I can get 450 km out of mine no worries, on longer runs taking it easy fully loaded with luggage can get 500 km,
Still haven't seen any other bike that can match them in standard trim.

Cheers Phil

When I set my 625 up with an MSC Dampner and riser I needed just a bit more height (6'4") Suttos said the RC highs were the highest.

That combo worked out perfect for me when standing.

Thanks

Yeah my last 625 had the msc damper which gave a great rise. I still needed 15mm increase with the standard bars..

The Scott's doesn't allow as much height from risers as it is above bar..

I will try the raptor bars. After a few measurements tonight I think it will work. Bit of cable re routing.. Hopefully

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

joe, my standard ktm bars measure 790 w / 98 high so those renthal figures seem reasonable when you consider my bars have had 6 years of abuse.

And the steinhouse link I posted earlier is to a sub bar mount that fits a scott damper ( expensive, but tat's not an issue for those of us who keep bikes for more than a few weeks)

I did a trip from Melb to Cape York last year with 3 riders on 640ADV mine could go 500K Bike 2 450k (bit bigger rider) Bike 3 was out at 300K all bikes were jetted exactly the same only diff was bike 3 still had pollution stuff connected does anyone know if that would be the cause of excessive fuel consumption?

Oh funny farkkker

Ok, thank, looked at the Steinhouse option and have one coming. That should work for me.

That way I can use riser to raise the bar or raise the mount as needed and I like the standard bars.

I can't say definitively that the anti pollution stuff is the entire cause of that sort of fuel consumption (which is ridiculously high).
What I can say is that I don't know of any vehicle that gets better fuel economy with the addition of anti pollution gear, and I know that every motor I have removed it from gets an instant increase in engine response, power, and fuel economy. The differencse can range from mild to quite drastic.
Did bike 3 hold a lower gear and more revs too? Did it have a poorly adjusted float? Was the final gearing different? There are many other factors that may also have had a cumulative impact.

non oem sidestand

Has anyone got/used a non oem sidestand on the lc4 620sc/sx 640adv/hard etc?,i have a 620sc 98 model that has a centerstand which is missing the springs/bellcrank etc,i want to get if possible a cheap/non oem side stand assembly to put on this bike.Anything around that will mount on oem frame lugs/swingarm and work ok?,and if so who was the supplier.

I've got an sw motech sidestand, it works with the centrestand BUT it shares a mounting bolt with the centrestand and they use a glorified alloy piece of junk that came loose (despite super loctite ) and is somewhere around boulia. A few years ago there was a group buy of high tensile shouldered bolts that were a reasonable replacement, I bought a couple but am now on my last one

Alternatively, ballards used to sell a sidestand that clamped to swing arms???

I've got the swmotech sidestand too, it's a good bit of kit that also likes to take bark from your shins when it auto-retracts.
I can recommend them as a solution.

Thanks GodSilla all gearing was the same Unfortunately I'll never find out as the guy has sold the offending bike I would have liked to got to the bottom of it as I can't see how it could have used so much fuel and still run well

I have a spare SM motech stand and the springs you can have if you can round up the mounting bracket
