    looks good dirty. i have a oil cooler off a ducati monster i cant fig out if i am going to add to the 625 or the ADV. i am leaning more to the 625 just so i can get a little extra oil in the motor. started to pull apart the shocks tonight and damn the guy who owned it before me really did not keep up on the up keep of this bike. fluid was really bad and low and the seals looked like shit. hoping to get it back together by fri and go for a trail ride with some good forks!!!!! anyone know what size person the springs are for in the forks?

    thanks for the info and photos. i have been thinking about mounting one of these

    http://www.jagg.com/jagg/pages/jagghome.htm

    Not sure which one, the smallest I guess. they hold this much oil (from FAQ page)

    How much oil capacity does your cooler add to my bike?
    A 6-row oil cooler will add approximately 6oz. A 10-row oil cooler will add approximately 8oz. So I calculate that at about 180ml and 240ml plus whatever is in the lines.

    Cheers

    Sucks about the forks- how can you tell if the oil is low? I just put bleeder valves on mine. My drz was not taken care of either. it is frustrasting indeed when you learn the hard way. The first ride on the drz and the chain broke at about 60. no big deal but not a good first impression. They talk about how much work you have to do on ktms- but i always had to do work to my drz. replaced cylinder a couple times, rod and crank- hell damn near the whole bike.

    I am not sure about the oil cooler. i know it wasnt much because i had too much oil in the bike before i started and after i put the cooler on it was just about right. i will have to do some checking. i lookd at those jags and they were pricey and would have to go behind the rad where i have the CRT. so i figured i would go the cheap route and see if it works. I will have to see if it says how much oil

    the company said the cooler only adds almost 1oz. not much- i told them my specs and asked them some tech qurestions i will post the results when i get an answer...i replaced the hose with 3/16 steel braided hose i got off ebay- about 15 bucks for 4ft.

    Dirty, what kind of mirrors are those? I have one puny little mirror on my SXC and would like to put two that actually work. I'm 6'4", so I need some pretty gangly mirrirs to get a view behind me.

    got the mirrors and adaptors to mount them from KTM world- the mirrors are from 2007 990 duke.

    the front brake clamp was also from ktm world 2004 ktm 450 exc US. You should be able to get them from there or atleast get a better picture...

    my SXC is 2004 also only had one mirror mount(mine didnt even have one mirror when i bought it)

    buy a cush lc4 complete wheel ..if you ride on the street the hub will crack.. trust me on this I have two on the shelf .. first cracked the other blew apart.. even if you keep your chain on the loose side .. plus the lc4 wheel has a wider rim..

    thats is what i am looking into. trying to find one under 300- not much luck. if i could find a hub and lace it to my stocker that would be great. My stocker is starting to crack- i just found it- it is not cracked all the way around yet but there are numerous 1-2 inch cracks...looking at the KTM parts for lc4A rear wheel- could i just buy a hub/sproket support/rubber busshings- or do i need to buy the spacers and all the little parts????

    Ok let me set this one straight cause I did it...
    the compele lc4 wheel 58410001544 is that.. all spacers ,bearings, spokes and DID silver dirtstar DOT rim (which is wider at 2.50 instead of 2.15 OK with me!) ..
    but the carrier is not included so you will have to get a carrier and rubber bushings..
    Now the carrier has two pn's one is more money and believe it may have to do with the bearings..

    You can also buy the hub complete that comes with spacers and bearings .. but you (or someone) will have to unlace your rim and you will have to buy a half set of spokes 54610471000 SPOKE M5X223-10G 18" as the hub is slightly different but you can use half the spokes off the old wheel . it will need to be relaced and trued..

    so threre are both options

    I got the complete wheel so no waiting. and it was nice and shiny.. Dont forget if you get a complete wheel you will need a wider rim lock..

    and the rotors and sprockets all interchange as well as the 03 and later longer swingarm

    still never figgured out why the sxc hub had the thin spacer with the sprocket.. useless

    thanks alot for the part number and explaination- i forgot about the different spokes. sounds like a better deal to get the whole wheel. what is the widest tire you got on the new one? i have 140 MT21 on there right now. someone before me cut out the chain guard to run that tire. I do not like the mt21 either- wears too fast. i might as well have a trackmaster 2- get about the same miles...

    I also have a question. I'm trying to make my sxc a little more travelling friendly. Which seat + tank combination should I get? I'm trying to save money so if anyone knows of any good deals I'll really appreciate the hint :1drink

    i posted pics of mine. i have the 18L tank which requires the comfort seat. it came on the bike when i bought it. i have to stock stuff but after looking at the stock seat i have not changed it. Most people talk about the vibs and i didnt notice it as much i think because of the comfort seat. the only thing i do not like about the seat is the downward angle towards the front. I have not had mine for long so one time i got 170 miles of mostly hard woods riding and some street until i hit the reserve. Changing the tank is easy becase not bolted to the radiator. the cap locks. the tank does block the choke- but i just feel around and can still get at it. I dont notice the extra weight of the gas and i ride pretty hard in the woods- ofcourse i do not know what the stock is like. the bike still feels light to me relatively speaking.

    Which part number should I be looking for for the 18L tank? Are there different brands/types that would fit? And same question for the comfort seat?
