I have been looking for a second bike for track only.

My question is, what would you pay for this? It's pretty much bone stock with a salvage title. I am debating on waiting till the end of the season. Just thought there may be others with some insight or experience with bikes and salvage titles. He said the salvage title is from a low slide at the track. To risky?

I sold my previous 08 with some more goodies and ~5k miles on it for $4500, so I'd say ~$3800 or under with salvage title and no street bodywork or other track goodies included
This is more in the lines what I was thinking. He seems pretty firm on his price. He initially had it at $5,000

I was close to buying the 848 Hayden this weekend. He wanted $10, 500 with 1160 miles on it. I didn't realize the insurance bumped up double though. It was hard to pass up on.
Thats about what I paid for mine with 509 miles on it. I finally broke 600... Its a pretty sweet bike, but only if you ride it like you hate it, otherwise you realize how much it sucks for 85% of your riding.:laugh

:lmao My buddy has the same one (EVO) and said the same thing. He abuses his though. I was just going to get one for tooling around and by the sound of it, it would be more painful than enjoyable.
