KTM 640 Maintenance PLEASE assist with checklist !!!
« on: July 01, 2015, 08:28:50 am »
Since I am close to buying a 640 and searched the internet for some potential problems and found a few things but would appreciate it if you can assist me with extending this list a bit. Lets assume you are preparing the bike for a long overland trip  :P
(If I misquoted some points please correct me - I am not to technical  :-\ ) -- I will modify the first post with any additions.
So far:
Check wheel bearings
Clutch cable at 25,000 km
Fork seals at 20,000 km
Check for cracks on top triple clamp
Gearbox output seal changed 26,000
Steering head bearings changed 20,000
Check side stand
Check subframe after exhaust for cracks
Voltage regulator correct charge
Fuel pump upgrade http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-fuel-pump-upgrade
Balancer shaft bearings
Inlet rocker bearing
Wear on cam shaft followers
Waterpump bearings & seal
Timing chain wear
Check subframe bolts
Change the clutch basket bearing to the new spec barrel roller bearing (Pre 2003)

Sometimes you don't need a plan, just balls :)
I'd rather ... be riding my motorcycle and thinking about God than sitting ... in Church and thinking about my motorcycle.

Check ALL bolts, not only subframe.

Schalk, ek sal vanaand in die manual vir jou loer. As ek reg onthou is daar 'n maintenance afdeling. Indien wel sal ek vir jou more scan.
