For the owners manual you gonna have to make due with the 2006 model, not really an issue as there are very little differences.

As for the workshop manual, don't even bother trying to find one online as they have all been removed, your best bet would be e-bay.

Also follow this link to advrider.com, there is a wealth of information on there wrt the 640

As for the parts diagrams, goto http://www.ktm-parts.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=OEMFINDER&Store_Code=K (http://www.ktm-parts.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=OEMFINDER&Store_Code=K)

I have used www.ktm-parts.com (http://www.ktm-parts.com) quite a few times for parts and have not had any issues, normally my parts arrive within 5-7 working days from order

Voodoo, do you still have the original pipe on it, or have you upgraded to a performance pipe? I want to remove the Cat-converter, and get better sound and performace from the scoot. Was at KTM today, and the suggested I have the cat converter cut out and pipe welded in its place. Also recomended removing the restricter plate + baffel? What do you think?

AFAIK there's two different pipes for the 640's one with a cat and one without, luckily bought mine without the cat.
As for the silencer, it was the first thing I changed, replaced it with a slip-on from FMF. The good old butt dyno tells me it's released a few ponies, but it's definately much more responsive with the FMF pipe (also removed the spark arrestor).

If you gonna do all those mods, you must have the jetting done, preferably on a dyno.

Can you recomend a Dyno place to use for the jetting excersize. Clint in Edenvale is pretty good I believe, but I would rather go to somebody who has experience with these bikes.

Small community in which we live  ;D

Can't imagine riding without the vibes, would probably fall asleep on the long boring stretches if it was a smooth ride, I'm running 16/38 sprockets, so I easily run at 140kph while still below 6000rpm
