Potential KLR noob $ Info Please

After 29 years and 250,000 miles of riding, it's time to get dirty (at least as far as roads go, I'm not going to try to go off-roading, I don't bounce very well anymore)

I'm going to look at two used KLRs tomorrow in the Pittsburgh area.

One is a 2004 w/3400 miles.
Asking price is $3,400
NADA value is $2,440

The other is a 2000 w/19,000 miles.
Asking price is $2,500
NADA value is $1,240

I've talked to both sellers and am going to check the bikes out tomorrow.
Both bikes seem to have a pretty normal history. No mods, no doo-hickey replacements, soft bags.
I wonder about the value disparity between what the owners are asking and what NADA gives as average retail.
Anyone have a feel one way or the other on the above examples.

Welcome to the forums. The Nada value looks closer to me, hopeful sellers though. I gave $4500 OTD for my '06 new from a dealer. Dicker with them.
