Figured out my no start problem. When I swapped out the kill switch lever I accidentally bent the rotating contact plate. It was only making partial contact. Straightened it out and reassembled and now it works great!

This little bugger was the problem.





I also had a wire come loose in my ignition switch which explained my flickering lights. Lots of fun digging out the silicone I filled the switch with so I could solder it again. I got a much better connection this time. Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

So it wasn't turning over at all? Like, you hit the starter and... nothing happened. Right?

Yeah, totally misunderstood what you meant by "no start." But I'm glad you figured it out.

Here's a post with a shot of some old and new parts. Old worn parts show the hole for the needle terribly out of alignment. I'd imagine this would contribute greatly to the wear on the needle.

Thanks, Booni. New parts have been ordered, hopefully sorting the stalling problem out.

Exactly. Hit the starter and nothing happened. I must have bent the tabs when I put it together the first time.

ignition cover glass

hello i have a 2003 640 adventure that has a broken/knocked loose sight glass on the ignition cover. has anyone replaced one of these before? do they just push in by hand? do i need to bleed the oil again after taking this cover off? any help or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

also thanks for the rest of the red hot knowledge in this thread I've spent a couple hours looking around in here its awesome.

They just press in.

Make sure you use the right type of silicone sealer.
You want to use the "non vinegar" smelling ones.
I used some RV silicone and it started leaking again shortly.

As a matter of fact it started leaking badly on the way home from WV a couple weeks ago so I had to use some liquid metal putty from Wal-Mart in a pinch so I could get home.
I should have just fixed it properly over the winter.

As far as your oil question.
No you won't have to bleed the system again.
I laid mine on its side and took the cover off when I used the RV silicone,which you do not want to use.

The 648 is a retaining compound and is what is recommended to bond the glass in place {and also the waterpump seal}...

I pull the cover off the bike first as the sight glass seems to press in better from the inside towards the outside... I put the glass in the freezer, warm the cover with a heat gun, lay it on a block of wood, coat both surfaces with 648 and carefully tap the cover in place with a proper sized wooded dowel for a drift... The times I have tried to put the sight glass in from the outside inward it has tried to strip the gasket rubber off the outside of the glass...

640 top end rebuild

Hey folks,
I did a search and having problems finding the right place. I need a top end rebuild on my 06 640. Can I get some info as to the best place to send it to?
I won't be tearing into it myself. My mechanic will take it apart and ship it to the place with the best recommendations. Thanks so much. Atom..
