    Ive got an 04 525 sitting at Crashlingtons house. Comes with motard and dirt wheels, and a bunch of other shit. Rear brake caliper needs a look at by memory.

    if you don't have the budget for rebuilds a burger 570 and the obsolete husky are a bad choice also

    Cant speak for the burg but had a smr450 and have seen others hit 15 to 20 thou without rebuild just regular oil changes and keeping on top of clearances

    Have ended up with a mint 525 picked up from yamaha Mandurah with 1400kms on it

    525s are mint, I'd happily have another...

    You know how my SXV gets ridden, coming up for 20,000km since the engine was last apart, valves checked once in that time...

    Only issues in that time are gear lever return spring and a stator...

    When built right they are a reliable motor considering they were really designed to be a race only motor...

    Problem with the internet you only here all the bad about them

    Im fairly useless on the trails so a 550 vtwin would have never been i good choice haha

    The 525 is still gonna be to much power for me offroad but will be good on road as a sumo will just need to keep practicing on the trail

    And only 3800 bucks down on the bike aswell

    was more along the lines of rebuilding a berg or a old pre ktm husky can be a nightmare getting parts and about 600% over priced

    525's are a good motor, heavy & fairly bullet proof for a euro bike
