I got a brand new WR450 - 04 back in August and I did some minor mod's on it, rejet the main, took out the snorkel, changed the exhaust insert, change the handlebars and added bark busters. Then I rode it ince (9 miles) and I do not think I will get time to ride it at all in the spring. :cry:

So with this in mind I will probably try to sell it to someone local in Cleveland, Ohio, but what can I ask for it? :cry:

I hope you guys can give me some idea on what is fair, and would get it sold.

I know this isn't what you were looking for, but what would you pay for it, assuming that you didn't personally know the seller (yourself) or their (your) maintenence habbits? :cry:

That's the thing, I have no idea what it's worth = I do not know what I would pay for it.

My guess would have been that the value of it is around $4K. (may the $3.5K is it Drew, who knows)

I think I will ask the local dealer if the can sell it for me, that way I do not have to hagle with someone on the price.

Just checked the blue book,

Trade in, just shy of $3.6K

Sell to consumer, just shy of $5.0K

Think I will advertise it for $4.0 and see what the interest is,,, where is the best place to sell it?? e-bay?

$4500 would be a good starting point if it has only 9 miles, its like new. Its definitly woth more. I'd check the cycle trader, find them as http://www.cycletrader.com and just look for bikes like yours, condition, miles and sree what they are selling them for.

Here's one on Ebay for $4800 (starting bid) buy it now is at $5300.
http://cgi.ebay.com/...4514578460&rd=1
This one was bought in June and has 100 miles on it.
Here in my neck of the woods (CO) one in your condition would fetch more than $5K.
Good luck

I just bought an '03 model with 350 miles on it a couple months ago and paid $4000 from a dealer. I saw them listed anywhere from $3700-$4500 when I was looking. I'd say for a like new '04 you could get between $4,500-$5,000. Dealers would be asking around $5,500.

Dealers were last seen selling brand new 04's for $5500. So, price it fairly. Take some pics, put it on e-bay, and see what happens. A dealer may charge anywhere from 10-20% consignment. I'll give you $3600.00
