99' KTM LC4 640 Rocker Cover Repair & Pics

Wanted to start this thread ( as a record ) posting all the glorious photos of my new LC4....( which have been on three threads and is posted in the flea market)

Removed cover, removed old silicone sealant, reapplied sealant, waited three days, another leak...

Have the rocker cover off for the second time now I'm going to do it the correct way this time and torque the bolts down according to the " Man "




View of right side ( seat, tank, and side panel removed )



Good kind of green? Drained it a few hours ago, going to replace it with the fresh stuff, still unsure of what kind of coolant I need an how much is needed? 2 liters perhaps? I know just to fill it up full but a number would be nice.



Right side of lower engine, wires leading into the case? Green & White wires are for what?













1696 ? What does this number mean?



No reason



Moved inside the garage, ( neighbors garage )



With the secondary transporter ( my pink scooter ) 2007 Arqin Sprint ( Shit don't buy one )



The other angle



Hondabond HT ( High temperature ) $40 bucks from the local Perth Honda Dealership



Curious to know what people think of this coolant in the LC4?



Really stuck at this point, what needs to be done to remove the cover? All that is holding the cover on ( to my knowledge ) is the old sealant.



Blurry image, 11 bolts removed from the cylinder cover. As stated in the repair manual



Bolts removed :)



Just removed the cover, kicked by hand the kick starter to move the piston to break the seal.

If you want to show what steps you're taking, why not personalise the thread title to describe what the thread is about - something like "Fixing the rocker cover leak on my 640"? BTW its not an adventure you have there more like the enduro - still a very nice setup with that 18l tank. A line or two under each photo describing keys events would also help.

Nice looking bike!

But it's a 640 Enduro not Adventure...

640Adv looks like this.

So in the space of a week you have:

1. Bought the bike.
2. Found it has more miles on it than you thought.
3. Posted nearly the same question in 3 forums
4. Put the bike up for sale in the Aus Flea market.

Is this some sort of record?

Basically, excited about the new purchase, want to repair it, then sell or trade. Don't like having to maintain a bike this much.

thread title should REALLY be changed... you have a LC4 Enduro.. search engines will steer people here that are looking for pictures of A KTM LC4 640 ADVENTURE.

btw... with some work initally your bike would need very little maintainance... and take you pretty much anywhere in the world..

I can't change the title, I've tired...

This is what I'm aiming for, I believe I'll keep the bike and take it around Australia possibly ship it back to North America If it's financially possible ( At the end of the 2012 )

Thanks for the positive comment Laramie, Where did you get the idea that I'll not be returning anything to the knowledge pool ?

Thanks for the tips, I agree that the thread title needs to be changed, Could you change it for me? " LC4 640 Enduro - Rocker Cover Leak "

Fujian, when you put it back together be a lot more sparing with the sealant than the po.

Nice tip, I'll keep that in mind when I apply the sealant to the cover side, I think it will be easier on that mating surface.
