Mileage

Total on bike 13,000 miles, over 10,000 this year (I bought the bike used a year ago). 2003 640 Adv. Not a single problem other than a loose wire in a connection that caused the bike to misfire for awhile and then die entirely. Was able to diagnose myself and has run smoothly ever since.

'99 LC4 in supermoto trim. Ran for 23300 miles (37500km) then self-destructed.
Still figuring out what went wrong, but consensus is crank pin failure.
Work done: fork seal + pitted stanchion replaced, snapped chain and replaced the 'bearing of doom' preventatively (even though it's not an 02 model). Starter motor on the way out (worn brushes). And replaced sidestand spring after I trashed it by kickstarting with the stand down.

02 Adv, 32k kms.

Water pump
Base gasket
main bearing
couple of oil leaks
Keeping the fastener shop in bidness replacing bolts it loses.

New ugly sound in motor, suspect big end conrod bearing. Gotta tear it apart.

Issues. Always issues. Can't ride it more than a thousand k without having to fix it. Fun to ride when it's running.

If I had the money, it'd be gone. Very disappointed in the cost of ownership with this thing.

Stator clutch

Is the stator Clutch a problem with the 640 LC4 engine? I have an 03 and my mate has an O3, on the weekend we pulled up for a chat and went to ride off again, when the mates bike wouldn't start, the starter would just make a wizzing sound. he then kick started the bike, which fired just fine. Then a crack appeared in the stator cover and oil came rushing out. We pulled this cover off and there were five hex head bolts which were sheared off. Can any one shed some light on what happened and why?????


Regards,

JM

Just looked at the engine parts manual & it looks like the bolts that hold the one way starter clutch to the flywheel have broken/sheared. Best guess would be that they have somehow come loose allowing freeplay betwen starter clutch hub & flywheel. Eventually the bolts have sheared off & caused the damaged you described. In hindsight if you had not kickstarted the bike but pulled the cover off you could have removed the broken bolts before they wedged & broke the casing. Who would have guessed huh?

This has nothing to do with the standard clutch noise... if you don't have accuarate or relevent input - then don't
