Advice needed

Hello all.
I’ve just joined, I’m looking to buy my first ltz 400 had other quads in the past I’m in the U.K.
A nice 2005 has come up for sale at £2750. I’m not familiar with the price range or any faults or concerns to consider when buying one of these quads. I’ve done my research and it seems the 06 models and newer are the better choice. If anyone could give me some advice that would be much appreciated.
Jeff

Thank you, are there any years in particular you’d stay away from ? Or as long as the advice is followed year isn’t a problem ?

Mainly avoid 03-04 models. 05 and up have stronger frames and better shocks.
