2007 KTM 525 XC-W gearing the same as EXC?

Recommended Posts

I don't know what models have what gear set, nor if the year even matters. 

 

from what I gather, for 6spd boxes the SX is close ratio, the MX is close ratio with a tall first...the EXC is wide ratio for streetability. 

 

XC is what?  And what is XC-W?

 

Any help appreciated...please correct me where I'm wrong

XC is close ratio and XCW is wide ratio.

 

Is the XCW the same as the EXC?

The 07 SX is not built on the same platform as the 2007 EXC/XC-W/XC. The EXC is the street legal version of the XC-W. Egine/trans is the same, just some emissions and safety additions.

 

If you go back to 2006, the SX is only a 4 speed. The XC and EXC are 6 speeds.

Thank you.  I found an '07 525XC-W that I'm interested in....needed to know it had the same trans as the EXC.

The exc/xcw is 6 speed all wide

The mxc is 6 speed all close

The SX is 4 speed close (same 1-4 as the mxc)

The SMR is the same as the MXC (6 speed all close)

The 06/07 450xc is wide 1-2 and close 3-6

Great info!  Thank you so much.

 

Does the XC-W not come with a lighting coil?  Is there some kind of place I can look this stuff up without having to page through hundreds of forum threads?  I greatly appreciate your help. :thumbsup:

Owner's manual will have a bunch of the data. Can be downloaded free from KTM.com . 

 

All 2007 XC, XCW & EXC RFS engines have the same 150W 12V Generator. Only the SMR has a 40W 12V generator.

The pinned thread on KTM talk (rfs section) has all the info.
