I don't think its so dead, this is important stuff for us noobs!!!

So this Remus thing, dual cans on a LC4 Adventure, or just the retard, I mean motard, versions? Would that be worth something? What about spark arrestors? Power/fuel efficiency trade-off? I think the SXC is probably fine for my needs; I wonder why y'all need so much more power (that you would sacrifice range)???

Not really interested in the Remus myself, I like the weight savings
of a 2 into 1.
Just posted the picture to add to the other options available.

Question

Hello!

I'm currently looking for a slip-on muffler for my 2001 LC4 640 and I don't want to spent a lot of money. For those who'd like to know, Leo Vince has two alluminum cans for the model until 2003 and they're 96dB and 100dB (open version) both @ more or less the equivalent of $350. (prices in Poland :) and for models 2003 -... around $450 up to something ridiculous like $800 but I don't know the details. I was also interested in BIG GUN exhausts because they seem good for a reasonable price. The problem for me is that shipping to Poland would be almost as much as the pipe itself.

I just installed the Titanium pipe from G-Force.

Ordered it from http://store.solidperformance.com/

It's a bit loud but really wakes things up. Throttle
response is super crisp now.

For you older LC4 guys, the Up-Tite Racing exhaust was the thing to have. Of course, that was *in the day*, with that old vintage bike.

It was a carbon steel, nickel plated exhaust port to Supertrapp mufflered affair. I doubt they make them anymore, but they turn up for sale on ktmtalk.com now and again.

I have one on my krusty....err..trusty '96 RXC. With 13 plates, it has well-proven baby-waking properties, and makes my neighbors chase me with rakes and machetes. Makes lots more power with the FCR41 carburetor than the OE stuff.

That ol' KTM lays waste to my F650 Dakar. Up 'til about 80mph anyway.

My new sxc muffler is rattling....

I just removed it to install some sealant tape and realized it has something loose inside. Could a weld be broken? Do I have to un-rivet it to check it? I've only had it on for about 2500 miles. It still sounds great but I wonder what's up with the innards. Any help is appreciated!

Just drill out the rivet and tap the hole. then you can just scerw it back together when you're done repaking it. Easy. Should probably be repaked every 2500-3000 miles anyway.
When you do it take pictures...I want to see what kind of sparky's inside.

Here's another one http://blogs.motorbiker.org/blogs.ns...4803MWEKD4.htm

KTM/Akrapovic slip on to fit OE LC4 front pipes.

So my SXC Supermoto pipe has been eating packing. From the factory the noise level was just what I wanted. Then the packing burned out after 15 months. That wasn't a surprise, so I picked up some repack from FMF and repacked it.

Lasted 6 hours. Okay, we'll try some different material. Get some Moose packing.

Lasted 3 hours. Starting to get pissed. Get some other Moose packing, the yarn stuff that comes in a kevlar bag. Seeing as how the oem material was a yarn, figured that should do it.

Lasted 8 hours. Phucke The oem packing is not sold. Closest stuff is for the 625? pipe, but very expensive. Like $100 expensive. While I was overseas, got some from a local shop for $60. Good deal. Repacked it yesterday, and fired it up.

Noisier than the burnt out shit I just removed!!!

WTF do you have to do to get the stock packing???? Blow the CEO? In light of my problems, I will endeavour to never again buy a can that has packing. It's just not worth the effort.

And all those repack jobs? The first was done at my place, just prior to going to the Hoedang/BYOB. The rest were on the road. Joy

Anyone else have suggestions on how to repack this cocksucker so it'll work properly?

When you repacked did you stuff as much as possible in there. I mean to the point where it's very difficult to get back in? Sometimes it's just not the material, ie. how tight of a packing?

Exhaust leak? Backfireing? booth can eat packing.
I use the moose and its been about six months and had the core out a couple weeks ago for some more baffle work and 90% of the packing was still their.
Just the inlet were I have a leak was a little burnt up.
Did you try Noodles (can't think of the name but) some German manufacture makes hollow fibre noodles that are supposed to last longer and dampen better.

Packed her tight, and used them "noodle" things, which I think is what I'm calling yarn.

Good pipe otherwise, but unless I can solve this problem then it's history.

Drifty...

Have you tried the Silent Sport packing... or was that the Moose stuff in the sleeve? Stupid question but gotta ask, you have been getting the 4-stroke stuff right?
