Here's the deal... I'm a first time atv buyer and have been studying hard all aspects of buying and evaluating these things for a used purchase. Now after months of looking everywhere I finally found a local private seller through word of mouth that may be offering a hell of a deal. Story is...
Guy's got a 2012 Yamaha Griz 550 w/ EPS with 2900 miles and 250 hours on it and hes asking $4900. Says he got it from NPA? in Cincinnati for $4400 and paid $125 to ship it. After new tires, brakes and oil he says he's got $5000 into it coming from a dealer-only wholesale auction. I've only got $4500 to spend and really stressed that and he says he'll sell it to me if the guy coming on Friday doesn't pay the full $4900 price he's asking.
So yeah fairly excited about the prospects here. This one blue books for something like $5500-$5800 retail.
But I'm still a little too wet behind the ears still to be confident about evaluating these things used so I'm cramming as much info as I can before I go take a look at it. So don't want to get burned.
So couple questions...
1- I've seen some with more and less miles than the 2900 this one has. But have been taught it's not so much the mileage as how they were put on. Anyone have insight about this specific model with almost 3000 miles and 250 hours on it?
2- Are there any special problems the 2012 550 EPS Griz has that I should be looking out for?

Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife.
Tearfully, she explained, 'It's the druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone.
I had to call multiple times before he would even answer the phone.'
Immediately, the husband drove down town to confront the druggist and demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a word or two, the druggist told him, 'Now, just a minute, listen to my side of it.
This morning, the alarm failed to go off, so I was late getting up.
I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car,
just to realize that I'd locked the house with both house and car keys inside and had to break a window to get my keys.
Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket.
Later, when I was about three blocks from the store, I had a flat tire.
When I finally got to the store, a bunch of people were waiting for me to open up.
I got the store opened and started waiting on these people.'
'All the time, the darn phone was ringing off the hook.'
'Then, I had to break a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change, and they spilled all over the floor.
I had to get down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels, and the phone was still ringing.
When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer,
which made me stagger back against a showcase with a bunch of perfume bottles on it.
Half of them hit the floor and broke.'
'Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up,
and I finally got back to answer it.
It was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer.
And believe me mister, as God is my witness, all I did was tell her.
No one wanted to room with Bob, because he snored so badly.They decided it wasn't fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.
Admin slept with Bob and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot.They said, "Man, what happened to you?"He said, "Bob snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night."
The next night it was a different Stoopidbot1's turn. In the morning, same thing--hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot.They said, "Man, what happened to you? You look awful!" He said, 'Man, that Bob shakes the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night."
The third night was BuckBilly's turn. Buckbilly was a tanned, older cowboy; a man's man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. "Good morning!" he said. They couldn't believe it. They said, "Man, what happened?" He said, "Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Bob into bed, patted him on the butt, and kissed him good night..
Bob sat up and watched me all night."
