850? For a 2001. Good luck

Youre basically getting what you pay for but a cheap starter bike not too bad

Just because this bike is older than you are doesn't mean it's not worth the asking price.

Lmao, ive come across slightly newer ones with that price just saying. But you're right, 850 and maybr some wiggle room you'll have a good beater starter bike to get you on the road and maybe make it back home

Yeah. There is a pretty wide price range for these bikes, even though they were practically identical until '07. Saw an '06 for $3k the other day and an '03 for $1300. For $850 and a little elbow grease on the carbs, this would be a great commuter that the insurance companies would practically pay you to ride.

have you ever owned one of these? You cant kill them. Its a good price especially if you can do the carbs yourself. Clean the carbs, check the valves, change the oil, and ride it for a million miles. If it goes boom after a few years, which is unlikely. You got more than your moneys worth. Or clean the carbs and flip for a few hundo profit.

Ooo no. Did do all the lwe races this year on the ninja 250s and a motor blew up, carbs messed up and couple
other little things but we were pushijg the bikes to the limit so maybe not the best comparison

My grom has 5k though and its running strong
