I thought I was funny. You guys are a riot. Oh, tell me what you hear, other than wind blast.



And yes, I never took my website seriously. This is all about having fun. I hope everyone gets something out of all this.

To me KTM 640 = Engine fire at 2000 miles. I asked KTM to replace the motor after three fires, they said, "Volvo has some really good sealant for engine gaskets. That should fix it." After nearly turning my leg into a Saturday roast, the KTM was back on the sales lot.

Thats true..

citroen rover and LADA actually has the best liquid sealant.

cadillac, suzuki and PUCH doesnt even come close.

Its very important to pay attention of what sealant brand to use, or you have to do it over and over again, cause the oil wont stop seeping or spitting out causing a 4th engine fire.

Nice soud clip. what chair did you use to hold thatL standing upright when shifting through the gears at wot?? Akra pipe? no doubt about it..

I used an old wooden stool. I put the bike on it and used a rubber trailer strap to keep it on the chair. I climbed on top of the seat, and fired up the bike. I had a friend blow on the microphone in my pocket to add wind noise. It took some real coaxing to get the guy to blow hard enough on the microphone to simulate 95 mph.

Can anyone hear the one spot where I hit redline?

@4,27

Redlining that hard is not recommended,
especially not with the rear wheel rotating free while the bike is standing on a wooden "pinnstol"... or chair if you prefer.


A real blow-j-b then,,..I can imagine it takes alot of effort to simulate 95 km/h by blowing in a microphone.

I am not gonna write more bad jokes in this tread because its really a unserious low level.. TT is better witout alot of misinformation:bye!:banghead:

I figured it would be two days and someone would take all that and go right down the gay obscene road with it or say something really whacked. I was right.

And, no, I would never rev that high while the bike was free standing on a stool. :banghead: At it turns out, the bike has been revving like that for about three years. I do know one thing, I cannot maintain that kind of RPMs for very long unless I am moving very very fast.

The bike tends to pick up a bearing noise when the oil is too hot. But otherwise, the bike has been perfectly reliable, and a riot to ride with a power band that I did not have before.

An FYI: The volume on the sound clip was not altered. The exhaust sound shock wave tends to throw the recorder off up past 70 mph and cancels out the microphone. I also discovered by accident that foam ear plugs have little protective effect on something that loud at high speed. The wind and motor noise went right into my skull, and left my ears ringing for about 4 hours. I think I need a quieter helmet.

Why wear a helmet? I can't ever get the bike into top gear at the high end of the engine's effective range anyway. It is too damn much power.

I have one simple rule with this bike: "Make sure you are pointed were you want to go, then hit the gas."

Right?

Nice video Kyron!

Hills like that can sometimes be found on highway construction sites. When I was 14, there was 5 mile stretch of abandon highway construction in Lancaster, PA with all the bridges built for all the original country roads as overpasses. These places were a hoot because of the 30 foot drops near the bridges and 50 or 60 foot climbs, huge bowls built for on-ramps and other goodies.

I miss the good ol' days watching that video.
