Well not that bad

So my questions:
1: Is the KTM 530 as reliable and easy to maintain on the go and in the long run (adventuring + singletrack) as the Husaberg 570 when it comes to the engine ????

2: If not, is it possible to make it so ??? within reason...$$$

My reason for this is that it's alot easier (here) to find a fine KTM 530 vs a Husaberg 570
plus they are cheaper... (I'm thinking of a -09 KTM if I go that route)

I do like the carb and the kickstarter on the KTM,
but I still prefer the Husaberg ( Blue & Yellow at birth )

Its effectively the same engine rotated 180 degrees. If you wanted you could add 2t KTMberg plastic/seat/subframe and tank to the 530 and it would be blue.
