KTM 640 ADV indicators
« on: June 17, 2011, 11:01:08 am »
Anyone know where I can get aftermarket indicators for the 640 ADV? Got home from my ride yesterday and both rear indicators had broken the stems  ??? ???

I haven't had a look at the mounting points but it looks a bit tricky with that rubber piece that goes through the rear plastic  :eek7:

Have a look at the oxford ones. I have the LED. No problems except that they flash faster

You need a resistor/ flasher/relay mha-gigy to get LED indicators to flash as per normal...LED have to little resistance hence faster flash rate. Got last from Craigs in CTown but sure some of the stores in Gauteng will also do it.

Dwerg,

Het jy reg gekom met die flika's, of is hulle vir nou nog vas met duct tape?

Het LED flikkers gekoop en ingesit. Bietjie van 'n mission gewees. Nie 'n maklike bike om aan te werk nie!

I am starting to think the 640A doesn't like having rear indicators. Broke another set this weekend just by rinding. No falls or anything. Maybe I should start slowing down over rough terrain  :ricky:

Hi Dwerg

Ek is die hele duisend rand later draai met die flikker ligte op die 640.

My lense was stukkend en ek sit toe so 'n R250 stel op.  Het nie gewerk nie, my laaitie breek hulle sommer af en gooi in die uitlaat.

Koop toe 4 ligte wat op die Xcounrty, F800, Ducati HM en 660 tenerre is.  Beste prys is by Yamaha. 

Na al die gesukkel ry ek toe KTM toe en gaan koop nuwe lense.  Kyk of die 990 ligte dalk pas, hulle lense is R50 in plaas van R140 vir die 640.


Groete

My probleem is dat die 'stems' van die flikkers aanhou breek. Die voorstes hou fine maar die agterstes breek aanhoudelik. Eks nou al deur 1 oorspronklike stel en 2 aftermarket stelle in 3000km so dis ook al 'n duur oefening. Ek het nou maar flikkers saam met bande en briek blokkies gegroep  :D
