Does your sanctioning body use transponders or visual scoring? If it isn't done electronically, that's reason enough not to buy a KTM. They've gone from numberplates so tiny you have to run pee wee numbers, to hiding the number behind your leg. My wife does a fair bit of lap scoring at the races. Trust me, in a close call, the guy with the better, more visible numbers comes out ahead most of the time.

All you dorks with chrome numbers or goobers with 3 digit pee wee numbers on full sized bikes should take that to hear, too. Numbers are for getting scored. Period. Make them as big, bold, and easy to read as possible.

We do use transponders. And the numbers don’t really matter. I was looking at how the motor holds up. I cannot afford to keep rebuilding my engine every 6 months. It is getting bad. I can do the suspension but to drop $800 every 6 months sucks. I would rather spend the money on entry fees or going to out of state races. :thumbsup:

Check the prices on a few basic OEM parts for the KTM, if the prices are anything like they were for my son's 65SX, that should cure you of wanting an orange bike real quick.

I got to ride a KTM yesterday and all I can say is WOW. Those things suck. there is no power. I felt like I got on an 80. I killed the clutch trying to keep a decent pace. I will gladly spend the money on motor rebuilds now. :thumbsup:
