I'd offer my left nut for a aux tank like that.

Rear Tanks

Bought them form a guy here in Germany. I payed the same amount what I payed for the bike. Very hard to find. What a surprise. Got them complete with a 660 Rallye rear frame. They have been in purple before from a factory dakar bike from the 90ies...

That unpainted purple plastic, I think it's polyethylene and it "breathes" or gas fumes pass through it. What did you use to prime it?

[QUOTE=Geekventure;10568048]Hello everyone,

I am excited to finally find others that know (and own!) the EGS-E!

I think I'm one of those few "rumored" with the darker shade of orange, but I'm not sure...
My copies of its birth sale in this country say that it's a 1998 620 RallyC and my VIN# ends in ...8744

I have been the proud owner of one since I purchased mine (1,800mi) from Keith A. (of Pick-A-Part Cycles - Evergreen, CO) on October 2nd, 2003. He evidently purchased it from Jeff H. (Sacramento, CA) who bought it from "Motorcycle Performance Center" (Roseville, CA).




What's is the rear tire?

Original owner

I think I'm the original owner of the #2 bike. I cut the sub-frame and added the BigGun exhaust, and also cut the original low pipe from 2 into 1. At one point it had a different silencer/exhaust. It also had aluminum panniers on it. The bike was sold from KTM Gresham in Oregon. I bought it new.

2000

serial #- 8575
engine#- 4593

This is the parts bike and was never titled until 2000. This supposedly is Jimmy Lewis' old bike. It has the high exhaust and a non-cush hub. I don't have any of the low exhaust parts for it. The motor has a bad crank bearing. It has a number 2 best in desert sticker on it and #065 race number.

1998

serial#- 8791
engine#5078

This bike has 6300 miles on it and is all original except for the high exhaust. The PO cut a piece of the left sub frame that supports the low exhaust. It was a clean cut and I have the piece. I have all the parts for the low exhaust. The only weird thing is that the original owner cut and capped the midpipe where it splits to the left and right side. So it can be a low exhaust on the right side only, I can find a spare midpipe.



The plan is to rebuild the motor and take the best parts from both bikes and put it on the clean bike. Then I will build the other one back up and sell it. At least that's the plan for now. It is nice to have an Adventure again. I always loved the orange of the 97 and 98's.

Thanks, MotoGrandpa

Now on to going through her ..... like swapping out the carb, it has the edelbrock in it - but it also came with a Mikuni to throw in.

More later - as I am working off a mild hang over from Dagwood's B-Day party yesterday ..........

I sold it to a gentleman in Puyallup WA. He has all sorts of KTM projects. If you look at the first post in this thread his name is associated with that bike.
