640 enduro....comments please!
« on: April 09, 2013, 07:05:38 am »
I have the oppurtunity to get my hands on a 640enduro. I assume it has the same engine as the ADV model, but without the bigger tank and rally fairing.
Any thoughts on these?
Were they popular or just over shadowed by the adv model?
Can they be turned into a "baby" SE?

Any help or comments will be appreciated.

I have the 625 SXC, which is more light weight & I think has a bit more power. Love it! Light & fast! I believe that the 640 enduro has a bigger tank & more comfortable seat than the SXC. Not sure if it's got the cush drive as well.

Thanks very much!
Any idea on what model years to avoid, if any, due to specific problems?
This thing is getting under my skin.....

Prior to 2003 the clutch basket bearing is different . You can however upgrade this on an earlier model.

You seem to have a good knowledge of these bikes, anything negative you can tell me?
Do they also vibrate as much as the ADV are reported to?

They do vibrate as much. Took mine on a 4000km trip over 5 days . My arse was numb for 2 weeks after I returned.  ;D

Great bike though !!

Hard seat that is either good or bad depending on your preferance

Tyres don't last.  :)

Nice suspension

Buy it you should enjoy it
