    It probably doesn't have 2000kms... Bike speedo's are sooooo easy to disconnect!!


    I'd offer no more than 5-6k if it's been dropped on both sides. I just got a full R1 race setup (been crashed but repaired, with mint boywork, and spare wheels -a few sets!) for 5k.

    5000 at most.

    youll need new fairings to make it look stock, a repaint usually wont do the trick.
    figure like 1000+ to get new plastic.

    Assuming no damage to the internals, then it's only fairings that you have to replace. That'd probably cost you around $1k. The bike is probably worth about 7k max, so I'd offer 5-6k.

    Now that's a little too much as well.. You should sell your gear seperately, not many people will wear your sizes.

    gear is tough to sell with a bike, as it doesnt really raise the value for 95% of the buyers.

    yes, it is expensive to buy, but if im buying your bike, id offer you 7500 or so, and tell you to keep the gear because ive got a full set of leathers and a joe rocket ballistic jacket, as well as rain gear and gloves and a helmet which has been painted up nicely.

    not to mention size 10 boots dont mix with size 13 feet. :P

    Default The Bike

    I would have to ask if you would be happy with a scratched bike. How much does that matter to you. Almost all bikes get scratches at some time or another. If there are cracks that's a different story. Most plastic covers go for big bucks so replacements are out of the question.
