Well, it took me approx. 4 hours in the 12 degree cold..
I had to stop working quite often just to get feelings back into my fingers..

Here are some pictures...

The Magura kit seems to require 15-20% less force to actuate the clutch.. action is smooth and modulation seems to be better than cable.

My kit seems to have some air in the system, when the clutch lever is actuating, the slave cylinder makes a hissing sound..

After riding aroung in the neighborhood for 20 minutes, that was all I could stand in the 12 degree cold; I intentionally stayed mostly in 1st and 2nd gear, and start/stop alot.. the hydraulic cltch seems to be a success. Anyone tired of replacing cable and want a easy challenge to their mechanical skill.. I would recommend it.

Now if only the weather can get warmer.

Cool2 another shot

Here's another shot of the naked KTM Rallye..

It is a great confidence boost, after removing the huge 7 gallon tank.. everything seems possible..

In retrospect, I think I could have done things faster if it was just a few degrees above freezing..

Cool2 Re: CEV Switch

The CEV switch is part of the Rallye kit from Touratech.
I think they are teh older style. Look into the Touratech catalog for the specific item numbers. I gave away my catalog just last week for a R1150GS rider.

The CEV switch housing has a KTM part # as well. It is the same switch that comes stock on the dual sport models in Europe. It also came on the early Lc's!
Back when I was trying to mount the hyd. clutch on my '02 Adv. I actually found part of one of the CEV switches that Cat0020 has on his Rally laying around the shop and it worked like a charm! But, I didn't have the lower turn signal adapter so that was out!
Anyway BLAH BLAH BLAH! If anyone wants the top of that CEV switch (meaning the actual switch housing and lower clamp that clamp around the bars instead of a switch housing and turn signal adapter that clamp around the bars). Just send me an email and its yours!..........Granted I can still find it.....thats been a few months ago

I'll take it..

If you can find it. I will be putting another set of switches on my bike to control my Rally comptuer I am designing (shhh, secret stuff...). The other set of switches are the TOuratech with five bottons and two toggles. I could use one of the toggles for the turn signals.

The touratech won't fit on the bars with the hydraulic clutch and the standard switch (01) adventure) I think the CEV will fit. If it won't I can send it back to you, or on to the next person who wants to try it...

CAt0020, What is the history..

Of your rally bike. I am just curious..

Does nayone know what the fuel economy of the 660 motor is compared to the stock 640? I am ineresed in wha the range would be with the front 28 liter tank only.

Cool2 Re: CAt0020, What is the history..

Actually, I have never kept a record of how many miles I've ridden on the Rallye bike. I keep track of the hours, for now I have about 120 hours and have filled the front tank four times with 87 octane fuel. The fuel evens out between the three tanks once you fill it to certain level. The longest I've ridden as a segment on the Rallye bike was approx. 4 1/2 hours, I could not wait to get off the bike, but I remember the fuel in the main tank was still above 1/2 way, estimate of the trip was 170-180 miles.

I could not firgure out how the fuel travels between the three tanks, I once rode over an hour without opening any of the three petcock and the bike ran no problem.. maybe I left the knob on the right side of main tank open.

I am slowly figuring out how everything works on this bike, it is an adventure by itself.

Thanks, witzgall. So basically if one just tells their part guy to order a Magura hydraulic clutch kit for a KTM LC4, that'll result in eveything needed? (I always welcome an opportunity to whip out the Dremel!) If so, I'm gonna order up the stuff on Tuesday.


Arch,

1. Did you get one?

2. Did you fit it?

3. Did it work?

Hey folks,
Since your still here I decided not to start a new thread!

Arch and cat0020: I ordered the Magura Hydraulic kit for my 02 Adv. and had a seriously HARD time mounting it because of the signal control housing so before you order the Magura kit call your local Katoom shop (or email me at mine @ scott@dfwktm.com) and try to get a complete hydraulic clutch from the 03 Adv. The clamp for the NEW clutch is a little longer and will alow the lever adjuster to clear the control housing!


Have a good one,
The Magura Hymec clutch for the lc4 was not intended for the Adventure or any KTM w/ switchgear on the bars. I have talked to Magura, and they expect to release an Adventure specific Hymec by February. You can purchase the OEM hydraulic clutch from the dealer, but it's not available yet( probably still in Austria). Also for 2003 KTM has changed the clutch cover for the lc4. The new one has a sight window for checking oil level, so now you won't have to fight with the dip stick/gas tank clearance. This cover will be available from the dealer, and it will fit the 2002 Adventure.
