If I remember correctly the SX came with 48mm forks and the offroad bikes came with 43mm forks. If they are the 43mm forks I would definitely pass just because of the added flex. If they are the 48mm forks the axle size is different than the 2003+ KTM forks so fitting the spindle may be an issue.

Either way they are also 20 years old so they will likely need some work (and parts, which may not be available anymore) to function properly. I was in a similar situation as you and waited until a reasonable deal on a pair of newer forks popped up.
 
i was looking at a cheap alternative to have spare fork because i plan on switching the 500 exc to 450 xc-f or sx and they come air fork , so i figure those old fork revalve could do the job instead off air fork .
i will pas on those old fork . they were 200 $canadien and not leaking chrome was good .
thank you

Flexy front ends follow ruts worse. It's one of the reasons the mototrax front was so terrible, the flexy spindle allowed the ski to follow the ruts the ski grabbed.
