No, I ended up buying another socket.
Don't think mine was for an LC4, it wasn't even close.

laters,

Ok I am missing a couple of these tools (3rd owner) and apparently, the kit is no longer stocked. No problem, I will build my own. I have the purty orange bag, the pliers, t-handle with 8, 9 & 10 mm sockets... That's it; nothing else. (Come to think of it, I don't have the storage tube for said tool kit either!)

Those lucky enough to possess the missing tools, please clarify what (sizes) so I can ensure I equip myself.

I see a double ended wrench, a bottle opener / wrench combo, and a plug wrench... Sizes?

Appreciate the intel gents!

Question Speaking of 640 tools...

... it got me thinking! I am curious to hear what tools and spares you fellow 640 owners carry with you:

1. On a day / long weekend ride;

2. Extras you add for multi-day rides, say a week or two, like portions of CDT or TAT (North America)?

(Not including medical or camping gear - just tools and spares).

Not sure if this is appropriate here or if it has been asked before (pardon my ignorance in advance), but I wanted to hear specifics from owners of 640's - to determine if there are any special needs to accommodate these bikes.

I carry my personal goods in a tank bag (papers, medical kit, glasses, etc.) and have a rear fender rack with a Wolfman tool roll that straps on to it. I can also wear my fanny pack tool belt to add space / distribute tool and spare weight across two areas. For multi-day rides, I have a Giant Loop Coyote Saddlebag - mainly used for clothing with camping stuff on top in waterproof bags.

Thanks again fellow 640 owners!

Dean

In my part of the world 'crescent' is used to refer to an adjustable wrench

The double ended ring spanner thing for the axle nuts is only marginally useful. I carry wrench/tire iron combos separately instead. The std screwdriver I got with mine isn't the strongest either, I have a few 1/4" hex screwdriver bits & 3,4,5mm hex bits plus an adapter to drive them with the t-handle.

Spark plug sizes can vary, std is 16mm IIRC but these are often replaced with a bigger nutted one (18??) as they are more common, (could be variation over different years too) but this means you need quite a skinny sided socket, check what you have.

In addition to that I carry 8, 10 & 13mm ring/open end wrenches, a 12/14mm combo open end wrench, & a lil pair of vice grips.

Apart from the tire irons as mentioned that all goes in the std tool tube, just. I have an extra expedition expansion pack with extra tools & spares for when I'm venturing far from home.

Cheers
Clint

The small bag...
tire irons in the tube bag...
the big bag has sockets,more wrenches, spoke wrench, valve tools, misc tools.







Gone back to the regular pliers suppliedin the OEM kit.
Plug wrench missing from this picture.
New leather tool bag made by the Amish.
Gave my bottle opener to a Russian in Vladivostok...he was overjoyed, I don't/can't drink.

Tank to exhaust clearance 2003 640 adventure

Does anyone run a full Akrapovic exhaust on a 640 adventure? I have a 2003 and the tank only clears the header by about an 1/8th of an inch. inspecting other bike pictures online looks like they have a few inches of space. Im only concerned because it looks like the bottom of the tank that comes so close has started to melt a little bit. I removed the tank to look for a bent bracket or other cause but everything seems straight. Im stumped as to why the pipe would be so close to the tank? Was the Akrapovic system really designed to be that close to the tank? Any help would be much appreciated

Question Torque settings

Gentlemen,

Putting in a new clutch this week.

Since I can't seem to find the answer can somebody please tell me what ft. Lbs. for the clutch spring bolts are?

I am guessing 7 ft lbs. with red lock tight?

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you.

MXChamp- Red will get you into trouble-too strong.

Please use a blue threadlocker for the clutch basket bolts and let it sit overnight if possible before oiling it up and going out for a ride.

Thanks Dirty! You're the best!

Blue it is at 7 ft lbs! She will sit over night no problem. Have a CS seal leaking as well. The seal is going in Friday!

Question 640 tool carrier

Thanks for your input on the tools and spares!

Next Q: Did your 640 come with the tool carrier under the side panel? Mine (2007) didn't; I was hoping I could get the dimensions so maybe I could fab one. Measurements, pic would be great if possible. This will create tool and spare space so I can redistribute things...

Or if someone could point me to a website where these (or something similar) are sold, it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dean

Hey Dean;

Watch using and putting tools in that tool carrier.....they are known to depart the bike!

Cheers

Hmmmmmm... Noted! Perhaps less important stuff? What do you carry in there - how big (long) is it?

Any way to better secure stock carrier? Suggestions?
