Maybe I'll even throw you a few extra to send some to ChrisC. Maybe. Seems he needs a little of "the good stuff" to pretty up that picture of his.

EDIT: Of all the tangents this thread has taken, this one is the best. I've always got time for booze talk.
First shipment goes out to skibum & cris on monday....for free.
If they approve the quality...we'll continue spreading the goodies for the price of shipment, when i run out on my stash...we'll see.

The guy on Chris's avatar seems like preparing to drink something....from the carb.....hmmm, rakija under pressure from the carb...hmmmm, see ya, got to go try something....

Tune Out The 640 Vibes?

What can be done to minimize the vibes in the 640? Jetting?

2 questions about the sprague clutch

So I am attempting the standard repair and got the nut off the crank with an impact gun. Now how will I hold the flywheel to pull it off and to eventually retorque it. If I leave the bike in gear it will still spin under pressure. It is not advised to use the bolt on the front that locks the motor at TDC on newer models. The 640 is a 2005. Does anyone know the torque specs on the main flywheel nut and any useful tricks to prevent flywheel movement? Thanks.

150Nm

Use a flywheel locking tool.

Maybe you can trailer the bike to a local dealer and pay a couple bucks to use theirs. If you have a local dealer and if they are decent people that would be willing to accommodate this request.

or the garage butchers' way... once the nut is off, you'll need a puller to remove the flywheel from the crank taper... as I didn't have a flywheel holder either... I used the inpact gun to drive the puller bolt and the flywheel (FW) simply popped off the shaft!

the rattle gun will 'easily' pull up the 150Nm torque on reassembly (without having to use a FW holder)... requires some feel, or some trialling with another nut, torque wrench and the gun, if your anal about such things.

btw, the FW can only go on 'one way' as it's keyed on the shaft....

is it not this? the Holy cess pool of all knowledge and lies for which we have, primarily the 'MP' to thank... having scoured nooks and crannys from top to bottom, plucked the scum from wads of trangled pubic hair and scraped the fungus from the cracks of our posts... herein lies the truth.

Rakija

Update on the rakija....
Contacted the post office 'bout mailing bottles of alcohol...
First of all, for Canada and USA the bottles with liquid have to be in a package that wont leek if bottles are cracked, in the package there has to be some stuff that will soak up spilled liquid (cotton buds) and all this has to be in a plastic bag...and then a carboard box.

Also, for the USA, the value of the package has to be declared ( it does not affect the postage costs significantly).

Postage, for both US & Canada, are around 40$.
As i said, first two "batches" are on me, for more we'll make an agreement of some kind....

Also, as shops don't work these days over here (holidays), I was not able to pick up stuff needed to mail it (boxes, cotton....) so please give me a couple of days to get the stuff needed. People that have sent me their addresses will be PM'd the day I send the stuff.

Creeper, Chris.....please check my posts about decompression shaft....help needed.

Thanks!
M.

Not much really. Try a taller and cushier seat, rubber blocks on the pegs for street, foam grips and anti-vibration bar ends. If that doesn't satisfy you and you don't want to get a new bike, get the crank balanced.
