Hi @sidetrack

Ja ek het hom nog, hy ry nog baie lekker het hom vanoggend hom geskyf uit die garage na die afdak toe.

Het nuwe tyre opgesit, maar kan nog nie toets nie.

Ek wou nog bietjie later n video post om te hoor of dit normaal is, as hy n rukkie gestaan het draai die engin seker so 9-10 keer voor hy start, maar as hy warm is start hy maklik.  Maar die battery is moeg so ek vermoed dis dit.

Lekker, kan valve adjustment wees ? Dink hy het rockers so sal maklik wees om te stel.

Ek gaan die valves probeer sort, het nog net valves op n GN125 gedoen maar eks seker die kan nie veel moeiliker wees nie.

Oppad Valves toe het ek sommer besluit om die petcocks te vervang, hulle lek as mens aan hulle raak.  Ek het nuwes bestel op aliexpress en eenvoudige ruil gewees:



Dan het ek die drade van petrol guage seergemaak, enige idee hoe mens dit kan regmaak?

As jy 'n dremel het, kan sou ek die sealant net genoeg verwyder om 'n solder join te kry.  Daarna seel met epoxy.

Geniet die projek.

I removed the main petcock as it was leaking as well, did not have a replacement so i cleaned it, hopefully it will be better now, will most probably replace as well, as it has some wear and tear inside.  had to cut away some carbon to get it out






Removed some epoxy with the dremel as suggested,


DIY solder iron, eventually replaced the nail with a drill bit, but somehow when some of the solder dripped into the hole it burnt off the little piece of copper i had to attach on. 


I tried to get a connection with what was left and used pratley quickset clear as it's all i had



Price on a replacement fuel level sensor pre covid was R795 excl Special order.

not sure what pricing will be like now. It seems to be the same one used on KTM 950 as well.

Going to try source a 2nd hand one somewhere first

Na werk vandag het ek probeer klaarmaak met die valves.

Het alles afgestrip en valve covers afgehaal toe roep Ma en se aand ete is reg.

meeste manuals se .015mm -

Maar ek het die op ADVRIDER gelees:

In the '07 KTM 640 Adventure owners manual (and I assume all other LC4 manuals) the valve lash spec is no longer a single number, but a rather large variable.

0.12 - 0.15mm

The upper range remains the same as the older spec. The lower range is what's new.
I don't know at this time if the spec is "retrofitable", or if it is specific to the '07 (and possibly the '06) model year only. A change in metallurgy, fitment of corresponding parts, or even mean average operating temperature could limit the new spec to just the current year.

Use the lower spec on older bikes at your own risk.


dink ek gaan maar nogsteeds op 0.15mm werk.

As far as I recall....set the at the upper end of clearance as the valves tighten up over time. I could be wrong.

Thank you for the input, I went with the upper clearance 0.15mm - it took me a while to master it but I think i got them spot on.  (I hope)

Battery does not have enough power to turn the engine, and kickstarting is much harder than it used to be, I take this as a good sign, I poured some petrol into the intake to see if it will fire up before I reassemble and it did once and quickly.

battery is on charge now, will try start is a bit later

Should be easier to kick with proper set valve clearances, huh? Mine kicked first time every time.

Sure you set the clearance on TDC on the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke?
