1998 Model - Imported from Germany by the first owner.

26000km.

Buying it on Monday - CANNOT WAIT!

Looks exactly like this - still has the low stop light compared to later models.

Got the beast yesterday.

Awesome.

It seems my Tripmaster has only German as the language - I RTFM'd and there seems to be no option as shown in the manual. Must be because it's an import.

Otherwise, taken the luggage rack off for now, want to get new graphics, powdercoat the rims satin black, refurbish the screen, fit a low fender (just like the aesthetics), obviously service etc, new balck seat cover.

First time on the road in my life yesterday - 100 km or so on dirt, tar and highway - it's scary at first haha.

Never hesitate to take that ride. Ride safe, ride often and ride far. The soul demands it.

I really really want one!  (Took me 10 years to realize I'll never be man enough to ride my 950 properly)
 
Been eyeing a couple 640s for sale on Gomboom.

- How many kms is too many?
- Do some really vibrate more than others?
- Sell me yours/ your mates'? Stellenbosch area.

Love mine. Hope to never have to sell it. Only ever ridden 2 examples but on both I felt that the vibration was less intrusive than my KLR 650. Km? Dunno, suppose it depends on how much you are willing to spend on it. At just short of 80 000 mine still runs as sweetly as ever

Good day Fellas

I see that you guys love the 640 very much and have a lot of experience on the niggles and maintenance issues. I have installed a 640 engine into a 650 Husaberg frame.  On the first longish trip the CDI burnt out. 

What could have caused the melt down?
Who can supply a compatible after market unit or good used one?

Thanking you all in advance.
