howsit guys, thinking about looking into a 640 myself.  just wondering what a typical service costs you if you do it yourself?  and what do you typically replace?  back tyres every 5000km?

thanks

Normal service is under 2k if you do it at a shop so much less of course if you do it by yourself. Tyres depends on what you fit and how you ride. I've killed a Pirelli MT21 in 1500 km. The E07 I have now should give about 5000.

Ps. You shouldn't be asking questions. Just do it. They are super fun to ride  :thumleft:

Just worried about the commute. I do 115km a day. 5000km on a rear is hectic! Got nearly. 20000 on my 80G/S when I sold it with lots of life left.

i used a few pirelly scorpions on my 6fott, best the front gave me was 38000km!! (drove like a old lady) worst was 2200km, beat rear was 12000km worst was 2100km..

service the thing yourself, many places to get advice, and import the parts ahead, save 100000's...
there is only one kind of adventure, the lc4 kind
