'01 WR426 w/ Calif. Plate What's it worth?
Posted January 09, 2004 - 08:53 PM
I have checked Kelly Blue Book and NADA and have the prices for a basic WR, I've got to think that one with a valid Calif. plate and regristration good through Nov. '04 is worth a little extra. Thoughts?

With the clean VIN and CA street bike title it should move fast.
Also consider posting it for sale on the AMA Dist 37 dual sport message board. The link is below. Registration is free and I think there's no charge for posting in the 4 sale section.

If you're in a hurry, you could probably let it go for cheap. If you want more cash, it's going to take a little while longer.
Keep in mind that January isn't the best time to sell stuff since everyone is broke from the holidays (like me ).

I actually did look at this guys WR while he was posting it on Ebay, if its the same one (sure sounds like it). The reserve was a bit high, even with a Baja designs kit.
Like my brother says, "if it means that much to you, just keep it becuase nobody else is attached to it yet".
I shopped a TON for my WR, and unless you want one that is in showroom condition and are willing to pay $4-$5k for it, most of the ones in good shape are going pretty much for $3300-$3600 (I've seen some NICE ones going for $3600). . These things go forever for the most part, so I would recommend to anybody looking now to not pay any more than $3500 for a top notch bike.
If you are asking too much, you'll know by the response you get. Then strip down the bike of all the aftermarket accessories, put 'em on Ebay, and try to sell the bike stock for a more reasonable price.
For what it's worth anyway....

Hit up the Dual Purpose message boards. Remember also, that it is not in season, so expect to get less for it...no matter what KBB quotes.
