The successful mileage you've seen with your 640adv has prompted me to look for one of my own.

The bike is still running well with that old piston bouncing around in there... I'm near 172,000km now and it uses zero oil, my is plan to renew the piston at the 200,000 mark...

Respect man. I know a lot of bikers that haven't made so many km in their 10 or so years of riding ...

Adjustable rear brake lever

Hi all,
I have been searching threads for anyone that has fitted or knows where one can get an adjustable rear brake lever. Does it exist or is it a mod i have to make myself.
I have large feet and thought it may be worth trying longer length level. Also same with gear shift lever, especially when standing.

Is that your all up weight with tools and bags?

I'll do mine next week when I get my giant loop.

Good stuff.

Have you replaced the rings, valves or valve guides during that time?

The current rings have 45,000 kms on them, same goes for the valves... I usually do a valve service at 40,000 km intervals, but this time I am just going to keep running them until they produce symptoms of been worn... Clintz ran his valves to 90,000 km before they were serviced so they will go a fair ways and Clintz does not baby his bike...

My bike also does not have an easy life, it has done a lot of luggage loaded 2 up riding, spent a lot of time on rough trails and gravel tracks...

I am a pre-emptive servicer as to where I like to replace stuff before they are worn out... I will usually do an in depth service every 2nd winter at around 40,000 KM intervals... At this time I'll inspect the all the engine bearings that are visible without pulling the motor for wear... At 127K I found that one bearing on the countershaft showed excessive wear so I decided to tear the whole engine down as outlined in this thread: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=632893

WP Extreme 50mm Forks

I just picked up a set of low miles, (6500 mostly street use), WP 50mm forks. They came off of an Enduro, they're going on a 2001 640 Enduro.

I don't want to re-invent the wheel. I'm looking for the straight poop on servicing them for a 160 lb rider. Anyone have links to the service manual for these forks? Thanks.

I see you can buy say from TT the lever extension but it really only widens the lever from the original folding one. What i'd like to do is extend the length.

sounds like custom fabrication, unless you get lucky and find one from another bike that fits the shaft and the shape of the engine... I think you should start a thread on that so you get more attention.

I would guess that the reason for the existence of this connector wouldn't have changed. Based on what the manual says, I'm second guessing my memory that more than just the headlight is turned off when this is disconnected - it's been too long since I tried it, I just don't remember.



*** EDIT ***
I realized the wire was long enough to pull it out and get a picture, so here it is in real life.



Hope this stuff is helpful.
You made me check my 03 manual - they dropped this nice bit - I was wondering for a bit if I didn't read my manual carefully... I can check my bike next time I have the dash off for others, but I did rewire the headlights to get adequate power to them and now have a similar connection for connecting a battery charger, which I could use to disconnect the headlights.
