Do you know how the guy before you rode it? He beat the shit out of it, not take good care of it, and just trying to sell it cuz it's got shit wrong with it? Or he just need the cash so trying to get rid of it?

The price is about right, can probably get cheaper if you shop around, but it is a nice bike none the less.

I wonder why the first mod everyone runs to do as soon as they get a bike is the bolt on exhaust, does everyone just buy a bike to get attention?

thanks for the replies guys. and i expect the price to be a little high because of the fact the bike is at a dealer which i forgot to mention. but i will more then likely have to get a bike at a dealer so i can get financing. even though i have good credit my bank for some reason did not approve me a loan...

You have to compare prices in your area. A bike that will cost 4K in my area usually runs 5K in Cali... So we can't really say yay or nay on that for you.

Those two items are not mods. They come stock on that bike.

Way high, especially considering that most of the mods are not mods and the green LED's are stoopid. So basically, it's a stock bike with a cheap slip-on. I wouldn't pay over $6K.

New tires aren't really a red flag for me, the old ones could've had a nail in them or maybe the old owner just didn't like them.

The only real mod is the exhaust and that adds minimal value but since you're buying from a dealer the price will be higher. That price is still high, for my area at least. I've seen basically brand new zx6's for $5k-$6k

I bought that same bike 2 years ago from a private seller, stock with 595 miles for $5950. Turns out he was selling it so cheaply because the voltage regulator was bad, luckily it was a cheap fix.

I'm not saying that the new tires are a red flag, but when I'm buying a used ANYTHING, I question everything I can. Dirty chain? Question the maintenance on the bike. Aftermarket fairings? Vocalize your assumption that it was dropped. New tires? Again, vocalize that maybe they were changed due to excessive burnouts, being tracked a ton, etc.

Everything you can bring into question possibly lowers the price, and at the very least gives you more leverage for negotiation.

You need a loan for 5g's?!...Not to knock you down or anything, but you probably shouldn't buy a bike if you can't afford 5gs. Just wait and save up. I paid cash for all my bikes. The 06 and 07 were brand new from the stealership. Bikes are cheap...don't get caught financing them.

I agree. Bikes are toys, if you can't afford to buy it outright, you probably can't afford it in general. After you factor in the interest, at that list price, you're going to pay close to $9000 for a nearly 5 year old bike. You also have to factor in about another $1000 for proper riding gear, if you don't already have it, plus insurance, plus maintenance, plus repairs in the event of a crash or drop. Save the loan for something that is an actual necessity, like a home. You'll also have more leverage negotiating a good price on the bike if you walk in there with cash in hand.

I bought exhaust a month or two after purchasing my 650R, for safety reasons. I rarely go high in the RPMs. On my commute I stay under 6K most of the time, and stock exhaust is almost silent at that level.

I want the lady in the suburban next to me to remember I'm next to her before she changes lanes into me.

So that is the reason I got exhaust, not to show off.
