Edit: And what kickstand is that!? The my stock stand is about to give out from abuse.
Does it make sense now? Aftermarkets cost $100 and up! These cost me nothing! Cutting up the frame would be too far with all the options out there!

Currently, I am using the stock Mikuni BST40. The issue I have had is that I rarely need the choke and the cable gets bound in the steering and sometimes comes on slightly. I also want to simplify the controls/handlebars. The shorter cable seems to be working well, but I did have to modify the knob so that there was slack in it. I am considering a conversion to a FCR41, my brother has an extra from his XR675L/SM project!

The kickstand is the SW-Motech, also referred to as the Shin Death Dealer! As soon as you move the bike off the stand it retracts, due to Euro Vehicular Code!

Very nice........except for the color.........I hate blue!!

The Stenhouse mount is very nice.........give Loadedagain a call for the rise you require.
I was fortunate that Colin lives/works close by and was able to deliver what I needed for the Scott's damper install.
Look into the Scott''s rear disc guard as they are very nice!

I can also supply you with a tool tube if you need one???

Hope you are well!

Cheers

At the time, I didn't know that you could get one from another KTM model, so I took it down to an exhaust shop and had the center replaced with the straight pipe. Its a difficult job, the pipe has to be squished into an oval shape before welding, so its not a job for the average shop.

Well, over the last week I got a few miles of riding in, nothing too fun, just around town. But also got a bunch of work done, mostly cleaning the pigsty know as my workshop! But I figured out my fan hasnt been working, altho it still has been fine in the cooling department. The fuse was blown, after changing it, the fan comes on when I short the switch, but hasnt turned on while riding, so that might be bad! I also, pulled the fairing and tank off and started installing the newish throttle assembly from a 2008 250XCF. It came from ebay with a G2 throttle sleeve and K100 cam. I also put new cables on it, lubed the cables and greased the hell out of it all! It's nice! It also got a used 950 right side control pod. The reason I changed them is that the earlier 640A have the throttle assembly and right controls as 1 unit, so it's not possible to adjust the cable housing and the starter button independently. Still left to be done there is to swap the wiring over, looks to be plug and play, move the grip heater over, then put the grip, handguard and barend weight all back together.

I'm going to see if I can use an old set of knockoff CRG Barend Mirrors, except they will be inboard of the control pods on either side. That should clean up the bars quite a bit!

I had my eye on a couple different ones thru him, but long term plan is to go with the HighwayDirtBikes system and mirrors. They are pricey enough that I'm not going to put any more money into mirrors. I have had the crg knockoff floating around for 6 or so years from my old Ducati ss900sp. Thanks for the tip tho!

Hey, Low, congrats for your mighty job, I envy your dedication.
I saw today your link, didn't know about your project.
Now ride, ride, ride!

BTW, your dashboard is impressive. How did you planned to protect your cellphone and iPod-like music device from dust? I guess rain is not an issue in CA, but dust... I'm courious 'cause I want to add a small thermometer to mine, and I don't want to install a disproportionate watertight box just for that tiny poor thing

Cheers mate.

Thank you! Still so much I want to do with her (riding and setup)!

The dash will be getting a rebuild soon, with the addition of a TrailTech Vapor Stealth, since the IMO is shot and so is the tach! But, the orange (cell-phone like device) is an outdoor waterproof rated GPSr, but doesnt do roadway navigation, just tracking and laptop programmed routes for offroad! All 3 devices unplug in a matter of seconds, and get stowed in the tankbag. If I need them in the rain of dust, I always have sandwich bags and rubber bands!


BTW, one of these days I hope to be able to make it down your way and go see Machu Picchu, when that happens I will be asking for some tips! Maybe a guide, if you are up for it! But its like to be a good long while.

Low,
Ok, clear enough, thanks!

Coming South: that would be great!
Ask me all you need to ask when you decide it's time to, I do can be your local guide
Once you start to define how far you want to go, avaliable days, etc, just let me know.

Glad to know I can be of some help.

Well, been making progress over the last few days, despite fighting off a cold and possible sinus infection!

Got the EXC throttle assembly installed and the 950 right pod. The pod wasnt as straight forward as I hoped, I had to disassemble it, figure out the wiring and re-terminate 4 wires and re-pin the old Molex plug. One interesting thing I found about the 950 pod, there is a blank panel between the kill and starter swithes & 4 yellow wires in the Molex that dont make it all the way to the pod, tips just taped together hiding in the abrasion tube. Maybe a switch that can be added??

I also sorted some engine hoses and inspected the fan wiring, while the tank was off. Still not sure why the fan never seems to turn on, other than testing the thermo switch. It works when I short the switch out, so it all seems good. But I bought an infrared thermometer today at Harbor Freight. That way I can let her idle and check temps to see if it should be turning on!

Also, removed the Hi Beam, maybe forever! I made up a plastic blank to fill the hole, and will be mounting my ADVMonster Model 60 Flood light in its place. Its already wired into the HiBeam molex!

It's been a productive few days!
