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.
