That's the next step. Swapping all the hot shit off it for stock stuff, pocketing an extra few grand from that stuff, and sell the bike for a grand less. Or better yet, sell the aftermarket stuff to the buyer of the bike when it sells.

That is a beautiful bike. Maybe your marketing it to the wrong crowd. Instead of listing all the performance goodies maybe you should mention how sweet the potential buyer would look riding it from stop light to stop light with his aviators, shorts, and sleeveless shirt. Bet that gets it sold.

*no offence to any R6 riders out there, please don't beat me for playing the stereotype card.

The fork tubes have already been slid up to compensate. It's all good.

Sportbikers are cheap mofo's!

Nada lists around $2500 there are about $1500 bucks worth of upgrades, but even at that you never get that upgrade cost back when you sell it.

actually that bike is really setup well and tastefully but the smoked windscreen is a deal breaker. I'll have to go find one similar that comes with a clear windscreen.

NADA can suck a dick. They have little relevance to what a bike is ACTUALLY selling for. Market value is always king. But if you are referring to the 7 grand worth of extras, yeah it might add a few dollars. I think your first sentence is spot on though.

I have the bike you're looking for and it has a clear windscreen. On sale now for only $5,199, CLSB limited time offer. Don't miss out on your chance on this rare custom R6.

how about I buy your YZ125 for $1,500 and you buy my KX250 for $5000 and you can keep the $1,500 and the YZ125. That's a great deal!

Hey man, I gots no beef, just trying to rationalize why no-one has jumped on the rare opportunity to own that bike!
