2002 Ktm 200 exc

I just sold my crf 230 today and I'm looking at the 200 2 strokes, I really wanted a kdx but I found a nice looking Ktm 200 in my price range. What I'm wondering is if the Ktm will be as reliable as the kdx is. Thanks! http://lancaster.craigslist.org/mcy/4000006015.html

Yeah , the 2T Ktm's are good .

As long as it been looked after

Is there anything specific to look for when I see it?

Damage and wear and lack of maintenance .

Take someone with you who has experience

I'm about 4 hours from Lancaster and I picked up an 04 kdx220r last night. It's got a full fmf system. Vforce reeds and cage and new Renthal bars, chain an sprockets, brakes. Has about 14 hours on a full motor rebuild and comes with a Wiesco piston. It's a solid bike. Guy couldn't pay for his 09. Crf450 to be fixed so I paid $500 for it and he got out if paying for it. Ill take $1800. If you're interested.

Thing looks pretty rough, but KTM's are extremely reliable, listen for piston knock, and things like that. Check swingarm bearings, and wheel bearings. Another good way to tell is to look at the bottom of the shifter, if it's worn out, the bike has a lot of hours.

Personally i would never get a kdx but hey what do i know.

I like race bikes also so i would go for kx125 or something like that over a kdx200.

letting it eat lol. That shows that its all rider.

KDX's are one of the most respected trail bikes ever made! I think they sold as many as 11,000 a year in the US and 6,000 the last year that they where made (2006), thats a 20 y/o motor design in a 11 y/o chassis design.....that's good numbers for a bike that didn't change a whole lot from 1989 to 2006 (frame updates in 2005). Any manufacturer today would like to have those sales numbers on a single bike. The KTM 200 is the closest (and being more modern, probably better) bike that you can buy today.
