Hi all,
quick question.

Have anyone tried fitting the 25ltr acerbis EXC tank onto an LC4?

Finally replaced my broken clutch lever on the 640. I got one from Motion pro has a nice needle bearing in place of the stock bushing. Anyone ever try these?

Used on for years but it was from Enduro Engineering.
Good stuff.

When you buy a used bike, it's usually a good idea to go through everything..






Installed backwards... WTF.

I'm sure that re-built shock felt a little stiff at first.

Air Filter Skins

Are there any filter skins available for our loved ones?


I rode much of the TAT a couple of years ago on my 640 ADV and whilst riding in a group in dusty conditions was having to either change or wash my filter every day for a while.

Going again this year, I'm running with the air box open on top and sides (with the mesh screen), guess that's not helping but did grease the inside of the air box.

So are there any skins for the LC4 or do I have to use a pair of black silk stockings cut up to fit

I have yet to really look into it, but I was thinking one of the OuterWears covers for dunebuggys should work decent!

Did you get the filters for the 2 open hoses on the BST? I think MotoLab is carrying them!

I am sure I have Twin Air style as well as another company. When looking, keep in mind the 640A air filter is off the KTM 65 minibikes (of the same era) so you can buy anything that fits those bikes.

The best way I have found to avoid the air filter hassle is either to be way in front or way behind.

I have used the MSR # 03-0066 skins before. Fit pretty good.
But if you want to pack along silk stockings, beware what might crawl into your tent!

fuse issues

Hi everyone.
2001 LC4E, I have blown blinker/brake light/neutral fuses 3 times over the last few months. It happened this morning when riding into work. The headlight flickered then the next turn the blinkers were dead. I wanted to verify it's the right one installed and through searching I came up with 10A, but the one I have been replacing is a 25A. Which is correct?
Thanks for ANY help!!!

Why not close the sides and eliminate the problem?

You get enough air from the top and it's clean.

Timo, Why not close the sides, that's the problem.

This thread, we plowed this ground, us old ones!!!

http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...=123569&page=5

The link is to Happe's pic but the whole thread is good and I love the old arguements.

IMHO.
Open the top and then leave it alone.
You can flip the filter to get more miles once it grunges up, it will be clean on the bottom.

Easy to clean the stock filter with tank gas and reoil with engine oil.
Carry a couple of EMT gloves or the like.

Pull the fuel line, soak filter with gas, wring it out, di it again, set filter in sun or by the campfire, knock out any loose shit, reoil with engine oil and install.

GO!!!

And don't forget to fill your stove fuel bottle and reconnect the fuel line.
