Question

DaBurn was tellin me that back in 97 the RXCe was a relatively rare bird. Somewhat of a limited (sort of like racing) edition? He told me the whole bit that he knew about it, but I was drinkin and don't remember much.

Any of you KTM officianados know any details about the RXCe? I've yet to do my on line research...

It seeems to be MUCH angrier than any 350 or 400 I've ever ridden. Pretty damn zippy...

Well I don't get it. Anyway don't those bikes have the kick start on the wrong end and the chain too? It seems like there is some kind of carburetor swap that everyone did to the 620s.

Eloy was referring to the night that I started up my honda helix at about 10pm one night, got all looped up, went to sleep, and it was still sitting out in the man shed, 9 hours later, the next morning idling angrily. Can you say hot??? Lil fooker proved to me that its cooling system worked perfectly!

I think he bought a VC jacket or something and hasn't been seen since.

Yup and yup. Carb has been swapped on this one. Mukuni on it now. Dunno if that's the "preferred" unit, and I guess I really don't give a chit. It still had a flat/bog spot until it's totally piping hot. That sort of bugs me. Just need to let it warm up for 15 minutes before I try and engage with the fast burn crowd over in par .

It aint no thing butta chicken wing anyway 'cause the fooker is so old tech no one give two shits anyway, including me. Should not have even asked the question.

The only "good" thing about it is that it has an estart -- and it's anyone's guess how hardly the electrical system is....
