I was thinking of buying a new 2001 KTM 125 SX and was woundering how much you can feel the flex in the forks? Is there any thing else I should know about the bike.

Thanks, Travis

I dont think any riders(apart from MXA riders)can tell if the forks flex.Dont forget factory riders had 43mm forks a few years ago and they managed to cope with the flex.

How does the bike handle, is the motor strong, and is the susp. good. Also dose it track good through the whoops because I have a really hard time with them. Does the clutch feel good, are they reliable, and is it easy to get parts for them.

Thanks Travis

The KTM has easily the best engine in the class and is also very reliable.The steering isnt as good as most jap bikes and the suspension needs a bit of work.The clutch is awsome.Parts are good in Europe but im not sure about in the US.
