If I post a pic of the tank, can you Identify it?
Come on post a pic, we won't laugh promise.
Look on the bottom of the tank, it may have the KTM part number moulded on it. It it does, use munnracing.com to cross reference the part number.
If it is listed on the normal parts fiche, it's a standard tank and can be painted, wrapped etc. If it says it's from the KTM hard parts catalog, then it is the unpaintable one.
On my 2005 640A, when you look inside the filler cap, the tank is a white(ish) colour. My tank from the hard parts catalog is orange the whole way through (and translucent). (Yes I have both tanks and swap them depending on the ride).
The clear solution then, is to trade me your hard parts tank, for this one. Seems equitable.
The shipping to Australia would make it cheaper for you to buy a new tank!
The real reason I bought the hard parts tank is on the later models, the tank capacity was reduced and sometimes I need all the range I can get. Also, I ride like shit (fall off a lot), so I prefer scratching the hard parts tank than the super expensive original.
The one in my 03 ADV is stuffed too, feel free to post up what you did to replace it when you do yours . I cannot tell if I need a puller or not to get to it. (anyone replaced one before?)
you definitely need a puller
I have the Puller if you want to borrow it RJF. Few Hours work - easy.
Cheers Lego, I think there maybe pullers and stuff packed away at work somewhere.
Seems like I've brushed through some "how to" write ups here on ADV. But will gladly put one together, I've had the magneto cover off, it really does look straight forward with a puller.
Seems like the cause of the starter clutch slipping can be a weak spring..
And that's all I'm replacing on mine, using this SKF part for $9.18
Watch when reading through the how to...................I don't think using the crankshaft locking bolt method is a great idea for holding the flywheel when tightening things back up.
Is the rear end in the attach pic a factory rally part or something that appeared on only certain models?
I believe that rear fender/brake lifts are from a 660 rally. Side panels are stock for that bike though.
The rear fender is standard in the old models (the ones with the split front fairings). The guy attached the ''standard'' acerbis rally lights on the fender... Mind you, to put this rear fender you need to change: Side panels (cheap), rear fender (cheap) and subframe.... Good luck with that BajaDad has some parts up for sale
To me it looks like an older model with a different front suspension and wheels (the fuel pump is located at the front of the engine).
I'm more concerned with whatever that is in the far bottom right of the pic.
In noticed the side stand with the centre stand... I thought that you cannot fit both KTM stands at the same time and you have to go aftermarket...
Tricks ? :huh
If I recall, '99 &'00 were the only years with the blue/black tank & fairing. Side panels and fender also. Standard Rallye light setup, tho. Rear swing looks right for a '99/'00. But yes, front forks & fender are later, '03? Or newer?
I seem to remember a few people did some welding/ fab work to run both, before the sw motech units were available.
The year 2000 models came from the factory with the side stand tab on the frame. As far as I know, no other years had this. I have a 99 that I put the DualStar kit on, which required welding a tab to the frame. The picture could be a 2000 converted to USD forks - the footpegs, engine, fuel pump look correct for that year, but the tank and front end do not - or it could be a different year with a welded-on tab.
My 01 has a factory provision for sidestand, utilizing one of the centerstand holes. It's an either/or affair.
