Cool what would you do? HELP!!!!!!

So I am in a tight spot what should i do about this kinda deal i got going? I have an 01 honda rc51 that only has 11k and is the cleanest 01 youve ever seen. This guy wants to trade me his 02 r1 with 32k but has had the sproket taken down one tooth so it really doesnt have 32 on it probably a little less but he wants to give me his bike plus 1500 cash. what should i do? I want an r1 but not with that many miles

Keep the RC. There is a reason why this guys wants out of the R1 so bad. And I don't think its cause we wants a RC51 that bad. There's something wrong with the bike.

$5,000 - $6,000 would be my guess, but see what KBB or NADA says

NADA says 4K low retail, 5,225 Avg retail. that includes aftermarket exhaust, which most people do to the bike
