I was woundering how much I should put my ninja ex500 up for sale. I put around $2000.00 into it. new paint, new meiors, fender elimatore, new grips, cams adjusted, valves adjested, oil change an filter, an a 6 tube led system that changes colors any color you want. any setting, an wireless remote.

I think I am going to sell soon.......If any one knows what I should take for it that would be great.

no I am geting it back from the shop soon, like in a few days. It is all running now. JUst have to wait for 2 of the bolts on the valve cover, so it will not leak oil any more. I guess the bolts were split. so that is all I need. then it is ready to ride and or sell.


SO um what do you think it will sell for?

I would say keep it. You'd be lucky to get $1k imho. I know I probably wouldn't pay more than $500 for it. I got an 03 last summer with 1600miles for $2500. You'll be losing more money than is worth it to sell it. Keep it and save up for an older reliable car. Think toyota and honda. You should be able to get some late 80's early to mid 90's civics for cheap these days. Should be the same for corollas. Maybe even an older camry would suit you well. Keep the bike though. You'll want it. You'd lose more money than a car would cost you to sell it.

I hope you don't take this wrong but there is a spell check button on here ,and you may want to check your post with it before you post , I know my spelling and punctuation is not always great so that's why I use it also.
