Anybody have one? About to pull the trigger on one that's been garaged for 2 years. Guy wants $3400 and it seems to be in really good shape. Anything to look for in this year and model? I was looking at a leftover 18' RMZ 250 for $5500 otd.

Those bikes have some issue with the cam chain tensioner, and 4CS fork is not good (in stock form) for moto or aggressive riding, but if it's low hours, it's a really solid bike. Tensioner is a cheap fix. Forks only get bad when you push them. The most you would do is put a set of SSS cartridges in them, at about $800.
Piston rings and valves last a looong time compared to everyone else.
I had a 2014 350SXF for 2 years, 200hrs and rode the hell out of it.
For $3,400 in the NE winter, it would want to be really clean and low hours / near new.
