Here's mine. I got it a month ago, it's a second hand 2001. It was completely stock, the PO was kind enough to pass along an electric roadbook holder and a tank bag. I am adding lotsa goods from Sommer, Touratech and a bash plate with toolbox that it's now on its way from Poland. . I'll post some pics when the bike is finished.

So. Carlos... is that the Portugese Riviera in the background? I hate you!
I can't speak for all the rest but I'm almost positive they may hate you too!

On a lighter note, I have friends in the Portugese Riviera, a couple of Brits named Michelle and Peter, she's a major hottie and he's just your typical butt ugly Brit who got real lucky.
Doesn't ring a bell?... Ok, thanks for lookin".
Good to see you Brother Carlos, and don't fall off that itty bitty board walk they apparently make you ride on.

Ciao,
Creeper

*heated grips
*comfort grips from Sommer
*IMO 300
*End of rear frame built in CrMo instead of Alu to take
*one off rack
*One off holder and connections for the Garmin V
*Scott oiler where the emergency beacon used to be
*Stealht sprocket from KTM
Hi RallyKay and welcome. That bike looks good More photos and details please

Baja huh! You bastard! I'd hate you but I hear your a decent sort of guy

Lookin' all business like and shit there Nate. How you likin' that SW Motec side stand? That the bolt-on unit?

There's a thread I started somewhere in "Thumpers" here with a pretty good listing of LC4 exhausts... if you haven't already seen it that is.

I've got the roadbook holder on order, any trouble with that for lock to lock?

See ya' round the WWW,
Creeper

Nate, how do you like that seat compared to your stock brick? I've been thinking about a seat mod or a switch to the '03' stock seat.

I'd sure like to get "under the hood" so to speak, mind if I come over and disassemble yours, just so I can see what makes it tick.

Have you figured out all the functions of the IMO300R? Those are pretty nice kit. I thought those 660 Rallye already had a pretty strong camshaft profile in them? Thanks for sharing, and welcome to the ADVrider asylum. Cheers, Mack
I guess that i have them figured out. How many of them that i actually use is another story... One thing that i don´t use is the rev counter funktion.
I haven´t yet find out where to connect that cable because of the "direct ignition" (the coil sits directly on the spark plug) on this bike. A mail to Touratec would prapably sort that out.
And yes, the cam shaft is pretty radical as it is, but not difficult to drive in any way. Recommended if you like to try a hotter cam.
The reason why i am thinking of the motard cam is only because i dont know what else to do with the bike!!!
I am very happy with it as it is and that is good, but also a bit boring.
According to tests of the motard that i have been reading, it would still have a reasonable powerband after such a cam shange. In Sweden at least they are also fairly cheep, and my dealer have one!

Nice to have this forum i must say, lots of knowledge here.

Kay.

I think we is talking about the sub $30, genuine KTM widget... at least that's what I'm talking about. The one in the KTM hardparts catalog.
