If you are into Slovenian bling or just wanted even more KW and were to look hard on ebay.de, you may find this which was unsold last month around 1KEuro, super rare akra system only for LC4s with no starter motor. Straighter pipes, better flow, more power!

No no, the project isnīt finished completely yet.
I already did 2 short test rides and noticed to need another carb jetting.
The first time I used a 172 main jet, but this was much to big.
Switching to a 165 acchieved an increasement in power and spontaneity, but still wasnīt perfect. Maybe Iīll bring the bike to a dealer with a dyno....
Now I switched to 163, but couldnīt ride it yet, because itīs snowing and at the second ride the clutch got broken
I had to ride back home (through the city!) without any function of the clutch

The slave cylinder was leaking.. here you can see why:

At a local dealer I got a new gasket for free, which seems to work.
But Iīll have to wait for better weather

Funny you should mention that, two days before Christmas

on my way to the bank I lost my clutch I have a hydraulic clutch and no cable to break so I was like WTF
As I'm pulling over I'm slapping the lever trying to figure what is going on and the lever adjustment plunger assembly just plops out on the ground. So I pick it up and push the bike into a parking lot and start thinking, how am I going to make it to the bank before they close then make it 20 miles back home?
I decided I could take back streets and just roll the stop signs. I start the thing up and start running and pushing, jump on and stab it into 1st, she doesn't stall so I'm thinking I'm good First stop sign and the flood gates have opened, so I kill the motor and wait, then run-push and stab. Now I look up through my fogged face shield and see a cop up the road at the next stop sign with someone pulled over. Quick, more side stepping and more traffic at every stop sign...after doing this 8 or 9 times I made it to the bank.

Now I've got 6 major intersections(45,55 &65mph traffic) to go and 20 miles! So this is what I came up with..







The local shop had a lever and after getting everything apart today I see that it is the exact same lever on my CR500's Magura hyd. clutch. Good to know for the next time.

Since my SMC is a commuter I have a Pelican case on the rack, plenty of tools and of course zip ties. This is the biggest malfunction I've had that almost prevented me from getting home so I guess it wasn't all that bad. Even though I've had some valve train issues the bike has always gotten me home 35,600mi and counting. How long will my luck hold?

Yea the image quality is very poor. What's up with everything being washed out in white. Camera lens fog or something

The new o ring will work for a while but just order the whole slave before spring. also a good time to rebuild the master as well.... and get a snow kit for that deeper powder..

Great snow shots. Is that gadget KOSO? What's the story on it - just a lambda A/F readout?

Edit: http://www.kedo.com/products/40501.html

Is this the best readout on the market?

Hereīs a little update

I installed the lambda sensor, but the adjustment of the carb still has to wait, because the weather is very bad


Furthermore Iīve installed a cold start extension from the 2001 660 Rally, works great !



And today Iīve got a SR-Racing exhaust, which sounds just awesome





The new gasket of the clutch cylinder is working good and not leaking any more.

Here are two pics of my last ride, made 2 or 3 miles in something like 1 1/2 hours

Had a lot of fun again yesterday




The new engine seems to have to much power for the chain
Unfortunenatly this happened in the middle of nowhere, but I called a friend who managed to pick me and the chain up. We drove home and chopped off the broken chain link, went back and installed it again with a new chain lock.


Sorry about the bad image quality again, my D-SLR is just too big :(
Hereīs also another crappy video and photo
