A little pricey but if you look at all the things he has done to it it's still cheaper then race prepping your own bike. Plus the tire warmers and the generator.

Damn, and it was dropped.
The best part is how it says "Hate to sell (really, really hate to sell) but need the money. My loss can be your gain."

Yea, loss, more like cutting into the profit margin.

Holy shit! You could buy a brand new Ducati 749 OTD for the BIN price he's asking! What the hell is he thinking? lol

That can't be a real auction....I mean it is because it's there, for everyone to see on eBay, but he/she is simply hoping that someone goes on eBay and hits "Buy it now" and doesn't look back.

On a similiar note:

It's the same thing with engine covers. People automatically think that they are getting a great deal on them because they are on eBay. I needed one for a CBR600F3 and checked eBay, it was like $54 + shipping. I checked at the local dealer, $45. People these days are so stupid that they just think that because it is on eBay, it is the best deal. Vendors have been preying on that for a long time, and a lot of people don't have a friggin' clue about it, because they don't bother to research.

Good advise.
Same thing goes with any online vendor. SOmetimes the local shop has the same or lower prices than the internet (which has shipping charges). Check out local prices and compare. Sometimes when its like $5 difference or something I just buy it from the local store, and don't have to wait. Call it a convenience fee.

Eh...if the whole thing was completely prepped, someone who wants a turn key track outfit might be willing to pay that kind of money. It takes a little time (or money) to fully prep a bike with race fairings with a belly pan, drilling holes and safety wiring everything together, all that jive...the Yamaha is what really gets me.

I completely agree. I've had good luck with kneedraggers having things for great prices, or on sale or what not, but they have a lot of stuff that's right around MSRP, too. I've had the most luck going to small bike shops (fuck Cycle Gear, those bastards don't deal for shit)...little race shops and such that start out their inventory by parting out their old track bike...those are the places I love going to.

I only use ebay for rare shit that you can't find or order, and it IS a good place to find deals on whole vehicles IF YOU RESEARCH (IMO, anyone who buys a vehicle online without researching...ugh...I hate stupid people). I got an ABSOLUTE STEAL on my 636 on eBay, and now 2.5 years and 25k miles later, I don't have ANYTHING negative to say about it.
