  1. I had lots of rattle too before the service (on idle and mostly after the first cold start in the morning) but now, after the service is gone. My mechanic told me that the noise was caused by the valves. Just needed to be adjusted properly . By the way , i have a 98 Adventure with 20.000 km on it (motor only 12.000).

    Welcome !!!

    selecting neutral

    Its supposed to do so. Just need to get used to it.
  4. The LC4 motor is very reliable and it has been around for more 10 years. If you take good care of it by changing oil (best quality oil) and filters every 2500/3000 km, warm it up correctly before start pulling hard it will last for a long time. It is also important not to do long trips with steady gas, always changing the rpm is very good for the motor. I know a guy that has done 80.000 km with his LC4. Of course maybe another motor will brake down after 25 000 km but its an exception. We should not forget that the same motor does the Paris-Dakar.
  5. Hi, my bike does the same and heard other people reporting the same. it supposed to be the autodecompressor ticking. shouldnt do any arm . Let it check anyway from a mechanic. My mechanic told me is normal . Cheers
  6. I have the full Akrapovic titanium system and it does a great difference in both torque and hp's . The right exhaust to use on any LC4. Its the KTM factory exhaust which is sold only by KTM. Here a picture of the collectors and muffler: [image]http://www.ultramotard.com/bb/album_pic.php?pic_id=3313[/image] [image]http://www.ultramotard.com/bb/album_pic.php?pic_id=3314[/image] I have a Dell'Orto Carb. but soon I will install a brand new Mikuni TMR41 .
