At least this one has a knobby tire, because my loading ramp is only 6 ft long, which makes for a pretty steep climb into the toyota! My supermoto with a street tire probably has no chance driving into the back of this truck..

The bike is an 02 KTM 250 2 stroke. I haven't even ridden it except for a couple rips around the yard where I bought it from in Yorkton.

Nice, but the maintenance on the KTMs scares me. How many filters does that one have?

I'm referring to how many KTMs have multiple oil filters and screens. Some of my friends ride KTMs and have complained about that.

Here, I found a vid of an oil change on a KTM. It's a 4-stroke though:

The first few minutes they are just draining the oil and cleaning 2 screens, then at 3:20 it's time to change the 2 oil filters. Makes quite a mess compared to a spin-on!

The 2 stroke is a different animal than a 4 (goes without say I guess). I have heard the ktm 2 stroke is a pretty solid reliable machine. Knock on wood!

Gave it a good test ride yesterday and I love the way it rides. Stable and confidence inspiring, power comes on hard and early!
