'05 250SXF same as '06?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

A friend of mine has found a 2005 KTM 250 SXF for $6,200 out the door new. My question is, is there any appreciable difference between that and the 2006?

Thank you,

Robert

$6200 is not that great of a deal for a left over bike, i got my 06 for $6400 out the door. just an FYI

like what was said before, if the bike has black rims and forks then its the same.

It's a great deal beacause no one has the bike. In CA the bike would go over 7K. The 05's are a pre 06's.

it depends on if its the early '05 or the one that came out later that looks like the '06 (except for the airbox decals)

yeah, check out KTMTalk -- some early ones (22?) had some issues but then all ok after that. I remember seeing discussions on the subject.

It was my understanding that the first 22 bikes had a problem with the cam chain tensioner.

Also the 05 250SXF I beleive was built just before the 06, had the 05 features and was only called an 05 to pacify AMA as they had to have x number of 05 production bikes avail tot he public by some date to have raced their prototypes in the Supercross series. Thus I think the product is the same.

When you guys compare out the door prices you need to compare your states sales tax rates!

Yep, we checked with the dealer and he states that it has the black rims, orange fork guards, orange shock spring, etc. Just like you said, it's a late release 2005. :banghead:

IMO, a $6,200 '05 now is a good deal. As mentioned, if he wanted to get the '06, he would have to wait. I think that he mentioned January or February. There are some coming to this area but, with tax, etc, you're talking $7,200 or so out the door. :banghead:

This bike is out of state (a couple actually :lol: ), so no taxes.

Thank you all very much for all of your help! :busted:

      Hello everyone, I am new to the page and to the world of ktm. I recently purchased a used 2008 ktm xcfw with a 300 big bore kit, not sure who made or installed the kit. I am looking to see if there is any way to buy a new carb that is set up for this bike with the 300 BB. Any help would be great. The fuel inlet is leaking and there are a ton of stripped screws so I’m thinking getting a new carb might be the best way to go but i don’t really have the skill or knowledge to tune and jet a stock one myself. Thank you!

      i am currently checking valve clearance on 2013 sxf 250 with 70 hrs. bike was bought new and never been apart(as far as i know). when setting TDC the notch on the crank when it is aligned to the whole, has the cam gear marks intake totally up and exhaust totally down. are these the wrong marks to look at or am i missing something. bike does run just a little difficult to start.

      Hey all. I’m a newbie here so let me know if  I’m in the wrong place. 
      I’ll get straight down to it. I’m in the market for a new bike and have been thinking about what’s going to be best for me for a long time. Until recently I finally came to the conclusion that a new YZ250FX is my best option. My last bike was 2015 Yz250f which I loved.
      Now just yesterday I saw a local dealer advertise left over 17’ FX350’s for almost the same price as the YZ. What appeals to me about the Husky is that extra grunt. What doesn’t appeal to me is the suspension and handling and the reliability of the machine. Now I’ve never owned a KTM or Husky so I am basing those two factors on word of mouth only. Like I said, I loved my Yz250f and felt very at home on it, it has probably been the best bike I’ve owned to date. Yamaha reliability is also second to none which adds to my peace of mind on purchasing the YZ. One thing I wish it had was more power though. Obviously it’s only a 250f so you can’t expect it to go like a 450 (not really interested in 450s).
      I ride mostly trails and the occasional day at the mx track. The trails I ride are gravel based, loose, rocky, single trail, and also wide, fast, flowing, sand trails which is where I think my yz250f really shined, and where I had the most fun. I’m only a small rider at 145lbs which is why I’ve steered away from 450s. 
      I’ve read a few forums and others have said the ktm and Husky 350s are unbeatable on the trail which is why I am in this dilemma.
      So basically what I’m trying to decide on is if that extra power is worth compromising for the YZ suspension, handling and usability. Feel free to make any other suggestions, including other bikes as I was also considering the YZ250X 2T.
      Thanks guys

      I am purchasing a 2012 KTM 350XCF after wanting one for a year and finally picking one up in December. My question is what are some good things to watch for on this bike as far as initial set up and good Mods to improve bike ? My plan is to add a skid plate, hand guards and muffler with the possibillity of changing the header pipe and a Rekluse EXP would be nice as we ride mostly single track mountain trails with some rocks . Any good thoughts and suggestions would be appretiated
