I guess the California market can be different from the rest of the country, but I'd be surprised if you get anywhere near $6,500 for an RC with 40,000 miles on it, and the mods actually detract from the value, not add to it, just my opinion. You'd prob do better to put it back to stock, as much as you reasonably can, get hopefully $4000 to maybe $4500 for the stock bike, and sell all the goodies separately.

Example, I don't foresee anybody paying extra for an RC with a steering damper ... but sold separately, somebody will buy that sucker.

Same opinion for most or all of your aftermarket parts.

I'd even sell the wheels separately from the tires. You might get $100 (maybe $150?) for the tires sold separately, but I doubt the guy who wants the wheels will wanna pay much extra for them with tires.

Your rims, calipers, rotors, rearsets, Sato cans, steering damper, DHC undertail, seat, Speedo Healer and Gilles (and maybe tires, K&Ns and levers) all have value sold separately, that I don't think you're gonna get if sold already on the bike.

You'd probably do pretty well this way, but it will take some time and effort of course.

The way it sits, I'd guess maybe $4000, to maybe $5000 if you can find just the right guy who wants all your aftermarket parts and is willing to pay a little extra for them.

No offense intended, and Good luck with your sale, either way!

i agree with Extrapolator's evaluation. I have had a bunch of these bikes, people will pay more for the "top-of-the-line" mods (carbon wheels, ohlins R&T forks, HRC goods etc) but smalls like damper, gilles, rearsets etc wont really add value to the bike as a whole its only the large stuff.

if your happy with 4-5000 sell as is.

if not, part it (if you have stock stuff) thats the only way that bike sees 6500, it could have MAYBE happened if it was a 05/06 black for some reason people will pay more for that even if they are a bit ragged out?

also at 40k miles, service history and documentation will be key. I have no problem buying a slightly higher mileage bike but the service records need to be impeccable to say the least.

I will say this bike sells for 4000-4750 in the california market, perhaps a bit more to the right buyer.

thank you for your input. I actually do have all service records from a very reputable shop here in Southern California. But maybe you'll have some stock rims you'd like to sell me lol
