Price for my bike

I am thinking of selling my bike to get a stunter, or a shitty bike I can turn into a stunter. How much do you guys think I can sell my bike for. Its a 1999 yzf600r i forget its milage, like 20-25k. The left side fairing has a light roadrashed from when I went down, and it has other misc scratches and stuff from me doing "my" mechanics . Front tire is basically new, almost needs a new back tire. Has new chains and sprockets, however the front sprocket needs to be installed by someone who knows what they are doing, and the turn singals need to be fixed cause they dont work right, so I just disconnected them. I think I am gonna start at like 3500 and go down because my friend has quite a few buddies who are desperate to start riding and they will probably throw down some money pretty easy.

unless you had the r6, your not gonna get that high. I'd say 3000 would be a fair price maybe a little less since you need some stuff done to it for maintence. btw, that bike has enough power to do stunts on. As long as you get your balance down, you can stunt it.

Hi slick1537-

So you're going to sell a seven-year-old bike with roadrash, broken turnsignals, a worn tire, and 25K on the odometer so you can purchase a shitty bike for stunting?

Why not make that your dedicated stunting bike since you know its history and concentrate your efforts on purchasing something newer that you can maintain in pristine condition as your regular ride?

Probably because the 600R weighs a lot compared to the typical 600 and 1000 bikes. Though it can be used for stunting.

If you were in FL, and fix up those minor road rash (given no crack on the fairings), replace the indicators, I can see you get decent $3k for it. And I suppose less in NY.

The 600 r weights a ton, the only cage I can find for it is a 905, and there are no 12 bars for it. My bike still looks great, but I kinda like the idea of having something that I can just beat the shit out of.

is it the yzf 600r with the banana seat or an r6 blah blah blah. I always hated Yamaha and Kawasaki's labeling.

No offense, but I think you already have your piece to beat on. You could find a replacement "ride" for 3K and be a step ahead.

I don't know, 500 lb bike with the power of an old-generation 600 might not be fun at first to stunt on, it's like pulling a stoppie on a Busa. Of course it's do-able, but I guess he figures if you can get your hands on much lighter and easy going 600, why not go for it. Newer 600s also have the advantage of power wheelies, so don't always have to rely on clutch ups.
