Help me find a 13'-14' used zx6r! Coming over to the dark side!

Sup guys,

I hope its ok to post here.

So my bike was rear ended (when the light turned GREEN like wtf?!)

They decided to total my 09 CBR600RR, which I got for a STEAL.

Paid $4500 for it, and walked away with $7500 lol + my jacket and helmet.

So now that the kind young gentlemen has put me in scopes of my DREAM BIKE.

Ive been scouring up and down the east coast for 13' 636's used, and it seems that everyone is asking for more than KBB even says they are worth. (I use KBB as the rate a little lower and helps with negotiating, plus they have a mileage range).

Ive seen some people asking for as much as 2015 636's like $500 less.

Ive seen 2 good deals on here One which was really close to me and another in kentucky.

I'd Ideally like to spend $6000-$6500, and not be over the suggested mileage.


Any help on finding a bike, but more so suggesting realistic price ranges would be much appreciated! Hope I can join the pack soon.

I Ride: 2013 zx6r abs
Garage
The place I bought mine from has new non abs 2013 asking 7500 .... Anything is negotiable. I am not sure if he told me he had one or a few non abs but the abs I bought was the last one. They told me there wasn't a big market in that area for that type of bike and at some point someone had ordered to many. There is a place on the way there that has new 2013 cbr600rr s but wouldn't budge on 7800. Customer service was better at the Kawasaki dealer. I also learned you can test drive anything they sell but only thing I wanted to try was a snowmobile. I had never seen one in real life lol. I don't know if I can post a business name but let me know if you want theiR info.

Good luck, and use NADA. It's more accurate than kbb. Mileage doesn't really mean shit on a bike.

Cycle Trader is another resource for bike listings, and what the market in your area is really like..... a dealer is generally at least $1500 higher than what they paid for the bike; they need to make a profit to keep the doors open. They can also arrange financing, so they've got a couple of different hooks to put into potential customers.....

The private party sales generally have a payoff to consider -- the newer it is, the more the bank has to say about the price.

As you are looking for a bike that is 'inside' the typical financing window, you are going to be looking at private party prices that are inflated by however much the dealership 'raked' the original purchaser. Local area markup, setup, documentation fees, warranty, service agreements, whatever raised the price, the seller wants to recover as much as possible. That drives the price to a point where financing the thing becomes the typical process again.

Your 6.5K would be a decent deal for a cash price, for a private party looking to unload a bike in a short time (duress). If this is where you want to stay with your price point, expect some shady stuff to occur.

Remember 3 years is also long enough that quite a few maintenance actions should have taken place that probably won't have been done. If it's a really low mileage bike, the OEM tires are really 4 years old. Brake fluid is almost certainly the stuff the factory put in there..... how many times has the battery been left completely flat? Has the fuel evaporated out of the tank?

Lots of things that you can get dinged on, with this sort of thing....

I do check nada but like I said I use KBB (you'd be surprised how many people us KBB on criagslist list) I find a lot of riders say use NADA but when it comes time to exchange money people always mention kbb. As a consumer why would you want to use something that on average values higher. And mileage means a lot, it will really hit your resale, esp on a bike that's already about to be three years old.

Hey, yeah I'm just a sucker for a deal (my half asian side) lol. I bought my cbr for a steal and there were no hidden. Issues except it needing the clutch cable adusted and the throttle was getting stuck just had to re-seat the grip. I see the best prices have been on this forum esp after sandman tells em to rethink their asking price (thank you sandman lol)

But basically I'd be paying cash, no tax if out of state, not interested in paying frieght, or setup fees and processing fees. Your making a sale you should be delighted to do the paper work. Lol.
