Looks pretty nice even at that price, nice mods and the trailer are a bonus.

For reference, I bought my bone stock 08 in good shape with low hours (needed headlight/taillight and bumper/grab bar) for $2300 a couple months ago...

Let's see here...

That exhaust is LOUD.

Tranny gears in the 06+'s are made from glass.

Make sure to have a one way starter clutch on the shelf at all times.

Those front shocks look like they're not made for that quad.  There's barely any shaft travel left with the quad sitting there and the shock body is crazy long.  And it looks like they have 5 springs.  Really?  5?

06+ knuckles handle kind of funky and the only way to find 04-05 knuckles is to buy used.  You also need different arms if you get the older knuckle.

Make sure the tranny oil drain plug isn't stripped.  Lots of guys remove the gear position sensor to drain the oil because the plugs strip so easy.

Check the frame and subframe very well. Cracks are common.

Is this the kick start only fiasco ??

Witnessed this in person a few years back at the GNCC's
The Pro Ranks race into the starting line to claim the best
possible spot. When the flag dropped and the dust settled,
the only one still on the line was this poor guy kicking his
Honda.....LOL

No kick starter as far as I can tell.

One other note from guys that were pushing these bikes
hard in the woods. Had some frame cracking between
the lower a-arm mounts and up rights. Some thought it was
from nerf bars putting too much load on the frame at that
point, and not being able to constantly take the hits.
Honda did replace some frames in the early days of the 450
release.

i had an 05. great bike but there common for needing new valves and guides after 100 or so hours 05 was the last year they were soly kickstart 06+ is electric start. mine was low hours so never had an issue and loved it. the only downfall for me was first gear is way to fast for tight trails. i was clutching way more then i would like. and had no reverse.
