Ktm 450-530 2012 are they reliable?

Recommended Posts

In earlier models they had a oil seal, oil transfer problems but they had been fixed in later years.....Some bikes worked great with no issues, a few others not so fortunate. That being said I had a 08 530 with 270hrs in it before I sold it with no issues....

 

Here's some info on the issue...and a solution. If its a 2011 the problems seemed to be fixed....

Overheating issues can be caused be a multitude of things....from lean jetting, slow technical trails, low coolant in rads, plugged rads etc etc. If all things are good, the simple solution is a fan kit....I have run them on both my 530 and 500 and they have worked awesome.....
