  • Need an appraisal on my Kat

    I have a 1999 Katana 600. The fairings need repaired, it is missing the belly fairings. The choke cable is seized and the lever is broke, it has a dent in the gas tank, the taillight is busted, the left turn signal is broke, the oil drain plug is stripped out. All the fairings are off right now. I was just trying to see how much it is worth. Thanks for your help.

      Insurance appraisal, or realistic value of what you can get for it?

      Generally, I work my valuations backwards:
      NADA - $1640 (TYPICAL/GOOD) - $2055 (MINT)
      Front/Main Fairings - $600
      Belly Fairing - $200
      Gas Tank - $350
      Choke Cable* - $20
      Control Pod - $130
      Tail Light* - $50 (used)
      Left turn signal (rear) - $35
      Oil Pan - $60 (used)

      Note: items with an astrick, I have available for sale.

      That leaves you a residual value of around $325 - $740, IMHO, which literally means that you'll make the most parting it out (if you're trying to sell it), or if you want to do a DYI fix-it up project, it'll set you back probably the better part of a grand if you go all used parts (far less if you plastic-weld the existing fairings and paint yourself).

      PS - I have the tail fairings on ebay right now ($10 each plus postage), if you need 'em, as items:

        I wouldn't pay more than about $500.

          yeah id say 500 sounds about right... theres a TON of work to be done just to get it on the road, let alone looking decent.

            $500 at the absolute most, even than I would think it would be hard to sell.

              To give some perspective, I paid $300 for my 92 kat which needed a paint job, carb cleaning, and basic maintainance.
