What do you think?

A guy's wanting to trade my truck for this...
IMG00014 20090517 18471 Copy
It's an 07 KTM 450 SX-F, suspension redone, 40 hours on it, valves adjusted at 20 hours, 4 speed. I don't know much about dirtbikes, is there anything that I need to know about this bike in particular? How often do the valves need to be adjusted? How long will the motor last(hours)? Or anything else that I need to know.

Thanks, Kane S.

Yeah, I guess I was wondering if these bikes have any known problems that I should know about.

I guess that means you'll have to get over it or get one yourself. BTW...I know where there's one for sale.

If I was getting any money it'd be a great idea, but considering it's a trade there's no money involved, and I'm not having the best of luck selling the truck.

Or maybe he can do whatever he wants to with his money

He asked for opinions on the bike, not his finances!

Yeah, it's cool. We all know I buy too much stuff, but hey, that's what life's all about...right? It's kind of a joke to everyone that I know about if I want something I go buy it. Toys are an addiction.

make sure you watch that coolant and check the valves frequently... i havn't had a whole lot of buddies that have had great luck with those bikes... Still a badass bike to ride though.

I was looking at buying a Honda but this kind of fell into my lap. How often are you talking about, every ride, monthly...I'm not familiar with dirtbikes at all.

Thanks, Kane S.

I don't use the truck much anymore and it just sits, there's not many places around here to use it for what it's built for. I'll have another one eventually.
