months now. What an amazing bike! Will be personalising it some more as time goes on. So far I've only done the front fender.

Gave it a big wash after returning from a trip. It's probably the cleanest it's been since I got it

The trick, and how it's done...



I had the swingarm TIG-welded at a local shop.



I filed down the welds a touch. Good as new?

---

Then, the subframe...



Started off by separating the cracked pieces and stripping the paint off of them.



An appropriately sized solid insert was then fabricated for the frame tube.



Holes were drilled in the frame pieces and the assembly was aligned for welding.



Plug/spot welds through the holes hold the assembly together while the insert ensures proper alignment and increases the strength.



The cracked area was "opened" with an angle grinder and welded up.



As a final touch, an additional gusset was added and the welds were ground down a bit. Ready for painting and reassembly.

...

Easy as 1 - 2 - 3, huh?



Cheers, Tseta
