giv 'er eh!
What, is there a law against reading up about bikes one doesn't own? I wouldn't mind a 640 someday, if the right one crossed my path.
just teasing you, it was surprising to me to see you pop up in here is all. You should have bought Mike's from 2touringtheworld when he sold it.
Hi Guys. I'm mounting a 640 low rally front fender on a set of 2004 KYB yz forks. Who makes the kit to raise it up a little bit? I want to make my brackets to mount it out of the lift kit. Thanks.
What's the easiest way to correct an over full crankcase? The previous owner put in too much and it's coming out in the airbox. It's about 1/8" past the top line. That's checking by placing the dipstick in the hole and NOT screwing it in.
Contact Dave at RM
I think you may have to build your own. ( it is easy !!! )
With the filler plug out, tip the bike over and let her drain a bit onto some rags.
Wow. Way easier than I thought. Thanks.
Where in the hell do you find a 99 with 3500 miles on it? In a couple of years when you want to try something new keep me in mind. I wouldn't mind being a owner of a 99. I have always like the front shields of the early years.
vacuum pump/brake bleeder is nice if you have one, but if you had one, you probably would have already thought of that.
BTW, you probably know this, but the oil level is read off of the dipstick after it's been screwed all the way in- so your oil probably about 5/8" or 3/4" too full.
Get somebody to lend a hand to spot you so the meter reader doesn't find a dried up dead body next month with a KTM laying on top of him.
I had their setup on my 525 when it was a Dakar build, good guys
I called the dealer I bought my TE 449 from asking about 990 Adventures. The sales manager wanted to know why I wanted that. I told him about the range annoying me. He then told me he might entertain selling his personal 640A. It was owned by two people before me. Both were employed at dealers and the bike just had stuff bolted onto it and ridden rarely. The engine hasn't been messed with at all. The airbox is still stock.
I finally got around to reading the manual and figured that out. Thanks though.
I damn near had the bike leaning on the gas tank to get the oil to come out. As mentioned above it was over 1/2" too high. Reading the oil change procedure I can understand why. I'm surprised I don't have to spin around four times and clap my hands twice with all the shit that goes into an oil change.
Why not just pull the sump drain and catch a litre of oil and replace bung. Yes, you may get your hands dirty! Then just refill to the correct amount?
There are two on eBay right now for sale.

Well that's it done changed to new style speedo
My hydraulic clutch conversion is doing weird things. In the morning it was easy to change gears and it started engaging just barely after I started releasing the lever. After a 350 mile ride today it is harder to shift into neutral when stopped and the clutch engages almost to the end of releasing the lever. I can't feel it slipping. Do you think I just need to swap out the Magura fluid? Can I really use ATF instead of Magura fluid?
On an unrelated note, I love this bike! It mountain goats up rutted out hills. The Renazco seat only started bugging me after 7 hours of my 10 hour ride. It's way under sprung for my 285 pounds. The Scott's steering damper is worth it's weight in gold.
sounds like maybe your clutch needs to be bled?
