It's about money really... a CA plated bike can be very expensive... especially if it's factory plated... especially if you want a newer model. And if you are a 2-smoke lubber forget it.

It's a 2011 350SXF converted for mostly mountain goat use... Bike lightly used about $4K... new $6k. I know 350EXCs on the road that spilt $12k plus of blood.
