2000 Wr400 vs 2001 KTM 520 EXC

5 posts in this topic

Im have to make a difficult decision:

Having my Wr for over 6 months now. YZ timing, Filter lid removed, Spot on Jetting, WB E series Exhaust with tapered header. Love this machine so much!

Yesterday put US$ 2,500 deposit on one of only 4 520's coming to town on December.

I was told wonderful things about this bike.

I am not sure about migrating to Orange Country.

Are KTMs as reliable as Yamahas?

Do they feel as light as they say?

How about parts availability in the US?

I need Help to make up my mind.

Dont want to feel guilty selling my trusty and RELIABLE WR.

H E L P!!!!

That's orange country, not orange county, knuckle-head! :) Miguel, the 520 is an awesome bike, you

won't be disappointed. If you are, you can always sell it easily for what you paid for it. I own a 2000 400sx and it is totally reliable, just keep the oil changed often and you'll be fine. Where are you located?

I might want to put a deposit down on one of the other 520's, an sx model if possible, if your dealership has one available and it's relatively close.

LOL!!! That is funny! I must be a damn knuckle head! Who would want to move to Orange Country anyways? Is that near Poland?
