Can you estimate the kms/miles for a used KTM 950 ADV 04?

Can you estimate the kms/miles for a used KTM 950 ADV 04?
I want to buy a 950 ADV 04 and the seller told me that the bike have 34000 km . I think this milleage is very low for that type of motorcycle.

The chassis and the swingarm are repainted for cosmetical wishes(the seller told me that, but do not know what to think).
I will attach some photos with it and a video.

34000km is nothing for a 950, I bought mine 03 with over 50000km on it. Just make sure its been serviced properly.

This is a very useful website when you get one http://www.ktm950.info/

I know this site.

I think this milleage(34000km) is fake, this is my fear. Look at the pictures(fork tube and at all motorcycle) and at the video(sound engine)

Mileage on used 950s varies WILDLY. I bought mine in 2009, and it had 24,000 miles on it at the time (roughly 38,000 km). It now has 44,000 miles (roughly 77,000 km). There was a KTM 950 SE Erzberg Edition sold here in Iowa a few years ago that was literally never ridden and had something like 1,000 miles on it. It just depends on the owner and what their riding preferences were.

The LC8 motor is a real workhorse and can survive for a very long time with just proper maintenance. The questions to ask are how the basics were maintained. The big issue is water pump maintenance.

The seller told me that the motorcycle was service following the instructions from this site: http://www.ktm950.info/

Do you think that milleage(34000) is fake after you viewed the photos/video? This is the question from this topic.

Looks like a bike that has been on the ground once or more, which is not very unusual for those bikes. Just by looking at the chain you can tell the owner is not the most dedicated maintenance guy.
It is imposible to "fake" the mileage on those bikes, unless you change the speedometer unit or run the bike with the speedometer sensor disconnected.
Overall, looks like a good opportunity for a price negotiation.

What about the frame? Thought only the newer 990R came with an orange frame?

Looks to have had a bit of a rough life and maybe seen a little salt at some point might not be that big of a deal if maintained properly.

Buying used is always a bit of a gamble and there are plenty of people out there that will not be totally honest when selling.

Does sound a bit rough when running but they do.

But if price is right buy and check clutch bolts maybe bolts on ignition rotor and other stuff worth looking over when buying used.

The frame and swinging arm on that bike are from a 990, the frames on the black 950s were black and swinging arms were silver at least in Europe, but I think they were the same world wide.

Looks to me like the bike has had minimum maintenance, and has spent a lot of time outside, IE maybe in a car port but not fully indoors. I would assume that it would need to be fully serviced and I'd detail it and seal the corrosion off so it does not get worse. Its definitely been rode and been tipped over a time or two..

Unless it was offered fairly cheap I'd find one that had a tangible good maintenance feel.

salvage repair?

With the orange frame and black swing arm and the way things are lined up, I would say that is a conglomeration of at least two bikes.

I found a true 2005.5 with 8k mile for $7000.00

The chassis and the swingarm are from 950 but there are repainted. I told that in the first post. The seller is a mechanic.The repainting was done only for design preffereces and the repainting was made in Italy---this is the seller afirmation about this. I did'n see something wrong with this chassis (welding/craks). The motorcycle is from Italy until 2012 and then transported in Romania. In Romania all man want BMW(good reputation in this country--> low prices for KTM).(

He want for it 4750 euro(6200$).(new oil/filter oil, rear tyre, water pump,air filter, iridium spark,brake/clutch fluid, rear/front brake pad) topcase/sidecase KTM, gel seat, handguard,crash bar, carbon protection, GPS support

Sounds a bit high, seen cheaper in Sweden and Sweden is NOT a cheap country.

Since we know its a bit of hack composed of several different bikes I would say it more then likely the odometer is from another machine also so mileage might not be accurate.

Would not pay premium price for a -04 engine after what I have been through with mine with leaking cylinder base gaskets and worn engine cases on the sealing areas.

2005 engines had some reinforcements in V part of the engine.

Pass on that one.
