Faark!

The first service on mine (2005 mod) was $80.

They only charged for Oil , Filters and Copper washers/gaskets.

This is the third KTM that I have bought off them , and they have never charged for labour on the first service.

Always thought It was a KTM backed thing , obviously not.

Wicked Advrider virgin / new guy

G'day all from the burnt land. I'll jump staright into it...
I am fairly new to all of this adventure stuff, only started with the off-road exploring for the past 5 of my 25 year riding history, but I'm making up time quick.
I own a 2 year old 2003 KTM 640 Adv with 50,000km on it, 20,000km unsealed.
Only a few mods...apart from the motards (talon/excel)
Home made rack (stock one is woefull)
Fastway pegs (stock ones are woefull)
Wings Superflow Titanium silencer
MSC stabilizer
stealth sprocket
small tankbag
Gearsack rear Dirtbag
Oxford sportbike saddlebags
misc. bit and pieces

I bought my first Wings silencer from Andrew at Adventurersworkshop after reading his threads here. I was so impressed with, I started importing them over a year ago, into Australia myself.
I'll plug my website www.mototoys.com.au (sorry) in the proper forum later. Now for the good stuff.

No, I think its that rare commodity ....'goodwill'. Still, now I have a couple of benchmark figures. Perhaps I could give them back the extra 40 psi they put in the tyres and receive a discount?

I have an idea where you could tell 'em to put the extra psi...

Here is my adventure bike

As you can see, she has the 19L tank, a 19", 17" wheel combo with TKC 80s, black powercoated rear subframe, swingarm and silencer. Rear fender is carbon fiber as is the fork protectors and light shroud. I pulled off the carbon front fender so it wouldnt get abused offroad plus I needed some orange on here to liven it up a little:

Two days later I collect the rear,another two days the front.Apparentlly making the stainless spokes and maching the brass nipples was no big deal but the man said truing them was the hardest time he had ever had in his thirty plus years of wheel building.Way,way harder than bmw gs wheels.
When I collected them I said I will run a few tyres then he can dismantle them so I can paint them for him to reassemble and I got the impression he is not overly keen on making a habit of doing these.But hey!I paid 180 per wheel and business is business.
The point of them is I wanted tubeless so I can use plugs for punctures,a 19/17 for tyre choice and I had a Berenger four pot and supermoto floater
to fit which because of the spoke angle I knew there would be clearance for the caliper although the performance of that brake setup turned out to be pretty crap which I am a bit baffled by.
Seems to me the 950 mob are desperate for something like these wheels.
For anyone interested in the 19/17 setup, I am running the same size TKC 80s on regular rims:

How about an E

Here's my 1999 LC4E. I've had it about a year and a half and it's been a good one. I've put 7000 miles on it, a little over 20K on the bike now, with no problems. Here's a few shots of the bike in the VA countryside.

A touch of 99' blue and orange...

Tis about time I posted in here, thanks to Scottmoto16 for finding this baby, I've had her about 5 months now, and I must say it's the most fun bike I've ever owned. Let the adventures continue....
