  1. BTW, are all of the OEM AC pump covers similar, i.e. offer same benefits?

    lc4 rear rack? need to find one.

    There is a rack and top case available to fit the newer SMC bikes with dual exhaust. However, the rack weights 6 lbs!!! However, it does not seem to hurt the bikes handling. The KTM PN for the rack is 58612027050. The top case is actually from a 950 Adventure. There are two sizes. You can mount either 950 top case (large or small) on the KTM SMC rack. All of this stuff and more was clearly listed on the KTM web site this summer. The base plate for mounting the top case is sold separately from top case and its base plate. The base plate is molded plastic. It comes with the top case. The picture shows the rack before the base plate is attached. http://www.ktm.com/fileadmin/systemdata/hardequipment/58612027050_MR_640LC4_2005.jpg http://www.ktm.com/41.0.html?detailview=3&cHash=7890c20986# http://motocykle.ktm.sk/katalog/mounting-kit-for-topcases Try www.ktmhutt.com.

  3. Can anyone positively confirm (with photographic evidence) whether the KTM axle sliders (part numbers noted below) are compatible with and will work/fit on a '06 625 SMC? Note: looking for answer that is specific to this particular application, as it is not all that clear because not all axles, cap nuts, chain adjusters are the same. I've recieved conflicting information, so wanted to see if anyone has a clear answer on this or, even better, has installed these exact same sliders on this exact same bike. Quantity Item / Item Code Price AXLE SLIDERS - Front 548.03.045.000 $35.99 AXLE SLIDERS - Rear 548.03.046.100 $35.99
  4. One thing to do as well.... Post over at Jetting under Technical Forums. Include all info from previous posts and see if Eddie might be able to respond. Try not to adjust too many things at once. Popping isn't bad. Try sticking with 45 idle jet and adjust needle. Raise it, test, lower it test. This should be after you have a clean idle/fuel screw setting. A 182.5 sounds big. 45 idle sounds okay. Don't test with choke on - that's not the way you plan on running normally so eliminate that variable. Does it change when hot? Eddie is expert. So unless you going to make the shop fix the problem that they didn't fix when putting on the pipes, etc., check jetting forum.
  5. Sounds like a jetting issue. Your local KTM service mechanics that performed the work should be responsible for dialing the carb in so the bike achieves its maximum given your set up. After all, you did spend over $1,200 for Akro, airbox, carb jetting, right? Tell them it just ain't right. Get them to move needle. Don't think 45 idle is too big. Don't think it is the float level either before they try needle & fuel screw adjustments. How does it perform running at other throttle positions?
  6. Thanks for input. What exactly is "realign the wheel"? Is that the same as balancing the wheel (with rim weights)? Is it to align the chair tensioners? Or have someone check the disc itself for alignment (warp)? Is the disc adjustable? I cant see anyway that is adjustable to "align" it, as it just bolts to the hub. The calipers and brake housing are in a fixed alignment with the wheel in the vertical and lateral axis, I think. It only adjusts by sliding back and forth horizonally to account for chain tightening/adjustment. The pads are not adjustable, they just slide in. Do you have any information on the computer alignment specifications that you refer to? How does the shop use the computer to align the wheel? Does your local KTM dealer do computer alignments? How much? The bike is brand new. The wheel and disc have not been dropped, dinged, bent, hit, or nicked.
  7. I'd not be surprised by this squeaking happening later on when the bike is a little older, but this is a new SMC with less than 500 miles on it. And the noise started soon after doing the sprocket change out. So I hope it will be fixed with sandpaper and brake cleaner fluid. Could it in anyway be caused by a too tight chain? I think I got the tension/freeplay right, but.... I am a novice.
