Maybe the stock magnets suck. Perhaps not even rare earth. They've got small magnets nowadays which are pretty scary. Used to be, ouch that pinches, when you get your finger slammed between two. Now it's like, crunch!

Edited to say.. no I don't believe trailtech makes an LC4 replacement flywheel. Maybe they can do some custom work on them though.

Gods you guys are too funny!!

I'm tempted to show that 300W KTM viber to my wife, but I think I'd get a good slap instead of the good stuff


Anyway - as for what I need "more power" for. Driving lights for one. Right now I have my hi-beam run in tandem with the low-beam. That in itself is 110W. Toss in the fact that I rarely run at 6K rpms for max output, plus the other amp/watt suckers and I'm at the limit of safe charging of the battery.

Regular, off-the-shelf halogen driving lights run 55W apiece. Some run 35W, but are too cheezy to mess with.

The math is simple, there's just not enough power output to run non-HID driving lights. Even if I undid my OE light mod, that's still pulling 165W just in lighting alone. Not gonna work.

I like the TrailTech 13W HID lights. A pair of those would be nice, but at $200? I'd also like a few more options. Thus my request to find more power. If I can rig up something to pump up the power for less that a couple hundred, then I could get any kind/style of driving lights I like.

Of course if the power increase would cost more than some HID lights, then it's all a moot point isn't it.

So there ya go.

Bottom line here is that there ISN'T a simple or cheap or verified way to increase the generator output. I have my answer. I guess I'll be ordering some TrailTech HIDs....

1995 620 rxc spark mapping switch

Is anyone familiar with the spark mapping handlebar switch on a 95 620? Mine has one with three positions marked a a dot, H and P. It is presently in the H position and is impossible to move the slide switch into the other positions. I do not have the owners manual for the bike but assume this is in fact a spark curve selector. Any info out there on this? Thanks

You dug up an 8 year old thread

Anyways, there is a big thread, search 620rxc or rxc620.

To answer your question, that's the head;light switch. dot is for off, p is for park? Can't remember exactly. What i do remember though is that the switch is stuck on H position because DOT requires the headlight to be on at all times. What you do is replace the shiny mounting screw with one that is shorter, this will free the switch up to be functional again. What KTM did was to use the same switch for USA and Europe models but used a shiny long screw in the usa to jam the switch in one position.

sounds screwy but i kid you not
