WR is sold and gone. Enjoy Bill.
So, full disclosure; bought this bike a few months back, and now some stuff has come up from job that may keep my fanny out of the seat of a bike for a while. In addition, just moved to a new place sans garage, so having to store bikes has become a royal pain in the rear. I've gotta simplify my motorcycle load, so things gotta go.
It's a 2002 KTM EXC400. Stupid fun bike. FL street title. Here's the skinny;
Rode it 2-3 times after I bought it locally. Runs like a top. PO has put a little too much oil in it and never looked up the words "clean" or "wash." As a result, cosmetically, the bike is a little rough around the edges. The black side panels are scratched up, but not cracked. Fenders and shrouds are in good shape, and seat is perfect. Has an Acerbis brake light hooked up. Battery is probably less than a year old, I would guesstimate.
The PO removed the stock forks; don't know why, but he did. In replacement, it has a set of WP Extreme 50mm conventional forks. Everything I read says they are the bees knees and superior to the USD forks that came with it. Probably true, but style of riding could dictate otherwise. I still have the stock set of triple clamps and hub from the original front end; forks didn't come with it. Left side fork seal is a little leaky, so will need that.
Everything worked; electric starter, kicker, lights, all electrics as they should, and bike ran like a top. No overheating issues. Gear box and clutch were smooth as silk. Didn't hear anything going on in motor.
I took the bike basically completely apart, and thus, it sits as that now. I bought a new set of radiators, fasteners for all plastics pieces, new oil filters; I also ordered a new lower chain guide, headlight shell, and some other misc. parts that I'm still waiting on (that's another story...).
It needs just a super good cleaning. Chain grease and mud are caked on some of the engine cases, but just from some minor cleaning, got that off. The paint on the clutch cover was peeling, so I sprayed that down with some paint striper and removed the paint. It's just now bare magnesium, and looks cool. Some of the paint striper dropped down to the frame, and as a result, took some of that paint off too (that's why you shouldn't be lazy like me and try to do it without removing the cover...doh).
Only other thing I saw was that the exhaust valve cover gasket may need replacing. I checked the valves, did the 1/6 turn method, and all seemed well inside. That has since been put back together.
As of now, the subframe and all plastics have been removed. I'm trying to get some time to clean and put it back together, but that has been impossible to come by lately, and may not get any better anytime soon.
The pipes are dent free, but do have some rust on them. Not sure what you can do to alleviate that without ruining the finish.
Included also was a WER steering dampner. Can't testify to it's usefulness, but you can get them rebuilt for less than $100; cost someone $500+ at some point. Looks good on the eye test, and seems like it's had little use.
Like I said, the bike is disassembled right now, but I have all parts lined up.
I want to keep it, but reality set in a few nights ago, and not sure I'll be able to touch a bike until October.
I would like to get $2000 for everything. That's what I have in it. Clear, open Florida title. I only have one picture right now (did I mention I have no time?)
What it is; good, cheap, fast dual sport with bullet proof RFS motor (the 02 motors were not prone to the dreaded "cam stop" failure that the 2000s and 2001s were). What it's not; a brand new dirt bike with shiny bits.
2004 KTM 250EXC $2500
I have a very clean '04 250 EXC that has a lot of add-ons, runs strong, starts first/second kick each time. Top-end rebuilt last 10-12 hours, total hours not sure. Bike has never been raced, only ridden a few times at Milton MX and some trails locally here in Pensacola. Here's a list of everything that it has:
- Renthal Fat Bars
- Motion Pro 1.5" extended throttle cable
- KTM Handguards
- KTM Billet Orange Master Cylinder and Clutch Cover
- Always used Engine Ice in Radiator
- Enduro Engineering Clutch and Brake Levers
- Enduro Engineering Stator Cover
- Enduro Engineering Head Pipe
- Enduro Engineering 3 Silencer
- Enduro Engineering Case Saver
- Enduro Engineering Clutch Cover
- Renthal Orange 50T Sprocket
- PDS 4 Progressive Rear Spring
- Front Forks recently rebuilt by R&R Racing, new springs (.44), fresh fluids and valving. Sprung for 200lb person with gear
- All new gaskets, fluids, lube, everything re-bleed
- New brake pads
- Enduro Engineering Graphics Kit
- New bearings front/rear
- Front tire almost brand new, rear tire 80% life left
I'm sure there's more, but can't think of the rest. Now the negatives, I do not have the title for the bike but can assure that the bike is legitimate. If need be, I can give you the VIN# and you can verify it. I bought the bike from a good friend that lost the title a few years back. The black rims have been oxidized, so they are not a shiny gloss black but more of a slightly faded black in some areas. The pic is slightly older, and has been updated with many of the above parts. I can text newer, updated pics. Questions, please call 586-935-8804, located in Pace, FL.
