Need your opinion on the price of a WR426

Ok fellas...

My roomate is looking at a 2001 WR426 that has new plastics and literally looks like it just came off the showroom. He has the guy down to $2300. We haven't gone to look at it yet, just seen the pics the guy sent us. I think it's a good deal, seeing how I got my 2001 XR400 for $2300, and it needed an odometer and front number plate.

Assuming it rides ok and the engine is in good shape, what do you guys think?

Deal or No Deal?

:thumbsup:

For me, it wouldn't be about the money, it would be about the improvements (auto-decompression for one) the '03 450 has over the '01 426 - for not much more $$, if any.

Thats a fair price, I just bought an 02 with 800 miles on it. It was a 1 owner and a left over model new in 04, in similar condition to what you described. I paid $2300.00 , Mine still had original, graphics, front tire, chain, sprockets. The guy bought a new 450 , for the e start.

Well, my roomie brought it back -- the thing is in great shape. I don't get the big deal about the decompression. If you know what to do , it's not hard. I used to kick his yz400f for him when he first got it, and this wr426 kicks the same way. I think he got a great deal, this bike is in top shape. Thanks for the info guys

Let see what it looks like...(pics)
