Don't be alarmed the pig is staying in the stable. However, I'm almost sure I'm gonna grab an 05KTM 450EXC for $6400 OTD with tax included and a protection package consisting of handguards, skidplate, sharkfins, pipeguard etc. all for $6400! I looked into the other "modern" 450 4 strokes(the honda and yammie) and the RFS KTM's come out more reliable each time. Nice easy valve adjustments via a valve tappet system(like our beloved Xr's) unlike the shim bucket designs that have proven somewhat unreliable and finicky in the big 4. I need something more adapt to singletrack and tons of guys swear by these bikes here in the tight New England woods(It's a sea of orange out there at the races) I know it's a bit more maintenance intensive than the xr but I'm a nut with that stuff anyway. So what do you guys think? Will I be happy or what? Any opinions(bad experiences) etc.?
