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.

Bad luck for You — I have only too late realised that there are some Polish motorcyclists around with an KTM LC4 640 - they run in to almost the same problem. They have organized transport of the part in question via air with the help of some Polish climbers heading into mountains of Kazakhstan or else. Perhaps that would be some way for You (if You havn’t found any way yet).
Or You could also try to contact them via their facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/JedwabnySzlak2011 (don’t worry they do speak English :)
Cheers!

Good morning,

I want to replace the hoses and fuel lines on my 07 640A. What do y'all recommend? Stock or aftermarket? Got a favorite Internet retailer? (I searched e-bay, didn't find much) Let me know what you think.

Many people have been successfully using the Chinese ASI silicone hose kits, available through E-bay.

For fuel lines, I think that since the bike is not fuel injected, it's not so fussy. Any good quality fuel line should be good. I've heard that there in the US, you can get the OEM-style, braid-shielded hose through Volkswagen dealers.

Cheers,

Tseta

Moderators,
Please end this thread.
It is important that technical questions for the KTM 640 are asked in a manner that is shared and searchable.

This is the "sign in" thread, not really a tech thread to begin with anyways.

I would have to agree with Laromonster. This is just a hang out for KTM640 riders, and though it is definitely used for tech talk, it is not limited to that. I do see your point about searching info though, and maybe a request for a tech talk section might be a good idea. Maybe say TECH TALK KTM... etc for each manufacturer would work, and then just put in the thread the model and then the issue. Somewhat more searchable if everyone follows a format like that! I dunno, just a thought!

I think Bill might have meant to post that in the ktm 640 index thread- that thread has become the default thread for all technical questions, and the people asking the questions seem to not see the first page, where most of the questions are answered.

Thanks Tseta,
I read of these in the "Index" but when I searched for them on e-bay (on my phone, no computer at work) I only found them listed for Honda's. I thought maybe the index had outdated info and asked here because this seams to be the "water cooler" for the LC4. After reading your reply (thanks again) I searched e-bay from my home computer and found the hoses listed, ordered them and I'm looking forward to riding again sooner thanks to this thread.

Bill,
I completely understand your statement and agree (although I think it should be left open for responsible users). Lately I've been using this thread too much as a question and answer area and not for it's intended purpose (you do get more replies posting here than by starting a new thread) and I apologize for my misuse. I would suggest that we start a LC4 Q&A thread, post it prominently in the index and all subscribe to it to help each other out.

I'll try to be better,
Gerst



I already checked in but this is more in line with the theme of this thread (I think). The mighty 640 playing single track rescue vehicle.

I have been running the ASI hoses for over a year now, with no issues! I did however end up with an incomplete kit, actually had extra hoses! I contacted the seller on Ebay and got an immediate response and received the missing hoses in a short time at no charge!

Laromonster,
If a 640 rider has a technical problem the idea of the forum is to start a new thread.
It spreads the word to all of us.

That's how it has always been done in the past and that model has been successful for all of us.

Reading through 446 pages of this thread to find out about silicone hoses(for example) is impossible.

The Thumper forum has so many different groups of users its hard to find posts related to the 640.

The Orange Crush forum provides a nice place for 9xx owners to build threads, discuss, relate, solve problems. This doesn't exist for 640 owners.

The LC4 link thread is where I look for answers and it shouldn't be filled with problem solving discussion.

I subscribe to this thread as the place to catch what is going on with the 640 Adventure. Every morning I get an email with all the discussion going on with 640 owners and I can choose to follow the link to Advrider.

We need a thread that 640Adv owners can subscribe to, and ask for help and give help.

Edit: I looked through the LC4 index thread. I usually look at the list of solutions links at the front. I looked through the whole thread and there is lots of problem solving. I'll subscribe there.

Guys,
I thought this thread was to introduce KTM 640 owners to other owners.
If I want to chat I send a PM.

Maybe I misunderstand how things are supposed to work. I thought if we had a technical problems or questions I/we were supposed to start a new thread, not pile on this one.

For example I am presently experiencing a cooling problem...so I started a new thread asking for ideas and suggestions about what could be wrong.

If that's not how it works just let me know and I will post my tech questions here.
bill
