2007 640 Adventure watch outs?


I am close to buying a 2007 640 Adventure and was wondering if anyone had any tips on what to look for. Any known problems, wear items or anything?

Going to take it out for a test ride this weekend so will be perfect to look it over really good.



And once you have a chance to peruse the thread listed above and purchase the bike if it's in decent shape, kick your feet up and dive into this thread....more than you care to learn about the bike:


I started out with an '03 640A then found a like new low mile '07 640A and don't ever plan to sell her.

The LC4 mill is like the XR engines. They work and don't break-no wonder that engine has won more Dakar races than any other.


He's right. My 2002 640 has 15000 miles and runs great.

      Who says you cant be competitive on a 550 lb Bike??

      What are these? Big heavy 550- 600 pound road bikes with dirt tires and an upright position?
      That seems to be them.
      To me an "adventure bike" is one that you travel on remote roads which aren't developed.
      If you're not able to pick it up when you drop it ( and you should daily ), then it's not an adventure.
      Try picking up a 600-700 pound bike by yourself on a loose steep road....ain't gonna happen.
      So it beats me why these bike manufacturers don't take a DR,KLR,XR and give them a 6 speed tranny, and a modern suspension. These are the real adventure bikes...fun,light and you can power slide and get her loose without worrying about being crushed when you drop. The only one that's up to speed is the KTM. Instead, these are stuck in the 1980's tech department.

      Let's face it, TT is a pretty good resource for dual sport riders, but not so much for riders of large adventure bikes. Late last year, we starting working on building a community dedicated to large adventure bike riders and we'd like to invite you to join us. You can find us at http://www.xladv.com
      The community is still a baby, but it seems to be steadily growing and some good ride reports are already out there. While it's based around discussion forums, we did bring over our Virtual Garage and Reviews System. We also have a community photo gallery where you can share your adventures and browse though the shots of others.
      So, if riding large adventure bikes is one of your passions, we'd love to have you.
