The 90-95 models have a different seat and tank to the 96-2002 models, so you definitely can't interchange them. I know Acerbis makes a long range 23L tank for both of these model ranges - not sure...

I use Castrol RX-Super 15W-40, which is (i think) an API CL-4 Diesel engine oil in all my bikes (SRX6, XT6, VFR400). I change my oil and filter every 3000 kms / three months. You could probably...

Wow, the LC4's sure are quick bikes, and would definitely beat my XT600 or a DR650 in a 300km race, but I reckon over a 100k km race i'd be far ahead of any LC4 :)
