What would you do?

2005 525 exc. 3500+ miles. Oil changes, air and oil filters, brakes and clutch plates.
That's it for maintenance.

Runs great needs wave rotor and radiator shrouds.

Should I just.

Ride it.
Sell it.
Renew it.
Other. ( this does not include giving it to one of YF)

At 30 mph, 3,500 hours is over 100,000 miles. That's something like double the record for an EXC. You might want to look into documenting both the hours and the virginity of the engine so the KTM haters don't call you a liar. You could probably help some company sell oil too, if you knew what it has used all its life.

Edit. Oh, 3,500 MILES! Well, nothing to see here, move along.

i'm gonna assume you meant 3,500 *miles*?

if so, just keep riding it. 3,500 miles is nothing...

Sell it, buy some china stocks and apply the principal towards a new bike that keeps the economy going, apply the interest to gear and consumables, put the remainder in a high-yield long-term and send the kids to college with the rest...

I'm sure there's some other tax breaks in there as well...



rinse, repeat as necessary.

That bike is all done man...your best bet is to crate and ship it "as is" for recycling to: the port of Napier NZ . Just write on the crate "Night Falcon To Collect, all Freight and Tax Paid by Consignor"

3500 miles is only 2 sets of rear tires and maybe time for a front. Check the valves before the riding season and haul ass. The only thing I see that you need are the radiator shrouds. Awesome picture very jealous
