The Giant Loop works very well - I have a Touratech rack extension that it sits/attaches on top of and then the straps go down through the loop where the rear foot-pegs used to be mounted. No movement at all - really well thought out product that works nicely on the 640.

not the best picture, but my GiantLoop is seating all the way back on the KTM rear rack, my tent is attached to the back of it,
I like to keep the seat real-estate for riding and move position and some space for my camelback.

Revelstoker's straps are protected from heat of the exhaust by a rack mount. I used a hook from an old tie-down strap, looped the strap through the hook, and hooked it on the footrest bracket exactly like Revelstoker did. This moved the strap well away from the bend in the exhaust.

Coyote on the 640 with a 1200 Pelican box mounted on the rack behind the bag. Fender hooks were removed rom the bag, and the straps simply looped through the rear rack.

There are threads dedicated to luggage, where folks in the future might easily find this great discussion. Once this thread gets another few pages of other conversation tacked on your chat will essentially be buried (unless searchers know which terms to use on a site or internet search).

Here's one dedicated to the 640:

Please... tell me if I should buy an old little Vespa scooter... yes, those ones you can use a skirt with...

Seriously, since the first time I full loaded my bike, I felt using the footpeg like getting on a horse, was the most basic way to go (even though months later I added the side stand).

yes

Bluhduh Headlight fuse?

2001 640 adventure.

Lost my headlights today on the way to work. They worked just fine in the garage.

I know it's a fuse. So to save time and frustration, which one?

Under the dash? Or under the seat?

TIA

The last time I lost my headlights it was due to a broken off terminal inside the ignition key switch...

I'm looking for a side stand for my 2006 LC4 Adv.
Who can tell me which one will fit my model 100%?
p.s. I want to use it with center stand, not instead of it.

I have the SW-motech one, and like it:)

If you have a 2006 with the black powder coated frame, maybe you'll want the black sidestand..

Champ,
On my '02 one of 3 fuses under the dash, check them all, on mine the dash mounting bracket was razor sharp and cut into the fuse wire grounding and killing the lights or causing them to flicker.

A quick file job and a couple of pieces of tape solved the problem of the sharp edge.
