Buying my first KTM- Need advice

Hey guys. I know nothing about KTM except that they are a lot of fun to ride I am told.
I am about to buy a used 2011 KTM 530exc.
Any advice as to what I should be looking for . It has low miles is about all I know about it.
Thanks in advance.

Better make sure your significant other doesn't mind you being out riding!

Check threads in the thumper forum, nice choice for 1st bike.

Find out how many hours its done and servicing - frequency of oil/filter changes, valve checks and who did them. If the motors been look after it should be a cool bike - friend of mine has one set up for adv riding and it is a weapon.
