I bought my 97 in March. It had 2000 miles on it and I paid $1100. It's in near perfect condition. The carb was dirty and needed adjustment, but everything else is great. Happy shopping. -jason

Put some fresh gas in it. I had the same issue after I bought my 1997 DR in March. Once I had some fresh gas and the carb was adjusted, she ran perfect. Keep us posted.

MPG questions

I know the MPG question has come up many times before, so forgive me if I beat a dead horse.

Roger on the regular fuel. I'll give that a try. Due to ethanol and carbs not getting along, I thought higher octane would be better. Air filter is new and clean. Mileage is 3800, and has never...
