I want to get back in to SM next year, but with something less violent than my old CR500, and somthing more than a 450. I am looking at the 525 KTM SM, but I wanted to know if anyone has raced one, or ridden it very hard, not street riding, but full on thrashing.
I have talked to my friends in MX, but the MX guys don't run the same RPM like SM. I am looking for any failures...IE valves, rods, pistons, that sort of thing. Any info would be great, Thanks.