  8. With leaner pilot (42) it now has slight popping. This is reassuring, but feels hollow on power. Is there such a thing as a 43, or 44? Feels like somewhere in between 42 and 45 would be nice. Don't want to over analyze this. But the stumble is annoying. Otherwise throttle response is good while running. It is a little jerky at the bottom when in slow corners and stopping/starting off the line. Very small throttle movement causes jerks. Is this my weak throttle control? I'm just barely twisting it for a fairly big jump. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. That's right, Eddie. The carb comes stock with a throttle limiter (slide stop). Plug in: 2006 Super Moto 625 SMC Engine Carburetor - Item #18 58331029014 SLIDE STOP SXC/SM 03 And a NEEDLE SET SCREW (part #25) http://www.sudco.com/fcrmx.html I'm looking for confirmation that the Needle set screw is the part to use that doesn't limit the throttle AND the confirmed part number of the correct part to use AND location that has the correct part right now (some places only on backorder). Trying to find the correct part now and at the best available price. Thanks, yotoma
  10. Is anyone 100% sure what the part # is AND where they are available now. Lots of backordered items out there, but can't wait anymore. If someone gots, I'd like to talk.
  11. I took out the original stock needle that came in the carb, and contrary to what the Owner's Manual says, it was an OBDVT. The manual said also that it comes with a #45 pilot jet, but it came with a #42. The fuel mixture screw was at 3 and 3/4 turns out! Thats what the dealer must have prepped it at because I haven't touched it. I'm putting in Scott's t-handle fuel screw and will set initially at 1-1/2 turns out. yotoma
  12. Thanks for taking a shot at this. Here are the edited instructions for a 625 SMC/SXC (JDK007) that are indicated for my location/conditions: 1. Note - Temperature above 80F "Use the RED marked needle with the clip in the 3rd from top groove (#3)." Honolulu is above 80F. 2. "Replace the main jet with a #170 main for riding from Sea Level to 4000ft elevation." I'm running 85% of the time at less than 100ft. 3. "Install the #45 pilot jet from the kit". fine 4. "Fuel mixture screw out 1 1/2 turns". fine 5. "Check to see that the pump timing adjustment screw is set to a gap of 2.5-2.8 mm." Haven't checked this yet. Is this gap a "stock" setting? 6. "Install thick or thin O-ring over the pump timing screw and wrap it around the pump linkage." Is this pump speed increase key to crisp bursts of power? I recognize that this set up will most likely result in a vast improvement over stock set up. But I'm wanting to skip a step or two later by setting up the carb with a more custom/dialed in configuration based on the bikes particular alterations (air box, end caps) and my more specific weather and riding situation the first time. Is that possible based on the information provided below? BTW- I forgot to mention that the stock jet needle is OBEKR according to the manual. It is hard for me to understand how this recommended set up could apply to every 625 SMC/SXC. How is this recommended set up supposed to apply to everything from a totally stock SMC to a totally pumped up SXC? I guess the recommendations are just ballpark, right? So... based on all info below can anyone offer further refinements based on sound carburation dynamics for the initial rejetting set up? Cheers big time!
  13. Help! Cant find torque specs. for front sproket nut on LC4 ('06 625 SMC). This is a 27mm. nut on the 625 SMC. Anybody find a good link to various torque values for LC4? Looked at archive, but no luck. Thanks!
  14. Need to find cheap supplier & correct PART NUMBER # I checked archives and searched online to find reference to the correct part # for a "standard FCR MX needle set screw" that can replace? the throttle stop piece that comes stock with the new Keihin 41mm FCR carbs on '06 KTM 625 SMC. I do not want to make one by cutting/filing/slotting the original piece. I'm looking for confirmation of the correct part number for the replacement piece. The manual lists stock "NEEDLE SET SCREW CPL." as #57331032000, SUDCO lists stock "Needle Set Screw" as #021-727. BTW- I'm working under the assumption that the standard carb modification includes removal of the stock "Slide Stop SXC/SM" (#58331029014) and modification of the needle set screw. If this is wrong, I stand corrected. What is replacement needle set screw part number and where can I get it most inexpensively? Looks like dealing with SUDCO involves min. purchase and expensive postage for even such a small part. Does a Thumper Talk member have an extra one for sale? What other good sources for this piece? Thanks for help and/or links to detailed relevant past threads or websites.
