Things to look for when buying a used YZ?

I'm going to look at a '05 YZ250 in the next few days, and I was wondering if there are any known issues that I should watch for? This particular bike has Factory Connection forks (and maybe shock) on it. The owner claims the title can be traced back to pro freestyle rider Nate Adams.

Any idea what it would be worth in decent condition? I've seen other '05 YZ and CR250s listed as low as $1900 in the area which don't look too badly beaten.

IMO, free style bikes have been hammered as far as suspension and the frame goes it's probably clapped out where the aluminum frame no longer flexes the way it was designed (from all the hard landings), unless you can somehow document it's a low hour bike... but even then?
