What IS this thing?

Super impressed with the amount of knowledge here, hopefully someone can help answer some questions about the Monster I just bought. First and foremost, trying to figure out what engine it has in it. The bike started life as an 2000 Monster 750. The seller told me it has a 900 “big valve” motor in it. Trying to confirm exactly what it is, so I can do some maintenance on it. I located the engine number, and while it doesn’t appear to be a 750, I can’t seem find any way to interpret it. It starts with LC4T, then is followed by 6 numbers. Anyone have any feedback?

A picture is worth a thousand words.

A friend of mine has (or had) something very similar. For all I know he sold it to you.

Along with the pic...add your location to your user profile and your bike's details to your signature line (when you figure out what you have).

Thanks for the response. Bought it from the Sacramento area.

Can’t seem to figure out how. I’m using my phone right now, maybe I need to be at a actual computer to do that?

Easiest way to tell a 750 apart from a 900 is the clutch. If it has a dry clutch it's a 900, if not it's a 750, 620, or 600. If it is a 900 look at the heads and look for a V2 stamped in them (I believe) and that will tell you if it has the larger valves. If I was home I would run out and look at mine to let you know exactly. That would be a quick dirty way to find out what the engine is, I don't know how to decode the engine numbers.

That helps, thanks! Found the V2 on mine, so that's a good start.

It certainly has a dry clutch from the first pic.

Man that's what I get for scrolling to quickly. I totally missed the thumbnail photos, quite obvious ha-ha.

That is like the old adage, measure twice, cut once
