Just a word of advice for your negotiating.
Take the KBB print out, and make sure you check for mileage deductions.

If they try to up the price because of mods, tell them they wouldn't up your trade in value because of the mods, so you're not buying them either.

They paid nowhere near KBB on the trade, so I would offer $5400 bottom line.
If they don't do it, walk out and find another bike.
I would be scared of a modded bike with 18k anyway personally.
I bought my 2003 silver R6 with 600 miles and flawless condition for $6000. The deals are out there, just have to be patient and find them.


Good luck.

dont buy other peoples used garbage, no offence but if you get a bike you should buy it new, finance it or somthing, theres nothing like the feeling of buying somthing brand new no1 has ever redlined, fucked with, or who knows what else. take that thought into consideration, and good luck with whatever you decide!
:cheers

You're better off going to look for another bike at another dealer. I like to buy from the guy that gives me the lowest price without any BS. I know the dealers has to make money to stay in business. I'm not the type to haggle over a deal. If the guy really wanted to sell the bike he would have posted it a the kbb value in the first place. Hopefully you'll find a good dealer like I did.

Anyone in NC, Crossroads Yamaha/Suzuki in Albemarle :swordfigh is a great dealership to deal with.

2000 R6 with "custom" paint pretty much means it's been down and the owner repainted the entire bike to match. I've crashed bikes before and insurance restored it to factory condition...decals and all. That bike sounds like junk.

There's just no good reason to finance an eight year old bike that's been half ass repaired. There are just too many better used bikes out there. Or, I would rather get like a SV650 or YZF600R or anything new instead of a 2000 R6 for anything near $5000.
