Hey, Dave...
Let me tell you that if no inmate has answered your call yet, it's only because of one of the following reasons:
(a) those ones who have read the thread after yesterday, haven't change clocks.
(b) those ones who have changed clocks, haven't read the thread after yesterday.
(c) same thing applies for those ones who know who did change clocks.
That's for sure, mate... I have a good idea of who are our inmates when somebody needs help

But don't take my word... you'll see...

Agent Orange is finally built!!

After selling a 640 Adventure last February, I was searching for another one. Well I finally found a 2005 with only 900km's on it and set up close to how I wanted it.
The PO got rid of the Adventure fairing and put on an Enduro headlight which is much more suited to how I want to use the bike.
I installed Highway Dirt Bike handguards/mirrors, a ProMoto Billet rack, Fandango tank bag, Garmin 62 GPS but still have the right front brake disc to remove as I also have a pair of Rad wheels set up with knobbies and a single disc!






Cheers

Clocks?

Do you mean instruments as in speedo and tach.

The Clocks word in American english means a clock on the wall to tell time...

My humble suggestion is that your english is not being understood?

That will cause the problems

I've considered it as well, but i am leaning towards a nonfactory look with a TrailTech Vapor. Partly due to cost, but also adding temp guage and other options!

Exhaust?

I'm looking to replace my stock exhaust with either a Leo Vince X3 or a FMF Q-4. Can anyone comment on a comparison between the two?

Wheres Waldo??

OK Kool-Aid drinkers, current DL1000 owner here (stop throwing things at me) looking for a 640 adventure to put in the stable for more dirt oriented trips. Is there some great keeper of 640 Adventures who hides them from all the world? Do I need to traverse down a yellow brick road to some magical land? I have Googled, Bing'd, Yahoo'd and I'm about to Yelp if I can't find this damn bike!!! Any help would be awesome guys, I need to get muddy.

You must make a sacrifice...To all that is Orange...forsaking all others...walk on hot broken glass...swear an aliegence ...learn the secret handshake...

I got lucky and mine was on CraigsList as just a "KTM For Sale $1000", it needed lots of work and some parts, but now it is a keeper, and one of the family.

3 minutes of looking. They may be crap ads, but they are current.
