Ok I have wanted a dirt bike for ever and I found an 03 rm250 and I found the kelly blue book is $1,245 and the guy is asking $1,300... I can only really pay around $1,000 dollars for it... how do you think I could get him down? It also has a blown engine and needs a $140 part... so obviously used alot.
you obviously dont know 2 strokes to well, the engine will break down about once per year which means it needs a new top end, not a big deal, and you can say i can give you 900 for it and when he says no say hey listen, i will give you all the money i have witch is 1000 for a bike with a broke engine that im gonna have to put time and money into, thats litteraly all the money i have right now.
have grown up around bikes, i have a cr125 with 144 big bore kit, uncle has a aprillia and a sv650 and a cr250, grandpa has a honda v65 magna, im the one people who know me call when they need engine help
