  1. I'm thinking about getting an 04' 450sx as well, my main riding style if fast trail work. I've ridden 2-strokes all my life as they love to rev and are cheep to fix if they go pop. A mate of mine had an '03 CRF450 and did the same riding as me and his gear box went bang in a big way . . . so I supose I would like to know what the reliability of the bottom end and g/box on the SX ktm's are like for trail work. Thanks.
  2. Thanks for the info, I'm keen to give the EXC a crack so I can out gun the MX's on the transport sections, but I hope it's not to much of a pig on the tight stuff. I'll keep you up to speed with how the euro enduro pulls up in the West Australian bush.
  3. Thanks for the info guys, I think I'll give the EXC a crack . . . I can always go back to my 2st's if it's to hush of a pig on the tight stuff. I'll keep you up to speed with how the euro enduro holds up in the West Australian bush.
  4. I'm keen for a KTM 450 EXC . . . bring on some Phat trails
  5. Hi all. I'm new to this 4-stroke game, I've been an oil burner all my life (KDX200 & 2x KX250's) but trail riding up against a squadron of 4-bangers (3xYZ450f's, a RM-Z450, and a CRF450) my KX250 is getting a displacement complex, not to mention I'm ringing it's neck. My friends and I all ride geared MX's on the trails as they are slick, quick and nimble. I've got the opportunity to throw a leg over an '04 KTM 450 EXC which would be great to get the wide ratio box and trail set up but I have never ridden one before and same goes for my mates and I don't want to hop on a trail tracktor. Could someone please shed some light on what I should expect with regard to the power curve, gear ratios, and reliability of the 450 EXC. . . . and any other little tricks I should know about it. Thanks Crew.
