I got a real good deal on mine used.
It was perfectly maintained mechanically by my buddy and in near perfect cosmetic condition. I paid $3000 but got a smoking deal because of the bikes condition. Some bikes sit and some bikes get ridden hard and are poorly maintained.You just never know what your going to get buying used.
I find that blue book values don't mean s**t in the real work when it comes to dirtbikes. I have always paid over blue book, but it may be different in your area. In AZ we ride all year (even in the summer heat ), don't have much water and bikes tend to last a long time. There is a good demand for used (used = less expensive) bikes here so the demand keeps the prices higher than blue book values.
They could range anywhere from $1500 to $4000.
There are alot of variables. Do your homework and don't get all excited when you find a bike you like. There will always be another deal down the road. Walk away from a deal if you have any hesitation. Never pay what they are asking unless it has everything you want and it's exactly what you are looking for (even then you shouldn't pay the asking price). I searched for 6 months (with cash in hand) before finding my bike.

Cycletrader online also has a price checker that allows you to check prices by region.

I would suggest you look in places no one else thinks of for dirt bikes. I got mine from a HarleyDavidson dealership in January. I bought mine in winter so I saved also because it was a buyers market.
Any shop you go to will be more willing to deal in the winter on anything other than a 4 wheeler because they are slower and more hungry for a sale.
Good luck, Eric
