Mine has always been stuffed with tools & has been fine over lots of miles. I've had to repair & strengthen my subframe though! My tool tube mount tabs look to be welded on pretty good. Others obviously haven't been. It would be a simple matter to weld a chunk of flat on over the tabs & along the tube which would add lots of strength. If you ever carry much luggage on rough roads it would be worth getting stuck in & reinforcing the subframe at the same time, see here

I kinda like the stock tool tube as it isn't too visible, something bigger would be good though, one day I'll probably make up something like Gunner's nice one above but I'd want to make it lockable.

Cheers
Clint

Thanks for the pick overland,
the tank has two "humps" the larger one towards the front and the smaller one towards the rear. It is touching at the smaller hump towards the rear on the header pipe. Ill get some pics up as soon as i get the tank back on ive been slammed with work.

Gentlemen,

Give me your thoughts?



Too rich, too lean?

Put the new FMF Q4 on about 500 miles ago.

The bike runs excellent!!

Spark plug did have about 5000 total miles on her.

Start with a new plug it has deposits from crap gas over the last 5k miles(all gas is crap now days). Otherwise looks ok. Not black like it's rich, not white like it's lean. You should be in a safe zone.

Thanks. Put new plug in.

Crappy photo from my phone. Couldn't get the thing to focus where I wanted it too.

If the price is good if jump on it sm wheels with the front 20mm hub are pretty rare. They usually either have a 17mm axle or 26mm axle.

Seller just told me that they have a 26mm axle, same as on my bike, so hopefully will have no problems with the front, are there clearance issues in fitting a 5" wheel in the swingarm?

Nasty pic!!
As a historical record of past tankfuls IMHO the color of the plug looks good.

I'd take it.

640 swing arm help

Hey folks,
When my 2006 640 Adventure is on it's center stand and I grab the rear wheel, there is a little bit of play in the Swing arm.
My local shop quoted me $800.00 to fix the problem. Seems rather steep to me.
Is this a job I can easily do myself or is the $800.00 quote there for a reason?
Any help is appreciated. About to do the TAT and dialing in the bike.

Wow That sounds really high. Everybody's mechanical skill and comfort levels are different, but normally it is a job that can be done with the normal garage tools and only minor skills.

Parts are probably about half that cost or more based off msrp that the ktm shop will probably charge. If you order online from powersportswarehouse.com or munnracing.com it will be less. The reason I suspect the quote to be as high as it is, I'd because they quoted you to change the swingarm bearings and sleeves, the linkage(cheaper to buy linkage with new bearings than buy bearings and replace them in your old linkage), and the bearings in your frame that the dog bones connect too. Any or all of those bearings can be the cause. The suspension link is just under $200 and swing arm is just under a $100. I'm not sure the cost of the link bearings in the frame. Also they maybe changing the shock hiem. If you can isolate which bearings are causing the issue it will be exponentially cheaper. You should be able to replace pretty much all of the bearings yourself with a vote and the right combination of sockets. As for the link bearings I'm the frame it might require some creative solution with a combination of threaded rod, washers, and sockets? I have the same problem and replaced the swing arm bearings for it, $80 later I had exactly the same results. Good luck let us know which route you go.
