895h? Man that's impressive. What work have you done on that engine?
Adjust valves periodically, a few water pump seals, oil & filters, a few countershaft o-rings.... just the usual. Not raced, used as a do-all bike. Goal is 1000hrs then I'll pull the lump and rebuild the bike from the ground up. Best all-around ride I've had....
Very impressive....love my 07 but got heap of hours to go to where your one is hours wise....well done.
Over 1000 hours on mine. 32k+ miles.
I'm riding it less now that i've got a thunder pumpkin in my garage, but i'll still hooligan around town on it every now and then.
Picked up my 07 a couple years ago with 78 hours. It would be great to see 1000 hours out of it
It's a science experiment now, so no turning back... renewing the tabs on it yet again and it's due for about its...what? ....30th oil change? LOL piece of sh** bike
Nice, let's see it! There are still time capsule 07's out there, it's amazing.
The day I picked it up
I have since upgraded the headlight to a Baja Designs Squadron Pro, Added a Trail Tech stator, MXC tank, Pro Moto Billet Rack and kick stand.
Bummer, I can't see the pic ^^ for some reason... just shows the little 'do not enter' icon
Let's try it again
3 years ago I bought a 06 450 exc with 40 hours on it. In Canada 2006 and on are street legal. Still awesome.
3 years ago I bought a 06 EXC with 68 hours on it. It is also road legal here in NJ. :)
I like the kidnapping pics, the one where you've scooped a low hour timeless bike and are rubbing your hands together hard enough to start a fire
Storage locker rescue with 28hrs taken 7yrs ago of that big hour bike above... I was absolutely beside myself getting this bike home
Think I may hold the record for being very lucky 2 years ago.
2007 525 exc with 15.9 hours on it when I bought it. She does not look like that anymore.
Lots of 2007's out there in the wild, life behind bars...
I was pretty happy when I picked up my 05 last spring with 32.7 hrs and 565 miles.
I'm gonna throw my hat in this ring.
Here is my 525 as it stands now. I bought it 4 years ago from a motarder. Thing is I knew it needed TLC I just never got around to it.
The time has now come to sell it or get on with fixing it.
The list of todos includes fixing the carburetor (air leak?), check the top end (I have no idea how many hours are on it), re-paint and remove the rust from the frame and get rid of the "look at me" graphics along with a list of more minor fixes...
The problem is I have never done much more than an oil change and am wondering if this old girl is worth the money to send to someone who knows what they are doing or finally learn to rebuild an engine.
I have a 3 week holiday to decide....
I just changed the oil on my, new to me, 2007 KTM 525, and found the long oil screen is not there. The PO(s) must have removed it. What are the know issues from running without the screen?
If you install one and run it 200 miles and then change the oil and find nothing in the screen... seems you lucked out. However if you find all types of fine particles stuck in the screen, you may want to have a conversation with the previous owner.
