yz400f

I am looking at buying a 98 yz400f for around 1400. Is this a good bike and is it worth that amount has a powercore fmf exhaust, helmet, goggles. Anything I should look for and any big issues. Thanks alot.

I have owned my 98 since new. I have thrashed it for over 10 years with verry little problems. I feel the early Yamaha 400 and 426's were overbuilt so that there reputation would never suffer. $1400 sounds about right but it doesn't hurt to negociate if possible. Good luck

I just gave $1000 for a 98, that needed a little carb work and clutch cable. So 1400 aint too bad.

This thread gives me a good idea of where to price my '99 400F.

FWIW I've owned my bike since new in '99, it's been one of the most reliable bikes ever. Can't go wrong with their durability.

Needed it's 1st valve adjustment last year, and they were just barely out of spec!!! (although it's got very low hours for a '99, maybe 125 - 135)

i paid 1400 for mine about 4 or 5 months ago. It was bone stock other then a twin air filter. I love it! jsut put a white bros r4 exhaust and its nice. Great bike for the money.

I just bought a 99 yz 400f for $800.00:moon: No it is not stolen and it has no problems. The guy originally had it for $1,500.:worthy:

probly one of the most reliable bikes I have ever had. do normal maintenance,and she will give you know worries. my only problem when I bought it I had trouble getting the starting proceedure down. but once you get it it's easy. I can start it with my slippers on now!. If you ride trails the 10oz flywheel wieght does wonders to smooth out the power and I never stall it anymore:thumbsup: I've had this bike for 3 yrs now and can not ever see me getting rid of it,I love it!:worthy:

Thanks for your replies and I think it has a fmf powercore pipe any other mods you suggest for it i'll mostly be trail riding.

zipty fuel screw,handguards and boyson quickshot. :worthy:
