I am considering upgrading my son's KTM 50 pro-jr to a KTM 65SX. He is 9 years old and does some MX and a lot of trail riding. Can anyone give me feedback on the 65?
Are they reliable?
How do the compare with the KX65?

Thanks

I have found the KTM65 to be very reliable. If you just keep the air filter clean, routinely check all bolts, change tranny oil regularly and run the chain looser than it calls in the manual, you should have very little problems.

My son literally runs the sh*t out of his. He practices usually 3x's a week and races almost every weekend. We've not had a DNF this season.

Just keep up with routine maintenance. If your running in a lot of mud, would suggest getting fork boots or the sealsavers fork covers.
