opinions on 2008 144 sx trade?

Recommended Posts

Looking for opinions on a trade. I know this is a Ktm forum but I have heard a few things that concern me on the 144 so I thought I'd start here. Anyway the trade is a 08 144sx for a 08 yz250. Bikes are equal condition it seems and stock. Son wants to go back to a 2 stroke, Thoughts?

Thanks

The problem with the 144s was in the first year of production, unless the bike has been setting in the crate sense then it should be fine.

08 had issues that were resolved for the 09 model. The rings would snag the exhaust port, since it's still around and in decent shape I assume that issue has been dealt with? If it has, I'd make that trade.

Thanks. That makes sense and similar to what I was thinking.

I thought it was 07 that had issues with the rings, fixed in 08.

I thought it was 07 and 08 models, and it was fixed in 09. Could be wrong though.
