Hey guys I found this on craigslist and was wondering what you guys thought about the price for the bike. I mean it looks pretty clean and I talked to the guy so Im prob going to check the bike out tomorrow or monday just wanted to get your opinions on if its worth the amount hes asking for. He wanted 5600 but I dropped him to 5400 so lets see if its worth it.

Heres the link http://southjersey.craigslist.org/mcy/533875036.html

The bike looks like it's in really good condition. Maybe it's just me but you can probably get a 2006 R6 for about $6000; So $5400 is a little too much for an '04.

If you like it, get it. :yes

Yea Im really trying to spend at least 5500 or less on a bike bc I would prefer used since it would be my first one... But I figure all the maintenance he just recently did would prob cost somewhere near that even if I payed 5000 on one without it right?

i think thats a little high for a bike with 8000 miles on it. maybe somewhere in the 4500 to 5000 range would be more reasonable.

Yea, this time of year, that is way too high imo. you should offer him more around 4500. people on this forum are selling 06's for 6000.

That's really good milage for a bike that's 4-5 years old. I think that 4500-5000 is about a fair price just because it'a a 2004.

i payed 5000 cash for an 04 in june of 2007. had 2,000 miles on it, mint condition. so id offer him alittle lower, its also out of season... 5000 would be my highest offer if i was you.

haha I just feel bad bc I was like how does 5200 sound and he said he could do 5400 and if I tell him I can only do like 4800 or 5000 wouldnt that be lying? But oh well I guess it couldnt hurt right?

Bump any other comments about the bike should I ask him again to lower the price? Or should I keep looking?

Sorry for not mentioning that I am from NJ (Central Im from Middletown and go to Rutgers University) Im actually willing to go out on a limb and say Im open to any bike as long as its either 04 - 06 and less than 10k mileage for around 5 g's haha I know Im being vague but I really cant find any decent ones and trust me I have been looking. So if you guys could keep a look out for me I would really appreciate it!

Yea I know of him and his g35. I sent you a PM with some bikes to check out if the other bike you found falls through. Give me and PM when you get it, if you need any help with anything or watever. I like the D&D, if you wanna come check it out anytime before you buy an exhaust im right down the road.

i have a buddy who got an 04 last oct. for 4700 w/ 6000 miles, and i just got my 07 for 6400... so talk him down, but i really dont know what the demand is for south jersey so it could be a reasonable price. i say take a look at it if it looks clean and rides good then talk to him and see what yall can work out!
