Take all of these items off the bike. Try to put all stock item back on the bike. These extra items do not, what-so-ever add value to a motorcycle. If anything, they decrease the value. Sell them seperatly.

If you buy and sell bikes all the time, why are you asking what your bike is worth?

Maybe in your neck of the words there's no one with enough cash to purchase a bike, but here in arkansas I know what I could get out of the bike
Please see comment above.

I know what the aftermarket parts are worth. 4k is a reasonable amount to pay for a k6 in stock trim, with a few aftermarket touches that wouldn't be worth removing(upgraded brake lines and filter) all the other stuff goes on ebay or forums
Once again... Please see comment above.

Also, aftermarket parts. Rear-sets, power commander, Vortex levers, hotbodies (complete garbage) does increases the value by .10 cents of every dollar you spent on these items. So, bascially. It adds nothing to the value and decreases the your market share. If anyone believes these items, or really any aftermarket item adds value to a motorcycle. The seller and the buyer are both morons...

Scorpion slipon 250

Extra fairing stay 75 each
Ect ect ect.
Meh, your prices are to bad. Like hell you'll get $400 for hotbodies that have had a lowside. I wouldn't even buy brand new hotbodies for $400. That's just a scam.

Exhaust - I'd give you $100 for it. Why pay $250 when I can get a brand new one for $100 more?

But hey... On SVrider people buy Penske double clickers for $650 shipped. And a lot of the times they need a rebuild. Which costs around $100. So you just spent $750 on a used shock, but guess what. That's the same price as a BRAND NEW, NEVER BEEN ON A BIKE! JUST BUILT AT THE FACTORY TO MY FRONT DOOR price...

Really shocks me how dumb people are on that forum, but oh well.


Oh, $400 is the max you should pay for any double-click penske shock. If it needs a rebuild, $350. That includes shipping.

5500 after its made stock and aftermarkets are sold out is my estimate still.

now that you are done ranting about what he is looking to get out of his bike, check the date he made the thread.

Before making ignorant comments like this, go to ebay and search for "completed listings" you will see those are the current market prices for the above items. Your personal opinion on hotbodies is irrelevant to the market price.

Generally speaking vehicles depreciate around 20-25% a year from new off the remaining balance. Some extra bling can add a bit to the value, but I would rather buy a used bike from an old retired guy (like me lol) who carefully maintains his bike (and wants to keep his body in one piece) than a young squid who visits race-tracks and does stoppies and wheelies on every ride. When buying used it is the owner that scares me not the bike. So if you are a young guy you'd better look like a college preppie when someone comes to look at your bike.
