All this talk of LC4 cush hubbed rear wheels has me scratching my head. The brake rotor and sprocket are reversed on the LC4s. Can you simply flip the wheel around to mount on a newer KTM or 70 deg Berg?

Yup again. Only the LC4 supermoto wheels have one spacer that is too long, as they use a cast swingarm that is a bit wider. Basically any 620/625/660 LC4 wheel will fit, but NOT the 690, hub is too wide.

The lack of a 50 state street legal FE would keep me from buying a new Husaberg now.. I would have to look at the KTM 500 if I was considering replacing the 570.

exactly.. why would you want to limit yourself to the tiny Berg dealer network.. just buy the corresponding KTM... Altough KTM dealers may be more open to working on the new Berg/KTM's then they were on the 70degree bikes.

Ignition Switch Wiring

So I bought the KTM switch, 78011065100 and want to wire it in. Mine is the version without the switch. I cannot find the female connector. The switch comes with a male 4 pin plug. Orange, blue, green and white/red wires.
How do I connect it?

Speaking of cush hubs, mine just arrived! Nice work by Woody's.






I found it interesting RAD seems to be using a KTM sprocket carrier

I thought it might be because I have not seen the cast KTM 640 units and the sprocket carrier has stamped in it "KTM 640". Maybe that's just an identifier that it was for a LC4 640 originally?
