OK...shoot me a price, as to what you think my 2000 426 is worth. I have someone kind of lined up to buy it...but, if it falls through. Here is what it has:

-Renthal Button bend bars w/ spare MC bend
-Race Tech II Gold Valves front and rear
-.49/6.0 and stock springs
-cylinder, piston, rings, wristpin and bearing replaced 4 months ago
-BK mod is done, I have extra jets and needles
-fresh CB key
-braided steel front brake line
-Uni air filter
-Hinson clutch basket
-Ceet "Gripper" black seat cover
-oil and filter change every two rides
-no bent parts, i.e., radiators, subframe never bent, etc.
-starts first kick hot or cold! (do the drill)

I never thought any of the extra stuff mattered, so my price will probably be low...

I've got a new motor in my '00, decent tires, chain, Renthals, new seat and will be asking $3,500 (prob. take 3) when I'm ready to sell it next month.

You may be able to start @ $4,000 in your market but around here that would be too much.

Hope this helps.

uh oh...making room for the 450 huh? I know that feeling. I am trying to sell my Dad's 98' XR400 if you guys know anyone interested in a clean bike the link/info is on my site.

I would ask $4200 and dont take much less than 4k...the market down here is real good for 426's so you should sell it quickly. Good Luck,

With the upgrades to your machine, I would also think that the $4,000 neighborhood is accurate. What you would be willing to accept is up to you.

Kelly Blue Book says the retail "What A Dealer Would Sell It For" is 4260

The Trade In Value is 2925 Ouch "What a dealer would give you.

I figure it this way, I paid 4500 for mine in Jan 2002, the guy had 3 solid rides aprox guess 20 hrs or less on the motor. I have about 500 in it tires, chain, crap like that, I have gotten at least 1k of fun out of it.

If I were to sell mine I would be asking 4500, would not take less then 3800, its in great shape have all receipts and well maintained. Thats if I were to sell it today which I am not, well unless soemone offers and its green. Well Thats me and I am a tight wad.

Oh ya and I have one documented on Video Blupper.

EGO knows this, I just bought mine on Sunday for a 2002 TTR125L + $900, so I think it works out to be worth about $3000, which may be because the market is fairly poor up here. I think a lot of people are holding out for the 450, so they don't want the 426, but just my opinion.

Hey, the guy I was buying it from was riding a new CRF, so maybe you could get a good deal from him when he upgrades back to the YZF :) !

Go to kbb.com

go under motorcycle and they will give you your trade in and retail value of your bike. You will probably end up being right between those 2 numbers, good luck.

Blue Book is a joke nowadays.. Dealers use the NADA guide, and pay well below wholesale for trades. Pop open the local Cycle Trader, and you'll see what they're going for in your area.
