2013 mexican 1000 ktm 640 adv build

We have decided to race the NORRA MEXICAN 1000 once again in 2013. This time we will be bringing bikes.

Last year we had the incredible generosity and support from a group of riders based out of San Diego area. They brought bikes, chase truck, mechanics, beer, food and good times along with them. I owe 2012's race to all those that helped out.

2012 we raced two '90's XR 600's and a 2008 KTM 530 EXCR. The first XR crapped out on the transfer after the first test on the first day. The other 2 bikes make it all the way to the finish. We learned alot over those 4 days.


In the name of comfort and reliability, I sought the advice of Mark (Baja Dad here), and he said, get a 640 KTM adventure, you will love it for this type of race. So when I got back home, the search was on.

I found a 2006 640:

Less than 2500 miles on it
Rally Raid Tires
UHD TUBES
FMF Q4 Can
Shark Fin Rear Brake Guard
Full Skid Plate
Kickstand

Price was right and it is now in the garage, looking pretty much BRAND NEW.

Here is the list of UPGRADES planned:

CUSTOM SEAT
FLEXX BARS
STEERING DAMPER
BAR RISERS
LARGER PEGS

ROADBOOK READER
ICO
MOUNT FOR ABOVE
GPS BACKUP

MODIFICATIONS:
2 ROTOR FRONT BRAKE- DELETE ONE ROTOR AND CALIPER FOR USE ON DIRT.
FCR 41MX CARB/CABLES INSTALL (COMPLETED ALREADY- it RIPS.)
SNORKLE REMOVED FROM INTAKE
SIDESTAND DELETE
PASSENGER PEG DELETE
FRONT AND REAR BLINKER DELETE
Suspension- respring at minimum
Rear Wheel needs another Rim Lock

I'll post pictures as soon as I get to my computer of the progress so far.
