First thing first. I can't help you for the price, I'm from Québec Canada . But...
Buying a used dirt bike is gambling !!!
But it's worth it if you do your homework :
Where does it come from ?
Previous owner ?
Complete mechanical inspection ?
The wr 400 had a sensitive clutch, is it the case with this one ?
What is the overall shape of the bike ?
Look around (if possible)to evaluate comparable machine and then you will have a better appraisal of the bike.
Is the dealer offering you some kind of waranty ?
Those bikes are really great, they offer a lot. But you have to consider the background of the bike.
Now to add to the dilemna, it seems to be a really nice bike, .
I hope it helped you,

I hear prices vary quite alot by region. I sold my very clean 2000 WR400 two months ago for 3,300. I felt this was fair for both sides. I got a brand new 02 WR426 this winter for just less than 5,000, but this is Michigan.

More on prices: I sold my '01 YZ 426 four months ago for $3,300. My friend just sold an immaculate '01 WR 426 for $3,700. But that is just the regional market.
Hope this helps.

Plus he does not have much experience riding and from what i hear the 450 is a monster
You have to realize that this wr 400 is not a sunday dessert !!
If your friend has no experience on a serious dirt bike, tell him to spend money on good protective equipement, it's no luxury. It does make the difference between to fall and get back up on the bike, or to fall and stay down til your buddy comes back .
And the guys are right, your klx 300 will be no match for the WR
