No problems here. I've raced mine in TT and XC stuff and it's held up great.

I have the 505sx and i will be racing it this season. IMO it is awesome, have done just over 10 hours and have had no problems what so ever. Pulls hard in every gear, love the suspension. I will only be putting on precision steering damper, flexx bars, hmf slip on exhasut and rath nerf bars. I think that you should take the offer from KTM, it is just an awesome quad.

450sx here, thing rips, stock tires wear out like nothing but do they ever hook up. pain in the ass to start sometimes though,. especially when its cold or the engine's really hot, use the hotstart if you stall any time after youve warmed it up. stock shocks are ovedrdampened, needs a pipe, a slip-on is all you need te header is fine

me and my dad have been really discussing this and are almost sure that we want to do this and go through with it but there are still a few things that are on our minds, we are both afraid that parts are going to be hard to get for this thing, not aftermarket but stock OEM stuff like oil filters, and all that good stuff. Any opinions on this problem? thanks

oil filters are easy to get. had no problem with that. the warrenty claims are the issue right now it seems. been waiting two months (and counting) for new tank due to stripped bolts. and when the brake bracket broke i waited about the same amount . the brake problem was fixed for 09, but not sure about the tank bolts.

the a-arms for the xc took a while, but other than that we got all our stuff quickly and easily, i dont know why people have these worries about parts availability.


trust me higgerson, itll be the best descision youve ever made, my xc went through 5 days of track time in a row, riding for at least 3-4 hours a day and idling for twice that time, then a race weekend that saw it run 12 motos, without an oil change, with no mechanical problems whatsoever
