Your math doesn't match the prices here. A new 08 went for $9099 MSRP. Now the new 2013 goes for $11599 MSRP.
Why pay 8k for a 4 year old bike that was 9k to begin with?
Like some others were saying, the servicing will alone cost a few hundred, by now the tires may be not properly balanced or lopsided since it has sat in the exact same position for 4 or almost 5 years.
You would need to siphon out all fuel from fuel tank. Put seafoam and new fuel in. Oil change minimum, probably have to lube chain.
Properly inspect tires for worn areas or lumps.
Will most definitely will have a dead battery, you would probably have to replace it.
The absolute only way i would pay even close to 8k would be if they did all these things and included all taxes and fees associated.
But that will not happen so run away, run far away...
