This one has these clamps on the spokes. Did they later end up recalling the complete rim on the 2000?[/IMG]
I'm sure this is in the "Mighty Index Thread", but directly from the Fed's recall site comes the following:

Report Receipt Date: MAR 30, 2006
NHTSA Campaign Number: 06V090000
Component(s): WHEELS
All Products Associated with this Recall expand
Details close
12 Associated Documents expand
Manufacturer: KTM NORTH AMERICA, INC
SUMMARY:
ON CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES, THE FRONT WHEEL SPOKES CAN BECOME LOOSE AND BREAK, CAUSING FURTHER DAMAGE TO ADJACENT COMPONENTS.
CONSEQUENCE:
SUCH A FAILURE OF A FRONT WHEEL SPOKE COULD POSSIBLY DAMAGE THE TIRE'S INNER TUBE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
REMEDY:
DEALERS WILL INSTALL CLIPS TO HELP SECURE A LOOSE SPOKE TIGHT TO THE NEXT CROSSING SPOKE. THE RECALL BEGAN IN APRIL 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT KTM AT 1-440-985-3553.

NOTES:
CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

As an aside, recalls never expire, so if yours never got the clips the dealer owes you a set (or you could just safety wire the spokes together and ride on)

thanks gunner, you're talking about the piston O-ring in the slave? Can I use any O-ring of the same size or am I going to need to order an OEM one? I've burned up half the summer ordering new bits from Munn already.

I found that the countershaft O-rings works well for this application but you could fit a generic 2mm x 24 or 25 MM and it should work.. Here is a thread on the subject: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=464845

Yes I am aware of this, but I also heard talk about whole rims recalled but on a different year.
My front rim has these clips. Some of the front rim spokes are starting to look rusty.
and the seller must of put air in the front tire just before I got there to pick it up, because its flat now :(

So before I pulled the rim off to throw on a new tire and tube, I wanted to know if maybe the 2000 had more of a recall then just the spoke clips.

The only recall showing on the NTSB site for the 2000 was the spoke clips. The front wheel replacement recall was for later years according to that site. Looks like the 2001 640 Adv was the first year with the front wheel replacement recall.

Speaking of the spoke clips, my 2000 Adv doesn't have them. What do they look like? Would ziptieing the spokes at the crosses do the same thing?

The GL Coyote fits great on a 640. The rear fender clips are compatible and the straps tie by the passenger peg mount. The Coyote stays put no matter how you ride or have it loaded and it goes on and off in seconds.

Kinda off topic, but I ziptied my rear spokes, and it greatly cut down on the rear brake squeal. (if anyone beside me has/had that problem)

I might try that on two of my bicycles that squeal

Thanks again gunner for the link

The only bikes that received the full recall were Adventures. I believe that the 2001/2002/2003 year models only were involved. My 2003 Adventure certainly was, it got a new Excel rim, spokes, and hub in 2006.

I pulled it and it doesn't look like the o-ring had much girth left to give a good seal. Any suggestions on where to go shopping for new?

The countershaft o-ring is about 2 bucks through the KTM dealer or you could try a heavy equipment service dealer like finning or such and try to get a 2mm x 24 match...

Hi everybody!

My name is Maxim, I'm from Yekaterinburg, Russia. Bought a 1997 KTM 620 Adventure with 2005 LC4 640 engine.

VIN# VBKGSL409VM717788

Does anybody knows where I can find a Rekluse clutch to my bike? I've used it on my CRF, my friends are using it on their 950/990Adv. Maybe online-store or somebody is selling it?
