What's a good selling price if my bike is in this condition?
Hey guys, sorry for my absence, I'm still alive and well! Anyways, I'm going to be starting my career in trucking in the next month or so, and I'll be having to part with my baby. As sad as that is, I'll have nowhere to store it, won't get much riding time in, and I could use some cash for the transition. Just wondering if you guys could give me some opinions on what I should/could ask for it, as it's got a few issues at the moment, nothing too catastrophic I don't suppose. I got laid off in April and haven't been able to afford some much needed maintenance. I'm in Las Vegas, it's a black '08, daily ride for a few years now and still is, approx 22k miles (I'll have to double check that), I'll go over the good and the bad.
The Good: Engine runs great, transmission shifts through all the gears smoothly, accelerates like she should, no dents or cracked fairings (some scratches and blemishes though), no crashes, 2-into-1 exhaust (sounds really good), carbs are in good shape (came from the legendary gentleman and scholar Ducatiman), battery is good, cables, chain and sprockets are a 7/10 (in my opinion), flush mount signals, no tears on seat, blacked out windscreen, red reflective rim tape, red anodized oem levers and some nice long Ninja 650 mirrors.
The Bad: Right side fork seal has leaked and gotten into the front brake, reducing braking ability (I have a full rebuild kit with pads but some rat bastard stole ALL of my tools), petcock lever has started to leak a little, and what I assume to be the worst part: Has to be given a little 'bump' to start 60% of the time. Not a full push start but slightly rolling it a few feet in second gear before releasing the clutch, then the electric start will work. I'm not even sure what the problem is, been doing it for a few months.
The Ugly: No lower fairing due to the 2-into-1 exhaust. Exhaust has an almost cool looking red surface rust forming. Tires could probably be replaced, they aren't really worn, but the front looks kinda dry.
So what do you guys think a good price would be? I'd really appreciate hearing your opinions, as always - you guys probably know better than me. And in case anyone is here in Las Vegas or the general area I'd be more than happy to let one of you guys take it off my hands, I'd rest easier knowing she'd be going to a good home. Thanks guys!
