I looked at a '99 kdx 200 yesterday and was impressed by its overall condition. Original tires and plastic look good, bearings are tight--everything looks clean and according to the owner (who seems credible) she has been gentle on it. I looked at it while she was at work so I haven't ridden it yet. Should I test compression or will I be able to tell by riding it? Anything I may have missed? She was asking $2000 but went down to $1700--seems like a good deal to me but I don't want to get too excited and miss something. Let me know what you think--thanks, Yater

Wow for 1700.00 I would jump right on it, after you test ride it and check it over one more time. Used bikes seem to be getting cheaper by the day. Is the bike all stock? At that price if you don't grab it quick it will be gone.
