Make sure you do a post on the KTM side to figure out if the bike you are buying is one of the ones that has an overheating issues.

I am a B classer, so far, and about 5 laps into our one race, I came up QUICK on a much slower rider. I went to pass him on his right, on a short straight that leads to a small (3-4 foot high) single kicker-jump. Well, he never even looked over his shoulder, and came the WHOLE WAY from the LEFT side of the track, to the RIGHT side of the track, so as to be able to go around the jump (it clears for like two feet on the right side.) I yelled as loud as I could, and locked the rear wheel up at 35-40. I couldn't avoid him, and we smacked. Luckily, I was able to bounce off him (I'm still not sure how I stayed up!). I mean, this guy wasn't even in my class, so you are NEVER safe. Run the lowest class you can, (without being an obvious sandbagger) and if it's too easy, move up! Builds confidence for that race you do really well!
