Re: Was this a bad deal

You need some new tires, bro! And to get in it for 3700 bucks is a pretty good deal, just ride the thing and enjoy!

Re: Was this a bad deal

$3700 for a 2007 with a clean title in good shape is a STEAL.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Was this a bad deal

yea the rear tire has tread but i do need a front for sure, and the tank is boogered pretty good i just dont have pics of it i mean it still works just looks like a dropped the bike everytime i pull up which bothers me a little. And unfortunatley it is not a clean title it will always have the history of being dropped but it is pretty clear it was dropped not layed down while riding. Like i said everything is just about mint except the tank.

Re: Was this a bad deal

Yea i felt like i got a real decent deal but the guy made me second guess it. The carbon fiber really made me want it i love the contrasts. Any suggestions on a good quality front tire its got pirelles now i may stick with that

Re: Was this a bad deal

Ur buddy is probably just a cheap dude. That's a pretty decent deal. Ask him where he can get a bike like that for 2500. I'm sure it's happened but not very often at all.

Re: Was this a bad deal

That's a great deal as echo'd above. I wish I had only $1850 out of pocket for an R6. Even with the gun trades you came out on top. Ride the hell out of that thing and enjoy!

Why do people always say, "Grow some balls"? Balls are soft and sensitive. People should say, "Grow a vagina". Vagina's can take a pounding!!

Re: Was this a bad deal

did no one else read that it was a salvage title? I'd pay $3000 tops for it. Depending on which state you live in, getting a rebuilt title can be a nightmare (MA comes to mind). Dont know about GA. TX and NH are relatively easier to get a rebuilt title.

Insurance buy back for that would have been ~$2000-2500 (guesstimating). So the seller got some $$ in pocket after this deal for sure.
