2002 LC4 640 Enduro

Does anyone here know if KTM sold the LC4 Enduro (640) in the US in 2002? Or was it only sold in Europe in '02? :)

KTM did sell the enduros in 2002. Great bikes too. The E holds an extra quart of oil in the frame, has a cooling fan and steering lock. I bought mine about a year and a half ago and I love it. I found mine through Cycletrader.com . Very fun bike, too pretty to get very serious in the dirt, but can do anything you ask of it. I keep dual-sport tires on mine (I like IRC's) and have 15, 16 and 17 tooth counter-sprockets for different rides. KTMtalk.com is a nice reference tool, too. I just got a 525 to use strictly for dirt, but if I could only own one bike the LC4 would be it.

I am in the process of buying a 2000 LC4 Enduro with 657 actual miles. I've been riding a KLR 650 and looking forward to the KTM for better going in the dirt.

Are the 2000 specs similar to the 2002? Any major differences?



I think the LC4's improved incrementally each year during the late '90's-early 2000's, but I'm not sure what years have what. A 2000 would have the electric start, I think, but might not have the counter-balance shaft they introduced about that time. More vibration but probably a fine bike. The carbs ktm used improved nearly yearly around then too. Mine (2002) came with a Mikuni which worked fine but in 2003 or 04 they started using the kehnin pumper which is a bit more fun. I hope this helps.

no kehin fcr on the 2003 lc4e 640 , mikuni bst 40 , tps was added either 2003 or 2004.

Hmm I had heard that 03 had both the Kehein carb and an improved bearing on the transmission output shaft

No Kehin On Lc4 Dual Sports , Sxc And Smc Got Them In 2004 . I Believe No Dual Sport Lc4 640 For Us This Year, Or Sxc .bummer. :)

      Who says you cant be competitive on a 550 lb Bike??

      What are these? Big heavy 550- 600 pound road bikes with dirt tires and an upright position?
      That seems to be them.
      To me an "adventure bike" is one that you travel on remote roads which aren't developed.
      If you're not able to pick it up when you drop it ( and you should daily ), then it's not an adventure.
      Try picking up a 600-700 pound bike by yourself on a loose steep road....ain't gonna happen.
      So it beats me why these bike manufacturers don't take a DR,KLR,XR and give them a 6 speed tranny, and a modern suspension. These are the real adventure bikes...fun,light and you can power slide and get her loose without worrying about being crushed when you drop. The only one that's up to speed is the KTM. Instead, these are stuck in the 1980's tech department.

      Let's face it, TT is a pretty good resource for dual sport riders, but not so much for riders of large adventure bikes. Late last year, we starting working on building a community dedicated to large adventure bike riders and we'd like to invite you to join us. You can find us at http://www.xladv.com
      The community is still a baby, but it seems to be steadily growing and some good ride reports are already out there. While it's based around discussion forums, we did bring over our Virtual Garage and Reviews System. We also have a community photo gallery where you can share your adventures and browse though the shots of others.
      So, if riding large adventure bikes is one of your passions, we'd love to have you.
