1997 Lc4??

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be picking up a 1997 LC4 on the cheap in a few weeks, and I know nothing at all about KTM's.

This particular machine has been sitting in a house for the best part of two years, only having been started up a handful of times. However, it still starts and runs fine, although the battery did eventually die.

Is there anything I should know about this model?? What's the performance like?? Obviously, it's a few years old, so performance will be a little different from what I'm used to, but how does it compare?? Is it reliable?? It's done 9000 miles which isn't bad for the year.

But my God are the graphics bad!!!!!!! I HAVE to replace them - are panels still available for the 1997 model and/or would panels from later models of LC4's fit onto it???

Cheers,

Riffton.

i recently was in the same situation. i picked up a 96 lc4 400 that i'm still working some kinks out off. mine was the super comp so it didn't have the bad graphics, but the plastics were beat up. you can still order plastics, the part numbers are on the back side of each panel.

good luck.

You can get original plastics and decals, or newer plastics will fit.

Especially if you grab a later model tank and seat with them in which case you can put any years plastics on that you like I believe.

If you're not in a big hurry, watch E-Bay. Various body parts and seats come up there for sale frequently. I've had three RXCe KTM's, still have 2 of them and they have been bulletproof. Depending on the carb you have you may have some issues. They're fun to ride and I wouldn't give mine up.
