I plan on a mix of MX and trials. With some of the mods could I use this bike for both? I don't plan on racing just riding for fun.
What mods would you guys suggest?
What would be a good price?
Thanks for the advice.

Mods? Hehe that's why this forum is here!
The first thing is greasing all the bearings (yes ALL of them!). The tires will probably stink for Florida sand. After that, new bars, jetting, the basic YZ mods (timing, t-stop, grey wire, BK, etc).
The YZ style seat/tank may be high on the priority list. My suggestion is build your own seat w/ Guts soft foam, tall heigh if you're over 6'0". It's the softest stuff out there, IMHO. A stock YZ seat is brick-hard.

I picked up a 00 WR400 about six months ago for $4500 and was looking to have a play/sometimes race bike. I have added a Baja Kit to make it street legal for the odd occation when I need to stop in town for gas or other conveniences. It is the perfect combination bike. I used to race offroad heavily and wanted a bike which performed offroad while still offering trail riding to take my kids/wife along.
All the mods, free ones, are worth taking the time to do, but depending on your requirements for performance are not required. You can play ride the bike as is, the mods just make the grin bigger.
Also, the help offered here on TT will get you through the unknowns if you decide to take on more advances improvements.
My 0.02 worth.
