    Where? I can't find a deal like that anywhere. I'm looking in the north jersey/new york area and this seems like the best deal I've found.

    Damn, that's the first bad thing I've ever heard about the XR series bikes. When I sold my old 350, it was gone the day I listed it. The guy didn't want a 400 and a 250 was too small. Sorry OP, this is the first negative thing I've heard about these bikes. The 350 is a good size bike in my opinion. It's powerful but not enough to kill you off road. They hold the road well as long as you don't expect it to be comfortable at highway speeds. My old 350 was good up to about 55 - 60mph, it could hold 65 - 70 for short bursts to pass someone or something.

    Here in cali bikes go dirt cheap, i wanted to get rid of my 02 cr250 to make some space and i let it go for 1300, although it needed 300 in paperwork

    yea i agree

    if it was a few years ago then maybe not, but now adays 2 strokes really arent worth anything, i let my 2001 ktm 250 2 stroke go for 11000 and that was like 3 years ago. its crazy how all of a sudden the 2 strokes dropped big time in wat there worth

    weird..haha

    well at least i think 1800 is alot of money for an 01, when you can get a 250f or 450f like 06 07 all day for under 3k.

    hello.

    The XR hondas cannot be killed. they are like cockroaches nothing can fuck those bikes up. Althought I am not personally familiar with the 350, I know alot about the 400s and 250s.

    Its a solid bike, but not worth 1000 bucks. I would say 7-800 bucks would be fair. Also theres this stuff called SG1, it can make any bike look brand new no matter how old so dont be decieved if it just "looks clean". if it has a magnetic drain plug(all bikes should IMO) check it and look for long strands of metal.

    Happy buying

    agreed, also if they just changed the graphics or/and plastics it makes the bike look brand new

    That's the only thing I am a little nervous about with this thing, looks almost TOO clean for what it is, might have just put lipstick on a pig. I'm going to see it later this afternoon, hopefully it is legit

    check the frame out, wheels, bars, and forks make sure everything is straight. and start it up see how many kicks it takes to start, and it shouldnt be warmed up already, if it is then he started it right before u got there

    That was the first dirt bike I ever purchased new. I gave it to my dirt bikeless friend about 5 years ago. The engine was only rebuilt once in about 2000 or so. It is running perfectly to this day. Granted, I did have it bored out to near a 400. It is a great trail/plonk around bike and like they say, change they oil and plugs every year if it needs it or not. A thousand would be high though, but it does look in great condition.

    Daudio is on crack. I know other people who have owned that model as well. Never, ever an overheating problem. My riding was waaay Nor Cal and Desert So Cal.

    If you can get a great price on it, do so. Or let me buy it.

    He contradicts himself sorta by first not knowing a lot about dirtbikes, then at the bottom of the page post claiming that 350's suck it.

    Ooopss... Just looked again. Sorry I accused you of being on crack Daudio. I didn't actually notice you were quoting t4daddy. t4daddy is the one on crack.

    That appears to be an '85 by the way- It has a front disc brake. I don't believe the '83 or '84 did. It also DOES HAVE a better cooling system/oiling system and single carb which is waay easier to tune/adjust than the previous dual carb setup. The digital "Enduro Computer" appears to be gone/missing though. That kinda sucks. That worked really good for speedo, timekeeping, hours, milage, etc.
