Default How much should I ask?

So it's a very sad day... because today I realize I can't afford to keep any of my toys with my new house purchase and engagement in sight. So I've decided for the time being to sell my bike, but I have no idea where to begin with the price.

I paid $1700 for the bike last winter, it has ~30k miles on it. I put new fairings on it (then dropped it...on both sides but the scratches are not that noticable both drops were in the driveway), and it runs perfect. It has pretty good tires, a new front tire. How much should I be asking?

I'm going to assume he is talking about an F4i. I don't know how you got it for 1.7k but that's sick!
Ask for $3,500 and be ready to get haggled down to 3k even.

Start w/ KBB value. Then realistically adjust for mileage/condition/accessories.
In my area, your bike (from what I can tell in the pictures) would easily go for 2k+.

Sorry it has to go. Good luck w/ your sale.

Depending on when you sell(before riding season) and how patient you are, you can get $3k here in socal. My friend spent $3000 on a F4i with 30k miles with a few mods. Wasn't worth in imo but he still got it. Ran without any problems too.

Do you have the mirrors you can put on it. As a buyer I would buy a bike with mirrors over one without unless the price was too good to pass up. It also depends on how big of a hurry you are to sell it. If your not in a hurry I say start high cause who knows you might get some kid with more money than brains come up and pick it up then your sitting pretty. Its a lot easier to lower the price than raise it.
