    You want the best? One word - Renazco. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. I had one on my 640a, have one for my 530EXC and will soon have one for my 450RFR.

    Agreed, mine is more comfortable than the Corbin on my 1150, I still can't believe it!

    No problem. They are NLA from KTM so I will want it back eventually, but it is yours for as long as you need it.
    PM me when you are ready to go.

    Any chance you guys could drop a name/link to USA suppliers. I'm in the process of sourcing a new front rim to lace the original hub into. Thanks in advance. :deal

    Thanks Kev,

    Tried ringing you earlier. Finally getting the motivation back to start sorting out the bike after Marree break down. Just got off the phone to both Ash's and JTR, now trying to decide which way to go, 1.6/1.85, Excel/SM Pro?

    Have you used Munn's lately? Got on their site earlier and there's a note at the bottom of their home page saying they're not processing international orders or responding to O/S e-mails.

    Sorry mate did you ring from a private no? I had a missed call from a private no earlier.

    Anyway what I did I went 1.6 excel Sig series laced it to the existing hub but removed the left hand disc rotor & caliper etc, then fitted a new master cylinder from a 950 super enduro, works great & way less weight in the front, I like it alot better on dirt.
    As for Munns give Chip an email & see what he says.

    Oh & PM me you address & I will send you that rear spring.

    Cheers Kev

    A 2.15" rear rim on a 640a??? I thought the 640's use a 2.5" rear rim? Certainly you want a 2.5" rim for running the kind of tyres that suit the weight and power of a 640. I'm certain my 640a had a 2.5" rim when I bought it almost new and the spare wheel I bought was also a 2.5".

    yep 2.15 it is! diference between 2.15 and 2.50 is 9mm, This bike is mainly riden on single track and is stipped back to an enduro 90% of the time and runs 120/130 dirt tyres, A 2.15 rim can still have a 140 tyre fitted nicely like a MT21 or D908 to suit adv riding
