10 reasons why you should buy this dirt bike from me rather than one from a dealer:

1. You will know who the former owner(s) are when buying from a private party, definitely not a dealer! This bike has an hour meter and the reciept from when I bought it, when did you last see a used dirt bike with an hour meter and verification of the readings on it from dated service records, never from a dealer!!! I like dealers, they are nice folks, but the used dirt bike attitude is "don't ask and don't tell" and I would never put my son or daughter on a used dirt bike unless I met the former owner!

2. The bike at the dealer could have been raced, wrecked, abused, stolen, destroyed & rebuilt, had someone injured on it, you have no idea whatsoever!!!!!

3. A dealer normally has no warranty and possibly a 30-day one, maybe. This bike has 12 months left of a warranty that covers all the main powertrain items!

4. I have written verification of the fact that a factory trained & 25+ year multi-line dealer service tech / manager / owner just serviced from A-Z including a compression test, leak down test, valve adjustment, engine, transmission, and air cleaner oil changes, new oil filter, new OEM brakes front & rear, and a safety inspection.

5. I have a vested interest in your being happy and satisfied with buying a great bike because I might just see you nest weekend at a track, in the desert, or another riding area since I have written a dirt bike every weekend for 25 years.

6. I am a 64-year old "vet" rider that takes care of my equipment, never over rev the engine and I absolutely do not believe in crashing!!

7. Full-disclosure is the key and with this bike, you will meet me, see my records, see my garage and the way I live and you will see and know what your are getting, especially all my service records. At a dealer you are blying blind!!!!

8. Note the photos provided so that you can do a full inspection before you even drive out to see the bike, all in respect for your time.

9. Note that the price is in line and not over priced just because I took care of this machine!

10. I am selling this bike because i replaced it with another brand new 2014 CRF450R and you might ask, why the same kind? I think this is a fantastic bike! The only reason I bought a new one is because I like to ride new or almost new bikes due to the huge jumps at tracks so that I have more confidence. I am not selling because there is something wrong with it as is often the case at a dealer! Also, I have all the maintenance records, log sheet and 1 year remaining on drive-train warranty. ****BEST OF ALL, I JUST HAD THE COMPRESSION & LEAK DOWN TESTS DONE SO YOU HAVE SOLID PROOF OF THE QUALITY, NOT JUST MY WORD. DEALERS DON'T EVEN DO THAT!!!! I AM SHOCKED HOW MUCH BLIND FAITH MOST DEALERS AND REGULAR PRIVATE SELLERS EXPECT YOU TO HAVE!!!!!!

 

A hour meter so you have proof of the actual hours. I have service records that confirm the data on it. (75 hours). There is no requirement to have this.

Fork oil and seals recently replaced as normal maintenance, they weren't leaking.

I used only the best OEM oils for the engine and transmission.

Just had new OEM Honda brakes put in the front and rear.

Registration paid thru mid 2016

Note the incredibly clean condition of the engine. The mufflers are brand new OEM from my new bike since i polished the older ones and put them on the new bike. The bike is clean like this after I detail it following every ride.

Valves just adjusted, new spark plug, and new mufflers.

These are the original grips I put on 75 hours ago when new (Marty Smith Re-Grips) and note, they are undamaged because I don't believe in crashing and this bike has never been crashed! I don't recall even tipping over in a turn, maybe once at 3 mph come to think of it.

A close up for you. Note that these are the original plastics! Often, dirt bikes are crashed so much that these are the first to get beat up!

Another close up for you.
You can assume the remaining 12 months on the power train warranty by paying a $40 fee to the warranty co. THIS IS VALID ONLY IF THE BIKE IS NOT RACED (THEY VERIFY USING GOOGLE) AND IF IT HAS GREAT SERVICE RECORDS, A HOUR METER, AND IS IN GREAT CONDITION WHEN YOU PUT IN A CLAIM. I HAVE HAD 2 PRIOR CLAIMS ON PRIOR BIKES AND THIS CO. IS GOOD BUT IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN THIS BIKE AS WELL AS ME TO BE ABLE TO USE THIS.

Air cleaner freshly replaced and oiled.

Manual included.

Tires are very good but not new since I don't know what type of tires you prefer.

Sprockets are excellent and original. The $170 DID Enduro o-ring chain with rivet, not clip is so strong, it lasts usually 100 hours and adjustments are every 40 hours or so.
