Stephan is right, although yours could have been titled in '98 or later. For the online parts fiche, check this out. It the cleanest looking EGS-E I have seen. The rear subframe should be easily adaptable to rear tanks, if 28 liters isn't enough. Is your fuel tank painted, or orange plastic? Nice purchase!

It's gonna be tough to find metal rack to mount aluminum sidecases to that LC4 Adv.. I love those dual low-swung exhaust pipes, but I don't know of any rack/luggage manifacturer fabricated kits for that particular model.

I doubt even Touratech.de would have a rack fitment for aluminum sidecases that's for the LC4 Adv with dual low-swung exhaust.

Thanks everyone.

This forums terrific...., there is a brand new '01 Adventure now sitting in my drive. Knowing how "old" it was gave me great barganing leverage (cash in hand).

My daily commute to and from Mexico starts tomorrow (Friday, 4 June) with it...., and am really looking forward to first later this month meeting up with my brothers in Austin, one with a Triumph Tiger and one with the BMW 1100 (GS I think), and then later meeting more of the members here in this forum.

I just found an old review of a '98 EGS-E here. , so maybe the Blue/Orange came out in Europe in '98 and not in the US (?)

If you aren't beholden to your low exhaust, Stock LC4 exhausts are on ebay almost weekly. Try to find a newer LC4 of some variety to compare starter position, but I think you should have no problem swapping exhausts, if that is a direction you want to go. I have not seen a picture of your left side number plate plastic, but that might need to be replaced with one that bulges for the muffler (mine are distinctly asymmetric.)

I have no aluminum pannier experience, but I plan to go with Happy Trails racks, and Ortlieb roll top panniers when I feel the need for luggage. The disadvantage is lack of security when unattended, and having to take them off/put them on more often. They won't protect the bike as well in a crash, either. There are some skinny boxes out there, but capacity is compromised...

Enjoy your pristine machine! And "Just do it" when it comes to putting a Keihin FCR carby on. If that is too spendy, I bet you could find a Mikuni BST around here for next to nothing!

What?

The '97 has a Dellorto Carb. The coolest carb you can get for no money.
If you need a new one, have a look at ebay. I found six Dellortos last week for round about 50-60.-quit.
Otherwise just change the needle and needlejet and he is like new.

cheers

Stefan

Here is a picture of my adventure, it takes about 60 minutes to convert from one mode to another.






I can't seem to find the photo with standard "Big" wheels at the moment

I just got my new Adventure this weekend as well. I am told and have verified from my KTM dealer this is a 98 but it is the European version...thus the difference in colors, etc. The euro version comes stock with the dual exhaust though the other users cans are different than mine. These also come stock with the Del Orto carburetor. Mine has 1500 miles on it and was imported by the guy I bought it from through the local dealer. I am told only 10 or so of these 98's were brought into the states.

Also, yes touratech does make Pannier mounts for the bike as I do currently have them installed as you can see in the pictures.
