Are you from Hayfork, CA?
I have a wr 400 and It is a great bike. No problems. plenty of power. Not the same snap as a crf 450 or a yzf 450 but on anything other than a track or open road who cares. If you are from hayfork, the wr will fit the style of riding you will most likely do to a T.

Keep in mind that with the red sticker/green stick deal in CA that the "market" price will be higher than Kelly Blue Book. 2003 and newer WRs are red sticker which puts upward pricing pressure on 2002 and older.
I searched for 2+ months for a 01 or 02 WR426 in exclellent condition. I found two and both sold before I could get my hands on them. I never saw the first as it was on consignment at a bike shop in Grass Valley (it sold in 2 hours) the second one was in the bay area (it sold the same day the add was posted). I ended up finding a new 01 wr426 back east on cycletrader.com. Hope this helps.
