Looking at an 05 525exc

Recommended Posts

Greetings to the orange clan. I'm looking at swapping saddles from an 8 year old 501 berg to an 05 KTM 525EXC, otherwise known as THE bike buy. I've got trails, swamp, open road, and some sandpits. Mostly riding on logging trails. Any reason not to get this bike or perhaps a different model? After the Berg I don't know if I could take a decrease in power. Also thinking of a wr450. Any input would be appreciated, thanks. :cry:

Just had my '05 525 a week, after a range of yellow/blue/red 4 strokers, it's just the best, don't be put off on the crap about being a beast, just treat with respect, needs jeting for a mild spot in the mid range but ready to race out of box....I thank each day that i went 525 over 450 exc!

I bought mine a couple weeks ago, and just had Travis do the suspension job, so I'm gonna be riding it this weekend. I rode it in front of my house...lets just say it gets to 55 mph very quickly. I'm power hungry, so thats why I chose the 525 :cry:
