I have a friend who is selling his 01 wr426. He is the 2nd owner, but I knew the first owner so I know the history of the bike. My other friend may want to buy it(they don't know eachother). I would like to see it work out for both for them. The bike: Appearance wise it is in good shape, the bike has honestly about 1000 miles total. All original plastic, new rear tire, free mods, FMF Q. What it needs: new chain and sprockets, new bars(stock steel are bent). The thing even has the original grips. The bike runs great after a jet cleaning. What's it worth here in socal?

What's NADA say it's worth? Take that number and apply the 10-20% buddy discount, depending on how close you guys are...SC

Doesn't sound like its had any work done to it other than the muffler. With that like info I'd say 3000.

Only 1000 miles and it needs a chain/sprockets and the bars are bent? Sounds like a tough 1000 miles :busted:

Most new bikes don't even make it one ride before the stock chain and sprockets get replaced. The rest is compliments of my friend's nephew.

Where did you get that information? :busted: My 02 still has the stock setup.

Here in Pennsylvania the high end would be $2200.

What I mean is that I, along with others, don't like to constantly have to adjust the stock chains that are prone to stretching after every ride. A good chain, adjust a couple of times and it's good for the life of the sprockets.

My stock chain was a DID O-ring chain. It seemed like a good chain to me. I only had to adjust it a few times and its still in great shape and so are the sprockets. I changed it all out last year just because.
