04 smc's also had keihin carbs. and stock gearing of 16/38 compared to 17/38 on the 05 and 06's.My recollection is there are several tweaks between 04 and 06, with the most significant being the 04's used BST carbs and single exhaust. The 06 uses Keihin carbs and dual exhaust.
my 04 has the same fcr41 carb as my buddies 06.'05 & '06 is the same & yes KTM Lc4's are parts bike & the rear sprocket & counter shaft sprockets can be different.
When I p/u mine the other one which serial# was one diget B-4 mine had different gearing & it was 17/40, mine was 16/39.
The differance from '05/'06 model from '04 & earlier is the most obvious is the '04 & earlier have a single exhaust & '05/'06 has dual exhast.
but more importantly, the '05/'06 has a bigger/better flowing carb :thumbup:
the '05/'06 put out more ponies stock (after the carb restrictor is removed) than the '04 & earlier & '05/'06 rev's faster.
What is noticable also between the 2 is the '04 & earlier vibrates less than the '05/'06 which has to do with smaller counter balancers to make it rev quicker.
I like the tail better on the '05/'06 because you can clean it up better by drilling out 2 holes on the tail light to instal led turn signals & dropping that useless extended fender :thumbup:
doh - sorry guys, misinformation there on the BST carb for '04. Is there a way to edit your posts so I can clean this up?My recollection is there are several tweaks between 04 and 06, with the most significant being the 04's used BST carbs and single exhaust. The 06 uses Keihin carbs and dual exhaust.
cool man figure it out.Here are all of the differences I could find....yes this is a little preview of something in the works...shhhhhhhhh
Checked the schematics and you're right, tanks are the sames 04-06the gas tanks are different you sure?
I know...that's why I'm working on a wiki that compares parts and so we can find what fits on our bikes!!! woot woot for when it gets rolling....some shops dont even have the 04 625smc on the computer.
