From a 01 KLR 650(sob sob) to a 98 RX/c 620... I like!

Recommended Posts

When I woke up a few weeks ago to find out that my 01 KLR 650 was stolen, it sucked. Man I loved that bike. It would take me anywhere! It was matte black,renthal bars,jet kit,supertrapp,ect. Ready for the spring. Bummer. So I kinda felt like I was cheating on my girl that was out of town when I bought this RXC 620. Man! What a nimble little cat! All stock. Except for the carb. I'm glad because I heard that the original edlebrock had some design flaws. This thing is fast. And quiet. I like! Does any one know what the differences are between the models 620 RXC and the 620 LC4? Man,that motor is a beast! I just need to gear it a little wider for the freeway. Oh and does any one know some tricks to remove those thick factory decals?

If you haven't figured it out yet, all the KTM 620 RXCs are LC4s. They use the same LC4engine on many KTM models from the 90s to even todays bikes, some dirt, some dirt/street, some street, some enduro. For the freeway, some people put on a smaller rear sprocket and a bigger front sprocket. Factory decals come off with heat guns or blow dryers but be careful not to cook the plastic. I used to have a 96 620 Super Comp LC4 with a FMF pipe and discs and it was super powerful. I paid way too much for it but enjoyed it for a couple of years. Just a few weeks ago bought a 95 RXC 620 with a Dellorto carb and this one for a swinging deal. Love the RXCs. Enjoying it every day.

      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.
