Question Rear Foot pegs

I have fitted the rear foot pegs on my 625 sxc. They are great specially when you fall with the bike as they take all the beatting and not the graphics on the tank.

However they do cost an arm and a leg. But come in very handy when lifting the babes.

This 18l tank story is expensive. Does the ascerbis tank fit the 625 sxc?

18L tank part#58407013400 $369.00
Comfort Seat part#57907340000 $93.95
Gas Cap part#58407008100 $69.64
Fuel line part#58407016000 $4.34

KTM has everthing in stock and available.
Ooof...almost $600 for a tank



dirtrider,

What's the breakdown for the big tank (28l) parts wise? I've been considering that one over the 18l for my '03 SXC.

Xtra capacity, the tank appears to provide some rad protection & its cheaper.

*crickets*

So, what about the Rally tank for the 625?

Cheaper by $40 ($39.05 for Creepy)...

Will this tank bolt up, no problemo?

I know I'll need:
  • Comfort Seat part#57907340000 $93.95
  • Gas Cap part#58407008100 $69.64
What about the fuel line: Fuel line part#58407016000 $4.34?

Here's the huge tank, I can't figure out what the part on the inside right of the tank is for:

  • Comfort Seat part#57907340000 $93.95 Make sure its the ADV comfort seat not the SXC / lc4e one
  • Gas Cap part#58407008100 $69.64
What about the fuel line: Fuel line part#58407016000 $4.34?

Here's the huge tank, I can't figure out what the part on the inside right of the tank is for: Thats the petcock for the cross over fuel line. theres one one the left as well, just above the on/off/res petcock. the indent above that with the 2 screw holes is for thefront mounting lugs.

This will give you an idea of what you need and how it all goes together

Will somebody please post some pics of there SXC with an IMS tank. I already have the 18L tank with LC4 seat. I only put it on for big trips and leave the stock SXC tank on the rest of the time. It will go like 300 miles on that tank, but for aggresive offroad riding the extra width has started to annoy me. I take my SXC on a lot of trails that are suited more to a EXC then a 300lb SXC so I like to keep it as slim as possible.

I remember his SXC, went to someone in Cali IIRC.



I searched for steelhead's posts & found this thread.

Seems like with the Biggun tank, the range wouldn't be much more than the 18L...still cheaper though, specially if I could retain the stock seat...

The tank fits on the bike...sorta... and it holds 3.7-ish gallons but it's fair to say you get what you pay for when you shell out the $600+ for the OEM stuff.

Thanks for posting the pics NED, but I see what you mean about the fit. DO the orange side flares secure to the IMS tank using all of the factory bolt holes? Do you have problems with crap getting in that big gap between seat and tank? Has any one mounted the KTM hard parts 13L tank to a SXC? Wow a couple more questions and I will sound like a curious five year old! LOL

You could always get ahold of a pair of rear tanks (Rallye) - sure would even out the weight distribution.

Or I could just fill my camel back up with gas. Extra 120 oz. of gas and I could pour it in with the handy hose.

So what how far do you get on the stock tank in Km's ?
What size tank 9Lt or 12Lt ?
What carb FCR or BST.

On my 640 ADV jetted BST, opened airbox, sports muffler -

If I'm touring I get around 18-20 km per Lt.

Racing, etc will see 8-12 km/lt

I have the 06 SXC & all is standard (FCR) & 9L tank
I get @ 90+k before I hit reserve, there's no way I can go on a ride requiring more than @110k before fuel is needed which really shits me

Thats normal for most enduro style bikes, when ridden in the manner they were designed to be, e.g. single track, fire trails and getting up it.

I dunno if anyone has tried the hot water & compressed air trick on one to gett an extra couple of liters.

KTM was selling the last of the LC4e with an ADV kit, bash plate and 18Lt tank, so there maybe a few 12Lt tanks sitting around unused, you just gotta find one on the cheap, eh.
