....only $6500???

Note to self:
1. keep all OEM parts when converting a bike to a race bike.
2. keep records of all cost on parts
3. dismantel race bike and part it out when ready to sell
4. Put OEM parts back on and sell bike as STOCK.

Damn, that's harsh. You could probably sell the bike stock for 5k and part out the add ons to make more than that.

I thought for sure people would say like 10k or some shat like that.

This is the unfortunate reality of owning a production 4 stroke sportbike... Depreciation will bend you over and take you for a nice little ride.

So, here's the break down per Kelly Blue Book...
6800 Retail
4700 Trade-In

These numbers are for a excellent condition 100% bone stock bike. Since your bike is not longer showroom new, you won't be able to get the 6800 that KBB suggests. However, since the bike is practically new, I would say a fair asking price would be somewhere between 4700 and 6800. To make things simple, let's say 5750. Now keep in mind this is for a bone stock '05 RR.

Now factor in the fact that the bike has been raced and that'll drop the asking price a bit. Let's say down to 5500. However, with all the goodies and add-ons you can add another 1000 or so on the asking price. Which brings us to my original estimate of 6500. Keep in mind there are only three major items that really affect the asking price, full TI exhaust, slipper clutch, and spare rims... You might be able to get away with asking 7000. Which if you do, more power to ya.

Your other option is to high-ball and slowly bring down the price until you sell it... However, if you're in a hurry to sell, this may not be the best approach.

I hope that helps explain how I came up with the number that I did.
