I've had the same bike for a year and a half now and it has been great. Extreamely reliable and loads of fun. Give it a good look over, be sure to check the oil and the air filter. If he can't keep up with the basic stuff then there's a good chance the bike wasn't very well maintained. If I were you I would tell him not to warm it up so you can see how it starts when it's cold and take it through all the gears if you can. I can't really think of any specific problems that these bikes have other than the chain eating away the frame. Just curious, how much is he asking for it?

i have had a 99 wr 400 since 98 i have put over 14k miles on it super hard off road riding not dual sport or fire roads I'm talking class a enduro and desert rides 150 miles in a day and the only problem i ever had with the bike was i broke the throttle cable at glen Helen one day, the bike is built rock solid, i would buy another one. keep fresh oil in it and clean air filter.
