We deserve our own thread. I'll start!
I know there are more of ya out there...Lets see 'em
ps -nice one crow!
Too late, I sold my Duke a couple of years ago.
I just found a NEW 2002 Duke II at the dealer in Soldotna Alaska. I haven't done anything to it yet and it looks just like the one in the above pictures. I bought it for my wife and she really loves it. She has 134 miles on it and rides it to work every day.
Crow, that is a sweet looking Duke!!!!
When I can figure out how to post a pic I'll do it. Who sells that front rotor? Mines a titanium color 00 with FCR 41, Y-pipe, Staintune mufflers, mesh airbox cover, centerstand, Magura hydraulic clutch kit, H.I.D. headlamp kit, Scotts stainless steel oil filters, Hardparts plastic skid plate, handguards, tankbag, Motrax axil sliders. Still looking for a rear hugger.
Finally, something worthy of spending my 1000th post on (I sure wasn't going to burn it in JM )
1996 Third Edition #443: pure, concentrated adrenaline
Larger pics and write-up on my website
Here is mine!
Any info on the H.I.D. kit and the sliders? Link please?
Here is mine. Picked it up about two weeks ago. My second 2001 Duke. I was dumb enough to sell my 1st (Titanium) and was lucky enough to pick up another.
I need a new picture. Here is my '01 Chili Red Duke II....
Just got mine last month! Man what blast, the Duc hasn't been out of the garage in weeks.
The front wave rotor with the orange center is KTM part 58409060200.
I'm also running a rear wave rotor, KTM part 54810060200.
The rear wave rotor offers tremendous stopping power over stock. I just put on the front wave rotor and haven't tested it yet, but I imagine I'll experience improved stopping up front, too.
I'm tired of replacing the stock aluminum rear sprocket, so when it's time to replace it again I'll be putting on the Stealth sprocket. Steel teeth, orange aluminum center, KTM part 58410051038/04.
Finally, valve stem caps? How about orange aluminum? Too cool, KTM part U6951439.
These pics of my Duke were taken to commemorate going back to the original cast wheels and original gas tank with shrouds. I was running the 18L gas tank and spoked wheels (from a Chili Red 2001 Duke II) for greater versatility. Recently, however, I bought a 2004 Honda 599. Being back to a two-moto stable, I decided to return the Duke to it's original asphalt surfing mission, using the Honda as my "touring" moto. So, look for the 18L gas tank and spoked wheels, with stock front and rear rotors, for sale in the Flea Market soon!
My 2000 Duke II. I just picked it up about three weeks ago. I traded my KLX400 for it.
Like Mdubya, I need a new picture
Love this bike, but I keep hearing the siren song of a 950 SM
I purchaced the H.I.D. kit from a Austrian member of this site, I did a search but couldent find the thread. His name is Michael Fredel. I think he has his own web site. The axil sliders I bought of the clearance table at my local Cycle Gear store, then I just attached them with some all thread, washers, and nuts.
Heres my beloved,(after my family of course!) bought it April this year. Its a 2004 model on an 2005 plate,the private plate came with the bike so i decided to keep it,its something different.The only mods i have done are to remove the emissions stuff,remove the petal from the `y` pipe,drill the throttle slide,modded airbox cover and a rejet.........so far.
Why do some of the Duke II have spoke wheels?Is this a personal mod or something to do with the year of manufacture.
Except for the yellow gas tank vent line that looks like mine, # 438. CW claimed only 100 to be imported to the States in '96.
I hate this bike. Bought new. Big mistake. Wish I'd never seen it in CW. Still have the magazine. I think that is what sold me. Only good thing was that it got me back on street bikes after a very long absence. Still, it was just a bad choice of a re-starter for me. Handles great!
Sits in my living room with 5810 miles on it, & $9300 into it. $8500 new + Delorto carb, ( before Quicksilver got me killed!), $400, + $400 for new flywheel & stator. My labor.
I have 3 other street bikes & need to sell this one, but I am going to lose my ass.
This didn't help. What a surprise! : (
Sorry to add a sour note guys. The 950 Adventure seems like a kick ass ride, but this bike has made me very leery of KTM.
Oh, I didn't really try this aux saddle last year, but it might be more comfortable.
Bike is pretty cherry.
That is the 3rd Duke that I have heard of in the State.
Think it was a Duke II I saw in the shop at TMS here in Anchorage, 2-3 years ago. Someone bought it outside & brought up.
New 02?! In 06, WTF?! Maybe we should talk. Want another?
The Duke I had spoked wheels. The Duke II, cast, with one exception. Some 2001 Duke II Chili Red came with spoked wheels. The spoked wheels are a bit heavier than the cast, but stronger. Being stronger, they're preferred by those that go offroad more seriously, do jumps, etc. Less likely to bend, dent, and the like! Sizing of the spoked wheels on the Duke I and Duke II is the same, they're swappable. The rear spoked wheel fits other LC4 motos, but not the front. The front is a 17mm axle size, while other LC4 motos run 20mm or 26mm. It is possible to purchase a 20mm or 26mm front wheel, then have a machine shop create a sleeve to size it down to 17mm, but it takes connections, some money, and a good machinist.
