I think I'm listing mine for $650 shipped, and I haven't had any nibbles...

I sold mine recently on the board for $600. I probably could have asked more, but I didn't feel like it, nor did I need to.
I think $600-$650 is a plenty fair price to pay.

That amazes me.  Throw it up on ebay.  I bet you'll get at LEAST $600, probably $700.
I'm about to

*THUMP* I sent you a message asking you how much it weighed so I could work out shipping to Aus and work out a deal... now tell me how much it weighs or I'll wander over there and...

I'm just curious...do you guys think a shock that's been raced is worth less?

Not if it was 'adult owned' and never seen rain---

With the same number of miles as a non-raced shock, yes, because it would likely be closer to needing a rebuild.

But most racers rebuild their shocks every year--costs $75-$100---mine was rebuilt 6 mos ago

Yeah, and aren't ridden in the rain (in cA), are cleaned often, and typically have low miles...  I'd rather get a shock from a knowledgeable racer than a street guy.

I think the most abused shocks are the ones on bikes that do lots'a street stuff with some trackdays but no racing.

But I was just curious, I wanted $550 for mine and nobody wanted it...maybe that's why?

Right, but that was not part of my qualifying statement.

I'd rather have a shock that was recently rebuilt than one that's been on a street bike for XXXX miles and hasn't seen a wrench since the day it was installed.

Where were you when I was buying mine? $550 and no sale?
