I have a chance to pick one up for a litle under $4K. Good deal? Any major issues with these bikes. Bike is stock.

sounds like a great price to me. i sold an 05 525SMR last year for more than that. . .wish i still had it. the KTM SMR's are pretty rugged if you maintain them IMO. DO IT!!!!

Bike is not local, and was not raced. Per owner, has approx 2 hours of around the block riding on it. Only thing done to it was jet kit. From the pictures I've seen, it looks like a bike straight from showroom floor.

Reggie Barnsdale. He's no stranger on the WERA East side of racing. His engine quite the aftermarket king.

I have a better one for sale that was owned by Dillion Vanway that I am selling for him. Ask Wes how well the Vanways keep up with their bikes. This bike is perfect for $3,900 or best offer. The motor was just fully rebuilt with ZERO hours on the engine and the entire bike only has 37 hours on it. It also has a full Ti pro circuit pipe and new high compression piston on it

From the sound of that bike i would dought it was a 525 or more in cc. The 450's accually are faster because they rev better. And Vanways take very good care of their bikes. I can vouch foor them and Mike..
