Default Your thoughts on a used Warrior needing work.

I checked out a 2004 Warrior today that has been garaged and sitting for a long time. The bike only has 4500 miles on it. It did fire up and sounded pretty good but that was sitting with no load on it.

It was packed in tight in a garage and not that easy to see but from what I could see of it, it needs at a minimum the following....

Needs tires first off. They are shot.
Front fork seals are shot.
Front brakes are shot. (Soaked with fork oil.)
Needs a battery.
Needs a major cleaning and polishing.

It does have a Vance and Hines exhaust. It does have a sissy bar. Looks like aftermarket bars on it too. Its not beat up or scratched up.

Guy is asking $2600 but sounds like he will come down in price. I know other things are going to pop up on this bike that are going to need repaired and I do not mind fixing a bike. But I am not really familiar with a Warrior so I thought I may ask you guys that are.

What do you guys think of this bike? Worth going after or not?

It's worth it.
Hit him at 2k and see what happens....

Battery is not alot..
Tires will probably be the more $$ .
This bikes are bulletproof...

Go for it

Tires battery oil spark plugs filters maybe bulbs fuses and battery / starter cables and control cables and brake fluid and middle drive oil and brake kits and a belt and . . . ahh man this is gonna be awesome taking a garaged beast back to being a Beast!!

You might need to offer $2k in order to have the $1k cash for parts and repairs but you can do it mostly all in your garage over winter and roll it out in spring.

Not a great picture but best I have of at the moment. $2000 or less is kind of what I was thinking too. I know it will have some hidden issues, machines that have sat like this always do.
So you guys think its worth it.

I was originally wanting something to ride this fall because thats when my wife and I like to ride the most. But I could roll it up into the livingroom and work on it over the winter. Next to the fireplace is nicer than my garage!

How is the rear shock on these bikes? Think Im going to have to rebuild it due to age and sitting?

The rear shock is well built. No worries about sitting.

From what you posted it's worth a test ride and my guess is it's worth buying.
