If new how big was the hole in the wallet?

I got mine for an incredibly low price that probably couldn't be matched now, but I have seen them on Ebay for not much more than a couple grand.

The trick is to find an Adventure, rather than a Super Duke. I guess they crash more SDs; Ebay has three of them right now. The $1300 one has some case damage BTW.

If you can live with the close-ratio tranny, or want to swap gears, the SDs will work fine.

Oh and Munn quoted me $3750 for a freshly rebuilt motor from KTM, not new but rebuilt with all new parts; no clue if this means the latest cases (re: Pyndon's rebuild thread which is must-read if the OP hasn't read it).
That price doesn't sound too bad (I mean, other than being a hell of a lot of money).

Four years ago, used, un-rebuilt engines were going for that, or more.

I miss round headlights.
