What is that thing in the middle of the engine?

If you look in the center of the LC4 motor there is a aluminum thing with hoses coming out is this a positive electric oil sump or an electric fuel pump?Who is in the Know. I will bet the jug is bored and hard chromed 80cc over stock and that they are running 20 psi of positive oil pressure for extra hear removal but where is the larger oil resivoir probaly modified the frame. I have heard of som people cutting the down tube resivoir and ovalizing it to double oil capacity.

Yes Oil

If you look at the center tube it has been modified and has two braided lines coming out for the circuit.

Looks like the third oil filter just like the one on my 660 Rallye.. without the cooling fins cover.

It's the oil microfilter.



I like the Excel wheels, airbox venting (both sides) and the exhaust. Neat bike.

Sweet, thanks for the pics

Two quick questions;

Is there a kit to do the oil filter modification relocation on a standard LC4?

What tires are they run'n?

Tanks

Check out the footpegs
They must be six inches wide -- wouldn't want to catch that in the side of the leg during a crash.
This bike makes me
I've always liked the Baja bikes more than Dakar bikes (HPN's old airhead Baja BMW bike is ) because they are a nice balance between regular dirtbike and rally bike. Long range capability, but still sleek.
