Sorry, you don't have 600 bucks worth of accessories:

http://www.kbb.com/motorcycles/kawas...edretailvalue/


I sold my 2002, seven years ago, for 3,200. Progressive shocks, luggage rack, Plexistar windscreen, drivers and passenger floorboards, custom passenger backrest, custom dash with clock and voltmeter, progressive fork springs, And AGM battery with charger. 11,000 miles.


But hey, there's one born every minute right?

No, but I have around $350.00 in accessories and another $670.00 in new tires, Glass matt battery, and a good used final drive. I either get 3 g's or I keep it. I'm in no rush to sell it. And you'r right, there is always someone willing to pay your price.

$3k might be a little high, but I'm sure you'll sell it... maybe next spring. Good luck.

KBB bases it's MC prices on expected vehicle mileage, and a dealer sale - they expect a 2002 to have 38,500 miles if my calculations are correct. Honestly, IMO, your price is probably fair, but a dealer may also throw in a 2 or 3 month warranty. I didn't expect to get $1400 (full asking price) for my old '86 Nighthawk 450 (24,000 mi) last year but it wasn't on Craig's list for 2 weeks when the right guy came along. You should think about taking $2800, but if you are firm on $3000, you should ask $3200. I think just about everyone expects at least a little wiggle room on a private sale - My buyer being the exception (prolly woulda taken $1200).

I'm down with your logic, but you can't expect a buyer to pay for tires, battery and the final drive. Hell, doesn't everyone here have an AGM battery and a working final drive....?

Sounds to me YOU paid to much for the bike yourself...

I'm selling my 2002 for $2,300.00 and am getting ZERO inquiries right now. I was going to go as low as $2,000.00 if someone offered. I'm sure in the Spring the interest will be more but I didn't want to wait that long.....
