    There is a 50/50 chance you may need a new shaft also. The bearings are a cheap common size, so if you have a bearing shop locally get them there rather than via KTM.

    Great guide - I also replaced the shaft, orings and impeller (from KTM) and bearings (eBay) - bought the Hondabond HT for the gasket. My 1999 only needed one oring, FYI.

    Hap', hap' I need a Dudley Doright to come to my rescue. My digital speedo, odo went on the fritz during the CDT, very dusty. Geekventure was kind enough to come to my aid. Hesaid it was electircal and to use contact spray ( I am partial to Boeshield T-9 developed by Boieing for use on airplane elec connectors ) Well, done that. No joy. Any other ideas? Oh, it's an '06.

    hey guys.. I have a 2005 640 Adventure. I was wondering, anyone else find the stock seat uncomfortable in a way that would make longer rides unreasonable? I mean I can ride a Sport bike 11 hours stoppingonly for fuel, but this seat feels like it pushes the fat on your but up near the tail bone. ( fyi Im not overweight, im average for an athlete ) not sure if its common, or what... Anyone else have experiences with this? Was thinking redoing the seat, or aftermarket might be better.
    Advice?

    I can ride 11 hrs per day with this seat, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be a lot better to have a more comfortable one, even more if it's saddly tarmac :cry. I have to ride stoodup to wake my but up during long tarmac rides :D

    But what can I do... that's another reason to keep myself offroad!

    I know many inmates have upgraded to Renazco and other's products successfully.

    I'm with liferider on this one, the 640 seat works just fine for me and I do a lot of long days... Of coarse anything can be improved on...
