I just got an 06 Adventure today. The bike has scratches on each side of the tank, typical spot on the edge of tank. Any tips to hiding the road rash?

I see pictures of the carbon fiber guards, who makes them?

Are tank guards like the ones used on the 950 Adventure available? Where can I get them?

Any other tips for new owner?

Single,
I had the local upholstery shop add leather to the corners of my tank.
It has held up well and was glued into place.

Check the pinned threads for 640 advice.

With the BST40, for altitude just run stock jetting.
It was set up to run properly in the Alps.

Oil Filter

Anyone used the PC Racing FLO PCS1 spin-on oil filter?
Specifically, I'm wondering if that's the correct one for a 640 Adventure. There is some confusing information about what exactly it fits, as in, fits a Duke 640 and a 990 Super Duke - huh?. My 950 is the same basic engine layout as the 990, and there is no spin-on oil filter of any kind.

I actually have been using a scotts stainless spin-on for many years, and it works great, but is very difficult to get off (no nut), and more difficult than it needs to be to take apart. The PCS1 looks easier on both counts, if it's the right one.

Sight glass part number

My 2002 KTM 640 sight glass is spraying out oil. I can't find the part number for the sight glass on any of the online part finders?

This is what I come up with for the stator side cover..
58430095100

Unless you've got a site glass on the left side of the motor, then you've got a clutch cover from a newer bike.

Still checking out my new to me 06 Adventure... It looks like I have a small oil leak right above exhaust/head area. I have not pulled the tank yet to check it out. Is this a common leak area? Rocker arm cover? Possible other leak areas?

An easy fix. The exhaust stud on the left side of the head is threaded all the way into the wet part. Pull that stud and apply some 5770 Loctite thread sealant on the threads and reinsert. Presto chango-the fix is done.

The other place is at the counter sprocket-an easy fix, the other two places are on the rocker arm shafts as they exit the head above the spark plug.

Counter Shaft-replace the O-ring and pick up a few more as spares for the clutch slave.

The easy way to address the rocker arm shaft seep is to run a bead of an oxime cure (sensor safe...important it says this on the tube) RTV on the end of the shafts. The more in-depth and correct fix is to replace the O-Rings.

Vibration

I have the first year 640 (Actually a 620) and on long rides, my hands REALLY buzz when first off the bike. I have anti vib mounted in the bars, but I seem to remember a post sometime ago on foam rallye grips? Does anyone know anything abut these and where I might find them? Thanks!

Ken

So, has anyone successfully replaced the shift shaft seal without splitting the cases? Mine's got a slow drip. I've clean and then replaced the v-seal that rides against the shift lever and cleaned the area behind it as well as possible with silicon spray.

On my bike it looks to me like the seal is cocked in the bore and that a suitably small puller could reach in there and grab it out.
