Thanks for the replys I'm still trying to decide what I want to do. If I do buy it i'm going to have to put DOT approved tires on it so it will pass inspection (he doesn't ride it on the road much so he hasn't bothered getting it inspected for a few years). I would probably get a new piston and rings put in. I'm not really worried about the starter, the battery in my honda
has been dead since a month after I got it. So if I pay $1,800 (I doubt he will come down any, he first had it listed for $2,500) for it and put tires and a piston in it I'll have around $2,300 in it assumeing it doesn't need anything else. I guess $2,300s not bad for a 2003 fourstroke with a new piston and tires.
