2004 KTM EXC 525 Racing
'04 525 KTM EXC Racing Four StrokeBy (I am an Owner) on Sep 30, 2021
I have owned my current '04 525 RFS plated for nearly 8 yrs previously I owned a '03 525 EXC RFS plated and a '01 520 MXC RFS so I guess you could say I like them. Previous to these I owned a '98 WR 400 Yamaha and '95 RXC 620 KTM that was highly modified. I'm currently 68yrs young and have been owning ... and riding M/Cs since 12 yrs old. The KTMs RFS EXCs in my opinion are some of the best all round off road bikes you can buy. They are a quality built machine and with slight modifications can ve set up to perform a wide range of riding. I have ridden them from Mexico to Canada off road in '01 were some days rides were 290miles I've ridden 10 LAB2V 500 mile dual sport rides. I've ridden them on 5 days of off roading in Death Valley where gas stops were over 200 miles. I've ridden them over 13,000' elevation in the White Mtns without speacial jetting mods. I only rated the ride and comfort 4 stars because the stock seat is narrow and stiff but after market seats can fix that issue. Great bikes and easy to maintain without pulling camshafts and changing shims like other manufactures bikes and I can still get parts for mine from KTM.
