I am contemplating selling my bike due to the fact that I will not be able to ride for 6-9 months while I rehab from ACL surgery.

I wonder if you guys can help me decide what I could get for my bike.

'04 YZF 450 - 29.8 hrs

Renthal Twinwall Bars
Rg3 upper clamps
Custom Shorty Thunder Alley - full system
Yamaha hour meter
Scotts Stainless Filter
Nuetral Switch Cover
Storm racing Fuel Screw
Storm Racing Billet Oil filler plug
Graphic MX Chrome Flame graphics
Billet throttle tube
New 756rr front - 2 rides
New 756 Rear - 2 rides
DID X ring chain
Renthal Frt Sprocket
Titax Stainless Rear sprocket
Decal works # plates with the number of your choice (I would buy for new owner)
Wiseco 13.5 Piston kit ( not installed ) New in box
Complete maintenance record that shows each oil change, every time the bike was torn down for chassis grease, tire changes, valve adjustments, and each time it was cranked and ridden. Broken down by date and hours.

The bike is cleaner than the board of health. I just can't stand for it to sit collecting dust while I can't ride. All of my riding buddies want me to bring it to the track so they can trash it......nah. I think I might sell, and start fresh when I am healed.

For what its worth

Kelly Blue book lists an 03 for 3500 trade in and 5080 retail. I figure add 1k to each for an 04.

Starting ata base of 5180, not sure what you paid for it, what you put into it or what a new 04 is sold for OTD in your area.

But the fact is no matter what you put into a bike you will not get half if your lucky back out of it, thats a wash.

If new 04's are sold OTD in your area for 52 - 5800 then you are pretty screwed as far as recouping any monitary value back.

Wyatt I say Keep the bike, you have way to much invested, Unless your willing to take a loss dont sell it. Or you can hold your line on a set price and simply wait for the right buyer


A quick search on cycletrader.com came up with 5300 for a 04 and one for 4000 for an 04

I am thinking that I would take 5400 for it. That is giving away aftermarket parts. I would not take a dollar less. I Would just keep it. It is not like I am getting out of riding, I am just thinking of getting a new bike next year.

Find out what a new 04 is going for OTD in your area. 5400 may be a great price for someone

WHat does your chief mechanic say about it :)
Good luck

I'm with EGO. 9 months isn't all that long and you have definately put a lot into your bike. Put a blanky on it until your ready to wake it up! :)

People tend to only look at price on bikes, "goodies" are just a tie breaker.

You could set the bike back to stock and sell the bike for a lower price. Then keep the parts for your new bike or sell them here. I'll bet you net more $$$ that way. :)

If you're set on selling it, put all the stock stuff back on the bike and sell it. You might leave some of the cheaper "eye candy" on the bike just to entice people. You should get pretty much the same for it whether you have the aftermarket goodies on the bike or not. Then sell the aftermarket stuff on TT or ebay. It takes a little more time and effort on your part, but at least you would get something out of all that stuff.

No matter what though, since you plan on buying a new bike later, I would keep anything you think you would be able to use on your next one.

Why didn't you hurt yourself when I was bike shopping? Why? Why!!????? I would've bought a YZF with the goodies for this price.

This is a STEAL for someone shopping for a new bike. The way Wyatt takes care of his bikes this is better than a new one. No prep or anything needed. Just get on it and go.

Next time I need a bike I'm sending someone to Texas with a big steel bar. :)

Put a price you think is what you need.If someone gives it then let her go..don't budge. There might be some really needy guy out there with an honest hard luck story looking for some help.But if you plan on buying an 05 some of the aftermarket stuff will swap,bars 'n whatnot....By the way how did you like the 756RR front tire?
