depends on your personal preferences... if you are asking what year plastics would match the color of that tank I would say only the earliest 640 Adventure (~1998 was orange) because the 2004- orange has sparkles

just got a 625, needed a bigger tank, and then needed the comfort seat. perhaps I am missing something very obvious, but I do not understand how to attach the seat? the 1/4 turn lock on my old seat, the reciever of this 1/4 turn is not close to the stud on the comfort seat.

do I have the wrong seat?

I think you might have the wrong seat. I don't think the 'comfort' seat needed has the same latching mechanism as the stock SXC seat. The comfort seat you need will attach by two bolts through the sub-frame rails on each side.
You can use the parts finder at Bike Bandit to look up the seat by part number and the associated diagram showing the mounting points.

On my 05 mdl SXC, the comfort seat mounts via the hole in the rail above the rear guard same as an adventure.

Hello everyone. I have a question. Does anyone know if the Acerbis KTM 450 EXC tank on the picture would fit at all on my 2005 SXC 625 and if it would require any modifications?

no... 18and12 ltr lc4 and duke tanks.. and 28 ltr adventure tanks with supports.. first two need a 640e type seat and 28 needs an adventure seat.

you might be able to make it fit with mods

Comfort Seat No Longer Available?!!

I just went to order a 18L tank, comfort seat, and other related parts from Munn Racing and they informed me that the comfort seat is no longer available. They did a little research and the "standard seat" (2000-2004 LC4 640 Enduro) will fit and is still available. Part number is: 58407040800

Anyone ride with this seat? I was hoping to get a more comfortable setup than my stock 03 625 SXC seat, and the added fuel capacity was a bonus. But if the "standard seat" isn't any better than my stock one I may have to rethink this. If anyone has any feedback about the seat I'd love to hear your opinions.

18L tank on 625

I have the 18L tank with comfy seat. Works pretty well. Stock seat will not fit (for sure). Comfort seat has larger, wider pan AND more foam. It's not just more foam. The seat is considerably wider to spread the weight (so-to-speak). I've modified it a bit so it is even comfier! (I've used it for pretty long rides, and am quite happy with it.) Not sure about the "standard seat" but the seat pan would have to be different to properly mate with the 18L tank. The tank has a mating bracket and cutout that does not fit with the stock seat. If the standard seat fits, you can always pull off the vinyl cover and add/change the foam to make the fit better.

Also, comfort seat uses a single bolt in middle of seat (on my 2003) to connect seat to frame. It never really fits that well. Stock seat uses 1/2turn latch at rear of seat to fit into mating latch on the bike's frame.

Fully outfitted (with tank and happy trails luggage racks) I think the 625sxc makes one of the best DS adventure bikes out there! Light, powerful, agile. Now if I could just get the vibes down and the tranny range up, life would be good! (Love the 690 but the tranny range is sooo narrow. Dumb thing that should have been real easy for KTM to fix.)

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

cheers

Ya, the stock SXC seat definitely doesn't fit with the 18L tank. I can't decide if I should buy the tank and get this "standard seat", or try to find a used comfort seat. I do love how adaptable the bike is for just about any terrain.

For vibration I added some heavy brass bar end weights. That did wonders for the handlebar vibration. I also put the rubber foot peg inserts in. Now it's really just the seat that's uncomfortable.

The Adventure seat is needed with the 28L tank.

Megsy,the 18L KTM tank does bolt directly on, however it requires the KTM comfort seat to go with it.

The standard 625SXC seat will not fit the 18L tank.

The KTM comfort seat is much more comfortable than stock, I did close to 15,000kms on my 625SXC with the comfort seat & 18L KTM tank.

The standard KTM rear foot pegs were very good on my 625, very solid, robust setup.

Cheers, Sol..

Reusing tank graphics?

Hi Folks,

I'm fitting an 18 litre tank to my 625 SXC. Is it possible to remove the existing decals from the 9 litre tank and reuse them on the 18 litre one? I know the easy answer is try it and see, however if anybody has tried and succeeded I'd appreciate any tips. I know about using a mild detergent mix to place and locate decals - done that before. Cheers.

Attempting to revive this presumably dead thread, but does anyone know if the *stock* tank for the 2004 625 SXC will fit with the comfort seat (currently using it for my 18L LC4 tank).

Heard a lot about how the stock seat wont fit the 18L tank but not the other way around...
