Do you mean an 03 450 or 02 426. I hope thats your mistake and not his.

$2000 sounds good either way. Both are great bikes, ask him what kind of maintenance the guys done on it.

Theres some good posts about how to look at used bike and what to look for.

Good luck.

There's more than simply 24 cc's; 1 less gear and it's more refined. But I highly doubt you can get a 450 for anywhere near that price.
