Finally got 'tarded! Picked up a 05 KTM 625 SMC. I love the bike so so far. First mod has been finished, derestricting the carb. Why the hell did ktm restrict it to start with? They only give you about a 1/4 of the total throttle twist to use. When I was riding it home from the stealer I had to hop on the interstate for a couple of miles...had to have the throttle pinned to stay at 75.
Once I figured out where the slide stop screw was located (never messed with a carb. before) it took no time to cut part of it off. Its tons better now. Heard its like 20 some hp with the restrictor and like 40 some with out. Next mod will probably be cleaning up the plate holder thingy and emission removal. Very happy with the purchase, even though I had to trade my beloved monster s4. I think the s4 found a good home.

Here are some pics...click to enlarge:

Re: picked up a 'tard today (Giannis)

KTM says around 300 dry. A little on the heavy side but so was the 400sm that I was looking at.
