Thanks Rhys, Yeah KTM World what a place! I'm thinking of doing a bulk order from 'em might save some $$$. Question is KTM Talk much of a forum?

Instrument bracket

Hey OldDog, did you happen to get any pics of the instrument bracket before you removed it?

Filter is just a normal foam one, the airbox itself is much larger than a normal 640's, also see the holes drilled at the back, they're normally covered by mesh as is the top but the material is unavailable. The carb is a Dellorto PHM 40


Hope that helps

The 660 Rallye's run an overbored 40mm carbie which takes it out to 41mm.
The body says PHM40, so get the Verniers out and have a measure.

Great thread, I will get some good info for rebuilding mine

Hey have you thought about Painting it GS 'Ewan' Silver

Munn racing is good also for looking up part #'s etc, but they don't have the ones for your bike. I haven't order parts through either of them, yet.

I have through Sommer KTM in Germany though, and they were great. They can do emails (and phone calls too) in English and ship very fast. I'd recomend them over the US places as Sommer would be better at answering any LC4 questions you have, as they have the most experience.
I'm thinking of doing a bulk order from 'em might save some $$$. Question is KTM Talk much of a forum? Its OK, I'm a member there but don't go there because there's heaps more LC4 info here IMO

Make sure you flush out all the external oil lines and the frame,my bike had debri in both after its failure,just that nice frosty lapping paste stuff that would of taken many hours of engine life away if these were not flushed,also check the oil pumps,the pair of mine were no good,and also the most important thing is to make sure you set up the crankshaft end float to spec,get all your measurements correct!!!!!!,before installing the bearing inner race on the crank,check you got the shims in the parts you ordered,you will need them.

Thanks for the tip off's about the frame, it's probably full of junk too, and the crank float, just had a quick look at the crank and it's still got the old bearing inner races on there, i'll never get 'em off myself so it's going to the shop.

Eek

Okay folks, now it's time for the engine damage pics, get your tissues ready this is nasty stuff. I'm impressed with it though, this engine ran another 50 km's after the rider suspected a problem, and it started straight up the next day!




Hmmmm where did all this shrapnel come from?



Horrifying isn't it

Once the rest of the "cosmetic" work is done i'll start putting it back together. Heres a few pics of the bike mocked up

OldDog,

The thing that looks like a needle roller bearing race without any needles?

Is that the stuffed big end that caused the failure?

If it is and it still ran that is absolutely bloody amazing!

Yeah it was the big end that caused all the trouble all right, i've got most of the needle rollers, looks like three were ground up . I thought it may have damaged the head as well, but it appears fine, looks like all the damage as done on the power stroke which makes sense.
