    Motorcycle values

    How do you guys figure out how much a bike is worth for a private sale? NADA and Kelly Blue Book only list retail and trade in value. The priices on E-bay seem to vary too widely to be a good gauge.

    I would use retail as a high and trade-in as a low. Most folks wont pay retail unless it's for something rare or in high demand. Private party sales are usually less than dealer sales as well.

    depends if you're buying or selling...

    retail if you're selling, trade-in if you're buying.

    I also pick up the "Want Ad" and compare prices.

    The rules of putting a motorcycle up for sale:

    1) Any mods I did to the bike MUST at least double the value!

    2) Scratches deduct $5 tops.

    3) It is still WICKED FAST so it's probably worth as much as when I bought it.

    4) It's so REALLY FAST that I better not let anyone ride it before they buy it.

    5) No one will be able to get another (F4, Gixxer, etc..) within 1000 miles of here so I can just keep the price high and it will sell fast.

    6) I only rode it 2000 miles in 4 years so I didn't need to change the oil, tires, brakes, etc.., so it's still just as good as new!
