Nice, my '03 640A is my battle-ax and the 950A is the battle wagon
Dirt_sanchez has his 640 up for sale! What is happening!?! :huh
Juames- Dude! They have new fangled fuel injected bikes out now-a-days!
Yes, it's true, not enough room in the shop for a real live 690cc bike and a 625cc bike along with the other dirt bikes, bicycles, tools, loading press, lathe, etc., etc. and have enough room to even walk in there.
I'll still come to visit though...I promise.
i filled mine with lead shot and added some bar end weights (fabed by my pops). both changes made noticeable improvements to the handling. also, check and make sure your wheels are balanced. turned out my front wheel was way outta whack when I got her. once i sorted that out, the stability over 70mph and the vibrations in the bars got noticeably better. also, i think it is worth taking the bars apart and making sure everything is snug and loctight-ed. i've found some loose bolts which could be due to the vibes or to lack of attention by the PO.
+1 on the nervous energy!
I know this is a "check in" thread but I'm "checking out", last week I parted with my trusty 2001 LC4 Adv....
Got around 2800, 40 000km, I did 31 000 on it.
What can I say...now I'm looking for a exc 450...luckily I have two or three friends that will sell my a 2006 or 2007 Adv in a couple of years so I'll be "checking back in".
that is soooo sad, you need another shed obviously
Sad to see you leaving the 640 Flock... I'm sure there will be times when you miss the ride...
One thing that seems to be happening is that we have a whole new bunch of 640 owners jumping on board, probably some with the bikes that you guys are selling...
I plan to hang onto mine until a better Adventure bike comes along because for the type of riding I do in the country I live nothing comes close to the 640A...
You too are leaving? Seduced by the 690... You guys will be missed on here...
Then he'll be called Dirty "Two Sheds" Sanchez.
I just caught up on Fishfund's 08 690 FI problems in Africa. Apparently, the charging circuit voltage regulator was causing voltage spikes that were creating consistent error codes in the ECU and thus "get you home type" (abysmal) performance. Note to selves, a small multimeter in tool box is handy!
And be well, ride safe.
It's a cult bike.
Well, no need to say "goodbye's" I'll be around and checking on what you do. It was a pleasure to hang with you guys and thanks for all the help with the wrenching, learned a lot from you all.
A 640 WILL be back in my garage, hopefully the one with twin exhausts, fancy nav tower and all the factory bling....
Oh, I still have a Renazco seat, mint condition, giving it away cheeply, but as I'm across the world the postage could be a problem for you American guys. Just an info.

<!-- / message -->
Mac, sorry to see You go :/
Good news is it will be just temporary absence
PS. What will be the price for the renazco seat? Give me a PM.
First, I don't mean to hijack the thread but as so many of you are interested in the seat I'll post info here, please don't continue to discuss the seat here, from here on all communication about the seat goes via PM's. Thanks and sorry to all the others.
At the time the pics were taken the seat was not cleaned, except for dust (in the pics) seat is in excellent condition.
It is a little lower than stock and may be specially interesting to shorter riders, I'm 191 cm and it suites me fine. It is a bit wider in the riders position as well as in the pillion's position. It is harder than stock what I, personally, like, specially for longer trips. My wife was delighted because of the wider pillion spot. Suede means the pillion is not sliding onto riders back what makes life easier. Suede is comfortable, and the shape of the seat allows the rider to grip it with his knees better than stock when riding in stand up position. Looks bling....
The postage - values are cca, as per Croatian Postal Service website (informative only):
To USA, economy (means slow) = cca 80$
To AUS, economy (also means slow ) = cca 100$ (US dollars!!)
For ex.; To Romania = 52$
1 US $ = 5,77 Kuna (Croatian money) as per exchange rates of the bank I'm a customer of (see left side column):
The price for the seat would be 200$ (US $), no matter AUS, USA or Europe.
Payment via Western Union money transfer or similar service (Croatia is non EU so PayPal doesn't work, sorry...)
Cheers and sorry again to all the others! I'll nuke the post in a few days!
Yup, he does an excellent job. I went with vinyl as I use mine for touring etc and I really didn't want to be dealing with soggy suede on long trips. I put in back to back 1000+ km days on this no problem.
You've had a sweet ride, mate!
If I didn't had the seat re-built by Kahedo few months ago - I'd definitely go on your's one :)
and btw I'm looking on EXC530 right now, but not going to leave my 640 beauty :) just add one more orange beast in my garage :)
Anyone aware of such a thing for my 06?
I'd like to have such tool also, cause original one is pretty weak
