How do I run hi fender dual disc 640 brake lines?

How do I run/get hi fender dual disc 640 brake lines?


The stock Brake crossover line is too short for a high fender setup and I want to keep dual discs.

Is there a longer right caliper cable available from Ktm and if so how to route it?

The touratech kit comes with one.
A bit pricey but its a plug and play.

Maybe the PDF instructions will give you some ideas

Yowza,that is pricey. I bet Spiegler Performance can custom make one to work. I had them make one for my LC4E because the stocker was a bit short with risers and a Lynx. Real trick. You will need to call them to place the order, but you can get a quote through the interweb. The man I talked to even had an LC4 SMC. Also, the orange is a good match.

If you have to have one made, I recommend Royal Brass in San Jose... they do real nice custom orders!

I remember someone (Pyndon maybe?)

Another option.

second filter cover gasket

I got those pesky o-rings in the carb to bite I posted about a little while back, just a little organic spit lube and they squeezed in and stayed.

Now I just drained the oil out, checked Creeper's how to, everything is good except one thing. The 2nd filter cover is supposed to have a gasket right? There was none when I pulled it off? When I looked it up in my pdf maintenance guide and the parts fiche online I'm finding different answers for what should be there. I have an 03, should I get the o-ring and gasket or just the gasket for the second filter cover? There is no groove for an o-ring but the maintenance manual states there is, but online fiche diagrams only show the gasket?

Guess you already know, but you should have a double feed bolt on one of the calipers. When you get the new hydraulic lines (or are you really converting to cables ), just swap the master bolt with the double caliper bolt.

Thanks for the tip! I actually need 2 single bolts now, 1 for each caliper, then if I want switch to my off road single disc wheel I can just run 1 single bolt off the master.

The tourtech kit kind of sucks. The guides are flimsy and the mounts to adapt the fork guards to the fork legs are even cheesier. Both of mine fell apart just installing them then one broke trying to put it back together.

There is a parts list I believe in the Orange Crush section or check KTMtwins.com or ktm950.info - The guards from one of the KTM 85cc minis work for the lowers and if you buy a second lower cable guide and install it upside down under the existing guide, you'll have that covered.

You will need a 2nd full length brake line from a 950/990. Remove the banjo bolt/washers from the left caliper to install the brake lines to the master cylinder. Then use that master cylinder bolt to fasten the left line back to the caliper. All you will need to do is hose clamp an upper guide to the right fork leg to keep the right line moving vertical and put a loop in the line so it can bend and flex as the wheel moves through the travel.

You will also need to make a fastener for the right leg to attach the right brake line t the guard

And of course, a fender

Actually

I'm doing all this for 1997 620 Adventure Rally build. Found a Euro model w original KTM Dakar motor w 325 miles!

I bought a 2007 640 48mm dual disc front end and RTT triples w built in stabilizer. Now i have a single disc front wheel and the dual disc I can swap fairly quickly.

The flat gasket supersedes the o-ring style, if your cover has no grove for the o-ring some one has replaced it. When you say there was no gasket when you pulled it off, what was used? silicone? RTV?

well i pulled the trigger on the seat concepts foam and cover. Got the grip top, carbon sides, and orange stitching. Pretty excited! Read quite a few good reviews on them.

Still really trying to find a speedo though, I hate trail techs and want mechanical.. I found a Duke 2 speedo, will this work?
