    The exhaust i bought is this one.

    KTM Alloy Factory Pipe marked SXC , paid 75 euros, off a 05 bike.

    I presume it will fit, or hope.

    Now I know this is coming Place in the KTM 640 Adv.
    Mine is a 03 , but i have been told be a friend, that if you fill the handle bars with Silicon, this stops the problem.

    Is this BS or is it true, is there another answer?

    Thank you in advance for the help.

    Fill 'em with Guinness and plug 'em with silicone... :evil

    I am thinking some of Loaded's bar-end weights would be the better choice.

    I used the silly-cone solution, because I am a cheap bastid and did not want to fork over the cheese for Loaded's product. Can't say which way would be better, but I know my penny-tech solution worked well.

    I have tried to fit the exhaust , a sxc competition from a 05 , to my 03 , and there seems to be a finger distance short between the connection from the new to the old pipe connection.

    Do i need another piece,


    Will it fit, and if what am i doing wrong?

    Help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Pictures would be very useful for this discussion, showing the mounting locations and such.

    They're up on my SmugMug site somewhere I'm sure. Grain surfboards are based in Maine if you want to look them up. White cedar. It's not quite done-just needs the gloss coat and varnish for UV. 10.0

    Howdy folks,

    I've got a 2001 640 LC4E with a Mikuni BST 40 and a Supertrapp exhaust and I want to tap into the tribal knowledge to find the "golden combination" of jetting, exhaust plates, and other tuning tips/tricks/procedures. Please tell me what has woked for you or point me in the right direction...

    I'm pretty sure it's running lean because the pipe is blue, so I bought the next size up main jet (stock for the Duke), figuring that would help. I'm open to getting a larger one if it's the right thing to do, but I'm not really trying to build a race bike - just something that will allow me to dominate the couple of miles of pavement between my house and campus. Once in a while I do some highway or logging road trips.

    I know this is a pretty basic setup so I've been reading threads for a couple of hours looking for enlightenment, but no real luck yet.

    Please, if you can, point me in the right direction or chime in about what has worked well for you.

    Happy Trails,

    Silas
