I Ride: 2013 ZX6R
Thinking of letting her go.... My ZX6R that is
As it is soon to be riding season again, and as I didn't have many winter projects this year I haven't posted up in a while. I am stuck at a cross roads between letting go of my 2013 ZX6R or not.
In short, I fell into the trap that many of you call track days. I rode 7 days last year (6 at MidOhio and 1 at PittRace) and hope to do at least 10 this year. Mid Ohio, PittRace, VIR, and Summit Point are on my list for this year. With that being said, I didn't ride on the road much last year, and didn't have much fun when I did. I don't live in the country anymore so getting to somewhere fun to ride takes a bit of time. So now that it is soon to be spring (selling season) and the time for me to re-up my insurance, I again consider selling my bike.
Although my wife has an attachment to the ZX6R, I have financially spent more money on both my track bike (07 GSXR) and ZX6R then either are worth. At the end of the day, it would make more sense to sell the ZX6R. Considering I just bought that GSXR last winter, rebuilt it, and just bought a used suspension set up.
I also believe I am reasonable when it comes to selling my previous bikes. I am not the guy who we commonly see on craigslist wanting $6,000 for a 20,000 mile 2006 R6 Raven Edition. I don't think I would see $6,000 for my 13 ZX6R.
So after drawing the story out, I ask. Do you guys think it would be beneficial for me to sell some of the parts in this forum or the WERA Forum vs leaving them on the bike as is.
Here is what it has:
9,8xx Miles and was not laid down or (Tracked..... Although I thought about it.)
RaceFit Exhaust (Growler Cut Short)
Black Widow Stainless Steel Decat Headers
New EBC Double H Pads
Driver Block Off Plates
Spiegler Stainless Steel BrakeLines (White)
MSM Adjustable Levers
Driver 520 Silver Chain
-1 + 2 Driver Sprockets
Lust Racing Lowering Links
Double Bubble Dark Smoke Windscreen
Custom Works LED Integrated Tail Light
Shogun Frame Sliders
Driven Axle Block Sliders
Took off Factory Decals to Add the ones you see instead.
The problem would be the ECU flash, as timing was changed. So I would have to look for a stock ECU, as I don't want to pay to have it set back to normal.
I figure where I live and the market, I could get between $4800 and $5000 for this bike come spring. I honestly don't believe I would get much extra if I parted out some of the aftermarket stuff since it isn't suspension or breaks. but figured I would ask your opinion.
