KTM 640 ADV Question about tank/fairing.

Yes I did search the Index LC4 post but couldn't find the info.
I currently have a KTM520EXC and I am thinking of changing to a LC4 type Engine for longer range stuff.

I really like the 640ADV, but I do some really nasty stuff sometime.
I was wondering if you can fit the LC4 Enduro or SXC tank on the 640ADV, most likely a 2003 (newer design and single front rotor) but I would look for a 1999+

I know I can fit bigger tank on the Enduro or SXC but I like the fairing of the ADV.

Also, can you easily remove the fairing and gauge on the ADV to fit a simple headlight.

If these 2 things can be done, anyone wants to trade a Super nice 520EXC CA legal for a 640ADV ?
Thanks
Christian

You might do a search - there's been some discussion of this in the past. Mostly it was folks wanting to fit the Adv fairing to a standard Enduro, not the other way around.

I recall the general concensus was that it was possible, but not economic or very feasible for going back and forth. I believe the two bikes have completely different front subframes, so you'd basically have to swap entire front ends with all the bits and pieces having to go back and forth (including all the electrics, radiator mounts, fans, etc.).

I was just hoping to swap the tank
then remove the fairing/light/odo/speedo and replace with an enduro aftermarket headlight type .

I did the headlight part on a NX650, shouldn't be that bad to do on a 640ADV...

Anyone in the bay area / redwood city willing to show his bike for me to check it out ?
Thanks
christian

rocamojo's suggestion about getting the suspension setup by a pro is (literally) EVERYONES suggestion.

christian,

See THIS thread. You might want to ask Young Gun 640 how the big tank is mounted to his bike w/out the fairing assembly.
