Hey guys I have had to come to a decision. I have to sell my 2005 Kat it is bone stock and has 4200 miles on it. What you think it would pull off craigslist. I am going through a divorce and the bike has to go to make room in my budget to pay my child support.

Cadman, sorry to hear you have to sell the Kat,
I bought an 05 750 stock in perfect condition 1000 miles on it for $5300 Canadian last summer. The market will be softer now, off season and poor economy.

yeah lil hi-point .380ACP i picked up at our last gun show, just to target shoot with. surprisingly I like it better, then the Taurus my g/f has and it was 1/3 the price.

Only problems I had were with a few misfeeds from some crap German ammo i was shooting (WOLF) but since I got some good stuff it hasn't jammed or misfed again

Sell the child!

That is pretty funny and I wish I could. LOL!!! I adopted her about 4 years ago and now I am getting rapped by the ex. Here is some free advise......"It is cheaper to keep her"

yeah, i've heard they are pretty decent guns for the price. a lifetime warranty at that price! no offense, they're just ugly as mess!

Don't forget 25 to life!!!! I have considered it but something about sharing a cell with Bubba isn't my idea of fun.

bought my 06' kat (1200 miles) last september from a guy in the exact same situation (divorce, needed cash, etc.), for 4400 cold, hard cash.

For a realistic price guide, visit www.nadaguides.com, click motorcycle, used, then Suzuki, your year, and finally your model. Expect to have to go low in this economy & this time of year (better sales potential in April). Good luck!

Oh, and remember the following rules for the future:
1. The right woman will stay with you forever with just a ring and a promise, without "I do" & legal paperwork.
2. Never adopt another person's children from a previous relationship unless you are going to be the sole parent of record. Get a power-of-attorney for their health care & parental-type decisions instead (same powers, not same post-divorce obligations).

Cheers,

If it flies, floats or f***S, RENT IT.

At least that is what my mother always told me...

I know that the time of year is killing me trying to sell my bike. But I have it at 3900 and I am getting nothing. Not a single bite on it on Craigslist and it has been up there for 3-weeks. And I put it up on ebay for 10-days and I have 4 people watching. It has 2 days left but I am not confident that it will sell. Does anyone have any other ideas on how I can get some more interest in my bike other than dropping the price?

I'd suggest listing it in CycleTrader before permitting eBay to set the price. That way it goes into the print edition for your area as well (sold at virtually every gas station), and you get traffic that doesn't have internet access...

I just dropped the price to 3800 and it still isn't moving. What does a guy have to do to sell a bike in today's economy?

Put it in more venues, so more people see it.
Price it at a point where it's a bargain that can't be ignored.
And depending on where you live, wait for warm weather so people start thinking about riding again.
