I did some searches for this model & didn't come up with what I was looking for. http://www.piedmont-motorsports.com/pre_owned_detail.asp?sid=09862024X11K14K2008J10I29I49JPMQ3114R0&veh=1023108 Virtually dent free but it looks as though the previous owner stored it outside exposed to the elements. (The picture lies.) The stealership has reduced the price to $1399.00 & says it runs good. My pal is no stranger to dirtbikes but switched to a quad 10 years ago. (CR250R got his knee.) He's getting the itch for a bike again but wants something reliable & inexpensive, so this is what he's eye-balling right now since it's local. I've always heard that certain types of Kawi's were nearly bullet-proof with low maintenance, but I'm an XR man with little advice for him with regards to this model. I'm guessing he's about 5'10 and around 230 lbs. Suspension lacking? Any advice about what to look for before making an offer? How good/reliable is this model for singletrack VA woods? Cheap mods available? Is the price right? He & I are both around 40 and sporting bad knees. He's looking for reliable, fun & trail friendly... not a racer. Any insight is appreciated.
