Might wanna lower your price a little, i've seen '04's go for 5k with more aftermarket stuff then you've listed. Also NADA show's them valued from $4480 up to $5600 for mint. Just my :2cents:

Then how did the peg break. Plus the Ninja decal is missing on the center plastic. No big deal just don't try to pass it off as mint, honesty will get you further around here.

Meh, it is low mile. It does have new tires. The plastics look good from the single pic. The broken peg does make me wonder though. If it's been on it's side, why replace all the plastics, barends, levers, etc, all the more expensive stuff, then neglect the peg? Why does the side panel not have a ninja sticker on it. Could have been removed for looks, could be a replacement panel (plastics and decals are separate part numbers from kawi). The tail looks right though, so if it was down, it wasn't much of an accident.

In all reality. A good explanation of the missing decal and peg would go a long way. As well as comprehensive pictures of the entire bike, supporting your story of the questionable items.

edit: the reason you couldn't post it in the fs section is you have too few posts, and probably haven't been a member long enough. It's one measure to keep spam down and keep people from joining only to sell their shit and leave.

#1-I have bought numerous oem plastics from Kawi, none of which came w/ decals.
#2- Members here have sold 1st gens w/ more goodies for less money, but i respect your asking price( I paid $5900 for my '05 w/ the same mileage)

:+1:

Not to rule out that someone took off the decal and you traded rearsets, ot that your bike is worth 6k, but you could have alleviated these questions if you had been forthright about them in the original post. Simply stating that you bought the bike without the ninja decals on it, you prefer the look. The footpeg is broken because when you bought it, the bike had aftermarket rearsets that you traded off because you need cash. Your bike is worth 6k because it's one of the few first gens that has never been down, is a rare color, low miles, and has some basic goodies.

Just saying. There will always be bikes cheaper, to say they're all junk is wrong. Some people are just hurting more than others, or are too lazy to try and get decent coin out of their machines. Personally, I think $6k is a fair starting point, but keep in mind retail book on the 04 zx10 is only like $5600 or something now. It's ridiculously low, but that's what all banks and buyers are going to go off of for value. I wouldn't go to $5k, but $5500 seems realistic.

KBB has it for $6565 retail, $4525 trade in.

$6000 is a fair price, but I see LOTS of literbikes just sitting on craigslist for very fair prices. Nobody's buying them right now with the economy sucking and everyone fearing for their jobs.

It's a tough market to sell in, that's for sure!

Wow, that's an amazing discrepancy between NADA and kbb. Nada is $5600 average retail, had to check my book. Chubbs you're right. I saw an 04 on my local cl for $4500 that's in decent condition (not as nice as the op's), and it's been on there for weeks. It's tough, but that's why I'm keeping mine.

That's a hell of a sales pitch you got there....good luck with the sale, you'll need it.


For reference, I bought my '06 about 6 months ago for $5k and it was MINT. Not a scratch on it...about 9000 miles. No broken pegs either:crackup:

I agree, KBB is high, I just posted the numbers for reference. With the market the way it is, I wouldn't pay much more than the trade in value for a bike. There are just too many bargains right now.

$6k may be "fair" but I wouldn't pay that. Just my opinion. Bring on the fart jokes and 3rd grader insults:rolleyes:
