Seems a little on the high side to me. I paid $10k out the door for my brand new 07, about 3 years ago. I would be thinking under $7k; the bike is over 4 years old.

IMHO, bolt-ons are lost money when it comes to selling a bike. You may be able to pull a little over book on it if it's substantial, but just lowered with a pipe don't qualify as substantial in my book.

KBB values that bike retail at $6,800....this is what a dealer could ask....I know some use NADA...they're optimistic at $7,880 Average Retail....I would try to get it down to $6,500 and jump...if not...welll....to each their own...there's plenty more fish in the sea.

you might be best buying a standed one (then add mods)so you no it has not had a hard time.people only get the good stuff because they want more check the tyres when you look to there could be a good chance the person that owned it before was scared of it!thats the bike you want.

Paid $8700 out the door in April 2010 for a brand new '08. Folks don't realize that aftermarket stuff does not enhance the value of a motorcycle.
