Intro to TT and the biking world

I've read a ton on this forum and can't find anyone really complaining about the bike, but had to ask before I go spend some hard earned $$$.

...and make sure it runs and you can kick start it with the owners guidance.
Excellent advice. You need to be able to start it when it's dead cold and when it's red hot because you are it once you ride off into the sunset.
Always check your oil & coolant levels, tire pressure, spoke tension and be on the lookout for any loose bolts. Also, run premium pump gas and change the spark plug every 40-50 hours or every season. Other than that, get ready to hang on tight.

Thanks for the advice. I don't think I'll be able to pick up one for anything less than about $3000, is that too high?
Is that bone stock? Or, does it have lots of aftermarket items and mods done to it? That seems pretty steep. I'd be checking into newer bikes for that much cash.

The bike I'm looking at has a Power Bomb header, FMF Q pipe, and Power Now twin air power filter kit, newer sprocket and chain, 50% rear tire 75% front. Sounds like he kept good care of it. It's on e-bay so I'm even more skeptical about it. The biggest problem is I'm frothing at the mouth to get out there and ride.
Not sure what part of Cali you're in, but I did a quick search on Cycle Trader.com and found this link: http://adcache.cycle.../1/77442201.htm Could be sold already, but I'd check it out. This one looks clean and is DS'd!

And, TT is an awesome board. Everybody has given just the information I've needed. Thanks again.

I would say anywhere from $2100-$2500 if in very good condition. They have proven to be very good performing and reliable bikes. Hop up parts are plentyful.
