Need some advice on a wr400 that I am looking at buying....

It has been a real long time since I have posted on here. I use to have a 2000 wr400 and it was a great bike but I sold it due to many reasons and am now looking for a bike to replace it. I use to be a fairly competitive rider and could hold my own fairly well in our local hare scrambles. I have not ridden a bike for probably 5 years and have been looking for a used bike to ride around at our farms and maybe do a few funday rides with the local club. I have found a 2000 Yamaha wr400 with excel rims, devol radiator guards, white bros. pipe/exhaust, bark busters, and pro taper bars. This is a second owner bike and he is selling it because he is needing a little bit of money. I rode the bike this evening on his street and it ran good/strong and the compression seems to be very good. The bike feels tight and appears to be a good buy at $2000. Any opinons on whether this is a good deal? I'm not looking to go near as fast as I use to but would like something to trail ride with the kids and occasionally rip it up a little. Thanks.

I thought 2800 was good for all of that, so if you're getting a 2000 for...2000:) it sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
Where are you in TN? I'm in KY and have raced a couple HS with mid-south, also racing in D10 (KY). If your north Central we have an event in OCT in Gamaleil, KY right on th border.

btw.....is there any other pipes that I could swap out for to make it a little more quiet? It currently has a white bros. pipe and he says it has all the baffles in it now. I would like something not quite as loud if that would be possible. thanks again!

I think it was the AMA website I was on the other day that has the 50 states' equipment requirements, but the DS forum here is a good resource as well.
Aas far as the pip goes, I'm running a stock YZ yes YZ muffler on mine, and I think it's too loud, I'm looking at an FMF Q2 as a christmas present to myself (and everyone else who has to hear me!!)
Great move on the quiet pipe, less sound, more ground. and Great choice on your bike.
