The colors above speak for themselves as quintessential KTM.

The video in the links is way cool.

Send me a PM with your email address, I've got a nice PDF where somebody document the rebuild of a 660 Rally of that vintage.

Are there any typical weaks spots to check on a 660 Rally?

The seller claims it was used in 2006 DAKAR.

I just have to take a fight with 200cm 100kg brother about who of us will get the bike.
Well brother as I secured the deal today we are up for a fight and the winner of us in Rally Mongolia 2013 have the right for the bike.

Will be interesting to follow this thread as my/our 660 needs a complete overhaul during the winter.

ok, another step forward.

Frame is ok, at first sight i thought ok repaint the frame but it's in good shape and has the orginal color :)
So is the engine, a good shape, all the oil filters gonna be replaced, better save then sorry.


Just ordered a new battery, the on it was complete dead.
Next thing is to replace all the fuel and vent lines. And maybe also all the quickreleases of the fueltanks. Anyone a glue where to find the transparant yellow ventlines?

The turnlights i hate them and make the bike looking stupid imo. There is enough choice among led turnsignals that are just small enough to bee legal.

Weak points.. take headache tablets with you, you will need them by the end of the day. Aluminium sidestand is prone to breakage near the top. Be carefull when putting the airbox back onto the carb boot as its really easy to overtighten the large hoseclamp and kink the airbox and get an airleak on the wrong side of the airfilter. They vibe as much as a 640, just to dispell that myth but the wide ratio box is much better. Check and replace the dry breaks as a faulty one will dump fuel onto the exhaust. Not good at all. I have found some plated brass ones from a GS parts online shop I'll buy one day. Bill look at the parts lists between an 03Adv and 03Rally (ktmpartfinder) the hi-flow head is the same except for the cam. I have a 22mm offset tripleclamp which is brilliant. The swingarm is 2" longer than a 640 so they feel a lot different. Ride and handling is superb. Depending on throttle use 700km range is easy.

Lc8,
Thanks for the C head info.
Is the water pump on the balancer shaft because it would it turn slower?

The wheelbase increase is very interesting.
It won't turn as quickly, that's for sure.

How did they get the extra length?
Swing arm, steering head?

bill

The sidestand is already a steel one! Replaced at Caldecott during the trip Meindert made in AU.

The other point, THX!

Hmm the millage you can get very nice!!!

I think the waterpump is primarily packaging, it does take up some room on the side of the head. They just have a large alu bung in the head. The swingarm measures 2" longer. It feels longer and doesn't turn as well as a 640 but is much more stable feeling at any speed. The 640 has a big trailbike feel whereas the Rally is more like a 950 but dramaticaly lighter, even full of fuel. This is odd considering the 660 is almost 200kg when full.
