FWIW: New bearing Kits for the complete rear linkage assembly is about $100. Not as big a deal as say a transmission repair, top end, fork sliders, or even cost as much a trashed seat/air box assembly. $300 new! .Fairly straight forward to fix if have a press or vise. Alittle play is common and no big deal - just a grease job usually. Now if its been completely neglected and things like the shock bolts are allowed to loosen up, then over time, the frame can be damaged.

If you are looking for a modern bike there are 2 types of used ones out there.
Like new. The seller never got into trails.
Well used. The seller is a serious trials rider and wants a fresh bike.
The like new ones will not reallty need any "checklist". While a well used one will be very hard for a new rider to judge if the bike is worth having.
If you can spend $3,500 to $4,000 you can get a nice newer. ready to ride bike.
Yesterday I scored a "like new" 06 Rev3 for much less than $3,500. Took me a full year to find this deal. At the price I paid and the near new look of the bike, I did not check a single thing on the bike. I handed him the $$ with a smile.
I may sell my 96 Techno in a few weeks ... It's like new.
06 950 Adventure
96 Beta Techno
07 450 EXC
