Make sure you go through the H.O.W. and read about all the TSPs. I did before buying mine and knew what I was in for. I got a 2005.5 with 9,000 miles and had the clutch slave go out on me pretty quick. Did the fuel pump soon after that as preventative, and when the valve check came due I did the water pump, re-jetted carbs and few other little things. I ended up dumping more money into it a little faster than I thought I would, but am a bit at ease having it done. Only been stranded buy her once, and that was a total freak electrical fluke.
Hopefully KTM comes through with a little something for you. On a 12 year old bike regardless of mileage, I kind of doubt it though. Keep us posted.

I could tell the 2005.5 buy the seat. I believe the newer one had a step seat and the older ones were more flat. The heat shield on the exhaust has no holes and extends beyond the frame on the newer models too.
When in doubt, take it as a compliment.
