Default 1998 Kawasaki KX250 or 2003 KTM SX250

Ok, My buddy has a bone stock KTM SX250 and thinks that it will beat my 1998 kx250 with a rebuilt top-end, after market reeds, and jetted carb. My kx's carb has also just been cleaned same for the power valve. The KTM has been sitting for 2 years with no attention and poorly managed.. But still runs strong. Which of the two do you think is faster?

What color powerband do you have in the KX that makes all the difference. If its a green one and he doesnt have a orange one then you can probably pedal faster than him.
