Looks like a clean bike. Has the Akra exhaust. Check to see if it has the racing Y pipe and aftermarket headers too. Also, if its equipped with a FCR41 carb, that would be great. The stock carb is a Mikuni BST40 CV carb. It works OK, after a little tweaking but the FCR is superior.

I think the 2000 models had fork rebound on one side and compression on the other side. Later models had rebound and compression on both sides. Although the bike looks clean, if its high mileage (15k miles or more) you might want to think about the cost of checking engine internals or freshening up the motor (piston, rings, valves, cam chain) and suspension if you decide to buy it.

That's low miles. Shouldn't have any problem getting parts here in the USA. The LC4 engine is pretty common. Body parts might be more of a challenge but the Duke was also sold here and there is little if any difference between the USA and Canadian models. I wouldn't worry too much about parts availability. Go to ktmtalk.com, lots of good info there on the LC4 models.

One other thing... the oil change routine is PIA. Not difficult, just a pain due to having to burp the air out of the frame downtube which is an oil reservoir. Keep plenty of rags/paper towels handy when doing this.

$5100 is a lot but considering the low mileage and condition of the bike, you might consider it. Depends on what else you're looking at as far as other bikes. With the Duke, you'll have a fun and reliable ride. They do shake a bit though but you'll get used to that.

that's a sweet bike. I had a 2002. ditched the stock BST carb for an FCR41. IMO you have to dump the stock BST carb.


One thing I forgot to mention. the wheels are really soft. check the runout, etc to be sure they are not bent. replacements are difficult /expensive to find.

Buy a Husky 610 sm The Husky already has a great carb on the 06 and 07 models The Husky is lighter than the Duke with a better suspension. Better Brembo brakes.I have both so I can tell you from experiance . I have had the Duke for 7 yrs. The 610 has alot less vibes as well. Duke has a bit more top end due to a little more displacement. Look at the two in this forms classifieds for a start a seven year newer bike for the same cash and a better bike at that .
