well i personally would make it a parts bike. I'm not a big fan of KTMs but I have heard good things about them. I have always rode honda's and think they are the way to go . either way good luck Thanks for the advice... the KTM was a thought of the past. I'm now into other thoughts. I had just replied to this topic about the bike dying again... well... for the sake of sympathy. Just kiddding... it was because I just thought I'd inform all.
