super enduro

Hi all ! A freind of mine has a 2008 950 superenduro I am interested in . It only has 550 miles on it and is in like new condition . He has only run ethynol gas in it and some stabilizer . Is there anything special I should look for ? Is there anything weird about this bike ? The book shows $7800 in excellent condition , does this sound right? thx in advance everyone !

Sounds like a great deal. But if you have an address, I might just need to swing by and "check it out".



Good luck, they are great bikes.

There's some known issues on the 950

http://www.ktm950.info/how/ktm_950_issues.html

So there's some preventative steps to take early on to save yourself some headaches later. And the fork oil should do for a change out as it does age out.

Yeh, keep it quite...If you're not buying then someone here will pull his arm out of the socket.

Fork oil will be fine, only gets dirty when used and has a shelf life of 65000000 years.

Can't go by "book" on these bikes. He could do at least a grand better on this site with only 550 miles. Worst case scenario you might have to do a quick carb clean - maybe just the pilot jets but maybe not if stabilizer was used. I already have one but I'd buy it just to have my next bike in reserve. So go make a deal!

I've read posts from people on advrider who are really looking for the Super Enduro, and can't find one. It is the holy grail of dual sporting.

You really should fill out your profile.............







That way people would know if they have a chance to hunt around locally and poach it out from under you.............

How can it be fun if there's not at least an outside chance of dying?

I would happily trade my 990 Adv for one.

I can remember looking at a new one at a KTM dealer a few years ago before I became a KTM owner and thought that it looked like a very fun bike, but where would you ride it? Now that I'm closer to good places to ride it and understand how such a bike works on paved roads, I'm thinking it would just plain be a fun bike. I may have to get more serious about searching for one.

Hi all ! Good to hear it's such a great bike . Luckily the known issues don't affect the 2008 model too much . It also has a full titanium exhaust and saddlebags . The bike is not advertised anywhere and hopefully he will soon agree to sell it to me . He is going to call the dealer and ask what it is truely worth . I bought a 450exc from him a few years ago and the way I got him to sell it to me was to show up at his house with my trailer and cash. I told him yesterday " don't make me show up with my trailer" we both got a good laugh . Thanks again for the great info everybody . ( If I posted my location nobody here would try to pull the rug out , would you? )

Not really.

I don't know about the 2008 model not having known issues. My 08 had the POS point equipped fuel pump that was about to die @ 4k miles. Me thinks they were all made at the same time and sat in inventory until sold - the later years just rebadged. Luckily the known issues are really not a big deal to fix.
