Here's a picture of my 2002.

Having trouble deciding on panniers though. Anyone tried the Wolfman Rolie system on their adventure?

The Touratech Zegas are wide unless you modify the racks and lose the OEM muff. What racks are those on the machine?

I have the exact same racks, pretty sure they are Touratech. I have Wolfman Ranier soft panniers and really like them. I don't take mine on/off every day.

here they are with the Wolfman D-ring mounts on them, ready to go.


can see bags mounted here, only removed the duffel bag daily. The yellow bags are the old-style Wolfman expedition bags.

I don't, but I have been looking at them. It would be great to hear some other people's experience with Rolies or similar bags on their 640's, pros and cons, etc.

As you know, the Rolie's come in 3 sizes: 4.5, 8.5 and 12.5 L. I bought a small Sealline waistpack (4L) from MEC yesterday for 32$ so have an appreciation for the sizing. Rolie's seem to have great versatility: panniers, tail bag, tank bag etc so long as you have the mounting straps. Pretty smart design to allow people to mix and match if you ask me! Just a bit too small to become my primary travel saddlebags.

I have SW Moto racks with Pelican 1500s on each side (19x2L) and a 1450 (14.5L) on top (came with bike). I keep an eye on the 1/4 turn fasteners and sometimes have to tighten them - nothing major. I have locks built into the system. My Akro muffler touches the rack (the previous owned mounted some rubber on that spot and no probs in the 4 years I've used them.)

I have a Wolfman Expedition Lite tank bag (for my KTM), tool roll and Enduro fender kit (for my dirt bikes) and really like the quality, function and fit; presume the other equipment is similar. Wolfman gear seems to be pretty good kit!

I have a 2nd hand Giant Loop Coyote as well, test-mounted but not yet tried. GL Coyote also seems solid but don't know if I will like the big open space of the Coyote, part of the reason I may look to a different setup. I hope to test it this season.

I want to buy a duffel / dry bag for the top myself, and am looking at soft waterproof panniers, so have been reading up on this topic. The Pelicans work great - I might just keep them - but lots of recommendations for soft bags to help save ones legs in case of a spill.

I am also looking at the Wolfman Enduro E12 for use on a couple of my bikes, the Expedition Sidebags and/or waterproof duffels for next year. I liked the GL Siskiyou Panniers, but big $. I looked at Ortlieb, but they don't seem to have external compression straps like the Expeditions. MEC and REI have some dry bag options in their water sports department too... Lots of Velcro, webbing strap availability out there.

I guess it comes down to you own situation re: priorities. Type of trip (on or off-road, difficulty of trail, riding ability), size (external dimensions, internal storage space), abrasion resistantcy, waterproofness, usability (ease of operation, compression straps, on/off, etc.) and cost (do you already have a rack, is it compatible?)

Appreciate others experience with bags on their 640's. I have been searching and reading other threads on this subject...

Cheers,

Dean

I want to put a shorty clutch lever on my 06 Adventure. What other KTM models lever would fit my 640? I thought the 05 525 EXC would fit...

Thoughts?

Any SX/EXC from those model years will fit. At least it did to my 07...

I would also like to add shorty levers to my 1200RT, but that is another story.

My buddy has the Midwest clutch lever on his 350XC-F... VERY NICE!

I bought a Moose shorty lever for a 525 EXC for Dennis Kirk.. It works!

Looking at a Used LC4

I've looked around a bit, and is this still the best thread for what to check when you're looking at a used LC4? It was originally based on an '02; anything you'd change for an '06?

Thanks/cheers

Here's my 03 Adventure, as of today/yesterday.



Just put the Leo Vince exhaust on her yesterday. Sounds purdy.






It's been rejetted, Rally Raid Engineering carbon fiber/kevlar tank guards, KTM racing airbox cover, and.... that's about it, right now. Folding mirrors are on the list, along with pannier racks, some aux lighting, and maybe some other farkles. Running Rotella 5w/40 full synth as of last oil change. Currently at about... 5500 miles or so.
