Well that's funny.

I'm buying that one, picking it up later this week.

I’m starting to prep my 2003 KTM 640 Adventure for the UTBDR in June, so I spent a little time in the garage this weekend. Changed the oil and filters… pretty routine…

Also decided to install some Pivot Pegz for the trip since I will wear my Gaerne SG10’s for this whole trip. Having the Pivot Pegz installed will make shifting in the stiff boots much easier…

In order to install them, you have to upgrade the left side footrest bracket because the old one has the peg fitting over the bracket rather than inside it. To upgrade, you just need to order KTM Part Number 58403038100 and purchase a pair of 10 mm x 65mm x 1.5 thread pitch stainless socket cap screws to replace the stock bolts on the old bracket. The stock bolts are actually only 60mm long, but the new bracket is a little thicker, so in order for the plastic locking nuts to actually thread all the way onto the bolt, you need 65mm ones. You could also use 70mm ones if they are easier to find. I opted to go with stainless to avoid corrosion. You also need to order the footrest pin that goes with the new bracket since it is a bit longer than the old one.

Here’s a shot of the actual box the part comes in…


Here’s a side sot of the bracket installed…


Here’s the left Pivot Pegz installed…


And the right…


Shot of the back side of the frame so you can see the nuts…


I also got a set of pannier liners for Christmas from my father-in-law, so I cleaned out the panniers and fitted them for the first time…

Here’s the 35L…


And the 41 L…


I can already tell that I am really going to like these!

I also ordered a new steel rear sprocket, a new countershaft sprocket and a new chain. I also decided to replace the wheel bearings while I am at it, so I ordered those too.

I’m really looking forward to this trip. About the only thing I have left to do is upgrade the hand guards. Think I may opt for the Highway Dirtbike Hand Guards… We will trailer out, spend 9 days riding in the area and then trailer home. Planning to camp most every night with a cabin stay thrown in there for good measure and to get the stink washed off...

Hope to take a ton of pictures and some video and put up a nice ride report upon returning...

Triplethreat-I did the same footpeg bracket installation on my '03 and the '07 640A in order to mount up a pair of Fastway foot pegs.

I hope you opted for the belt and suspenders mounting method for that bracket-especially the way it gets loaded while standing on the pegs- Those nylon insert nuts are going to loosen on you unless you applied an appropriate blue threadlocker to the bolts.

on the improvement though. Folks don't realize how nice it makes riding with a fat set of footpegs.

In case anyone didn't know, the factory KTM rally pegs will also fit once you have that left side bracket. They are huge and not too expensive.

Aren't they like $300? They're just really long, they don't add any width, if I remember right.

I did the foot peg mod, but I'm finding that the new aluminum peg holder has a lot of flex to it. Does anyone notice that? is it normal...

They are longer and just a bit wider. They are normally $150, but you can find them on sale here and there in the $120 area.

Thanks much for the post... I have a set of fastway pegs, and the LHS mounting bracket, which I hadn't any idea what it was for... The pegs are slightly used, and didn't come with any bolts, so i threw em on a shelf.. Now I'll mount em up.. Thanks

Hey what was involved in welding those radiator mounts back on? How much did you have to strip from the bike?
