Question 97 620 Adventure Farkle(s) question .....

Greetings everyone ......

I'm seriously considering procuring a 97 620 adv. w/only 6400 miles on the clock.

I've been checking around, and I know I can get pannier mounts from H & B - so my Gobi's on my 990adv will go right on ......

I also know I can get a number of parts from ktmworld.com

What I can't seem to find, and it may not be out there anymore, are engine guards like these;



I do have a welder / fabricator friend in town, that we could make some I'm sure ....

But does anyone know of any place I could just outright buy them at?

And - does anyone else have any other parts (or) farkle info they could pass my way.

The seller of the 620 has stated to me that a number of people put newer plastic on their 620s, and it requires some small mods, but with the guards, I'd think you'd have to stick to whatever frame mounting points there currently are on the bike.

Any info would be greatly appreciated .......

G.

have you seen the threads on the Holan crash bars (from Poland) - they are apparently shipping a redesigned set now that have not had the H&B problem with fatigue fractures, but they are new...

Plenty of farkle info in the LC4 index, you'll have to work your way down to the second and third parts for the less and less necessary stuff though.

Heya meat ...........

I'm about "this close" to pulling the trigger. And I'm pretty sure it's gonna happen .........

No - I didn't check out the thread on the Holan crash bars. But I will ....

Question for you - for subframe (front and rear) as well as mounting points for "things" how different is it between a 97 620adv and a 99 640adv?

Well the best way to answer that question is to check the parts fische for those two model years. Hopefully if they have the same P/N they are the same, but if they don't they may still be the same where you need them to be... some others on here might have your answer; have you posted in the older LC4 threads?

I am in similar shoes as I am looking for a cheap early Adventure right now. The subframe on the 97 is the one year that looks quite a bit different from 98 and up, as it has the additional support tubing.




But the later plastic will apparenlty bolt on if you use some spacers. I'd say with access to a welder none of the mods should be a big problem.

Sorry, the threads about older LC4s. There is at least one that's bubbled up to Page 1 recently.
