Value of 1989 XT350?

As you might can tell, I'm trying to find the value of a 1989 Yamaha XT 350 that I'm thinking about selling. The bike has less than 5,000 miles on it and is in great shape cosmetically. All original, all lights work, etc. It needs new tires/battery and I'm suspecting the need to rebuild/clean the carb (hasn't been ran in a couple of years).

Anyway, what do you think it might be worth?

NADA ranges it $500-$900. Unless there's something special or rare on your XT350, figure somewhere in there. Your market will vary, etc etc.

Thanks! What I have found online is running about $1,000-1,500. Guess it all depends on what the market will allow.

Yup. Put it on CL at the high end, see if you get any takers.

I paid $650 for my unmolested 87 XT350, 6500 miles.
I would say $1000 would be TOP dollar.
Start high and plan on coming down once you get a few offers, if you get no offers your sky high and drop the price.

Keep in mind that 9x KLX650's can be found in the $1200 to $1850 range too.

sh!t. I was thinking of selling my 1989 XT350, just dumped a ton of money into it. wiring harness, battery, 520 chain conversion, bars, grips, throttle sleeve, bark busters, headlight, air horn, rings, seals, oil/air filters, fork seals, tires, clarke gas tank, petcock, 12v charger with usb and lighter plug, speedo cable, tach cable, good heavens the list goes on.

All that to say, I was hoping to step up to a good KLR 650. hoped my little thumper could sell for a fair price.

I just got $800 for a '82 XT 250, crap suspension,

missing blinkers, one spoke, part of the muffler, curled levers, tweaked bars, half decent shape, very reliable, but no cream puff.

A lot depends on the local market, in Colorado anything dual sport goes for a lot.

Step up to a KLR? Well they are tall.
