Hi all,

 

Not sure if this is the right place for this or not. I have a 2005 WR450F that I parked in 2007 and it has not been ridden or started since. It is in great shape and has some mods done to it (all free mods, titanium slip on, radiator guards, reusable oil filter, some other little things).

 

My problem is I am unable to get it running, no idea what could be wrong and I don't have much time to fix it, I would like to just sell it as is but have no idea what it could be worth. Is there any ballpark I could start in? is $2,000 too much to ask for this?

 

Thank you advance.

Did you leave gas in it that long?

Replace the jets and put in new gas. Most people only buy bikes that are running.

^ that

 

New pilot, new gas, remove the float needle and polish it and the cavity it sits in.

 

If you see lots of green corrosion, you will need to pull the carb and soak it in simple green.

Running, 2100 - 2200. Assuming it's in good shape.
