Thanks in advance
I spent quite a bit of time sorting out a replacement rim for the front of my 640. Check Woody's thread in Vendors for some details, including good photo's, on "indexing". You need to be aware that any old KTM rim may not work with the standard hub. The spoke lacing is different on the '05 640's to all (most) other KTM rims and this might be the case for other years. Ie an EXC rim will not lace to a '05 640 hub. Do your homework and speak/email Woody's wheel works. They know what they're talking about and are extremely helpful.
