I bought a used '08 250 sxf six months ago after riding Jap bikes for over thirty years. Jetting it was a challenge but it is working good now. It mostly needed a smaller (if I remember correctly) leak jet to allow more fuel via the accell' pump. So far, it has been a very solid machine. My only complaint is the center of gravity is a little high compared to the Zook & Kawa bikes I've been riding. It more than makes up for it in steering prowess though. I was a little phobic about going with a KTM because I always thought they were a little weird and had questionable reliability, but no more. Very nice bikes!
