I used to work for a powersports dealer. We would never, ever sell a motorcycle with a bad, dangerous tire. That alone would have me thinking twice about dealing with them.
Motorcycle prices by type vary by region. Also used bike listings vary just about as widely; in fact, NADA has the 2013 KLR650 retailing at $5085 and KBB has it retailing at $4390. In my region (west central Florida) I have no 2013s in CL and 1 in Cycle Trader (cool yellow one) for $3999 (but it has 35K miles). However, I'm seeing several very low mileage dealer 2015s from $4,999 to $5,399 (asking). Right in your price range.
Personally, while I think you could do better price-wise, I think...for that price...you might be better off doing yourself better bike-wise. After buying my 2016 KLR650 I commented how much better the suspension and seat was than what I'd read about the model and expected. I was informed by guys on this forum that Kawasaki greatly improved those two features with the 2014.5 model KLR650. If you've got between $5000 and $5500 to spend I'd say go look for a 2014.5+ model with the improvements. However, I go back to my initial comment, prices may be very different than those in my area.
