Opinions and thoughts on a 1995 KTM 620 Dualsport

I found a 1995 KTM 620 dual sport that I am getting tonight. What are the thoughts and opinions of the bike? Any major problems need to watch for or look for in getting this beast?

88 views and no thoughts on what to look for or if it is a model that I should run from?

one of these?

Is this what you're getting?



I've owned one before, a while ago, didn't have it for long though, fixed it up as a mini project and sold it. It was a brutal beast of a thing

was one of those for sale around here, i checked into it. a '96... the guy that runs the local dual sport club owned it, was supposed to be really nice.... i think '95 was the very first year, and it pretty much was a commercial version of the Dakar bike.... and it didn't have a counterbalancer shaft that they added later, maybe '98..... you can look at the front of the engine cases, and if there's not 2 big bumps, there's no counterbalancer, which is supposed to mean that it vibrates a bit..... but everything i read was that the bike was a total beast, pretty light, and crazy powerful.... and that motor is supposed to be pretty strong, so.... i dunno about getting parts anymore, though.... $$$$ sounds good....

Engine Purrs like a kitten! Shifted good, Need to add the decompression cable, and re-do the clutch cable, I had to adjust it to ride it.
