If the cash checks out at a bank as genuine, you should take it. KBB retail value for my 06 is $4200.

Thanks Kuro. Ya i Know the $3950 is a decent/good price, I am just not so sure if I should make the move to a newer 05+ bike just bc the $ is there...I love this F4i (esp since I commute) and dont know if I will regret it should I get a more ergonomically aggressive bike such as a 2006 zx6r or 07 cbr rr...

4 grand is a strong price. I'd probably take it and get something newer. You could get a new RR for not a whole lot more than that if you look around enough.

Well, ive considered asking for around $4k for mine, and yours is in the same or better condition...So id really consider it if your seriously looking into a different bike. These f4i's are tanks, everyone loves em!

Noober that is an amazing price, especially considering the damage to your right fairing. Tell that guy to give you the cash and you'll give him the keys. I use my 07 RR to commute daily, not to mention I'll go on 200+ mile rides every now and then and it is comfortable. Different from the F4i sure but not uncomfortable. Nate will back me up here when I say I have no regrets selling the F4i and moving up to the RR. The F4i is a great bike but the RR is that much better. Take the money and run.

KBB Retail for your bike is $2,720

If the cash is real, hand him the title. If someone offered me $5,400 cash for Ororo, $1200 above her retail value, I'd tell him "Meet me in the bank so the teller can check the cash and they can notarize the title"

As always Rdub speaks the truth. Great deal too like Kuro pointed out.


If its legit i'd take it.

I say take it as your always bell aching about wanting a RR and not wanting your F4i anymore. Anytime something happens you ask if its time to sell yet. Not really sure why you have it to be honest.....

As for a kawi, your f'in nuts.
