This aint no biggie. My 01 640adv isnt leaking. But I just did one on my 09 CRF450r. Pulled it from the outside. It did have a collar that when removed gave more room to hook the seal. It took all of 15 min. Definitely easier than a topend job.
Hey thanks for that. Im definitely leaking around the shift shaft, not the kick start shaft... it seems (from what I can read on the links that I was given) that the #9 O-ring is easier to replace...

The next couple days will tell. Ill post a follow up when I get into it...

thanks for the help and comments.
this is a great forum and resource.

Hi Mike , from what i have seen from my old 640 E to the 640 A thay are the same . The other way would be to make one(copy from the one on the bike ) out of solid steel bar with gusets and build it to what you need .

Many manufacturers for both types. Usually, you don't want to use gasoline or any other harsh solvent for cleaning. You should use tried and tested products. The air filters for KTMs are made by Twin Air, and I've been using their Bio system with no problems so far. However, they say that you should start using the Bio system on only a fresh, new filter, not one that has been previously oiled and washed with some other system.

Here's one manufacturer's (TwinAir) instructions for their Bio system: Click!

And here for their traditional system: Click!

Also, a video tutorial for the bio system: Click!

Tseta,
Well you know me...not always by the book.
I have many times pulled the fuel line off the tank and turned the tap on to soak the air filter, then squeezed it dry, rinsed again and again, three times usually does it.

Next I let the filter dry in the sun and then oil it with engine oil lightly and reinstall. I like the grease seal and always wipe the airbox clean.

Then it's down the road from the middle of nowhere to the middle of nowhere.

Improves my mileage around 5mpg usually.

When mpg drops I know the filter is dirty.

I took a look last night and couldn't follow it. It went into a loom and I never found where it came out. Also, when I look at the wiring diagrams I can never find anything that matches my wiring colors.

Just bought a 2001 KTM 640e. It has the Magura HYMEC (aka Magura Jack, but the old one) system for the clutch cable. However, it felt like it was adjusted wrong, so I started taking everything apart to diagnose it. I've never had a hydraulic clutch like this. I was going to reverse bleed it with a syringe, but I could not find a bleeder valve anywhere.

Long story short, I got air in the lines. Now the lever is completely soft. I found out that the arm was just adjusted wrong, and I didn't even have to bleed it in the first place stupid me.

How can I get the air out of the system? I have literally been searching for the past hour and a half, and searching google as well.

It looks like where the bleeder valve is supposed to be, there is just an allen bolt that has no bleeder on it, where you would attach the hose to. That allen bolt has the hole drilled through the side of it of course. If I need to take pictures, I can. If I need to buy a new banjo bolt with a bleeder on it, does anyone know where I can get one from? The bike is just sitting in my garage now, begging to be ridden.

Thanks for your help.

Hello,

below (hopefully) is a photo of my bike, a 2006 640 Adventure.
Does anyone happen to know the standard bearing no. for the inlet cam lobe follower bearing? I've had a wee failure at ~47,000km in Dushanbe (where there is no KTM dealer) and am hoping to find a bearing locally.
Cheers
Wayne

I've spent some time trying to figure out possible alternative bearings for this application. Unfortunately, it seems that it is only available through KTM.

Hope everything works out for you.

Thanks Tseta and Nokmuay, the quick replies are appreciated.
I might have to try to get onto a KTM dealer in Europe after the weekend.

Cheers again.

Sorry I called out of town on a very last minute call, and got the joy of riding in the cold rain without bringing the rain gear, since it called for 5 days of 0% chance of rain. Man, meterologists are just really bad at thier jobs lol.

I saw the guy had answered your question so I figured it was all good. My manual didnt show a bearing # either. Hope things have worked for you.

Hope things are all good now!!!

Rebuilding my KTM 640 adventure lc4

http://mobenmotorcycles.blogspot.com...nture-lc4.html

Hello to all, here a link from a non-profesional restauration from a 01 KTM adventure from Spain, I have to say, that this is not a profesional restauration, just done, with the tools we have in ur house, and due to the hard use is this bike used, not spending a lot of money in the process...

Any new idea is wellcome, the next idea is keep working in the electrical instalation and in the dash board...

Thanks a lot.
Dani.
