No KTM dealers within 500 miles of me, I'll go the heavy equipment route. Cheers.

Yep, both of mine have a bit of a howl. The rear is worse. It sure gets everyone's attention when you pull up to a stop. Loud brakes save lives!

Mine would howl each and every time I got in the rear when speeds were below 20ish.

After zip tieing all of the rear spoke intersections, she'll howl only every nice in a while and not nearly as loud.

The front doesn't make any noise, but the front wheel was replaced on recall to the much stronger setup.

Try them, asks for the 640 Recluse

Not translating what ChrisC said... but the best way to find out where a manufacturer's product retails near you is to check with the manufacturer:

http://www.rekluse.com/dealer.shtml

Since you gave us your hometown I had a look - the middle of Russia; must be beautiful. Looks like the closest distributor is in Latvia; here's their partner's list:

Finally got bitten by the Orange bug

Well, I officially and finally have one. After 6 months of searching, not sure what bike I was going to buy, it all made sense in the end…….i had to go Orange.
Here she is. 2005, 29Km's, decent honest condition. New set of rubber and off we go. Heres a first video.

Cheers,

John Deere dealerships are usually a great source of o-rings and bearings.

The problem is that a few years ago Rekluse stopped producing a 640 LC4 kits. And I need to find a place where this kit is in stock.
For example:

nothing in my neck of the woods but I got a few to try from my local BMW shop and NAPA to try and all gratis. The first of 2 sizes seems to be holding well so far; I'll check again in the am. Thanks for all the help

I just joined the club, picked up another member's bike who was local to me. 02 640A with a few mods, enough to keep me tided over for the season (with any luck). Changed the oil yesterday, am going to take a look at the valves before a quick trip up north this weekend.
