It just came out of the blue. I was looking at an F800R, but at $10,000 less.. I just couldn't walk past the orange knife, I got sand in my veins. After 6 months away.. it's good to be back in the game.

Solved the road/cush issue with my (glad I didn't sell 'em) 640Adv motards that bolted straight on, bar a 320mm brake caliper adapter. Just have to toss the other wheels on for Adv trips (I don't do one day bush bashing).
Got it for the trade in price (Thanks Linc). He won't shed any tears though. With a 27L safari tank, under bar dampener / risers, and the other usual distance gear on the shopping list...

What a hoot this thing is, so much lighter than the Adv. Rode in circles around Newc 2 hours in the rain yesterday with my new toy.. sore cheeks from grinning.. I could copy this post directly to the "What makes KTM so Great" thread!

Thanks for tollerating the self indulgence.
Looks good! I saw that bike as well in the shop a couple of weeks ago. It is in very good condition.

Thumb 625 SXC - Legendary LC4.

I loved my 625SXC, great do all bike with ample power & huge amounts of torque, I had the 18L tank & comfort seat for the bigger Adv style rides & used the smaller original tank for most other types of trail riding.

Great bike indeed, wished I could have kept it as my 2nd bike, however I know it's gone to a good home...

I've now gone to the latest LC4 690 R which I'm very happy with...

I sold my LC4E last year and tried to make do with a DRZ400

I bought an SXC about six months ago, added a Safari Tank and a comfort seat and now I'm thinking I don't need my 950ADV anymore...

Frame guards for my SXC?

Hey Bronx,
In the original photo of your SXC, I see it has a set of black frame guards, which I assume are plastic.
Where did you get them from, or were they with the bike. I can't seem to get hold of a set.
Anyone have any clues?
Cheers,
Cords

PS I've got an '06 625SXC with 17l Safari tank & its a great allround bike that I don't get to ride enough but aren't planning of parting with for a while!

Hey Cords and Aash those guards were on the bike when I got it from Sol Erzenberg. Sol put them on so if you send him a PM I am sure he wil be able to help you.

Cheers

These 625SXC`s I know that they share an engine with the 640ADV. But do they have a subframe like the 640ADV.......ie can they carry stuff?

re subframe

just going by the look of the subframes i would say they are the same, both bikes have the same rear end, ie, rear guards, taillight etc. Some of the other models SM run a different rear end.

They are supposed to be rated to carry somewhere in the vicinity of 20kgs, but, there have been a lot of failures, mine included, and DannoJ's failed in the desert last year, that's bad timing.

if you are thinking of carrying luggage, best bet would be to have the subframe beefed up before it lets you down in the bush.
