I'm looking at a 07 YZ450F to buy. thing is mint 2 hours on it, showroom condition.

what it has is One Industries graphics and a Pro circuit T04 slip-on exhaust.

my question to you guys is this:

1.) what do you think it's worth?

and 2.) any issues with the 07's that i should be aware about?

this will be my first 4 stroke, i'm very good with a wrench and know my way around the bikes repair wise rebuilding my friends 06 450 and anothers 03 250F.

thanks guys :ride:

I would guess that $5K would be fair price for the bike. No real issues with the 07's other than the stock front tire is crap.

+1, around 5k sounds good if its anything under 5k that would be a steal!
i agree i think the front tires on most mx bikes are trash, and they get hard real quick

...and the chain. Don't leave the stock chain on it unless you hate sprockets.

Dont leave the stock chain on anything unless you hate sprockets. Most stock chains and tires are crap.

1.) what do you think it's worth?

http://sandiego.crai.../766524076.html

this is in So Cal the largest moto market in the US. I would expect to pay about 500.00 - 750 less in your area.

and 2.) any issues with the 07's that i should be aware about?


i would: regrease headset, linkage, check jetting after you ride, fuel screw as well, other then that finding time to ride it is my biggest issue.

hit the gym and build your endurance as well. going from a smaller bike to a bigger bike the 450 tired me out really fast.

its faster and easier in some areas but others it gets down right heavy when you are really trying to push it to its limits in the end of a race.

5000 is about the going price for the 07. Have you seen my 06 I have for sale. Look under Craig's List, SF valley. 06 Yamaha yz450, Woodland Hills. I 'm selling mine for 4000. Mine is WAY better condititon than the one you are looking at.

That is exactly what I paid brand new 5 months back, 5,000 for a used 07 is Too much don't care if it has 2 hrs. 4200 would be fair.
