I've been investigating various sites for this information.

Now that Creeper has confirmed what others have said, I'll carry out the modifications. Thanks man.

Have fun,

Thanks for the info creeper! Any advice for a 2000 640sm? I know it is a dumb question but I just picked one up for street comuting and could use any advice. The bike is 100% stock.

my IDS2 pops but I think its because the midpipe (that came with the can but is made for a different year LC4) doesn't seat well with the header. I need some copper-something or other to seal it up I hear. Maybe you are right but what does that air injection port supposed to do?

PS - I see the doctrine of pre-emption is catching - good application here creeper! I suppose we could bump this one until it makes its way into the League of Justice... no that's the Bowels of Iniquity, um, no it's something catchy though.

What Happened!!!!

I started doing my mods yesterday morning & finished everything up with unbelievable results. She's a new bike from idle to WFO. First, almost all vibes are gone with the completion of mods & most importantly the fine tuning. Power, wow, night & day, apples & oranges nuff said. One major thing for me is i want the bike as quite as possible, with the exhaust mods it barly raises the noise level which is great here in So Cal. I bought the bike for the purpose of forest road adventure (quiet is king), along with long distance rides with no gas worries, in this day & age of tree huggers & back country activist i find it imparative that we be as stealth as possible in order to keep our roads & trails open for us, if they don't hear they can't complain about you. Anyway, thanks to Mr.creeper & all how have tested by trial & error to obtain optimum preformance from these incrediable bikes. Austrian Art or jap crap, you make the call!

Do all the same stuff, but start out with a 150.0-152.5 main jet and maybe go up one on whatever pilot jet (prolly a 45) you have. Not real sure on which hi-flow aorbox cover you use... I think the same as Adventure.

Anyone else have better info for Joe?... Dirt, you know?

The pilot in an 00 is a 42.5. Like Creep said, go to the 45. Also change the main as mentioned above. The air box screen is the same as on the Adventures and as mentioned in other threads, core out the silencer or change it completely. I've heard great things about the "Wings" silencers.

A 42.5 huh? I thought it might have a 45 stock. No matter... go up one from what ever the hell it is.

Tool or Technique?

Creep,

Maybe I need more coffee (always a safe assumption) but how does the idle mixture adjustment differ if one HAS Allah's-own 90deg MP carb screwdriver?

I adjusted the wife's 03 successfully- after going thru 1/2 doz different McGyvered screwdrivers and about 3 finger tips and swore I'd never do it that way again; hence my looking thru the MP catalog over the weekend.

Awaiting the delivery of a nicey sparkly-orange '05 640 Adv...

its one that is adjustable with your thumbs. tried the stock with the engine hot and a small screwdriver and couldnt get it done. i guess one of those 90 degree screw drivers would be the best setup. bought one for my 450 and it works fine in the 640 too. its a bit sensitive but i have it dialed in real close.
