    good one!:lol3

    oh yeah, for the seat guy-I regularly do 1000 km days on my Renazco. If you plan on touring etc go with vinyl rather than suede. I have vinyl on the 640 and suede for the 525

    I believe that is the nicest looking 640 I have seen so far. Makes mine look like an abused KLR :(

    Love the Snoopy!

    Thanks all for the great response on the Seat issue. I will definitely be looking into renazco.com this winter for a new seat. :clap
    Much appreciated!

    Put your order in tomorrow for Renazco!

    If your fortunate, you MIGHT get your new seat by March. That is why I bought a cheap used seat off of eBay.

    You can still ride while you wait for your build date.

    New to me 2000 640A with 3500 miles on it. I hated the range of my TE449 and decided it wasn't what I needed in a dual sport. The 640 is exactly what I wanted.

    Looking for advise -- I'm having issues with my head lights (2000 640 ADV)
    Both stopped working, fuse is ok but i suspect there is a short somewhere.
    I'm pretty handy with repairs but when it comes to electric systems I'm about as dumb as a blond cheerleader :evil and so far I have not found the source of the problem.
    Would it be logical to buy a complete wiring harness? any other ideas?

    That's what a blonde cheerleader would do. :lol3

    Get a multimeter, a wiring diagram, and take an hour to trace the fault.

    You don't need to be a "Rocket Doctor".

    Emmbeedee is right, not that I have any idea what he's up to on the 640A thread:lol3

    But yes, multi meter and start checking continuity in all of the wires from the lights and switches according to the wiring diagram in the owners manual.

    I don't remember what the wee ground wire under the right side panel affects but have a look at that too
