Thinking of buying a 07 ktm 450 exc

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of buying a 07 ktm 450 exc and I was wondering what the major problems people run into? The current bike I am looking at is in good condition with 200hrs for $3750 can. The hrs seem alittle high. Can anyone tell me what hours their bike was at when they needed major engine work or any other type?

Thank you,

Tony

The '07 EXC is an excellent choice especially if it is in good condition. They are very dependable and reliable. The major sore spot with the RFS engine are the intake valves which are too soft. They are generally worn out by 250-300 hrs and then replaced with long lasting stainless steel Kibblewhite valves along with fresh piston rings.
