I am currently in Potosi, Bolivia on my way south and looking to sell my bike at the end of the trip. It is a 2001 KTM 640 Adventure that is fully setup for adventure touring. It needs almost nothing except a new rider who has enjoyed it as much as I have. It will have about 30k miles on it by the time I reach BA around APRIL 20th.
-Fully revalved and resprung suspension by one of the premier KTM/WP experts in the US, .50 front springs, and I will sell with either a 9.2 or a spare 8.8 that I have. The heavier one would be perfect for someone north of 180lbs with panniers/adv gear, and the lighter one is perfect for someone less than that. It handles incredibly well in the twisties, and I can almost drag the panniers that are mounted very high up
-Heated grips with high/low option
-V-strom aftermarket windscreen that blocks all the wind right over my 6´2¨ head, and a velcro attachable extra 3in. insert if you really want to block all the cold air from reaching you.
-Full jet kit installed and dyno tuned professionally.- spare jets included, and new needle installed, great at altitude too, cruised at 120kph all the way to Potosi, Bolivia at 4000m plus
-Wing exhaust with a full race header (I can't remember if it's a fully system or just a slipon, but I think it's a race header as well)
-Happy Trails pannier rack
-Inflatable seat pad that is very comfy
-Huge touratech tank bag with expandable section, map pocket, and waterproof cover
-Cleanable inline fuel fliter
-Custom dash with aftermarket digital dash and accessory fuse box mounted on dash for easy access of blown fuses without removing anything
-Plexiglass headlight guard
-Aftermarket coolant overflow tank rigged up on right side under the seat
-Bed liner has been applied in several coats to the tank making it very crash proof without being abrasive to bare legs
-gps mount for 76/60 garmin
-The stock metal skidplate, and plastic handguards come with it as well of course
-Panniers- One side has a converted US Army Mermite food container. It is aluminum, and has been stregthened with steel plate on the mounting surfaces. The other side is a custom made aluminum box that is also very sturdy. Each pannier has just over 40L of capacity and are top loading.
-brake and clutch levers
-wheel bearings- front and rear
-steering head bearings
-new front sprocket
-two heavy duty tubes- one each front and rear
-Brake pads front and rear
-Spare tires with decent life left, but I don't know exactly which ones I will have by BA
What it needs
-I rebuilt the water pump before leaving, but they ususally have about a 20k mile lifetime, so new water pump bearings and seals would be a good idea for anyone looking to do a similar adventure as mine.
-I would also remove the rocker cover and check the cam bearings and the valve adjustment. Both should be fine, but it's a good idea to check before departing for destinations not on a map
-I will be putting on a new chain and sprockets and changing the fork seals, fork oil, shock seal, and shock nitrogen and oil in Santiago, so they should be good to go for a long time.
-The left side passenger peg and bracket vibrated off somewhere in Ecuador
-EDIT: now selling with both panniers, see above.
Other than those few maintenance items it is a bombproof bike built for the Dakar that will leave countless smiles on your face as you blow bike those KLRs in the dirt or the pavement. I'm asking $3k with the tankbag, gps mount, and panniers. I will be in BA around April 20th, and I can deliver the bike to any reasonable location upon request.
