If the bike is in all around top condition considering it's age, that sounds like a fair price considering the extras. Is the suspension White Power or stock suspension modified by White Brothers? The XR600 is a great bike, I've ridden them on and off for a long time, they are reliable as a hammer as long as the engine is pretty much stock. They are also a comfy scoot for guys like me whose knees are shot and can't stand up for long periods. An Edelbrock carb brings some hidden power to life. Good luck.

I recently bought a 1997 XR600R for 2500.
It was a really clean bike and dual sported, as well. (CA)

I would see if I could get him down a few hundred, then ride the crap out of it.

My '93 came with more extras than that and I only paid $2500.
