Late to the party but *subscribed*

I saw a few pages back you found a remote cold start (I'm assuming this I'd a choke) cable for your fcr. What's the part number on that and how much was it? I've been tweaking my hands trying to pull the stock one on my 620adv.

My adventure also had the dellorto carb stock. What did you do to the throttle housing to make the cables from you fcr work?

Originally I just mounted some screw on fittings, but I'm not happy with how that's working out. Did you drill out the threads and grind off the stop-tab in tube slot? I know you eventually replaced the throttle housing with a domino, what did you do with the starter/kill switches?

I used the original housing for the switches by sawing off the part for the throttle cables, here´s a picture:



Then I used Domino throttle housing for the fcr cables.

Actually I´m mounting a Scotts steering damper on my 660. I bought it in the US, but it had the wrong link arm, so I´m now waiting for a stepped one from Scotts-Performance



In 2 weeks we want to make a 200km roadbook tour in the netherlands, it sure will be fun and the first real test of my 660
Time for preparation is running away anyway, the baja 300 is in 8 weeks and I´ve done ...like .... 2 km on the bike

After waiting more than a month, my stepped steering damper link arm came yesterday
So now I got the cockpit complete, there is just the small issue that the steering damper is jolting the tank cap.

I did my first real ride with the bike today and it was quite fun
There were some problems with a carb and the engine just died while driving through a forest....
it took me countless kicks to get it running again, maybe there was a bit of water in it or something...

I just wonder how much power the db killer costs, because the bike behaves almost like my 640 Adventure.

Whatever ... I will use the next weekends for riding, riding and riding to get familiar with the bike and prepare for the baja 300 in early may.

I had a 2000 KTM Rallye 660, bought it from a dealer that was closing the business back in 2003:





Getting parts for it was too difficult.. I sold it before I messed up something that I couldn't replace...

It´s far more difficult if you own a >2001 Rally Replica.

For mine I´ve got some spare tanks and holders.
Ok, if i damage the exhaust system I´ll have a problem...
But other stuff like the alloy cockpit brackets can easily be made if you know some metal worker.

Try getting rubber parts like fork seals, bushings, grommets, etc.... ah well, you don't have USD forks..

BTW, I'd ditch those heavyweight mirrors on the handlebar if you keep riding off-road.

Did you end up fitting the 39mm fcr to the 660 or still got the dellorto?

I´m still using the Dellorto, I just want to do some riding now and not just staying in the garage all day ;)

I´ve done a bit of training for the Baja now, next weekend we will drive to the netherlands to do a roadbook tour

Does somebody of you know the original suspension setup of the 660 Rallye ?
I want to check if it is ok for my weight and so on ...

How did you go with the Koso gadget and getting better air/fuel mixes?

It was working good, it showed up the mix all the time and I could do some test rides with it, going 1/4, half, 3/4 and full throttle in 4th or 5th gear on a long straight country road. Afterwars I did some changes to the carb setup and tested again, till it was ok

The 660 Rallye carb was adjusted by Frauenschuh Tuning in austria

As a preparation for the Baja 300, we did a 200km roadbook tour in the netherlands last weekend
Here´s a short video and some photos. The bike runs good so far, I´ll do a bit more riding at the next two weekends before the race...
I think I´ll mount a new rear tyre and test the mousse also ^^

KartMan, you are having great fun with the setup and training stage, can you imagine how fun it will be during the Baja 300???

Video: somebody must tell your 2nd friend he better change to KTM... his white bike (Suzuki?) doesn't look to be a good narrow path crosser

Cheers, mate!

Actually it´s a bit frightening to think about the Baja
I couldn´t do much preparation due to the long winter and illness...So I´ll take it easy and try to get to the finish not being last or having big falls ^^
It´s my first real rally, so there shouldn´t be to much blind ambition... but on the other hand I´m taking part with a 660 rallye and can´t blame the glory of KTM rallye bikes

I wanted to order a new/spare rear Pirello Scorpion 140/80-18 yesterday, but they´re sold out

The white bike in the video is a KTM 620 LC4, at the next barrage crossing he dared to ride it
