which would likely sell for more?

Post  RobbySkateboard on Wed Jul 03, 2013 5:36 pm

I'm certainly not getting rid of my xr650r so don't worry. I currently have my xr650r (plated) and a drz400s (comes from factory with plate of course) and saw on craigslist a guy who was willing to trade his 2001 R with California plate for a smaller bike, specifically a drz400s. Both the 01r and my 02s are clean and I would say equal in terms of wear (or lack their of), cleanliness, amount of/type of riding and equally well maintained. The 01 is bone stock (as far as I can tell, he didn't make any mention of anything in the ad) and my 02s has a 3.7 gallon tank on it, wide foot pegs, rejetted, 3x3 airbox mod, installed a kickstarter on it and I think that's it. If I were to do this trade would I be making a good deal? I'm eventually going to put the drz on craigslist, but if I could get more money by trading and then putting the xr online that would be the preferred route obviously. Thanks for your opinions.

that's my biggest fear, hahaha. I have had both the big and the drz for the past 4 months or so and have no reason to sell the drz so haven't. I don't use the drz though so I figured if I'm getting a good deal, I'll trade the drz for the xr and then if I need to sell it I will, but I don't need extra money so don't mind having a spare bike. I like the idea of having another brp in case something happens to something on my bike, then I have easily accessible spares, not that anything would go wrong with my R, but it would be comfortable knowing I have a secondary one. I would only do it if I was getting the better end of the deal though, like say I did suddenly run into some money problems and had to sell a bike, which would fetch me the most money back?

Have a look around , what is for sale and compare the prices , sorry i can not help you because i am not expert in California market , over here those two bikes are priced closely , but of course i am talking bikes in a comparable condition . I think that having a spare piggy could be great as a good source of spare parts ( it works out so much cheaper to buy whole pig now than buying the parts from honda , for example you can have whole bike for the price of a frame from honda listen up  ) .
