I don't think it's a relocation kit, on my 660 Rallye it is an extra oil filter, total of three oil filters, longer oil circuit to allow more cooling time for the engine to run at high rpm all day long..
I can't tell if there is enough room between the exhaust pipe of the 700 LC4 to fit the spin-on oil filter in the frame.

Looks like they are running Michelin Desert tires to me.

High pressure system

The system is running at three times the normal crank case pressurization, the faster oil flow sheds heat quicker and keeps the oil away from its flash point, I dont think there is a filter. I would bet the exhaust alone cost 2k all titanium.

The HPN Baja conversion supposedly clocks in at 196 kilos including fuel (about 430 pounds) -- but that's with full street legal equipment, bucket headlight, etc. I would imagine that official Baja bike is sub-400.

Not marketing?

I have to agree that this is the coolest KTM I have ever seen! But what is this "engineering not marketing firm" crap?!! Racing is marketing for the sake of engineering. It's kind of a circle. Must have $ to race. Money comes from MARKETING and selling your engineering.
That said, when can I get my 700LC4. Looks like the perfect bike to put between the GS and the DRZ.
Ciao, Dino

Any ideas as to why what appears to be the fuel pipe is such a large bore and where it's going?

Tim, you read my mind! I assume they have a composite conformal tank stashed down there somewhere. It could also be that they are trying to carry a bit of fuel in the larger line, though I doubt this and don't know the Baja rules on fuel, it is not an uncommon race trick with cars. I wonder if the main tank is custom, it looks a bit like the old 20l tanks. Man would I like to take this bike apart.

Well, that's what I thought, but have you ever seen a fuel line with what would appear to be at least a 1 inch bore?

Check the fuel lines going to/from the pump on the far right of this Dakar Rallye bike - look pretty normal to me.



Mack I wondered about an additional underseat tank but from the look of those vents just below the seat it would appear to be a large airbox under there.

edit I just looked at the pics again and there would appear to be a slight change in the colour of the black plastic of the mystery underseat airbox/tank so could it be a combination of airbox under the seat and extra tank below that?

As you say Mack, it would be fun to be let loose on that bike with an adjustable wrench and a hammer!!!

you know what call me Crazy but i rather work on it that Ride it, Is not like I'm a exelent mecanic or fabricator but I have far more skills on that field that i have as a rider..with me a bike like that will be a waste,, like Giving Truffles to a Pig or something like that.

Maybe I'm on the right place, just not at the right time...


For now lets RIDE
