Hi All,

New to this site,just a quick question, at a glance how do you tell an 09 450 EXC from an 08?

Cheers

If engine number starts with 8.. its an 08


The engine number starts with model year,
then 3 digits for engine type
then 5 numbers

Frame number has VBK to start
then MXN or similar for model type

then 4 for 4 stroke or 2 for 2 stroke

then two numbers

then model year

then M

then 6 numbers that you tell a KTM dealer and he tells you the original engine number, supplying dealer, first owner, date of manufacture, date of sale etc

Take a look in the gallery part of this forum too.... helps with the fork colour changes etc
