First orange bike, 06 525sx

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a 06 525sx. Got it for $850 it has bad crank bearings, needs cylinder work done. Head looks good and appears to have had some porting work done. The crank seal area on the clutch side center case half is beat up pretty badly. Bike had a 13:1 Standard bore JE piston (would this require race gas?) Why cant I find any 11:1 stock bore pistons? Other things bike needs are rear fender, rear wheel bearings, and the handle bar decomp lever mount is broken. Bike has tri star top triple clamp (are these aftermarket, are they any good?) Bike also has a FMF Factory 4 exhaust system that says powered by KTM with power bomb. (Is this any good or desirable exhaust?) Has pro taper contour bars. I dont know a thing about KTMs all my experience is with a 96 XR600R. Any info would be greatly apreciated, tell me what I have guys did I get screwed?
