Looking at what else a buyer could get for similar money is sometimes an insightful thing to consider.

where are these $1600 to $1900 clean bikes when I'm looking to buy? Most bikes that I've seen used under $2000 are partial to complete pieces of shit with rusted linkage bearings, tired engines, leaky seals, worn tires, cobbled together with mismatched bolts, no title, etc etc etc.
Ha, Ha, I know what you mean. My guess is that many of these "super deals" happen when a buyer/seller know each other, or the 'friend of a friend" kind of a deal. When I check out the local papers, a $1600 bike is usually nothing but a worn out pile of sh*t that I would be embarassed to haul in the back of my truck. BTW $2500 obo sounds fair for a bike in good condtion, IMHO.

I think maybe closer to 2000 might sell the bike faster.

That is why I put negotiable. I was hoping someone would at least ask. I guess that most of the TT regulars already have bikes so they aren't really looking for a 2000 WR. Thanks for the replies though. I'm glad to see some other people think the same.
I took it to my local dealer to ask if I could put it on consignment. The sales manager came outside and looked at it briefly then commented how clean it was and how it would fit right in with his lineup because he has nothing used like it right now. Of course, then he offers to try and sell it for me and give me $1700 while they keep the rest. Book right now is between 2500 and 2600. No thanks.

Yeah, I'd agree - some of you got some steals...01 YZ for $1500 and an 03 for $2,500 - that would be the exception vs the rule. This guy's '03 should be around $2,500 maybe a little less for someone that really wants the bike.
I agree with that, but each "locale" is a bit different- check your craigslist!
from what I see around here, this bike should sell in the 2500 range. many late 90's 2 strokes around here on CL for 1700-2000 grand, so if someone wants a newer 4 stroke, then there you go.
I just bought my 03 WR450 with 160 miles for 3300. was going to be 35, but the rear subframe was bent so he came down for that. this was a good deal for a basically un-used stock bike around here...
