08 530EXC buying guide? Looking at one later today

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am going to view a 2008 530 EXC later today and was wondering what to look out for? I know about all the usual checks, was looking more for specific things to check on this model if possible?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

08 was the first year for the new motor. There were some oil transfer (a crank seal) and oil consumption (valve stem seals) issues with the 08 EXC. Not all 08 bikes were effected but there sufficient pressure by owners/dealers put on KTM that they did cover repairs for some. Not a deal breaker but you should do a search so you know what is involved. Unfortunately difficult to check for while shopping used.
