I bought mine used with 240 miles on it and have put almost 2000 more since. The jetting is a bit of a pain but there is tons of info on here so there should be no problem in this area. The only thing that I have had go wrong is the fork seals finally blew. Could be my fault or the bikes. Who knows but the thing is very reliable and I'm extremely happy with it.
There are other posts about the plastic and how it seems a little thin. I'd agree as they seem to get white lines if you look at it wrong.
My buddies have bought newer KTM 450's, 520's and 525's and my bike has plenty of steam to keep up with these newer bikes. I also like the layout and feel better once I put a YZ seat and tank on the bike.
I'd say buy one, you can't go wrong.
