Got it! KTM 660 Rallye

Yow, got a 2002 KTM 660 Rallye. It was previous owned by MBaars who rode across Russia/Mongolia to Japan and Australia. After he returned to Holland (2008) the bike was stored in a garagebox.

It was for sale and i'm very very happy that i could lay my hand it :)

The photo is a very poor but so you got a idea ;)



there have to be a lot of things to do:
1) New front Rim
2) IMO/ICO
3) complete rebuild (i gonna strip it to the bone and rebuild it, with my old man's help)
4) new fairing painting (the fueltanks gonna be the hardest job to get a nice smooth painted skin)

the new colors.... i'm thinking of the Repsol color scheme... Other idea's are welcome and info of course.

I hate people like you who own the bikes I lust after (but I soon get over it).

Nice score - see, I'm feeling better already.

That thing on the front guard is a roo-whistle, and they come in pairs for around $7.

They seem to work mostly, and tend to wake up some other critters too. I have them on all my bikes and cars, and space them apart so they phase in and out of their harmonic range (that's why they're sold in pairs eh) which tends to get the furry bastards attention. There's still no guarantee they won't just jump in front of you, kangaroos are the animals with the least road-sense ever. The roadsides here are littered with dead 'uns.

If the roo-whistle doesn't work, let me know and I'll take the bike off your hands.

That's the real deal...first four places in the PD.

I'd like to see the cylinder head and know the valve sizes. Carb, jetting, cam type.

Well they are called something different in Canada, not may Kangaroos here. We use them for the deer and depending on where you live they can out number the people. Couldn't say they really work but they are cheap and could save tons of money if you hit one, or your life.

My wife felt they acted like critter attractors, as the problem got worse while she had them on, and then reduced again when she took them off.

THAT right there explains why they always look like the rear wheel was sticking out the back unusually far. I'd put it down to a bit of an optical illusion due to the rear tanks and low-then-upswept twin exhausts.

I've always lusted after a Rallye or better yet a real factory racer. Not because I'd ever ride one to its limits, but because they are essentially the pinnacle of development for the LC4. More motor, more fuel, more stability at speed - what's not to like for distance adventuring?

You lucky bastard!

The colors above speak for themselves as quintessential KTM.

The video in the links is way cool.

Send me a PM with your email address, I've got a nice PDF where somebody document the rebuild of a 660 Rally of that vintage.

ok, another step forward.

Frame is ok, at first sight i thought ok repaint the frame but it's in good shape and has the orginal color :)
So is the engine, a good shape, all the oil filters gonna be replaced, better save then sorry.


Just ordered a new battery, the on it was complete dead.
Next thing is to replace all the fuel and vent lines. And maybe also all the quickreleases of the fueltanks. Anyone a glue where to find the transparant yellow ventlines?

The turnlights i hate them and make the bike looking stupid imo. There is enough choice among led turnsignals that are just small enough to bee legal.
