I have one on my 1999 640 LC4, if anyone has any questions.

I am struggling with which color to get on the emig damper - bright aluminum, orange, black, blue or red. Give me your $0.02 on color choice, anyone?

FWIW, I am under the impression the Scotts damper will fit this mount as well, so I'll try a friend's Scott's damper on the mount as well.
Yes, potatoho, your post on ktmtalk.com is where I found out about emigracing.com. I called Gary just a few minutes ago and ordered everything, should be here in a few days. I'll post pics upon installation. And yes, I went ORANGE!

Sorry, but I cheaped out and will be using the mounts and damper with my stock triple clamp. It will still give me a woody.

Cool! Do you have oversized bars? I got some from emig as well.

I went out riding today to the sandy area that totally kicked my pre-stabilized butt. I only fell one time!! I was first gearing over a sand berm to follow another trail and I just sorta washed out. But I'm happy to say that I was able to follow all of the sand trails at my own pace. Even avoiding the mud puddles that my prior ride forced me through, as a consequence of the death grip I had to use.

The stabilizer is great. The only stuff which still requires concentration is the really beachy sand with ruts in it. If I hit it wrong I would feel the front wash just a little, but it never made me fall down or put a leg down. I was riding with 25psi in the front and rear :-) These are maxxis 6006 tires. Didn't like the stockers for sand at all.

potatoho screwed with this post 02-15-2005 at 07:37 PM Reason: adding riding story

The holes aren't compatible between the emig stabilizer and the scotts. There's some kind of patent issue I believe. I think you can get the emig setup for a scotts, not sure.

I just took some more pictures of my emig setup on the LC4.

Emig stabilizer plus OEM triple clamp kit, assembled on my table:


All buttoned up with my cheapo KTM rubber pad:

640 Adventures come with Magura fatbars as standard, so I saved a few bucks there. Ahh, sand riding. I used to live in Orlando and rode in the Ocala forest all the time. I think the Adv would be OK if you were careful, but I remember seeing lots of BMW GS's stuck in the sandy pipeline trails at the Alligator dual sport years ago...

No, It should arrive on Monday, just as I go out of town for several days!!! I did not receive anything via e-mail from you. How about trying to send it again?
Thanks

Thanks for sharing, P-hoe. Good to see you over here. Seems to be more LC4 stuff happening on this side these days. Your roller bearing pics were a huge help.

Cheers, its Friday!

I forgot I used my hotmail address and not my regular e-mail when I joined. Oops. I got both the PM and the e-mail.
Thanks.
