Re: new van build

Thanks for the tips! Fiberglass is quite repairable too, right? That's my understanding anyway. This particular top has a little bit of spiderwebbing, and at least one of the windows was missing. THe finish is very dull by now as well. But i think over all it is very salvageable. I should learn a little more about fiberglass.

If it's not reverse flange, you just remove the trim ring and screws and then use the same sort of process with a knife?

Great to know they may be interchangeable. Although, I'll probably wind up with an 80s van, lol, so it wouldn't be an issue in that case! :-)

Re: new van build

Yes glass is easily repairable you can buff out the gell coat or just repaint the whole thing. And yes a standard flange top you just remove the screws and pop it off. The glue does not have as much surface area so it will come off easier than a reverse flange top. Good luck.

Re: new van build

Thanks.

PS - the 620SX is one of the best dual sport singles ever! Somewhat obscure bike, hard to find, works great!

Re: new van build

Yes they are really hard to find the sx (what I have) is even harder to find it is not a dual sport it is a desert racer it does not have lights or anything else related to dual sports to keep it light for racing. Fun fun bike mine has a 20 over bore port and polish and supertrapp exhaust. I put a paddle on it and laugh at all the guys in dunes with 1000s of dollars poured into turbo nitro quads. I can pass them in any gear at any speed when ever i want to. The awsome thing about that bike is that I can also ride trails all day long on it and not beat myself silly then when you get on a open stretch I can crack the throttle and hit 120 in a matter of seconds. It is a giggle fun bike to ride.

Re: new van build

Ah, i thought there was only one version of the 620. I don't know much about that one. My dad has a 620, not sure which trim i guess, (he and I have tried a LOT of different dual sport bikes). It and the TE610 are among my favorites. The 640 sucks. Great bikes but the vibration is just absurd. 690 is fun, that baby is smooooth and faaaast. FI kinda sucked though, on the first ones anyway.

Re: new van build

not to threadjack

i have a 640 ADV, and mine is butter smooth. BUT-i have ridden some that are vibrators though--and vibrated badly--not sure why. I've owned tons of DS bikes and the 640adv is the sweet spot for me, although the TE610 has been tempting me, as well as the 690, just not as packable as the 640adv

i also ride a 450EXC, DS kitted, and had a 400MXC before that--yz250 before that

then my street bike list is way to long to post here

back to thread--still looking for my van--to replace my syncro westy so i can have DSW4x4 help me build. my build revolves around dirt bikes and getting them secure inside--and still have a place to sleep

You don't get much closer to SLC than Utah . . . .
