    No not in Sydney. Just really wanted to know whether you can just remove the small clutch cover? Gaskets? Special tools required?
    I just want to replace the plates both fibre and steel along with springs.
    Cheers

    No special tools required Snarley, just lay it down and remove the cover and take out the clutch stack bolts.
    Remove the steel and fibre plates with a hook tool, from memory there is a wave washer in there that has to go back in the right spot.
    Reassemble with Loctite and a torque wrench to specks
    I reused the gasket
    job done

    On the side stand is all you require, but if you dont mind picking it up that is also an option

    The last fibre plate is smaller (inner)

    Pretty sure it’s an O ring seal so you can remove it time and time again - no gaskets to worry about

    A question for the collective.

    I am looking at a triple clamp from a 950/990 KTM, what I need to know is are they the same as the 640A (where I intend to fit it)? I understand the forks are the same diameter, but what I don't know is if the fork centres are the same distance apart, their offset from the steering axis centre, and the angle they are in degrees. I'd be thrilled if it's a straight swap, but I just don't know.

    So, has anyone ever looked into this previously? :ear

    Thanks.

    Whats with the interlopers in the 950 thread?

    Presume its for the BRP triple setup I saw for sale somewhere, see their 950 triple here https://www.shopbrp.com/ktm/product...triple-clamp-03-13-ktm-adventure-950-990.html and triple for later 640 with twin disc here https://www.shopbrp.com/ktm/product...triple-clamp-05-08-ktm-adventure-640-690.html

    Note the part number is similar but not the same, also see that there is a different handlebar position listed for each so obviously not identical but may still work.

    950 top triple fiche shows x & d dimesions http://www.ktmonlineparts.com.au/pa...e-black-low/front-fork-triple-clamp#ficheZone 640 fiche shows same dimensions http://www.ktmonlineparts.com.au/pa...adventure-r/front-fork-triple-clamp#ficheZone

    So I've run out of interest but if the front hubs, spacers and fork stubs are the same for 640 and 950 then the only question you've asked left unanswered is the angle, maybe do some trawling of parts catalogues to see if you can find a listing of the 950 or 990 lower triple x and d to answer that as its listed for the 640.

    Thanks for that reply.

    Where else would I ask for expert advice on 950/990 parts? :-) And you have delivered in spades, thank you very much. :thumb

    DSCN4255.jpg DSCN4252.jpg After many months of owning the bike, I finally managed a weekend of getting to know the bike. I elected to go on an organized ride and part of this ride was sand. What a fantastic weekend and just how capable these bike are. I must confess there is 'technique' required to ride in the sand as i found out, but i refused to give up. Puts a new dimension on hard work but I try sand again.

    Hey @1coolbanana on your shim stack recipe, what are you referring to with 2.40-2.45?
    Do you think the 2 stage cross over shim you have put in the base has done anything? Or have you done the cardinal sin all us impatient people do and changed too many things at once to give a definitive answer :lol3

    I was going to put a fraction more float on the mid valve but I might do something similar to the 2012 EXC just for shits and giggles

    2.40 and 2.45 are the total float gap above the mid piston with no shims LHS and RHS
    I use that to work out the final float I want in case I need dummy shims to make the difference.

    No idea if its an improvement yet, I havent ridden it since, my hand is still rooted.

    Let me know :lol3

    Have tried to take photos of the light throw for you (finally, sorry) but as I can't control the fstop on the iPhone camera it's not a great comparison of low/high and with the light bar on. Hopefully you get an idea of the pattern, at least. I'll try and remember to try with my proper camera at some point!

    (Light bar is sitting a bit high at the moment I think. Needs adjustment.)

    Light bar looks like it will burn the fur off anything within range!
