« on: October 21, 2013, 10:03:16 pm »
Since this lovely piece of machinery was discontinued ...???
I wonder how many are still in action & where ..
not sure how many were sold in SA, will try & look for that stat..

Not to distract from the dedicated thread, it would be nice to get a bit of info..

Something like this..

Goingnowherequickly..
Salt Rock KZN
2007 model - purchased 2009 17000Km
Sold 47500Km..
2004 model Purchased 2013 - 7500Km - Current

Since these bike are destined to become collectors items, it would be great to hear where you live, I might have to beg some parts .. :biggrin:

Is this restricted to 640's only, as I have a 625 SXC, but it's still an LC4.

2006, with just over 6K on the clock currently. I bought it last year & the silly grin never leaves may face while & after riding it!!  :biggrin:

Was the 32l tank standard for that year or a mod?

2007 model with 22000 on the clock. Perfect condition and runs like a steam train. The most fun I have ever had on a bike for sure.

What's the funny "clatter" noise when shutting down?

Please help!
What oil are the 640 owners out there using?
The book says 10w50 fully synthetic, any suggestions on brands would be much appreciated.
