if it helps sell the moto, i'd say do it - i usually put new tires on mine and just eat the cost, or put it on the total (instead of 2,000, 2200 etc) -
what year is yours? you listing it on marketplace, CL, or somewhere else?
It's a 2003, with black/silver 2005 tank (new), chrome sidecovers from whichever year, and the stock metallic maroon fenders.
Had to change her name from Christine Pandora Cheri, to just Calico.
Probably just list it on CL and the local trader paper, don't do FB. Of course here, but local buyers are scarce as members here.

Good suggestion as well. I can show them prices I get tires for and offer to mount them. With zipties!
I'm not a seller that wants back every dime invested, when I settle on a price, my ride time will have been deducted. Besides, I got great deals on almost everything I bought for it. Anyone wanting a turnkey bike with all the good mods already done, might want to check it out. Price should be under $2k for sure.
