Sweet! I just rechecked it and the primary coil test reads .7 I checked with the leads touching each other and it read between .2 and .3 so it looks like that test is just about right since Im looking for .4 to .5ish. The secondary coil test give me no reading (OL). I tried it again directly to where the ignition wire connects to the coil with the same result so Im assuming this means the coil is bad? Im surprised that the bike runs at all this way. Does this make sense? Time to order a coil?

Hey guys,,a good friend,noninmate,just picked up a 2000 640ADV,and has been have'n problems with starting the bike.
For some reason the bike doesn't like to start unless he turns the idle way up.When he turns the idle up,it'll barely start.Then he gets the idle set and rides.Runs great,,,till you shut it off,and try and restart it.Then he has to turn the idle way up again to get it started.
Anybody have this problem?
Or what do you guys think?Valves maybe alittle to tight?
Or is there a common thing with these BST carbs??

So much for that, looks like the coil is good after all, I was using the meter wrong. Once I set it to 20K setting it read 12.73 which is within spec for the secondary coil. So, the coil is good, the carb seems good, the capacitor seems good. Ok guys whats next. Im all ears

What does your spark plug look like? Check that your choke (enrichment) cable is not adjusted wrong or bound up. How many volts does your battery have? Can you start the bike over and over with the E start? Still sounds like a fuel problem (too much gas) since it happens when it is warm.

How do you get off of that? Your bike, like mine, only has a center stand, and I can't figure out how to get off the bike with packs right in front and behind. Without just laying the bike on it's side, I mean.

Maybe I should be asking "just how tall are you?"

break down and buy an SW Motech sidestand from Twisted Throttle-it will make your life sooo much better! One word of advice with it is to seal up the hole in the bottom with silicone

Am I the only rider who steps onto the left footpeg to get on and off the bike when it's full loaded??? Am I dishonoring our dirt rider's breed? AM I TOO GIRLY TO BE PART OF ADVRIDER????
Please... tell me if I should buy an old little Vespa scooter... yes, those ones you can use a skirt with...

Seriously, since the first time I full loaded my bike, I felt using the footpeg like getting on a horse, was the most basic way to go (even though months later I added the side stand).

You are not alone, I do it the same way.. it seems my legs were shipped from the factory about 2" shorter than my 640's were designed for. (Loaded or Unloaded, it is way ez'r)

AMEN,
I just got mine on yesterday and i love it. I'll seal the hole asap - good advice.
I decided i had to have one as i had been getting on the bike while it was on the centerstand and then rocking it off forward. I was doing this in public the other day and a guy pulled up and asked "where do you put the quarters?".

That's fine, I just haven't figured out how to put the bike on the centerstand before I get off. Getting on is not the problem.

Ouch... yes! I was there too... sorry I forgot about it. Anyway, as you saw, I felt funny today... and your post gave me the space...

Do you remenber when we were kids, and we get off our bikes (a.k.a. bicycles) while still in motion? ok, I did that everytime I didn't find a
rock/slope/trunk/log where to step on... but I recognize it's not always comfortable. That's why I added the side stand as our inmate skibum has adviced.

Use your kick start lever to lift up on the bike when putting it on the center stand. Makes a perfect handle.
