    I'm going to attempt to copy Meatpop's idear for an index relative to the KTM 690. I suppose for now we can keep all 690 info indexed here.

    Because Meat did such a stellar job compiling and maintaining his Index I'll copy some of his methods for familiarity and standards. Yeah Henry Ford!
    There is a ton of info that applies to both the 640 and the 690 so I'm copying over what I see in the 640 Index into this one. If you disagree or think something else should be included speak up!

    All External Links are marked with the following red note. External Links! AdvRider is not responsible for anything at these links; proceed at your own risk.

    Also, please be aware that this is not a FAQS page. Although QA/QC edits are ongoing in an attempt to not lead anyone astray, people should use their best judgment and if in doubt ask questions! The point of this thread was not to make questions unnecessary; the point is to help end the relentless search for "those" thread links. If you disagree with an inclusion, submit your complaint to the committee.

    NOTE: If you can't find something you are looking for, please post your request to this thread and we will try and help you find it. If it is not indexed, then start a thread in Thumpers to fill the void. One tip for searching this thread, try using your web browser’s page search function (usually pushing CTRL and F at the same time will bring it up, or try the Edit menu on the toolbar) - it will save you some time. Another suggestion is this: CLICK HERE and then add your search terms to the search and Google will only search this site. It is a great tool for searching this site with 3 letter terms.

    Oh yeah, and one other thing that might help us help you: Hi n00b, welcome to ADVrider. Got a question do ya?

    now no secrets loaded, we're upstairs... :uhoh

    Nice start brandt. Long ago, Creeper recommended that each thread get a blurb so that folks have a better idea about what a thread contains. It's probably too late for the 640 Index... but you might consider his idea.

    Would you consider:

    Competition Use Only category
    1) Cannisterectomy
    2) Injector settings
    3) Exhaust mods
    4) Suspension settings (enduro, desert, etc.)

    This is a great start! Thanks for putting it together.

    Is anyone working on retrofitting a back up kick starter?

    Would that be really difficult to do?
