Default Found a 2006 Yz450f for $500

     

Hey guys I found a 2006 YZ450F for $500 but the motor is locked up. I'm thinking about offering the kid $400. Is it worth the buy?
Thank you

If you're willing to part it out if the cases are cracked, then yes.

Yeah I was thinking sell the carburetor, suspension, and frame of the bike if the case is cracked. Do you know how much it would cost to rebuild if I did the rebuild myself?

Just selling the carb and suspension will probably make you the $400 back. So, it's a pretty safe bet if you're willing to part out. As far as rebuilding, it depends to what level you want to do it and what is wrong with it. Best case scenario you just need a top and bottom end rebuild which would set you back about $500. Worst case scenario, you need a set of cases (usually around $400-$500, check eBay), a cylinder ($100 used to $250 new), a head or a rebuild of the head you've got (not sure on the cost here), and the top and bottom end... I'd expect about a $1500 total. Take the head and cylinder off. That'll give you a clear idea of what you're in for and need to do it whether rebuilding or parting out.
