    Does anyone know if the 18 Lt tank from 620 would fit on the adv? I currently have also the 11 lt tank with its seat from a 640 E but would mount a 18 Lt

    Also depends on what seat you have. Fronts are different over some years.

    Cheers

    If you need new headlight wiring the shop to check was called "Eastern Beaver" (in Japan)

    https://easternbeaver.com/Main/main.html

    Stock wiring was undersized for the current needed for the bulbs; you could buy a kit from EB that went from the battery to the headlights with a relay for the switch. Easy to install (I did it).

    Thanks, Meat Pop. I had forgotten about Eastern Beaver. Good call.

    BDB5F688-EC3E-43EA-8F41-FAAED5E864FD.jpeg I’m finally checking in. I acquired this one in February ‘19. Needed the typical items addressed, but no surprises thanks to the index. Many thanks to all the inmates who have contributed to that! Fitted some new MC360’s and decided to do a short loop through Shasta Chappie between storms today.

    FYI to those of you looking for KTM parts - the old KTM dealer in Santa Cruz, CA (Moore & Sons, now an "e-bike" dealer) has some NOS KTM parts. Might be worth checking with them to see if they have what you need - you have to have the Part Number. I just bought a head gasket for my 03 off them.

    I must sadly report to the collective that my two 2003 640 Adventures got burned to ash in the fires in Australia on New Years Eve. They have gone to Bike Heaven, along with an EXTENSIVE spares inventory.

    Nothing remains except the frames and any steel bits, the rest is just ash.

    So the world is a slightly lesser place with them gone. Out of the nine bikes I lost, those two hurt the most by a LONG way.

    Take care of your own, they are becoming rare and harder to get. I will seriously miss my 2 magnificent KTM's.:cry

    I am lucky an Australian inmate has made a startlingly generous offer to get me back on one soon. The people here make this site.:raabia

    Vale.

    This one I bought from a good friend, the late great @Gwilli. A truly great bike. It ate deserts for breakfast. I will miss it as much as I miss the late @Gwilli, he was a truly great bloke.

    This was Ratty, my fun bike. Here he is wearing someone else's clothes. I had the full kit to return him to his full standard glory.

    Here he was wearing his own booties.

    A few people have contacted him after he closed shop, and he made it very clear that he’s out of the game. It’s too bad to. His products were pretty inexpensive for what you got. From anywhere else you’d be looking at least twice the price for a similar product.

    Here’s a pic of his carbon parts next to the standard OEM parts.

    A Rally Raid carbon-fibre low front guard burned and went to bike heaven as part of my 640 Adv spares inventory. Yet another thing I can't replace..........

    It was a solid piece of kit too.

    Hi guys, having a wiring issue with the 640ADV, brake light is getting feedback from the park circuit, so I have a bright park light and a not so contrasting brake light. I have checked back down the harness with no obvious issues, are there any known culprits or earth points that could be causing this? thanks for your help.
