KTM 350EXC-F Hours/Miles/Maintenance?

I'm looking to pick up a 350EXC-F over the off season. I took a trip to the dealer, and I'm not sure I'm ready to drop $11k on a brand new one to throw into trees...so I'm looking used.

I've tried Googling, but I can't find a maintenance schedule for the bikes. I'm mostly looking for milestones so I know if something is up against major maintenance. I plan to go over whatever I buy over the winter and service bearings/suspension/valves/fluids/etc.

I'm seeing used ones from 20 hours to 200 hours. Miles from ~500 to ~5000. Prices seem to vary ~$2k. $2k is $2k. That is no small amount of change to me.

So really my questions are:
1. When are the major maintenance milestones?
2. Should I be wary of 5k/200hr on one of these bikes?
3. Any reason to avoid/target a specific year?
4. Anyone got one for sale?

Thanks!
