When you go to look at the bike, make sure you take a multimeter with you. Check battery voltage when running, above 14v is very good, around 13.5v is pretty normal for an unaltered charging system. Definitely read up on the electrical upgrades the DEcosse and Oldndumb have posted. Also check the part cross compatability sticky for more affordable parts than OEM.
I just went over 30k mi with mine and it runs better than ever. I bought it as a total wreck and rebuilt it with parts from eBay.
They reward your work and care with fantastic handle, performance and 40+ mpg on 89 octane. They do like eating stators; I get about 2 years out of one. Ricks Motorsports Electrics is a great source for better than OEM parts.
You can get these pretty cheaply and there are still some in great condition.
A buddy of mine bought a 2000 yellow/ black last summer with 2500 mi for $2000.
