Hi guys,

I just posted in the general D group, not noticing there was a Canada forum. Basically, I'm a new rider, 30yo, just got my M2, and I was thinking that a used 2000-2002 ZX-6r would be the ticket.

I'd like to purchase a used bike from a dealer sometime in Sept/October. My question was - what sort of wiggle room should I expect to be able to negotiate when a bike is listed for around $8000?

I'm not sure what kind of room you will have but don't forget from a dealer you pay pst & gst. I think you get better deals buying from the autotrader, and you only pay pst. Just keep looking you should find some good deals this time of year. Good luck

Dealers will wiggle a bit with older stock like the 00-02's.
Also, if you dont mind going a little higher, my buddy will probobly sell his 02 this fall, he wants an 03 or 04.
Here is a pic of it, he probobly wants around 9k..

I think I'd rather have a bone stock bike without performance upgrades... being a new rider, I'm sure the bike in its standard form will have no problem scaring me.

True, but if you can find a bike with quality mods professionally installed (no weekend hack mechanics)... you will be WAY further ahead of the game. You usually pay 4 times as much for mods when you do 'em new yourself. I used to think your way. Not anymore. Gimme a tricked up bike for basically the same price as some stocker and it's a deal...

Ummm.... I'm not an experienced rider, and I'm not interested in extra power. Modifications are a personal thing, and personally, I like the bike as is. I'd rather get a brand new leftover at about $9k than a modified used bike for the same price.
