    I think the 01-06 660s are the best looking of the ktm rallys.

    it's elec start only. No problem i put a gel accu as replacement.

    The shock and fork are now at Reiger Suspension for a complete overhaul and rider weight/skill adjustment :evil

    Ordered already many parts and waiting on all those nice packages :D yep it must come across the big lake.
    Due to the Dakar that is oncoming many suppliers have other things on their mind then a rebuild project. In january i'm going to order the complete RNS nav stuff Tony Shattet did a nice job with the new tripmaster!


    Next is:
    - repainting the rear frame (powdercoating off course)
    - rebuilding the front wheel, because of a cracked rim
    - Rewire the electricity part


    And already planning some trips:norton i'm one off the guys who is doing the tracks on the Easter GS weekend 2013 in the Netherlands. Hopefully the 660 is ready then.
    Next i'm planning a trip to russia (was there long time ago) or marokko (must have revenge at a qued :lol3 where i broke down a BMW 1100RR)

    The plan of the color scheme has changed....

    The 660s are things of beauty - :D

    This is mine after a full restore, when I get the time I may post the full story, this competed in the 2007 Dakar as number 146

    MrPDiddy,
    Not much impresses me in mc's these days but your bike is just very nicely done.
    Had to right click for a new screen saver pic, it comes on very well.

    Curious about suspension mods for racing if any and the single front brake, was that OEM?
    What year is your machine?
    And thanks,
    bill

    I beg to differ Johnno I think stylewise the 690 is better looking but I do love the rougher edge less refined look of the 660.

    Another tip is to make a loop for your seat Dzus before you lose it like this

    And if you are into fabrication move your battery here as on the factory bikes,

    [​IMG]

    So you can make a toolbox for under the seat like this

    The factory bikes had bigger rear tanks which touched in the middle like Andys 05 Dakar Motorex 660.

    And thats why the 640 looks too short in the rear in relation to the rear guard..

    Reckon you're right, I've always thought it looks 'tucked in' to the centre of the bike or something. The Rallye has an angled rear guard extender, compared to the 640's more nearly vertical one, which looks more like the EXCs racier-looking angled extender.

    The bike keeps losing weight.

    Now waiting on the rest to come so we can start building the bike in its original form

    I don't suppose it's for sale? I'm trying to find the right Rallye, preferably already in the UK...

    I recommend replacing the oil pumps and the vacuum release plate & seal on the FCR (my 02 swallowed part of the plate when it cracked off).

    Hello Oossie

    I'm overhauling a 660 year 2002 in Mongolia and I have glassfiber panels covering both front and rear tank can't find that on your picures of your bike are your tanks painted directly on the tanks ?

    I have been looking in the parts manual as well and can't find the panels in the manual.

    Maybe the other owners could answer as well if they have knowledge about the side panels.

    These panels are not stock, the tanks are normally painted directly.
