Re: 2003 954RR FOR SALE!
I'm going to break this to you as gently as possible. You are not sitting on a goldmine. You're selling a scratched-up 15-year-old bike with a POS noisemaker attached. KBB says that bike is worth between $2900 and $4700. You'll never get $5K for it. You'll be lucky to get $4500.
Forget eBay. eBay is OK for a niche bike, a collector's item. That's not what you have. You have a scratched-up 15-year-old bike with a POS noisemaker attached. Here's how to sell it. First, shitcan the D&D and buy a used stock exhaust. Then put on your local CL for a high price. You can try $7K, but it's a waste of time. I'd start at $6K. that's still high. Then lower it $200 a week until it sells.
Remember, there is no magic buyer out there. Your ad is being viewed by thousands of people every day. If you're not getting calls, the market is telling you it's priced too high. It will sell when you hit the right price for that market.
The guys here will probably tell you I'm crazy. That the bike will sell for much more than I say. Remember this. They are enthusiasts. They LOVE 954s. But they're not buying your bike. They all have 954s in the garage already.
