I have always been a kawi guy and have thought of going to ktm. Ktm every year has the sweetest looking bikes and i know tons of extemely fast guys on them. The question i have is about their transmissions. A guy i race with rides an 08 450SX-f. He is kind of an idiot so i don't know how much i believe him, hense the reason for this thread. He bought his 08 brand new last nov-dec and claims he has allready had to have the dealership put 2 transmissions in it. Another kid we race with also has a 250 and 450SX-F. I have not asked him about his bikes but this other guy says he has had tranny problems as well. I figured i would just ask guys that really know these bikes and see what you all have seen. For all i know this guy may be screwing something up with fluid changes or something. Any input would be great. Thanks Guys.
