i wouldn't consider giving 3K for a bike with a destroyed engine. 2k would be alright and you could probably make that back parting it out, but 3k is a stretch.

so should i start my seductive offerings at say 1.5?

also i think this would be a nice bike to have, i want a new sportbike (as opposed to my fiberglass chopped up bodied 99 f4) so i am buying it with the intention of owning

2k and a few extras that she could easily offer :banana j/k Broken engine, I guess the question is how bad the engine is, as some engines if run without oil can be rebuilt but I guess it depends on how bad it seized up and how bad the internals got messed up. $3k may be pushing it, $2k sounds reasonable, so maybe make your cutoff $2500???

hmmm im gonna speak with her 2night, she said it starts but the engine is ruined, she has it at a dealer right now, she claims 2000 to fix it. im a mechanic so ill tell her i can get a brand new kawasaki engine for 1800 but the price to install it will be considerate (my time is expensive because im big pimpin) then after i give her the figures ill tell her i have 1500 cash and work my way up, does that sound good?

Sounds like it would work, always worth a shot.

I've found a few 06 zx6r's for $9k (which is high for a used bike). Cheapest I've found is $6800 w/ 1300 miles.

If the cost to repair is $2k then I'd say around $4k is reasonable for this bike (of course we don't know anything else about it like - mileage, maint. etc.).

So if you offer $2k-3k and she accepts I think you're getting a very good deal.
