    Yeah, I was trying to mount it to the bike instead of me! Less wind baffling on my head and neck.

    Trying not to bruise my "neck meat". :lol3

    Sorry, I can't be much help about the lights and mounts........the previous owner had them installed.

    I just picked up the bike last week, so I do not know too much about it either.

    I do know I will have to do the rear suspension linkage bearing that is in the frame.

    Other than that the bike looks good so far.

    Thanks for posting the photo's.

    Cheers

    So I have done some changes to my beloved 640
    Some changes on the electrical system
    Pictures before and after.
    Wiring that is how it looks now.
    Removed the following items on the schedule.
    39 Roadbook power, If I need it i'll get it from my 12v terminal
    40 clutch switch
    43 TPS
    48 Diode
    49 3th gear
    50 2th gear
    Neutral

    Two separate 12 volts is routed to the terminal. Here I pick out a little extra to handle the heated grips and later HID.

    New paint for glory's sake, new electrical system, according to previous posts, new plastic that was required, new turn signals else there is nothing new under the sun

    While I am eagerly awaiting the return of my suspension from Stillwell Performance, I figured I'd tackle a throttle lock and Hyde Racing Windscreen. Both mods I've been wanting to tackle since I bought the bike. While I like to spend as little time on the tarmac as possible, I figure I might as well make myself as comfortable as I can be when pavement is the only option. :D

    Wasn't a huge fan of the clear screen, so I had a buddy who owns a vinyl shop cover it for me. Not an exact match, but at 75mph or covered in dirt, who'll be the wiser!! :rofl

    I'll let you know what I think of it's performance next weekend when the 640 is back together and ready to roll...

    I pm'd the seller of a bike that looked just like yours. It's a custom light mount that attaches to the lower triple clamp. If you get a chance can you take some pics and post em up? BTW nice bike!

    It was JWMudd that the bike came from a couple of weeks ago........I have a tough time posting photo's here, but I will take some photo's of the lights for you and let you know when I have them.

    I just painted mine all white.:lol3 You beat me to posting the pics. I have a Cycra front fender that is orange with white vented at the rear. But it doesn't match the stock orange side panels/fender. So I was thinking the early 98-99 white fender off the RXC would probally look sweet. You just confirmed my thoughts.:lol3 It looks dam good. So I am gonna steal your look from ya.:lol3 But I do have some orange so we wont look like total twinks if we ever ride together.:lol3Did you order it thru KTM? Mine is a 01. Yours looks like a 01 also.

    So I took my wheels into Woody's last Friday. My front was beyond repair so I decided to go for the gold. Waiting patiently now on fully rebuilt wheels with new rims and superlace! I'm looking forward to them! I'm going w/ the silver version instead of black to save about $100. I do like the black, but figure the silver will also hide scratches better n stuff. I haven't seen any orange 640's w/ the silver wheels anywhere yet. Anyone out there have them on theirs? How about any other happy Woody's customers on the 640's out there? Been happy? :freaky
