The 450smr's have a dedicated frame. 2007 525exc's are factory plated as well as the 2008 and later 530's. I'm semi searching out a 07 525 for a dual sport, last of the Austrian RFS motors.

Not going to happen. The last year to convert a dirt bike to a street legal bike was 2001 or 2002, and there was a grace period. I would assume it was green stickered in this fine state, now it is in our system. Even with a South Dakota plate it will never get a CA plate. There is a reason why the plated ones are 2K more than green stickered examples. Also if your not a fat ass like me, 2007 and later 450exc's are street legal if the were registered that way. Still gobs of power, just higher up in the rev range. Any thing between 2002 and 2007 be wary, don't trust the seller saying it will work.

If you're going to hunt down a supermoto already built or factory it will be in the 5-6K range. A plated dirt bike is 4K for a well used one, and 2K to put sumo goodies on it.

When you said "sf" did you mean San Francisco? That is central California.

I'm down south, Inland Empire. Plenty of plated early 2000s 525 that have been plated in enduro form. Still a little pricey for me. Patience will pay off for you. Remember it needs a plate and also verify the VIN number. Good luck.:coffee:

05 crf450x?

Is it a good idea? Heard the x doesn't have the valve issues that the Rs had at the time. Have an 06 crf450r and it has done great but want to keep it dirt only.

2005 KTM 625 SMC- good or bad?

I'm looking at buying a 2005 KTM 625 SMC with 16000 miles. I've already got a 1995 KTM 620, so I'm well aware of the shaking and vibration issues.

Are there any unusual maintenance or known problems with a 2005 625smc that I should be aware of?

Thanks for any input.

Just rocker arms, various oil leaks and bits falling off. If you have a 620 you should be well versed on those. 16K is considerable milage IMO.

I bought the bike, it's just as vibey as my 95 620, and has some valve noise. I got it pretty cheap, and I'm hoping that a valve adjust will resolve the valve noise. Hopefully I'll get a good ride in this weekend to see how I like it.

Hello! I'm new around here. I'm trying to decide between a KTM 525 exc motard and a Husaberg fs650e. Both are 2004, similar condition and are the same price. I will pretty much only use it for driving to the local road race (not sm/kart) track and doing intermediate group track days and the occasional supersingle race (though I'm slow compared to those guys). It's a relatively small technical track.

I don't mind the service intervals and the bike won't be used for commuting as I have other bikes for that. This is my first supermoto bike after a lifetime on sportbikes. I'm 178cm (5'10"ish) and 70kg (155lbs.).

Which one would fit my needs better? Ktm 525 exc or Husaberg fs650e?

Thanks!

Hi I am 16 and am looking for a decent first supermoto, I am aware that I am legally obligated to ride a bike with no more than a 50cc engine so i will probably wait till i am 19 before i buy one, I will probably be looking at high mileage low maintenance. I am no stranger to bikes having raced DH for a while. Realistically I will be using the bike mostly on roads. Thanks for reading!
