    Thanks Meat! :D

    Well me and the family have plane tickets already. Have to show off mini-meat to the northern horde (arrrrr!!!) in Seattle (my ole haunt) and Vancouver BC (the Canadians). And since I have seen him less than you (2 days vs. none), I thought I'd better say hello.

    I did try to get up to your place this weekend, but as you read my mother decided she was going to stay into this weekend (visiting from Seattle) and mrs. pop's uncle is visiting today (going back to Okinawa so...) - so we are off to more family today.

    Besides we are all sick. Are you sure you don't want me to stop by and share my cooties? :deal

    not if you set the CP to auto subscribe to every thread you post in and religiously unsubscribe from the garbage (well, almost, there was some digging).

    still more to do, I am sure there are oversights and lil' tidbits that need to be in there. so send em to me and I will throw them in! over time it will be refined into something better and better.

    i have a life, what i need is a busy, challenging job :lol3

    thanks for all the nice comments folks! :wave

    Awesome stuff. I'm flattered that some of my posts have been deemed worthy of inclusion. :D I see you've got the 640 Enduro stuff heading mixed up with the Controls, Bars etc category though.
    Reminds me actually, I'd better get some paint & put another coat on that radiator guard sometime, & now I'm living above a light engineering workshop I should get around to making an engine guard & start exploring the other possibilities that machine tools, TIG welders etc etc open up.

    Cheers

    Wow Meat, you've excelled! This could be the birth of the 640ADV FAQS; just a thought, maybe you could add the phrase "FAQS" to the title to provide another unique search string for google, - guess I'm thinking of the f650faqs thingy - what do you think? :ear

    What about a couple of extra links to preferred tools? Also to the group purchase/manufacturing projects? Now where's that link on the Centrestand bracket..?

    Well, FAQS would imply just that, "The Facts", and I guess I didn't feel qualified to author a FAQ on the LC4. However, with the help of one of The Goodfellas I am trying to steer this index in that direction. I will add some statement to that effect that will include the term FAQS which should be enough to allow searches to that effect. We'll see.

    Thank you for the tips! What do you mean by "preferred tools"? Links to KTMTalk, ThumperTalk, or maybe KTM parts suppliers or parts fiche online? :ear

    There are some group mfgs. on their, tank guards (is this one?), rallye skidplate boxes, passmore's centerstand bracket is there, others? :ear

    Gotcha. There is some of that stuff in there but maybe the organization could be better. Work in progress.

    I had trouble finding that myself the other day when someone asked about fitting soft bags, It's here , I also added in the more detailed explanation of how they were made that I had posted in a different thread.

    Cheers

    its added under enduro with the rest of your stuff, although I think those might work with the other LC4 models too, so, hm, more organization stuff to work on :bluduh
