The 640 has never loved starting when cold - but it always started, just 10 seconds of cranking rather then 1. But this seemed different, just nothing...

It has been rejetted (not by me) to accommodate the highflow side cover - I will bring all my spare jets and the original cover and play with it. To be honest I think the open side cover may account for the fact that the bike does not like water over 21 inches deep - which is right about where the bottom screen is... just a theory but I have been tempted to change it back for next year.

Mine would always fire right up. Had a similar side cover, too.

No new bikes here. Fortunately the guy with the KTM never responded. Tell you the truth, it would probably have been a mistake to buy that, a mistake I'd probably have made anyway but since he didn't call, I was saved from it.

If my bike can survive this, it's all I need right now. (Mine's the first one through - I lent it to Skibum in 2011)



Not sure I would have lent it if I knew he'd be doing this with it!

You could have a duel. Each carry an envelope and some lemon juice, at high noon.

You could call it "Duel Sport"!
