You don't need to spin them all the way around. Just put the cables behind the mirror stem.

If it looks like this then yes it does fit... They are loud but I did some modifications that worked well to quiet it down:http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...=732362&page=3

Hi Gang-

New 640A owner here in Phx area. Thrilled with the new purchase from Feb and have been having a blast getting to know the bike. It's on 06 w/ about 13k miles on it, but the previous owner maintained this thing to the T! Its got a full service history with meticulous records and the whole bit. It had a 38T on the rear and did a lot of highway miles, so it's been transformed to handle my riding style w/ a 47T rear, knobbies, etc.

After a few shakedown rides getting used to the feel, I finally ran it hard in the dirt last weekend for about 75 miles and had an absolute blast. I'm getting used to the Scotts stabilizer and learning how to use it...it really does make a difference! I've owned XRs and DRs and a KLR...the 640 is THE way to go!! It really is balanced and weighted beautifully.


I've got a few questions:

1. Is the Chris dude in the UK still making the tank guards? I emailed his yahoo acct and never heard back. I need guards...I will spill eventually and don't want massive scrapes or a puncture from a big rock. I've ruled out the Hepco guards, but not entirely.

2. I have what I believe is the stock exhaust muffler/pipe. I believe its a S-trap ISD2 and appears to be in really good shape. I'm looking to possibly unload that and fund a new tank bag. What's a reasonable price for a used one in great shape?

3. I have the KTM sxc competition exhaust and its a bit quiet for my preference. Would going with a whole new pipe (Leo Vince etc) be my best bet to gain db? I don't like cruising silently in someone's blind spot. I prefer to be heard.

4. Why is the GD'd chain so tricky to get just right? Mine is either too tight or smacking the forward most chair guard bolt under heavy load & chain sag. If I adjust per the manual and create no gap betwen the swing arm bottom and chain, it is a hair on the loose side. I've been futzing w/ it since I bought it. Thank goodness for the center stand.


I think that's it. I'm super happy with the bike and look forward to enjoying it.

Cheers-

Anyone know of a source for the blue front fender of the 1999/2000 US models, or something close enough in color that would fit and not look ridiculous? It seems like there are no more from KTM, and I haven't found anything aftermarket either.
Similarly, I have heard from long ago that 2001 - 2007 rear plastic would fit on the '99/'00 models (being an all or none deal). Has anyone ever actually done this? My original plastic is still okay, but it's a bit faded and won't last forever for sure.

DustyDude, welcome to the brotherhood...
I can only try to help you with this item (since I have the stock exhaust and I know nothing about that issue ):

4. I also have been fooling around with the chain tension when I bought my bike. I didn't like how it makes me feel it's loose, following the User's Manual procedure, but... some of the masters here told me the slapping is unavoidable and "better loose than tight" in order to preserve the countershaft health... Sooo... I hate that slapping, but apparently there is no way to avoid it, other than a soundless dualsport helmet and a good offroad ride
Yes, no good news, but the rest of the bike is just great...

Which fender are you after and what do you refer to as a fender, front screen? (Pic link?)

Ive got one of these tanks and seat in the garage - apparently fits the 640adv, but ive never tried. Ive got a 250exc-e for the dirt stuff so dont feel the need. Let me know if its of interest and I'll look at selling...
Cheers

I was lucky my mate did the work then I bought it.
