What terrain is he riding when this happens?  Unfortunately the 640 does have a tendency of slipping gears, but I've only experienced it when properly off-road and rocky terrain.  Normal traveling should not do this.

DR Big 750 did you experience the gear "slip" ?

We have a 640 with same mileage and we find it happens when you change gears to quickly and you cruise at too
low rev's...... which Ktm's hate!!!
