      "Need"? Probably not.
      I'd consider pulling the plugs and fogging the cylinders. Maybe overfilling the crank. The goal is to keep the moisture out and keep things from corroding.

      But really, ~2...

      Today I went to a KTM dealership for the first time ever. I didn't do anything to my own bike, but I rubbed my junk against someone's future 1190 ADV. Plus an entire row of KTM 2-smokes.

      Found a...

      +1 Bike looks like a ton of fun. And better yet, a ton of fun for the buck! (My favorite kind of fun.)

      It was tough because the three machines I rode were pretty different. The first 300 I rode had every trick part you can imagine on it. Rekluse z-START (which I managed to stall anyway), rear brake...

      Rode a couple 2-stroke KTMs today. A 250 and two 300's; one with a rekluse clutch and one without. Really shocked at how easy to ride they were. And the 300's were setup for experienced woods racers,...

      Installed the bags in the JSW today (along with new struts). They are cool. Loaded up the dirty-bike on the trailer and blasted ~15 psi into the bladders. Leveled off the rear quite nicely. So cool.

      My own experience parallels yours a little. I spent the first 18 years of my riding life on the street riding a couple different things including a monstrous Bandit 1200....

      The one thing I hear about the older KTM models is they use needle bearings for the bottom end.. and these can prove troublesome, requiring premature rebuilds.

      Just rode a 2015 KTM 350 XCF-W that had been plated. Wholey poop, I think I'm in lust.

      I bet the 500 EXC is really, really close to the "perfect" dual-sport.

      Really lathered up for a 2-stroke right now. We'll see if this 'tude sticks for long. But right now I'm thinking it would be a ball to try to master a 2-stroke machine.

      Yeah. Kind of there with the DRZ. It's got DOT knobbies on it, which are just okay everywhere. But they wear fast on the pavement and don't inspire confidence there. I'm sure they are very meh in the...

      Hmm... I glazed over the fact that it was a non-street version.

      Do you need/want to plate it? You are in NJ? How strict are they? In NH it is not hard to plate a "off-road only" DRZ. But just a...

      OP: I wonder if the BB kit guy would take $2500 if you showed up cash in hand. An extra $500 for a bike that runs well with a BB kit seems reasonable to me.

      That's my $0.02. Good luck, have fun,...
