Hard to say without viewing the bike up close, i looked at a 2008 one of these 8mths ago, 3000klms, new tyres, sprockets, receipts, original plastics with average scratches on, he was asking $6k, i offered $5k, settled on $5.5 then i changed my mind after riding it, think i read your in the isa? maybe bike prices are a bit higher due to location? Either way theirs plenty of good 2nd hand cheap bikes around, i wouldnt pay more than $6.5 and for that it would have to be schmick.


Did you ride it? i really wanted 1 of these, till i rode it, not my cup of tea at all. Good luck.



cheers

It would be cheaper to fly to Brisbane, buy a bike, fly home and have the bike freighted out there.

That's because that bike is in the US and in US dollars :D

Having said that you can get a 300km 2011 WR450 for $9200 - http://www.bikesales.com.au/private/det ... 1-12977670

But yes, if you want to stretch it to a new bike then you don't even have to come here. You just ring the dealer, send the money and get them to freight it out.

If you buy 2nd hand you could probably get someone on the forum in the area to check the bike out for you before you fly out for a look.

Yea i bought a bike over the net sight unseen just the photos he had, never again learnt my lession. Got it frieghted up from Brissy, picked it up and didn't look like what i seen in the photo's angry4 The rear shock was leaking and needing to be rebuilt, found the sub frame arm was snapped in half. I did ask 5 time's is there anything wrong with it? but should of know you can't trust everyone.
