Hi Guys, I opened this thread to ask question about the preparation of my 2004 KTM Adventure 640 R for Tuareg Rally in march 2013. I just bought this bike the 24'000km on the clock and I don't know anything about the history of the bike. I found out 2 problems: -the neutral switch is sometimes difficult to find with then engine one, and the light doesn't stay on when i am in neutral. I can see it flash when I go from neutral to first or second gear and same on the other way round. What could it be? -When I start the engine, with the choke on, if I try t o give some gas, the rpm goes down! If I wait a few minutes then the motor runs normally. I am thinking about lowering the bike with one of the lowering kit. What experience do you have with it? I would feel more confortable on difficult sections if I can have my boths feets completely on the ground. And for the air filter, does some of you have experience with Unifilter? It's an Australian brand sold by Touratech. PRetty expensive, but for desert racing, I suppose I shoulnd not spare on this if it's better than the original.
