Looks like your money would have been better spent on a high fender!

Keeping the dust out but letting the air in on a 640 Adventure

I am finding that the air filter clogs up real quick on my Adventure even riding alone and I am looking at ways to remedy things. I have just put a unifilter in (lot more surface area to clog), got some filter skins and have taken off the racing sidecover and replaced it with the original inner cover. The dilemma is that taking off the racing sidecover will obviously reduce airflow somewhat, so I thought I would pull the snorkel off, but this leaves a dirty great big hole in the top, that will presumably let the dust back in?

Looking at the hole it would be relatively easy to cover it with gauze or foam, has anyone done this successfully? Has anyone any other ideas?

Ta,

Adrian

Adrian,

You might want to look at Happe's modifications for dusty conditions:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=123569&page=3
I should probably index that one...

one more here, but not as detailed:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6289574

Macuser, I guess you now know that you will need to weld a bracket onto the frame to attach the forward subframe. KTM doesn't sell that part so you will have to fabricate it. The specifications for that bracket have been posted recently... hmmm... here:

For a second I thought that was Robin Williams, maybe from some period piece...

My secret is not having everything catalogued, even if I try with the Index, but to remember things that were posted - and often who posted them, which allows me to search better. Not so much locally (especially since the ADV site is coughing and a sputterin'... and local search is not always functional) but with Google using:

site:www.advrider.com snorkel happe

but a screen name is not always necessary, such as:

site:www.advrider.com sxc bracket

for the other request. There, now you have the power too, provided you remember what was posted, sometimes who posted it, and most importantly what terminology was used.

Ok, I admit it.....too lazy to go back through this thread. Anyone ever rebuild a 625 SXC? I've got an 03 and it's still fresh but I've heard talk about a 680cc or 710cc kit for the ole LC4. Anyone have any experience with these? I contacted Munn and they said they've never done a 625 before but that they work on a lot of motors and could probably do it.

Just curious as to the cost and any changes to carburation that would be required.

You don't have to comb this thread... on page one is an, um, INDEX! A list of threads that you can comb thru for things of interest to you.

Like: SXC!!! Just goto Page 1, hit Ctrl and the letter F at the same time, type SXC, and hit enter, over and over again until you have looked at all the SXC threads. Then get back to us on your questions.

you can even try the Google tips I gave you on this page above; like this:

50mm Extreme forks - looking for info on servicing and changing springs on a 2000 LC-4 E ( oil level, type, etc would be helpful also) . I found lot's of info on the USD forks but can't seem to locate any for my bike. I'm sure it's here - just can't seem to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
C.

Replacing the stoke exhaust.

I have just bought a silencer on ebay for my 03 640 Adv , and want to swap the exhaust.

Is there a link with images for doing this.

I have never done it before.

Many thanks
