It was in showroom condition and had never been off the pavement, but it would cost me at least another $2k to get mine to the state of performance of that one.

The one you are looking at has at least $2000 in extras, plus the sweat equity. So, I don't think that $4500. would be a bad deal. It looks great and already has all the main things everybody wants done to it, including the programmer, exhaust bomb and new knobbies. Go for it.
Thanks for the great points and making this decision more difficult for me

Sounds like the exhaust is going to make the bike louder which isn't what I'm going for. I'm fine with it, but I come/go at odd hrs. of the day/night. I'm not one to choose to annoy my neighbors

Since it has little resale value, I wouldn't be surprised if the seller has the OEM exhaust. If he doesn't, you might raise that as an issue and bargain on account of it.

I prefer quiet myself, as do neighbors and landowners that allow access to trails across their land.

I have more than that into mine, and I got a smoking deal on it used, with no modifications. If, and only if, the mods on that $4500 bike are ones you would want, then it's a good deal.

Alright, thanks for the noob questions. You guys are really helping.

Slowly working a deal on this bike.. $4K, and he'll remove the exhaust/header, and put the stock back on. I keep the exhaust/header for resale. Looks like I can run the programmer on a stock exhaust. Anybody running that? Any issues with that setup or should I also pull the programmer? I wasn't looking for a project. Am I opening a can of worms?

This bike, that is only about 40 miles away, is looking better and better.

Thanks for all the help.

Just go buy it already. At $4k with the aftermarket exhaust to sell, that looks like a very reasonable deal, assuming in person it is as the photos suggest.

cjbiker's spatula case proctector



Got the cjbiker case protector on my WR250R - looks like cheap insurance, and a good idea. Paid $1 for the spatula at the dollar store, cut it out with a jig saw, then cleaned up the edges with a bench sander. Cleaned everything with isopropyl, and used a bed of red high temp Permatex silicone to adhere it.

I filed down the sharp edges from the case side of the shifter, and blue locktited it on. I suggest anyone who has not removed those, do so right away - that sucker was wicked sharp. 2 minutes with a file was all it took to make it smooth.

The stock shifter bends so easily, I'm sure I'll bend it again, but at least the malleability should lessen the chances of damage to internals.

Sounds like the seller is working with you here. I can't answer the programmer question, because I don't have one. But, I've been waiting for someone to answer because I want to know if I need one on my stocker. Hey, those programmers are expensive, so I hope, for your sake that they are useful even with a stock exhaust.
