Greetings Everyone:hello:

Sorry I haven't been on here in a while...between family, work, kids sports, etc. I am learning the reality of life. I was into trackdays the last time I was on here...but now, I am going back to school to knock out a few pre-requisites and then applying for my masters in a totally different line of work:dontknow:

Anyways....I have some bills I am paying off and I am looking to sell my bike:headshake I really don't want to....but I am not going to get to ride it as much....and it was pretty much just a track bike. What I need is some input from some individuals that can help me figure out what to ask for it.

It's an 07 ZX10....around 10K on the odometer, vortex rearsets, power commander, Two Bros. slip-ons/bolt-ons. was laid down once at the track...has a small dent in the tank, does not effect anything. Has frame sliders, swing-arm spools, Pazzo Levers, Tires currently on it are Conti Sport Attacks....I was getting ready to switch to the Race Attacks...but there's no point seeing how I want to sell it. Also has steel braided brake lines and converted the front calipers to the Honda 600RR calipers.

I also have some spare parts, plus the headlight assym. and a few other things.

I will post up pics either this evening or tomorrow. What I would like to get is some input on what I should ask for it. I am figuring $5,000 O.B.O. but I don't know if that's too much. KBB is 6455...but that's retail....

It does have a clear title....I am currenlty working on getting it from PA...then I have to transfer it to a CA title....bike was registered in CA past 2 years....but when I paid it off...the lein release was sent to PA:rolleyes: It is registered still but in CA with a PNO (planned non-operation), because I wasn't putting it back on the road. No Salvage title or anything like that.

Any advice will be appreciated....if you have any questions feel free to ask.

I would first suggest you get the title situation cleared up so if someone does want the bike you will have the title in hand.... As far as the price being that its missing the fairings I would say somewhere in the $3500-4000 range....

what about the extra parts and stuff...I was shooting for about 4000-4500...I think I can get that for it at least. I can advertise it as either a track bike or street-fighter....I still have the headlight assembly and figured with all of the little crap I have for it plus the bike I would let it go for around 4000-4500....start it at 5,000 O.B.O....thanks for your input though 09zx10miami ...I can see that price...hoping not to go that low though...

I would say 3000-3500 tops There are 06-07 going for $5000.00 thats have slip ons same or less miles and have not been laid down but maybe the market is better over there in Cali but over here in MD you would not get near the 4500-5000 your asking. good luck on the sale

I picked up an '08 with 4k miles close to pristine condition for $5000 in Colorado - I see '07's listed in the high 4's - extra parts really don't tend to add much to the price of a bike. My opinion, you're better off selling them aside from the bike sale - I say $3500 to 4000 tops as well

From what I am seeing them go for out here....they are asking for used ones at the dealership $6000...and that's with a few minor upgrades (frame sliders, stickers, etc.)....I am seeing private sales going for around that as well....CA the market price is higher, so I can understand why you folks in MD and CO couldn't get that much. I bought the bike for $9000 out the door back in 2007 right off the showroom floor......in PA.....the market sucks back there....I know...:lol:


Thanks for all your input folks...it's allowing me to think how to advertise this and what to ask for it...I am not disagreeing with you folks...I just kind of have a feel for the market out here...

Here's an example: http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/mcy/2154056992.html

just sold my 06 with about 7000 miles with a couple mods for 4,500 plus a 7mm. browning rifle with a scope, and my bike was in excellent condition. if you look at any craigslist there is always someone asking way to much for their bike(like the one in your "example) it's rough out there, shitty economy and such.
here's a link to the bike i just sold http://zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=95767

lilgodwin....I take it your not located in CA...lol

Thanks for the update folks....I am still going to advertise it at $5,000 O.B.O and see what I get....hopefully around 4....:thumbsup:


I just checked on cycle trader as well and the minimum being asked for an 07 is 6500....a few dealers actually have them listed for 7500!!!

im in sales and the saying is there is a ass for every seat. so take that as you will.

i bought my 06 zx10 for 3800 about 3months ago

10K
with a few goodies. but im also in kansas and this guy was very hard up for cash.

honestly if you bought plastics for it you could ask around 6 range and i bet with a good apperence it will sell much much faster.

Just my.02

Not trying to bash ya but if you know the market so well then why post and ask? but good luck on the sale...
I was shooting for some CA members to chime in....I know what it looks like out here...but I just was hoping for some CA members opinions because they will be able to tell me whether I am way off or not...

I know you can get this bike back in B.F.E. Maryland, PA, Florida, etc. dirt cheap....CA you can ride year round, and everything for the most part is higher price...so me asking $5000 O.B.O. out here is like asking $3500 O.B.O. back east...

Like I said, I do appreciate everyone's opinions...I was just hoping for some CA members opinions....:thumbsup:

no, I'm in the florida panhandle... so I can ride year round pretty much... though it has been a bit chilly the past few days (20's)... I will be riding tomorrow as it's supposed to be around the mid 40's...

... and as far as plastics...

buy another zx10... pull off the plastics and put on your bike... then sell your bike, and... wait... nevermind, you'll be stuck with another fairingless bike :lol::lol::lol:
