    I am new to these bikes but am suprised how they seem to keep their resale value. Im looking at a 2003 with 10,000 miles on it. Back tire is shot and paint peeling off right side of swingarm near pivot. ( I have noticed this on a couple of them.) Bad paint? Anyway the Tank and plastics are almost perfect has a real nice rear rack and aftermarket skid plate. He wants $2000 for it, seems a bit high to me. I am also concerned about the 10K miles but maybe that's not a biggy assuming it's been cared for. He is the second owner and has only put about a 1000 miles on it.



    Any comments on the price and miles appreciated.



    Thank you!

    Price really depends on where you live. You didn't say. Let us know where you are from and I'm sure several members from your surrounding area will help. Here in Wash. State that's not a bad price, my buddy bought his 2004 for 2200. 10,000 miles not that bad if it's been kept up with oil changes and such.



    Good luck, it's a great bike.

    I feel thats a little too high just because of the mileage. Price depends on what part of the country you live in, sometimes you have to take what you can get.



    The peeling paint is due to the battery overflow hose leaking/dripping on the swingarm.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    offer $1400. Point out rear tire and that swingarm will need removed for servicing/inspected,cleaned, and painted at least. Possible parts replacement. Brakes possiblly, while wheel is off with 'such high miles'? Depending on your negotiating skills, you'll end up at $1600-$1800. Good luck, TIM

    "IF" the oil changes were done properly and valve adjustments done on time 10,000 miles are not that bad...... I have an 06 with 10,000 miles and it runs even better now that the first day I rode it home with 1 mile... The tire cost about $65 bucks, and the time involved with changing it............ It does sound like he ran it a lot harder than I did mine.............. My back tire looks as good as new yet................ I do NOT jackrabbit start every time.. The chain may need some help also......... Good luck.. These bikes are a riot. OMM.

    Just as a reference, I paid $1500 from a car dealer for my 03 with only 2350 miles on the clock. That was a year ago, maybe two.

    Hey thanks everyone. I think I'm gonna hold off and look for a little nicer one with less miles. My local dealer has 2 2012's for $3850. That doesn't seem bad but after Ca. taxes etc I'll be over 4K easy.



    Thanks for the feedback!

    There are a lot of eyes on this site if you're in the market for a TW. It's probably the best place to put the word out if you're looking for one.



    What part of Cali?



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.