Used 4-5 times. Worked great on my truck. Easy to load by yourself. Located in the Mountain Vistas of Clermont off hwy 27 near Lake Louisa. $125
Both bikes will be for sale also as soon as I get my busy person to find time to clean the carbs.

I also have Helmets Chest protectors, gloves, goggles fairly good set of boots and lots of other old but still serviceable gear if anyone is interested.
Ft Walton Beach Area
No dog in the hunt, but I know this seller and since he's the Official Certifier of Certified-Old-Timers, I can vouch for him; he's a stand-up fella, buy with confidence!
If my KLR used those tire sizes I'd buy those Stinkos from him myself...
Bump for lowered price of $4200.
$3200. or trade. My CRF450R is an '06 but I bought it new off the showroom floor in '09. The '06 was the first year that Honda improved the valve seat material that plagued earlier models with the highly talked about valve problems. I have never had to adjust the valves. It starts on the first or second kick hot or cold everytime. I live in Pinellas the most conjested county per sq mile in Florida. There is nowhere to ride a dirt bike and so I really didn't use it all that much. The closest place to ride was Croom (an hour drive away) I went up there maybe once per month to ride on the trails. The bike has never been close to the rev limiter. I am really anal when it comes to maintenence. I guarantee not one speck of dirt got past the airfilter. I would only use OEM filters (much better quality than Uni,TwinAir,etc.) and liberally apply Bel-ray filter oil. Also, I never rode behind somone else's roost. I was always by myself so the bike always breathed clean air. The engine and tranny oil would get changed every 6 hours with Honda HS4 in the engine side and GN4 in the tranny. Everything was left stock. It is plenty fast enough and I never ran out of power. This bike is faster than my uncorked XR650R was and over 50lbs lighter. I did add bar risers and Radiator guards. I put race tech springs front and rear for a 200lbs rider(I still have the originals) It has a brand new Michelin MS3 rear tire and the front is still good. I added numbers from decal works right after I bought it. I dont think a dirt bike looks right without numbers. I never raced it. I'm a 40 year old 6'5" man and have no business on a motocross track. I just changed the fork oil and re-greased all the linkages with moly and head bearings they all looked great. The only negatives are the plastics have some scratches and the wheels are scatched up. I planned on keeping the bike until my number was called and I took care of it as such. I'm the type of guy who buys something and hangs on to it. I would be keeping it, however , my truck was just totalled on 3/21 . You will not be disappointed by my bike. I gaurantee it runs as good as the day I bought it. It is an amazing machine. I will be missing it and kicking myself but it is the right thing to do at this time. WIlling to trade for street-legal bike or small pick up truck.
Where are the tires located?
My guess is the Ft. Walton Beach Area
Thanks for the bump there Inept...
Yea I live in Ft Walton Beach - Panhandle Fl.

Thanks. Yeah it sits in my living room so I look at it a lot. I will miss it but I need to let it go.
Everyone that sees it, says it is a great looking bike. Unfortunately, it seems no one wants to buy it. Am I asking too much?
Not sure... I'm not really into the sport bike thing, even tho I'd love to get a stunt bike.
Your bike looks super clean, I'd assume your be able to get towards the top end of what they go for, I have no idea what that is tho.
