Pre 98' model KTM 2strokes ,anygood?


Recommended Posts

Hi all ,ive noticed a few older KTM exc's for sale around my area from i think 97 and older when they had the big tank shrouds. A friend of mine wants to get a decent cheap bike and we were wondering if the older ones were any good or if it was the later 98 on ktm's that were the only ones worth getting. Also is it a whole new bike from 97-98 or was it mostly just cosmetics they upgraded as in plastics ,if it is just the plastics then looks like he will pick one up since we know they are a good bike.

My brother had an '96 360EXC.....great bike and got us both hooked on bikes and KTM's and 2 strokes. Had 50mm marzocchi right way up forks and Ohlins shock.....which were great. The only problem he had was the powervalve 'gunked' up and stripped the actuator gears. I'd beat 'em down on price, then go over it, piston kit, clean the power valves, service the suspension.
