    If you look in the center of the LC4 motor there is a aluminum thing with hoses coming out is this a positive electric oil sump or an electric fuel pump?Who is in the Know. I will bet the jug is bored and hard chromed 80cc over stock and that they are running 20 psi of positive oil pressure for extra hear removal but where is the larger oil resivoir probaly modified the frame. I have heard of som people cutting the down tube resivoir and ovalizing it to double oil capacity.

    If you look at the center tube it has been modified and has two braided lines coming out for the circuit.

    Looks like the third oil filter just like the one on my 660 Rallye.. without the cooling fins cover.

    It's the oil microfilter.

    I like the Excel wheels, airbox venting (both sides) and the exhaust. Neat bike.

    Two quick questions;

    Is there a kit to do the oil filter modification relocation on a standard LC4?

    What tires are they run'n?

    Check out the footpegs :eek1
    They must be six inches wide -- wouldn't want to catch that in the side of the leg during a crash.
    This bike makes me :tb
    I've always liked the Baja bikes more than Dakar bikes (HPN's old airhead Baja BMW bike is :thumb ) because they are a nice balance between regular dirtbike and rally bike. Long range capability, but still sleek.

    I don't think it's a relocation kit, on my 660 Rallye it is an extra oil filter, total of three oil filters, longer oil circuit to allow more cooling time for the engine to run at high rpm all day long..
    I can't tell if there is enough room between the exhaust pipe of the 700 LC4 to fit the spin-on oil filter in the frame.

    Looks like they are running Michelin Desert tires to me.

    The system is running at three times the normal crank case pressurization, the faster oil flow sheds heat quicker and keeps the oil away from its flash point, I dont think there is a filter. I would bet the exhaust alone cost 2k all titanium.
