Copenhagen!!!

Hi guys... Need a little help here. Is there any big motorcycle/touring/motocross accessories shop in copenhagen? Do the KTM dealer in Copenhagen keep lots of powerparts powerwear stocks in their shop. Im also looking to try on a UVEX enduro carbon helmet if they have it in copenhagen. Any tips would be great. Thanks.

640 ADV passenger peg assemblies

I've got an '06 640 ADV that I'm in need of passenger peg assemblies. Anyone out there have a set that they'd be willing to part with? And / or anyone that might know where I can buy a new complete kit instead of sourcing all of the individual parts off the OEM fiche?

Fasst Bars

Has anyone fitted a set of Fasst Flexx bars to their 640A? Had a set on my Banshee a few years back and they were fantastic.

Any feedback would be great as I'm thinking of getting a set.

Cheers.

Had some question for everyone. I'm looking at joining the ktm 640 adventure club and was hoping for some insight as to whether this would be good for my type of riding. I currently ride an xr 600 with a ims 4+ gallon tank. I mainly ride dual sport roads and some more technical stuff in northern wisconsin.
My concern really is the weight. What are your thought, oh the bike is an 2003 ktm lc4 adventure.

Thanks

Polson, I fully agree with Mxchamp.
Let me tell you the KTM vs the XR600 is a Ferrari vs a Daihatsu, there are no comparing points!
And if your concern is about weight, as I remember the XR600 is a very heavy one, although I can't remember how many kilos... but I think the 158kgs + fluids of the KTM 640 can't be far (if not under) from the XR600's weight... shoot and ride it

Which LC4 for me ?

Which pre-owned well cared for LC4 for me . I have five years of progressively aggressive riding on 70s-90s standards (400 - 800cc twins)... 75,000kms - 32" in-seam.

Province: Nova Scotia... that's on the east coast of Canada - just above the USA !
Roads: Urban / sub-urban /two lane hwy / country and coastal routes / some trail / occasional 'looks-like-a-trail-let's-see-where-it-goes'
Road Conditions: Couple of smooth ones, but mostly with lake sized pot holes, mountainous frost heaves - oh and covered in sand and salt half the year
Weather Conditions: Fog, Rain, sleet, hail, snow... bit of sun now and again
Mileage: 12k kms per year
Riding Range: 300km radius
KTM Dealer: 20 minutes cross town in light traffic
Wrenching skills: I can spell wrenches... just don't have any - or the inclination to use them if I did.
Storage cases: Yes... bigger the better - always hauling stuff
Heated grips: Please
Budget: $5,000

01 - 04 Adventure with 30-50k kms?

There is a buyers guide & much more in the index thread if you haven't found that yet.

The LC4 got a few upgrades in 03 that are nice to have.

Do some research on the common issues, even good KTM shops may not have seen many LC4's & won't know much about them.

At 30-50K km I would do some maintenance on a used bike; water pump rebuild, cam & follower bearings, new starter clutch, service the suspension & linkage. Maybe give the carb a check, clean & service. The good news is once you've done all that you should be good for another 30-50K without much more than oil & filter changes & a few valve clearance checks.

If you are carrying lots of stuff over rough roads look into reinforcing the subframe. It's not complicated.

Cheers
Clint

Thank you for the link and all the helpful tips Clint... researching underway - just making sure I've identified the right model for my usage. IMHO I've ruled out the Duke, SM & Enduro to focus my search on 640 Adventures.
