Wow! with only 400mi on it, ye've not even got it broken in. I'd try for retail and field offers. If you can only get under 6g for it; I'd peel off the high dollar accessories and sell 'em on Ebay....eg the pipe, damper, clamp & computer.

Only ridden in ca desert. No mud or rain so it stayed nice and clean not to mention I clean after every use. I was thinking btwn $5700 and 6000 with all the work I have done. I have considered E-Bay, but want the buyer to have a great bike. I think someone who knows bike will pay a fair price with the options.

You are best to put all stock parts back on and sell the bike.
E-bay all the goodies. This would be your best return hands down.
It sure is a sweet ride.

To be honest I don't have most of the stock stuff. So the goodies will stay on the bike. Let your friends know about the bike. It will be a great deal for a luckyu buyer. Basically a new bike with all the upgrades done. Call me if you know anyone who is interested 949-525-2843

I have a question about the stock odometer, does the trailtech mount over the top without removing the stock? Very nice bike!

That's a nice bike, bummer for having to sell it. I sure hope it's not over a woman...I'd get rid of her first. I basically have the same bike, but it's an 04. It sounds like your in the right price range. I was thinking somewhere around $5800.00 would be a good starting point and if you have to drop down to a couple of hundred. For a return on the money you put out for the aftermarket stuff you pretty much end of taking it in the shorts.

Good luck,

Bob

The Scotts upper tripleclamp doesn't really have a mounting spot for the stock odo, and if you put the money out for the Trailtech, why would you leave the stock one on?

I removed the stock odometer when the trailtech went on. The bike is only seven months old so milegage is not really an issue. The stock odometer would not fit with the trailtech..

You would probably make out better selling the mods indepedently. I certainly would be interested in the bars, dampner, and computer. PM me if interested.

That seems very reasonable to me. If you lived closer I would even consider upgrading for that price.

I'll tell you... with so low mileage and all the upgrades, I would be ready to pay even more than for a brand new. If the new ones retail for 6300 in Calif,then 5700-6000 sounds like a heck of a good deal to me . :D

Talk about a nice ride. It's not just the numerous upgrades, it's what upgrades! JD jetting kit, Pro Taper, Scotts, FMF... everything sounds sweet :D
