Question about 2002 KTM LC4 625 Sc

1 Answer

Lowering bike I'm the proud new owner of a 2001 640 LC4. I have a serious offroad bike (YZ250F) for competition and tough trails. Would like to lower my 640 to make it a bit easier to handle on the road and easier trails I anticipate riding on. I am 6' with a 33 inseam and it's still hard for me to swing a leg over! I have done a fair amount of suspension work and am able to lower the forks and shorten the shock. Main question is

Would I be better off shortening the rear shock or would the Emig link or something similar be better? Would you still have full amount of travel in the rear with the link? Looks like it would just change the swingarm location to me. Any clearance issues with the rear fender on full compression? Would it balance OK with the front if travel there is reduced to 10 or so?I have an '02 LC4 that I lowered the front forks by sliding them up into the triple clamp about 3/4. I had to put a washer under the handlebar mount to get the forks up as high as I could. Since I weigh 225 plus gear I set the rear sag about 1/4 inch over what it should be. I also bought racetech springs for the front and Adventurer springs for the rear. With my weight and the lowering method I used the seat height is about 1 1/4 lower than stock at static sag. With me on it it drops about 1 1/2 to 2 lower than stock. I can reach the ground easily. I don't really need to be lower since I am 6'1 but I like to ride tight trails and prefer to be able to put my foot down even when off camber downhill. I never botton since the racetech springs do there part, and I still have full travel length.,,,

There are lowering kits available. But, your bike is for use as a competition machine. If it is too big for you then get a smaller bike.If you lower the machine it will no longer function in the way it was designed. In other words it will have less ground clearance, so it is a waste of time having this particular model. If you take some of the padding out of the seat and then recover it that should lower the seat height.

I have a 2002 yamaha yz250f. it started out not wanting to idle so i took apart the carb i got a rebuild kit and put new jets and started the bike up. it started up when i have the choke on. when i took...


Air to fuel ratio is important to starting and running your bike. A lean condition is when you have too much air for the fuel, this makes HEAT. A rich condition is too much fuel for the air, this FOULS plugs. An easy way to adjust this is to change the clip position on your main jet needle. THis is accessed from the top of the carb. It is mounted in the center of your slide. Try raising your needle position, by LOWERING the C-clip one notch.(lower the clip to raise the needle)(raise the clip to lower the needle) See if it runs better and cooler. if its better, but not perfect, try another notch lower, to raise the needle. Raise needle = richer Lower needle=leaner/hotter. Also check to be sure you have correct gap and heat range for your plug. 0.5-0.6mm gap
