Hey guys looking at one of these, any good?

Looking for some green laning and a few proper MX tracks days as there are a few around here, am I asking too much of it? Is it upto the job?

Its a 2007 on an 08 plate carb version, presumably went FI after 2007?

Any thought either way welcome, still on the look out for a KTM....

ive had two, both on a 54 plate..Awesome bikes but very powerful, much more torque that the 450 EXC. but used to give me really bad arm pump, especially slow tight narly riding, but if your after a flying machine then go for it.. much better value for money than the KTM, but i found the motor a little to much for my riding ability and ive opted for a 400 EXC.

arm wrenching power? find a nice 380 engine and slot it into a modern 250 frame! ta da!

the people that have ridden the huskys always seem to rave about them, always had a soft spot for ktms 450...

Hmmmmm its not fuel injected last of the carb 07 but on 08 plate, prices vary on ebay see some 250's of the same year and they are asking more and 450 from 2009 upto 4k, its the cheapest on the bay and could not find many on autotrader to compare.

When did you pay that for your 04? recently?
