2007 klr 650 Vakue

Hello, new to forum, I'm thinking about buying 2007 KLR 650 has 29K miles for $2100, black and silver very clean, trying to find out about doohickee done or not, new tires, Im in Houston TX, would appreciate klr members advice
Please review description:
Great condition. Just installed lowering links to make it a bit easier to handle for riders under 6'. No dings, dents, nothing broken. Never laid down or wrecked. Street and Highway driven exclusively. Well maintained - oil changes every 1,000mi. Barely 1,500 mi on current tires. Totally reliable. KLR's are known to be bullet-proof and long-running. Water-cooled. Easy to maintain. Bargain price.

At 29K I'd be surprised if the Doohickey has NOT been done, but it'd be high on my list of questions to ask, particularly since most sellers will say in their ad that it's been done as that would be a positive selling point. Also you might want to have someone familiar with KLR Engine noise listen to the bike. A rather common and unfortunately a rather expensive issue is if the previous owner let the oil run low. The result damages the Camshaft Bearing Surfaces and they are integral with the Cylinder Head. This makes the repair rather costly in terms compared to the value of the bike as a whole. The first symptom is noisy valves that sound like they are loose and in need of adjustment. But the KLR engine isn't exactly a quiet engine, even when everything is perfect. If you're not familiar with the sound of a good running KLR650 Engine you might have someone double check this for you. The likelihood that the present owner/seller will let you pull the Valve Cover to check for this is probably fairly remote . . . . but you might ask.
