No personal experience...just word of mouth and what I've read.
Thumper, no known problems, no huge following....I guess for a really good price I'd try one. I believe it's pretty tall, if that matters.
Not a bad machine, I'd not kick one out of the garage for leaking oil.
That is a few miles for a thumper, and unless it has maintenance records, well, I dunno, my rule of thumb is a buck a cc - if it is in exceptional condition, does not smoke or make any strange noises, I go a grand easy -
If you need the factory owners or service manual, let me know.
That applies for any Yamaha, btw......
Better have a good internet connection, some of those files are pretty big.
HA that is cheap on my side of the world for a clean one (low kms (miles too). Easy get $5k plus for a tidy XR500 here. They are getting a bit collectible.
The XT and XR were the big boys dirt bikes - great rides and a real do-it all 80's bike. Man I have good memories of pulling monos on a friends. Simple engines and easy to work on. No real issues if well serviced.
