Hello! Are 140/80-18 and 90/90-21 the correct size Michelin deserts for a 640 Adventure?

I would suggest not using the Desert front if you have to spend much time on pavement, it will be squirrelly on the 640

I am looking at an '07 KTM 640 Adventure. Bike is a basic stocker with 18K on the clock and has been used mostly as a commuter. Bike looks immulate with a firm price of $5900.

Hey you hosers...

Seeing my bike is now about 10 years old I figured a new hose kit is in order.

Knowing my buddy just started carrying these I asked him if he could get a kit for the big single as he's pretty much a big twin guy. He said yes and this is what showed up last week.



CJDesigns is now carrying Samco Hose kits and will gladly supply us thumper folk.

Beautiful hoses with speciall non-perforated radiused edged clamps too.

http://www.cjdesignsllc.com/

I throw a pic up after the install.

Happy butt!

I finally got rid of the Austrian torture device and got a new SeatConcepts seat!

Can you guys help me out with tire pressure ranges for Michelin Desert tires... What are the ranges for different terrain?
Ideal street
Minimum street
Ideal soft desert sand
Compromise driving at 60mph for 30miles on asphalt before going into the desert.

I am 150lb w/o gear if it makes a difference.... 02 Adventure.

Thx!!!

I'd be interested in that seat. was going to invest in a renazco.
The original is comfy but too wide. Being only 5ft 6 I could do with something a bit narrower. Its like sitting on a shire horse
