Thanks, can you tell me what was updated with the clutch in 04?

Also seems to me the general consensus is that the twin discs are more weight than their worth?
Seems very few people actually run them. Any real benefit to having it?

Just wanted to share a recent shot of my 640 Adv on a trip through the Brecon Beacons in early April:

Wierd? Can you help?

I pulled my dash and fairing off to freshing up the paint. I put all back together. And the blinkers all fire at once now. Think hazard lights. It has a Honda flasher relay on it. Could this have went bad?

The '05 and up also got an additional oil jet that squirts at the underside of the piston.

Not sure sorry, it was just something I remember reading in the brochure. The pre 04 clutch is quite a beefy unit anyway, mine has taken a lot of abuse & was still in perfect condition at 100 000km. I haven't heard of many other people having clutch issues with 640's before or after 04 apart from some leaky master cylinders & worn slave cylinders on higher miles bikes.

Cheers
Clint

Hi, mate has just bought a 07 adv, in his wisdom he decided to pull bike down and give a good clean and fix oil leaks.
Now the problems start, there is no power to any of the instruments. Bike will not start due to waiting for sealant to harden on rocker cover.
Battery has 12.3 V, it seems to be an earth related problem.
We have cleaned earth which attaches to frame from the battery.
Is there any other earths around wiring loom.
We have used wire from fan to earth on battery and existing positive wire and the fan works.(example)
I haven't been able to find thread on this type of problem, any help appreciated.
Cheers

Yes, there's one on the right under the side cover that screws onto the frame, it's a brown wire if I remember correctly, sorry not at home to send you a pic
