That seems a tad high, but reasonable

$200 for chain and sprockets (replace them with a 520 setup) it is easy to do yourself

Miles are kinda high (if you take care of it though, it will give you A LOT more miles)

How bad are the scratches?

How are the tires?

with 14000 miles i'd not recomment buying it unless it is a 2003+; 99-02 i believe had tranmission problems (or something to do with it) around 10k miles so plan on spending money to fix it.

the scratches depending on how bad they are should be a big deal if it is your first bike you can probably plan on putting some on the first 6 months or so. just make sure the alignment and stuff has been checked and ask him how it went down (if it did).

i think over all $5k is good depending on the damage. i'd say $6k and subtract cost of repair and replacements. which should come out around $5k.

this is all assuming it is a 2003 though.

Thanks for the reply guys. The guy said the tires were changed at
around 7000 Miles. (when he bought it from the 1st owner)

There are some visible scratch lines but they are not bad.

Yes this is my 1st Bike.

milage is on the highside along with the asking price, $5000. i say look for another one. as for me i seen '03 selling for $6000 with 5000 miles. i wouldnt want to take a chance with a bike with high milage. this is just my opinion though.
