2000 yz 426

Hi everyone. I am new to the site and I must say that there is a load of information here. Here's my situation: I am 27 years old and looking into getting back into bikes. I was on a bike from the age of 7 to 23. My last bike was a 1997 CR250. I was primarily into racing motocross. I haven't been on a bike since I was 23. I want a bike for trail riding/motocross type of riding, but not to race. My future "cousin in law" had a 2000 yz 426 that he sold to a friend. They are the only two owners of the bike. The bike probably has a total of 40-50 hours on it. The guy who owns it now has taken great care and maintained the bike perfect. He has added a few mods to the bike. The bike is in great condition. He is asking $2000 for it. Any thoughts????

I appreciate your replies.

My last bike was an '97 CR250 and now I have an '02 426 and love it. Great bike and mostly bulletproof.

Thanks! I rode the bike this last weekend and I loved the power delivery. Do you think the price is fair?

if you know the hist its prob worth it....its alot of bike.......i was looking at one too but wasnt satified with the history...........bike was in ok shape but looked like it has some hrs on it.....and some unknown hist so i passed....2000 model for 2000 just like yours.......wont buy a bike like this if i cant be reasonably sure it was maintained well......if it was, im told they are good dependable bikes .....just be sure. some have had 3-4 owners and hist is not easy to trace. those id stay away from...good luck

Thanks. I know the first owner quite well and I know that the bike was hardly ridden and taken care of. The current owner I know, but not that well. After looking at the bike in his shop (which was very clean and organized) and talking to him, I can tell the bike has been well taken care of. Thanks again.

I think that if you know the bike and its shape $2000 is okay. Not a steal but not a rip off either. I paid $2300 for an 2000 in 2005 from a friend who is anal about maintenance.
