What would you pay for a low mileage (less than 1000 miles), non running 2004 DRZ400s? Probably needs a carb cleaning and a battery. Bike is all stock and has not been run since 2006? $1000 to $1500?

I gave $3000 for a 2006 DRZ400s with 400 miles in January 2013. Battery was good but I had to clean the carb. I felt that was a good enough price.

I paid $2000 for my 04 back in June. Stock except bars. 8600 miles. And it runs fine.

When you try to remove the seat from the carb body be sure to only grab the out side of the seat area. If you even slightly Nick the inside of the seat area the needle assembly will get hung up on it. I found that out the hard way.

I'd jumper it and make sure it turns over strongly with good compression and no bad noises. Assuming nothing else is wrong, it's easily worth $1500, and probably considerably more.

Thanks
Sorry for the delay.... it took me a while to find the pics:

I took a small piece of Aluminium. Notched it for a hose clamp. Then made a countersink for the fastener. The hose clamp (band clamp? Runs between the block and the sensor and wraps around the fork.

This way both sets of wheels have the magnet mounted the same distance from the axle rather than having the location based on the caliper. Which changes with the wheels.

That'd be a very fair price and typically your only looking at a carb clean and a battery but I worked on one once that needed a top end after sitting too long. There was corrosion on the piston and the rings were stuck. Not trying to scare you but realize you are taking a risk, albeit at that price not a very big one. Good luck.

Anyone have a right passenger peg bracket they don't want? I'm looking for one to cut up for the section the exhaust mounts to.

Thanks Gadget...that's exactly what I needed! No worries on the delay since I got a head cold and don't feel much like working on the bike anyways.
