    2008 KTM Jr Adventure price??

    My problem is, I have found two price listings: $1798 and $3298, but I can't confirm this is for my EXACT model. He won't give me a price, just wants to get rid of it; his son crashed and won't ride anymore (actually was ridden once) as you hear every time a bike is for sale! I don't want to low-ball, but I need to know what it went for new.

    2008 KTM Jr Adventure price??

    I am looking tonight at a 2008 JR Adventure 50 and am not sure what to offer. I was told he paid $3000 new, but I can't confirm that online.... does anyone know the original MSRP of this bike?? I found $3298, but that looks like an SX Jr. 50. Thanks in advance.

    older CR125 engine question

    I have the chance to buy a 1986 CR125 with the lower end grenaded. I have found an 1984 lower end on Ebay. Anyone think this will work? The cylinder base gasket is the same part #, but the rest is different. Anyone have some experience with this one? Thanks....Josh.

    What is the demand for an '03 XR400?

    I got mine last night!! Here's how it went. I was selling my Jeep CJ7 to a guy and after an hour of debate, he bought it for $2300 I told him the money was going to my wife to start her business. He said, "too bad, I have a 2003 XR400 I would trade you even for it. An hour later it was in my garage (true story!!) Sorry honey.... ps, rode it today, LOVE IT!!!

    Dust Past Air Filter

    Never had that problem, and i put a liberal amount on the rim and around the hole in the filter for the bolt.

    Dust Past Air Filter

    I have always used a waterproof grease on the rim of the filter (lately BELRAY) and i have never seen dust in my boot. I go two rides between cleanings but I trail ride mostly now, so not alot of dust. Just alot of rocks.... We squeeze the air filter oil out, then wrap the filter in a paper towel and squeeze again. Never once had a problem in 20+ years of riding.
