confused

When was the last year the 625 SXC was sold in Australia
Looked at one today 2007
I thought the SXC did not have oil in front frame tube like older 640
Has a filler and and oil lines at top of tube Also has the "spin on"oil filter
Confused

sxc

the last of the SXC's were plated 2007, from what i could tell when i was buying my bike, all the same bikes in a model range were plated at the same time, ie 04/07 for the SXC (Ibought my SXC new in July 08), and EXC were later in the year, around august, but then were called the next year model, ie made in 07 and called an 08.

I am not 100% sure about the oil filter, I know my 07 has the two oil filters, and has an oil capacity of 2.1 litres, which includes, 1.4 in the gearbox and then 700ml in the frame.

An added bonus of getting the 07 model, apart from the unreal deals they were doing do to the release of the 690's, was the cush drive, the 06 and previous did not have it, but they offered a factory deal if you wanted to upgrade.

they are certainly a very cost effective bike when you weigh up the cost of a 690 onroad, I think for the next few years the SXC will hold its own as far as resale goes as the demand seems to be fairly high.

I think you may want to check your sources of info. I am not sure but didnt all the aussie 625s come with oil in frame? I think it was the US ones which didnt (they also got that 625 before we did).

Does anyone know if the 05-07 are identical? I thought they were?

I have an 06, no free cush hub for me :(
Also has oil in frame and spin on filter, IIRC all Ozzie ones did.

Prices for these bikes seem to be holding their own very well.

Anyway after I broke mine, I just got my new one all sorted

Old wheel -
standard spokes,
standard hub,
standard nipples
standard excel rim (2.15inch)
standard 1/3rd gone 60/40 road/trail tire (Michelin T63),
standard tube with rim lock)
weighs in at 13.5Kg
Thats with Aluminum sprocket and brake disc still attached.

New wheel -
thicker 5mm stainless spokes,
stainless nipples
cush hub,
double stamped signature series excel rim (2.5inch)
5ply and 4 play brand new Michelin Desert,
ultra heavy duty tube with rim lock)
weighs in at 15Kg.

Not a great deal of difference, 2 KG doesn't seem like much given the difference.

About $1050 including shipping etc That was with a 92c exchange rate (though not sure what the magic people at my bank calculated it at.)

From Woody's Wheel Works in Denver - there is a vendor thread for him - very helpful, even got a free t-shirt.

Then locally,
rim lock ~$30
UHD Tube ~$30
Desert was $230 or something like that

So all up, its around about $1500 give or take - 2/3 weeks from order to my door.

Once the CC recovers I am considering similar for front.. but I don't NEED it, unlike the fact I needed a rear.... so home renovations might win that war..
Locally no one could be arsed even providing a quote or returning phone calls.

625 SXC horsepower

Does anyone know what the claimed horsepower output of the 625 is?
The 640 is around 53 horsepower.

43KW IIRC - I can probably look that up if needed.

Looked it up. 40KW+ which is around the 53-55HP range, the 625 SMC is 24KW, I would assume the 640 was between 24KW and the 40+KW, given non-high flow head, diff carbie and less performance orientated exhaust.

when i ran my 625 on the dyno i got 53 hp. But it was running very rich

Popped the side panel off the airbox and removed the air filter and an it pulled 57hp

Went down a size on the main jet and it cleaned up the air fuel a bit but was still on the rich side and only gained 1 hp

Sold it before i spent any more time on it.

Ran my stock dr650 on the same dyno today and it only pulled 37hp
