Lukas, first of all, however I'm not sure about the LC 4's frame, I guess you'll need to modify it like I needed to with my SXV. I'll make many photos about mine so you'll probably see the main "direction" . I also will make a detailed list about the process later. Gotta go now, se you all later.

cheers

Nice sxv Square wire! What happened to the original sxv engine, i heard those are really reliable?

Yeah you should really have a build thread of your Aprisaki!

And maybe an onboard ride video on Youtube??!

Keep it up towards the top. Maybe it'll get done faster?

Just did a 5 day road trip, and there were a few times that I wished my 650cc's were from a twin and not a thumper



I'm not sure the parallel twin "sounds" as good as a V, but it'd sound a damn sight better than my single at 80mph

Welcome David, cool to see you post on here.

I also can't wait to see some more pictures and information on your build. Just out of curiosity, is the bike in Hungary or the UK? Even though I live mostly in Spain, my KTM and ER-6N are back home in Vienna. Only a 3 hour drive from Kecskemét....

As far as the frame fitment, I will know more in 2 weeks. Have to strip the adventure down anyway since the LC4 is already sold and I have to ship it ASAP.

Cheers,
Lukas

How bout weighing that engine when you get a chance?


I'll be tared and feathered and cast out of the Nx club but....


swear this thing would ROCK if I can squeeze this into my 280-290lb Nx...


Is it fwd shift? Or out the rear like most sport bikes?

I am absolutely going to weigh both engines, probably most other parts as well. From what I was able to find online - which wasn't much - the 650 is supposed to weigh around 60-65kgs and the LC4 35-40kgs. I hope that the difference won't be that much, but let's see.

Ok, did some digging, I believe I had a donor bike (yet need to call)..
So, I figured I would start with the rear end, since the Versys and Nija motor are about the same, and both are left drive, we need to look into an alternative for the swing arm...

These parts are associated with the 2009 690 R --
One question still outstanding is the gap for the swing arm and mounting... to the frame or motor....

Still researching

didnt read the rest of the thread, but... Why cant you just flip the tire around? You'll have to do some changing around for the brakes and stuff, but since I'm to Lazy to walk the 50 ft to my garage and look at my LC4, is there anything major in the way of just turning the tire around so the sprocket is on the correct side? I have a '78 KTM MC5 I'm planning on stuffing a built XL350 motor into, and it has the same problem, but it looks like it would be incredibly simple to swap the tire / brakes around and use a cable instead of the push rod...

We are talking the 640, yet due to the placement of the rear break assembly, there is a tab on the left side inside the swing arm for the break assembly to slide...

True this could be cut and welded to the other side, yet no to sure on it's stress level.


Just thinking out loud here.

Wouldn't the caliper itself be backwards?

Would it matter? Other than needing a longer brake line anyways?

you pretty much need a caliper that is made for one side or the other.

The slider has to line up with the offset. If you flip the caliper upsidedown you hang it under the swingarm with the bled at the lowpoing.

Looking at the caliper, it's pretty clearly meant to work best in one direction. Even if it mounted on the other side, the brake pads are braced best in one direction.

Not that it's that big a deal. There are plenty of potential donor brake calipers for a right side brake.
