Finally rode...2002 KTM520

finally rode a KTM, 2002 Ktm 520...[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] faaast, omg, nice......anyone rode one of these? fu*king beasts, i didn't get it outta 4th gear, not enough room, i bet that thing did a good 60 in 4th alone, it was faster in 4th than my xr is in 6th, and i could keep my weight in the back and crack the throttle half open and it would stand up in 4th...that's crazy...i would lay money down that you could pull the front end off the ground in 6th on it... i didn't think it was possible for a bike to have so much power, i wanted to get it wfo, but no room, crazy power though...holy sh!t...really really awesome suspension too. Loved it...and the e button....very nice...i used to think a fourstroke could never satisfy my need for pure power and acceleration...untill today...seriously, i would much rather have that then a two stroke, it had so much low end grunt, i could let the clutch out from a stand still with that thing in third and crack on it and shoot a big [censored] roost with the front tire lifting...omg...had an orgasm...[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

The owner of the bike was drunk? And he let you ride it?[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] When I was looking for a new bike I'd checked into the 520 but the only dealer was in Victoria and there was a waiting list. Nice bike Josh.

I thought about getting a KTM as well, looked at the 400 EXC but thought it was a little pricey. I'm pretty happy with the DRZ, though I don't think it can really compare.

Re: Finally rode...2002 KTM520

Yep, I'm in agreement, it's not a beast, but it can give more than I can take. I'm about finished with it as far as mods go. I just ordered an new FMF Q and some new radiator shrouds to replace the one I broke. I'm going to put a bigger main in and open up the airbox a little, then that should about do it. Until I break something else. Also bent the shift lever so ordered a new one of those too. Well, Suzuki makes a low gel seat. Which for my short a$$ legs, it could come in handy. Maybe...
