10 Year Old New Bike

Recommended Posts

I found this on Craigslist a few months back with 55 miles on the ODO. I put on a fan and high flow water pump to keep it cool. Added handguards and a used skidplate from Fleabay. Jetting was unbelievbly bad on this bike and I had to go to the OCEMN needle clip 4 and 180 main 48 pilot to get it to run right. Looking at an updated shock or maybe an upgrade to the old one, since it is kind of choppy. Anything I should look out for with this older model? Thanks.

I think by 04 ktm had their shit together. No major faults as far as I can remember. Nice find! Now go forth and ruin some trails on that KTM. :ride:

There great bikes.

Look for 06-07 shock....Not 07 SX.

There are good fixes for the fork. But a 09 or newer open chamber will be much better and a 09 or newer closed chamber fork will be way way. Better.

Seems almost a shame to ride it. Cant you stick it in the corner for 20 years and go buy another bike????

Yeah. I had the same feeling but I'm gonna ride it. I can't afford a new bike, so I bought this one.
