My 640 is running, smooth & strong , I sparked it back up last week, done about 300km on the rebuild now & it is going very nicely. Hopefully all good for another 6yrs of fun.

Cheers
Clint

Thumb Cool Rallye Cockpit

Pablo - saw your bike in the flesh today - looks cool - momentarily thought such a cockpit would look good on my 1150 - then realised that bike and rider would remain unchanged

Mate, its not out of need I'd done it ... purely cause I like it ... so you can do it on yours without need to adjust rider not that you need it. I've seen you going to the same places I had been and heard of you going to many more

One day may be able to get a real rally bike in the meantime I customise what I have. Also have fun in the process learning to do some things and to work on the bike.

The copkit is temporary. I need to get a better version of the bracket, with better holding for the fairing, speedo, also plastic weld lateral holding points, etc ...

Side support for the fairing

Next on my list is to plastic weld the side support for the fairing, to enhance stability ...


this is first plastic welding I do on something real so won't be great but hopefully will do the job

Looking good, I love the colour scheme. Makes me wish my bike was white so I could do something unique.

Does look good, you need some blue/red/white white fork guards to finish off

Lots of frontal white is also great for visibility.

Cheers

Airbox cleanup

This is the airbox with the two top covers removed. I actually don't have the inner cover



Top removed, after 10 bolts out

The inside is relatively clean, not so the butterfly

Kutch Hardparts

Kutch designed hard parts to cover pegs, rear brake and frame. I had the design file gently sent by Kutch and got a few made.

Cheap fuel tank 1galon almost 4 liters = over 100K

On one of my trips I was alone so wanted to have some more fuel range. Not that is often needed over here but just for peace of mind. I normally get over 200K of 9.3 ltrs so figured with 4 more would get around 300 ...

Rear swing arm dissasembly

In my previous bike had trouble with swingarm bearings, thus I decided to check this one just in case. They where fine.

Remove shock, bolt

Remove left side cover, those ones can be problematic cause they're little


And out


Bushes, bolts and tools


Right bearing

Bushes, and the rear swingarm "axle"
