Ok chaps, any helpful input appreciated on this
i've fancied a SM for a while now, looked at a CCM but spotted a 02 KTM 640LC in a local dealers. Im taking it for a test ride in the week - is there anything that i should be looking out for with this model?

Check and see if they've had problems with any engine bearings. There is one in particular that is a common failure on older lc4's. I'm sure the specifics can be found on supermotojunkie or thumpertalk, I just don't remember the specifics.

Lots of vibration and kinda heavy but otherwise a solid bike. The SM610 is lighter and smoother and has a 6spd trans - I like it better but they are both good bikes, neither is a race bike but then neither requires too much maintence although working on the ktm is a pita compared to most thumpers.

have fun
