640 High Fender

After checking the thread index, I'm still stumped. Is the front end of an '06 640 the same as a 950 adventure and will the Touratech perpetually
sold out high fender kit fit it? Thanks and sorry if this has been hashed to death.

From Sommer KTM on-line.



Wordlingo translation:
Who moves its Adventure 640 with low fender in the extreme area (deep mud), can a high fender install.
The set consists of the fender highly, second brake hose, Gabelschuetzern, Cultivation material and assembly (summer KTM upper living).
There is the fender in different colors: orange, silver and black.

Creeper, this is the text from the pic above translated thru Babelfish:

I have read several times that the lowboy fender brings that very word to mind... at all the wrong times.

Anyways, sigsauer, I can't answer your question definatively. I have read several times that the 04 and onwards 640a front end is the 950s but I haven't read any confirmation. Did you ask the folks at Touratech directly?

I am about 99.99% sure the high fender kit would fit the 640. Go to the Orange Crush board and do a search on the subject because someone has a list of parts that you can source from any of the KTM parts suppliers that will save you a little money and will not be back ordered. I have the Touratech high fender kit on my 950S and was not impressed with the mounting brackets for the lower slider guards. The KTM parts sourcing made use of fork slider protectors for one of the KTM minis. Like a 65SX or something.

When you do, be advised that the holes on the listed 85 SX fender guards do not line up perfectly. The third hole on the back becomes useless.

I jsut installed the high fender on my 950 and used the 85SX guards. Works, but not a prefect fit. I also just changed to one disc up front until I get a custom made brake line this week.

Second problem is how to attach the right side hose to the guard...I am still pondering that one, but will more than likely drill 2 small holes and use a wire tie.

My dealer informed me that KTM is selling a high-fender kit for the 950, since February if I remember correctly (not for the 990 which already has two brake lines). I asked him if the kit is suitable for my 05 640 Adventure and the answer was yes. The kit contains fork protectors, high fender, brake line and mounting materials. Now, this is in Europe, but you should ask your dealer. I'll probably order one for myself next month or so.

Easy Single Disc Solution

Ok Guys the easiest way is to use a 950 super enduro master cylinder it fits straight on has the correct bore for the caliper and you don't need to change the brake pipe as its the same angle as the standard one, the feel is fantastic, its the best mod I have done so much safer both on and off road especially in the wet , no more locking up the front end and aggressive fork diving. oh I forgot to mention the master cylinder is only about 56 so a cheap mod
