    Hey all, I sold my 950 about 2 years ago and am trying to get back on one...
    I found one in Phoenix (happy valley/rte 17 area) and I think it's the one for me :D
    Though I'm on the east coast and can't view or get the bike till April...

    I'd be willing to pay someone for their time and gas to go take a look at it, start it up cold, review the paperwork, etc...

    Pug your ktm knowledge to work :D

    Anyone available/ interested...

    Was thinking $50 to $100 depending...

    Thanks John

    My schedule is a bit wonky for the next few days, but if we can coordinate it I'll go take a look at it.

    If you still need help, I'm available this afternoon if needed.
    Leaving for Dual Daze in the morning and back on Monday, if that works better.

    I am available just about any afternoon. No pay accepted though.:deal

    I am a bigger guy and tend to ring out the boingers. My 990 was a 07 set up as an "S" with full re-valve by Super Plush.

    Let me know.

    Thanks Eric.

    Freakin awesome!!! :D

    KTMSER took the time out of his day to go look over the bike, take it for a test ride, and give me his opinion of its condition... thumbs up he gave it! Along with a few well headed suggestions for that year model ( since I previously owned a 2005.5)....

    I called up the current owner and we sealed the deal!!! It's mine!!!

    I'll need to work out pick up and storage with KTMSER since the owner doesn't have the space to keep it, but it's good to know its in capable hands

    Can't wait to pick it up in April and take it for its maiden ride in ARIZONA!!!!!
    .... many adventures to follow thereafter :D

    All worked out well! :D
    I'm back in the saddle of a ktm 9fidy after a two year absence, thanks to the help of KTMSER!
    There are still a few things to iron out and personalize, but in general all is ok...

    I ignorantly arrived on Easter Day and was fortunate to share Easter dinner with his family....After enjoying a full belly of Easter delicacies, we headed out for an unplanned Easter jaunt in the Prescott Nat. Forest north of Peoria AZ..KTMSER is not only one of the most knowledgable and most skilled riders and mechanically minded persons I've ever had the honor of riding with, but he's good peeps...

    I'm looking forward to what adventures lie ahead!
