Handle bars KTM 625sxc...

hi there, posted this over on the Australian forum, but no answer..

does anyone know what the highest bars are for a KTM 625/640?


also what are the height of the standard KTM-Renthal bars on a ktm 625sxc? part number - 590 02 001 000. they are listed as KTM high bend.. is this from the Renthal Web site the same bar we are supplied by KTM on the bike?

Bar
Part no
Width
A
Height
B
Rise
C
Clamp area
D
Sweep
E
Control lgth
F

KTM HIGH
Renthal
826-01
805
95
68
130
42
180




The Travis Pastrana FMX Protapers seem the highest, but I suspect they are not much higher than the standard KTM high bars....

any tips on this? I have a top mount dampener, with a 12mm riser already and can't go much higher as I already have the longers damper pin. the next step I see is some higher bars.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

I have Windham fatbars on mine, which are installed via adapter that gives about a 1/2" rise. I then added another 1" riser so I'm up about 1 1/2" total. I'm afraid if I try to go much higher I'll run into cabling issues.

Hit it in both directions but drive it out the way you say. You may have to hit it a little hard. Worst case heat it and replace the ruber seals if needed. Using a heat gun would be nice, handy tool to have.

Maybe the chrome is gone on the bolt and you will need to replace it as well as the bearings.

At least you are in your shop, not...?

was told too question here

hopefully someone up in the b/trust sees this
my buddy g/friend "helpfully" pointed out my disc lock today and bammo i have now hit the thing twice this eve
upon rolling home from the last one a full takeoff to wreck on right side i find my 640 seems to die upon hard front braking.
i have had a couple hints of this before but now it's bad
as i see it my options are wait for whatever got in the wrong place to drain out and all will be better in morn
i set my float as per motolab rec's and i think he's on the low side of things
allthough he says i am 5 hp less than a similarly set up 640 which seem like a bit lame allthough it runs fine

i turned up the idle and will test tomorrow and see how it goes

on another subject if you know mapsource and g60csx's really well i will pay for your time to help me learn a few things
i have been all over the tutes but still have a couple simple questions about building routes trcing back on trails i have road and getting this crap in and out of the comp (pc)

Thanks for the tips, I'm known for applying excessive force so I've been gentle. I soaked it all day yesterday with penetrating oil, gave it a few "soft" taps with a brass drift and a 3lb hammer and worked the swing arm a few times. I'm off to work in a few so it will soak all day. I'll get the hammer and drift out tonight and take out some aggression on it! I just don't want to damage the bolt as it's over $30 and I doubt anyone has one in stock, I want to ride!

Bill, luckily I'm in the garage and not on the road

DJ has it right. It goes on the end of the flex handle, giving about 8" length, for more leverage if needed. The extensions and universal slide inside the conduit for storage.

If you get in a real bind I have a half used up spare I can loan out.

definitely have the KTM bug now

As a long time Euro bike owner, but no KTMs, I got my first KTM a few months ago to ride Colorado and Utah. Hence the 2000 640 enduro/adventure. She started life as an enduro but has the full adventure tank/seat/frame/fuel pump, etc setup. The day I got to the hotel in Colorado the Renazco showed up. Well, I was so pleased with it, I found it's brother the other day. A beautiful 2000 Duke II. super clean and tastefully modded, has a 670 big bore and 41 FCR carb to boot. What a friggin nice pair to have, only need the Multistrada to haul the wifey around

I used this thread quite a bit to get the adv up to snuff for the trip, so thanks to all those who have contributed over the years.

So my bike has no spark? I replaced plug, and the wire looks good. Ignition coil next? Is it common for these to quit working? I never had 1 go bad before.

Queenofspades recently had a trigger failure. It's little jobbie that tells the computer when to fire. The wires to her's were cracked right at the sensor.




Here's her thread.

replacing parts until you find the broken one can be pretty expensive.

chain and sprockets

Hey Everyone. Looking to replace the chain and sprockets on my 06 640.
Any info on the best place to buy the the basic chain and steel sprocket. Don't need anything fancy. I'm running 15/42
Also any recomendations for buying replacement bearings for the 640 swing arm assembly.
Thanks so much...

The rear shock lower (& I think the top too) spherical bearings are KTM specials. The rest of the needle roller bearings & the seals are a common size & should be available cheap at your local bearing shop, I use SKF.

Cheers
Clint

PS that is a very cute couple ya got there Baggitard!

Top shock eye is really more of a multi-axis bushing. Mine squeaked until I lubed it.
