I'm looking at a KTM 660 SMC from 2003, it has around 12 000 km on it and I was wondering if anyone has any experience regarding when the engine needs to be rebuilt? It obviously depends on how its been ridden and maintained, but any number that can give me the right idea helps.
I've had the bike 3 years, mate had it from new,
How do I check if it has been derestriced? Just dosent pull as well/hard as my previous Berg FS650.
Best place for new plastics?
And has anyone advice on best way to remove indicators and headlight to replace with number board.
got back from a ride recently and notice one drop of oil under the bike the next morning. Searched around and couldn't find any obvious external leaks, took off the alternator cover and found a small pool of oil inside. I checked behind the flywheel with a torch and the bottom of the...
This has probably been asked a bunch of times but here goes anyway.
I'm having trouble getting my 660 to wheelie in 3rd gear. Gearing is 16/38, stock headers with Sebring silencer, opened airbox and jetted to match. SAS has been removed and blanked off. The bike powers and clutches up...
when you go to pull in the clutch on my 660, the lever has about 5-10mm of play before starting to resist and disengage. It often takes a few tries to shift into first gear and occasionally the bike will lurch forward slightly and stall out when it goes into first, but there doesn't...
Having some minor rough running issues with my 660. Started with the auto decomp ticking last year on idle and after having replaced that i was hoping for the ticking to stop but it has not.
It is better than it was but still not 100%
Starting it up is perfect normally first kick and...
Familiar problems with my 660, but this time a little bit different. It'll start first kick from cold with choke and first kick from hot. The issue is when it's been run for 2-3 minutes or so then cuts out and and has to be restarted - the bastard just won't go! I stood for 20 minutes...
I've read a lot of posts about fitting RS125 wheels on the LC4's. I've picked up a cheap pair of wheels with discs/sprocket etc and can get the 3mm skimmed from the rear brake disc posts as recommended.
The only thing I haven't found yet is the dimensions needed to get spacers made up...
Trying to recommission my friends 660 smc after 2 years standing. It is a 2004 model with Keihin FCR MX-41 carb and an Akrapovic full titanium exhaust. Tank has been drained and carb is stripped and sonic cleaned. The jets in the carb are as follows:
Main jet 170
Idling jet 45
I've recently purchased a 2006 660 SMC, which apart from needing some basic TLC is pretty sweet.
I love it, hell of a step up from my old DRZ
One issue though is that, when pinning it, the speedo reading goes completely mental, reading ridiculous figures, but when cruising along it...
On the way home from work today, I noticed that my clutch handle did not go all the way in as before, it stopped about 1 cm from the handlebar,
so I changed the clutch oil and saw that the oil was dark, saw 2-3small small metal-like particles 0.5 mm in size
then added new oil in...
