Honestly, if I were you I'd part that puppy out. You'll do a heck of a lot better.
I'm seeing '02s in really good shape starting around $4000.00.
There are still a lot of us out here that love the bike and want keep it going enough that we'll pay for good used parts.
I first read the post and I was thinking maybe 1800$. I don't see it moving for more than maybe 2 grand. Look at it from the potential buyer's side. He/she does not know if it runs or has problems not seen. Even with no serious hidden problems there are a couple of grand worth of repairs and up grades minimum. Then you are at the price of one running and in good condition. :surprise: And this is if the buyer does the work. No way you could turn it over to a shop and keep your check book from catching fire.
Best bet is to either part it out or maybe hope to get about $1,500. When it cost more to fix than you can get for it, it really has very limited value. I have an 02 Infinity QX4 that runs great and I really like. It's book is about $2,000. If I'm just bumped, the insurance company will total it and write me a check for about $1,500.
Well, if I felt better, parting it out would be an option....but even then shipping costs need to be considered on the larger parts , which is where the most money is. One guy wanted to buy the windshield, but the damn shipping added $90 more to it..He wouldn't have saved anything over new, unless I took the loss...
Oh well....I'll keep posting it , maybe it will catch someones interest?
