I am sort of getting the I might be waiting a while. It's ok. I don't need the money and people will be a little more free with their cash after tax refunds. I had expected to never sell the bike, but things change. I thought I would have been riding it a lot more. It hurts even more because I love every single mod I did to the bike, but all and all, they are pretty mild modificatons. No monkeying with the engine, no fooling with the airbox or jetting.

You have put money into that bike.... I think you should be up around 6,900 or so. It is hard jto get the money out jof the xtra stuff with it still on the bike. PUt it back to stock and sell that xtra stuff on craigs list. Bigger bang for the buck. That is what I did with my last bike sale. WOrked out good and I did spend one day in the garage breaking it back down but it was worth it in the long run.

New baby (human baby). I've got no time and I'm building a coffee truck for a small business. I can stock a few things, but the shocks, ****ty oem lights are history. I'll try to get what I can.

Don't have much to offer on the asking price, but would generally agree that mods really can't be expected to add alot of value...and say, are one of those scoots in the background a Bajaj?

Well I sank the most money in the shocks, progressive springs, rear rack and stand. I see them as more like upgrades than mods. The rest are mods that add up for sure, but most are fairly inexpensive. Certainly not worth my time to dig back into the idiot lights to take out the LEDs or open up the headlight etc. I think I am going to sell the roadgear bag on fleabay at least. PM me if you want to make me an offer. It was $89 and still unused.

And hells yea that is a bajaj. I'm going to be looking for another when I sell this bike.

Thought I recognized that seat. My girlfriend has a champagne color one of those. In fact, I have her to thank for getting me into this whole owning a motorcycle mess. If I'd have never ridden her scooter, I may have just kept thinking I'd buy another motorcycle someday.

Myself, I could never part with Bonnie for the scoot, although that mileage is pretty awesome!

Honestly, the only things on your bike that could possibly warrant you charging more for the bike, is the upgraded suspension. All the other stuff is trash... or to be more polite, personal preference. I wouldn't pay more than $5000 for it. Too bad you got rid of most of the stock bits.

Wow. Someone got up on the wrong side of the bed. I would hardly call a renntec rack and dart flyscreen "trash". But I will be de-emphasizing the less valuable mods/upgrades.
