You are partly right, adding fancy mirrors will not void engine warranty. Full Akro exh. sure will.

My modifications (this has come up in a new thread, and I came across this so I thought I'd dredge it up):
The Chuckwagon has be accosted thus:
carb modified and rejetted; side airbox cover v1.0 ala Creepaholic
Supercrapp IDS2 - to be replaced with a Staintune
Regina o-ring chain
KTM steel sprockets front and rear (stock sizes)
tried (where I was when I had them on - so that does not mean I tested them in all conditions eh) stockers, MT17 (great but no longer available) front, Desert rear (fine, but chunked when I ground it on solid rock ), MT21 (fine) front, TKC80 rear (ok, but seemed to wear fast - in comparison to the Desert); another set of stockers going on soon...
forks - 0.50 springs (thanks KTMnate ) to go on soon; want to add Infinity Subtanks - not sure about a revalve
shock - will get it rebuilt soon - maybe a new spring/revalve?
oh yeah, fork protection stickers - they were a biatch to mount (for me ) and they are working their way off - worth it?
Renazco Racing Seat - yes, it is worth the dough, but don't forget to add a pair of bicycle riding shorts with the crotch chamois (no seams! try them and you will understand); I went with the EVS Sports ULTIMATE "bruiser" shorts and they are fab (ask my Johnson and his two best friends ).
pegs - yeah, yeah, maybe I'll try out the new KTM adjustable
handlebars - nada, yet, except for Stenhouse Racing risers (groovy baby); I might swap the risers out for a Stenhouse Racing Scotts underbar damper mount soon
Other - GPS, perhaps, since I tire of taking the map outa my backpack and searching fruitlessly for USFS roads. I would love to have a genuine Sherpa GPS mount!
sidestand - soon
oil temp dipstick from SommerKTM - yes I want; make that a SommerKTM credit card, as long as it comes with a translation of their LC4 catalog (with tips)
second fan - cool is cool
dash-mounted A/F mixture gauge with oxygen sensor in the pipe bung (no comment)
hecktanks - well, there has to be something else but I am dry at the moment; off to the fridge... although with this many smilies I might need to check myself.
HIDs - replace both headlights
wiring - rewire the bike with larger gauge wire (hear it helps with some things)
Kronreif Trunkenpolz Mattighofen LC4 640
Its not so much staying alive; its staying human that counts.

Ktm 620 lc4 air
Hello guys... have a few questions and i hope u can answer me. i bought a ktm 620 year 1995. its supermoto modified and it has as much as i digged out a keihin sudco fcr 41 carb. First of fist .. im not shure that its the accual carb on it it says keihin and sudco, the markings are S20A0 jh, and it has a fuel inject pump.. the ones that fcrs have. My accual question is about the airbox. i noticed that it doesnt have top cover and that it has a hole drilled on the left side of the box. is that ok ? would i gain some preformance if i mount K&N air filter on it? does anyone have a catalog number of appropriate filter ?.. what do u guys suggest..
Why am i wondering.. i guess that at low RPM when hard accelerating the mixture gets too rich or the engine doenst have enough air... i dunno not really an expert on how it should work. please suggestions ..
PS: u guys rock

from the grave!
Sorry to bring this back up, but I have a couple questions.
1. My 06 does not have a snorkel. Any idea where I can get one? I see it in the picture here but don't see a part number.
2. My bike has an Akra exhaust. How do I know if it's full or a slip on? Reason I ask is because someone had said if it is "full" I don't need the snorkel. Is that true?
3. With the open airbox cover, do you really just keep the stock outer plastic on? I don't understand how that works, but I guess I'm no genius and don't need to understand it all! lol. If I modify the stock one, what's the best way? Can I just holesaw some holes in it and maybe put a screen over them? Talk to me goose.

This is the slip on silencer.
