Trade ZX6 for Gixxer?

Hopefully I don't get banned just for considering this I am trying to sell my stunt bike since it's pretty boring to me these days. I am asking for 3800-4000 for it. I have had a few nibbles but nobody head over heels ready to buy it. I got a text from a guy today with an 04 Gixxer 600, 11k miles, Yosh Pipe, Power Commander, and integrated taillight... pretty standard. It does have some scrapes on both sides, but he claims it is in overall pretty good condition. Via text we've somewhat settled on a straight trade plus $300-500 on his end. My main concern is that the bike isn't worth what I'm asking for my stunter... but on the other hand it will probably be significantly easier to sell (which is most likely what I would do). The stunter is an 03 636, great shape for a stunt bike, probably about $1500-2000 in stunt parts on it.

Just looking for everyone's thoughts and opinions.

That was my thought... I will probably ride it around some, and may use it for my upcoming trackday, but the ultimate goal is just to sell it. I guess we shall see how overall trashed it is.

yes, whatever rdlyn said, the gsxr 600 is well worth 4-5k in the spring time! There is no respect in the market for Kawasaki's....let alone a 636...that's why I'll wait until June of 2011 to get a gen 4 for 6k :crosses fingers:

Any where you go, that suzuki will sell! Mark up on an 04 is between 3-5 depending on location, so if it needs a little work not bad! I'd say do it!

Got pictures of the 636? You ever post up on www.stuntlife.com? Could be a hit on there, guys act pretty broke on there but I'm sure you'll find more interest in a stuntbike on an actual stunt forum. That's if you don't want to go the Zuk route.

The 04-05 gsxr 600 is a great machine, do it if that's the kind of bike you want. Those sell for around $6000 where I live.
