Stolen 2008 KTM 250 EXC Sunshine Coast

Hi all,

I am writing in the hope that someone in the motorcycle community may be able to help me, as my 2008 KTM 250 EXC was stolen, while chained up in secure underground parking in Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast, Qld. This happened between Sunday evening 12 April 2015 and Tuesday morning 14 April 2015.

I have attached photos.

It was in excellent condition and had distinctive white plastics, with KTM Racing sticker kit and bright orange Acerbis seat. I will try upload photos of the engine number, ignition (with serial number I believe) and the VIN, which is unfortunately just a damaged sticker. The bike also had a few identifying features and although some could easily be swapped out, others are more permanent:

The rear bracket securing the expansion chamber was snapped off the bike frame itself, near the kick starter.
The kick stand bolt that attached the spring to the kick stand iteself had previously snapped off and had been drilled out in an attempted repair.
Had a steering damper.
Pro taper bars
Billet fuel cap
Busted dust seal on the bottom of the rear brake master cylinder
Rear brake pads need replacing

VIN: VBKGSA2068M23925 (VIN was a damaged sticker on the steering stem)
Engine Number: 8-548 73174
Ignition serial number: 54839031700

If anyone comes across someone looking to sell a bike like this it would be hugely appreciated if you could please do what you can to get their details...or the bike back!

The bike is uninsured and any help would be greatly appreciated. Happy to pay a fair reward.

Many thanks
Chris Conway

Get it on the stolen dirt bike register. Won't make a huge diff, but everything helps in these cases.

Edit: seems site is down for maintenance at the moment. Hopefully it's back up soon. http://www.stolenmotorcycleregister.com
