Gauging interest in selling the 04 SXC. 6500 miles, $4500.00 as it sits with an extensive list of adds ( need to take a sec to compile) Can supply additional fotos and details via pm. The Sahara's have less than 250 miles. Bike is in ABQ.
Anyone have a need or want?

I found a review for this bike since I didn't know anything about it.


Quote:
-- Above and Beyond The Competition --
I purchased a new '04 KTM 625 SXC after considering the different dual sport bikes available. I've owned XT 600's, XL650's, and KLR 600's as a dual sport reference, and Maico, Yamaha, and Kawasaki open class motocrossers for dirt only. My observations on the KTM:
Exceptional low end torque as well as fair to good top end rev-ability.
Build quality is top-notch; all high end parts and components. This makes it pretty expensive compared to other dual sport bikes, but the extra performance is well-worth the premium.
Quite a bit of vibration; noticeable at freeway speeds as a tingling coming up through the sole of my boots... handlebars not nearly as much.
Great multi-use platform for KTM: the use the same basic configuration for the 640 Adventure as well as the 625SMC and the Duke. Excellent and simple parts interchangeability.
Swallows bumps and ruts with barely a notice. To go through extremely rutted or broken up terrain, just open the throttle and let the front wheel skim the ground while the rear end powers through.
Shifting is buttery smooth; up or down, it almost doesn't require use of the clutch.
Electric start is strong and swift.
Much better looking than the other dual sport offerings; looks more purposeful and like a dirt-bike.
Front brake lever travel is mushy and long; I understand a lot of KTM dirt bikes are that way because of the small reservoir/piston used. I checked others at the dealership, and they were almost universally that way. Bleeding does little to make a difference here.
Tall...I stand on my toes at 6' 1".
Fuel tank is quite small. Larger tank is a popular upgrade...figure on about 80 to 90 miles before switching over to reserve on mostly street riding.
Slides easily and predictably. Judicious use of the throttle on corners will allow the rear to break free easily but controllably. Better to NOT be behind one of these in a race or dual sport get-together; you'll get beat to death by the roost!

Not to be rude.. but "gauging interest" without a price is a waste of time.

We all love motorcycles.
If the price is right, everyone is interested.
If the price is wrong, nobody is interested.

Wallace, Is this one of those Hard Enduros? The extra oil carrying capability of hard enduros is highly valued.

That's a very clean bike.

FS: New KLR tank guards - pre 2007 (Denver)

Got a set of KLR tank guards from Whitehorse (made by Studebaker), never mounted and still in the box.

Turns out that for whatever reason my 87 KLR doesn't have the needed frame hole to mount the things. Not sure why...the good folks at whitehorse were a little baffled by it too. I could probably figure a way to jackass them on the bike, but I have a kitchen to build and a wife who would really rather me work on that before messing around in the garage.

It's time for them to go since my dumb ass waited too long to return them.

Here's the link to their site so you can see what you're getting.
http://www.whitehorsepress.com/produ...oducts_id=6113

I paid $136 for them including shipping. Asking $120 with $20 of that going back to Baldy for keeping the lights on.

You'll need the heavy duty engine guard to mount them which is not included.

You might be able to take the parts off-sell them separately, then the bike and make a bit more.

Just sayin...

Anybody around here looking at this guy's bikes, I can tell you first hand, his bikes are rock solid! Tuned-tricked-and ready to go. I would think this would be an awesome bike for ride Moody's, Killpecker and the likes!!

I bought this from him last year if anyone is looking for references.

What's the real story? Cause it outta make a great tow vehicle? Gas mileage?

Would love to have it to go wheeling in, but not in the cards for me. Good luck though!

Good thought and you're absolutely right, I've just never been able to take apart a perfectly good machine and parcel it off piece by piece. If it were wrecked that'd be different.

Thanks though!
