Your thoughts on FZR 400's?

I need to get a new bike and I found this FZR-400 on craigslist

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/mcy/928981484.html

I am going to look at it tomorrow and I think I'll offer the blue book value of $2200. Is that a reasonable offer? Anything I should know about FZR-400s?

very cool. would be very popular at the track, or anywhere really.

i used to have a 1990 fzr 1000. i would have traded it for a 400 just for the cool factor.

Book value doesn't mean diddly on a vehicle that old. If you low-ball him and he doesn't accept the deal right away, expect to have it sold out from under you.

I had a 89 FZR 400 as my first street bike. It was a ton of fun and I really wish I still had it. It's a good bike to learn on and is great in the corners.

Awesome and fun, fun, fun! Book value means nothing, imo. Offering 75% of book doesn't factor in, either. This is a bike you get because you want or are specificly looking for this bike.

if money is no thing, go get it and maybe you will like the ergos and power and whatnot. it's an awesome bike, but really- what flipsideup said, you go searching for this bike.
i found one in austin recently and dude said it was one of 2 fzr 400's in good running condition in texas. i dont know if that was uninformed 16 year old language for 'hard to find' or if it was a fact, but i havent seen many.

a bike this old and rare is going to probably need a lot of care. what parts that do not fit on a 600 will probably be hard to get a hold of.
