Trying to gauge Sell price 2016

I am planning on trying to sell my GSXS this spring to move to the Z-H2. I thought this would have been a good platform to go wild on power as it was a GSXR 1k K5 base, but after talking with an engine guy it is too risky.

What do you all think would be a good price for it?

It has $6k in extra with Motor work ($4K), Custom map (fuel, timing-ignition Woolich), Bazazz for fuel and quick shifter, M4 full system, New chain 520, New tires..., Brembo MC & Steel lines, forks spring rate increased.
Actual 160 RWHP

Stock bar and LSL lower bar.


I am thinking of asking 11,000 to try and get between 10k and 11k. (or am I off my rocker)

That's a tough call. You never ever get back what you put into it. It's always harder to sell a bike with mods for more than a new off the showroom bike can be had for. Top that with the fact that these bikes are generally unappreciated by the motorcycle community, and you have to find someone who values what you've done to yours that's willing to pay for it. Not saying you can't get that much for it, but to find that right buyer it will likely NOT be a quick sale at that price. I suppose it all comes down to how much money you are willing to let go of and how quickly you need it gone.

Make sure you put the black side cover back on before advertising
That’s the first thing I noticed just doesn’t look right.
You have a price in mind so just do it and see what happens
this is what I do just go with your gut feelings.

For that much money in the motor (4K) , I would think it would be making way more than 160 rwhp. What did they do to the motor?

Sorry dude. Sounds like a nice bike, but you'd have to find a very special buyer to get 10K out it. Most people will value your mods as a straight trade off as stock, if your lucky. You would be better off selling the non-stock parts separately, and reducing your asking price. Either way, 11K is off your rocker, but like I said, if you find the very special buyer, they might be off their rocker too. Good Luck and report back on how it goes.

I mean, what the heck, you never want to start too low unless you need it gone now. Start at what you want, then if you don't get bites, lower the price. It's easier to come down in price than up. The market will dictate whether you are too high or not. Eventually you'll either get to a price people want to pay, or you'll just decide to keep it.

Hey Reagan I was thinking the same.
My bike stock on the dyno is putting out near 154hp.

At the end of the day it's a 4y/o bike and your asking close to what a brand new bike will cost, like someone said before you're going to need a special buyer. Even still that buyer will not want to pay dollar to dollar what you put in too it. You have to figure your going to take a hit on those mods, to answer your question the book value on a 2016 is about $ 7000 and that's the high side. With all your mods you might get $8500 if your lucky and find the right guy

Your other problem is leftovers. You are selling a 2016 but someone can pick up a leftover 2018 right now for $7000 brand new right now isn't going to help you much.

Yeah I agree the more I thought about I highly doubt I will get anymore than maybe $8k if I am lucky. Yeah I didnt' realize leftovers were going for so cheap.. The black tank covers have been reinstalled. I threw the seat on it to get a pic of it after the orange wrap was done. I also have the lower, but man it looks like crap with the lower.

I know every Dyno is different and this bike Dynoed at 160 on the same Dyno my 2009 Race GSXR 1k stock motor with race fuel and map dynoed at 174. On a pump gas and map it dynoed at 169. (these are the numbers I compared it to and how the bike feels)

The motor work was SERTI valve job, Mill of the head & Thinner head gasket to increase compression about 13.0:1, along with a GSXR K5 Intake cam. Honestly on the same Dyno I doubt before motor work it would have pulled maybe 140. This bike really didn't have the oomph I thought it would. It wasn't even close to the feel of my GSXR K6s I had. It was ok in 1st gear, but after shifting to 2nd it had no getup, and the hesitation coming out of a corner hard in 2nd around 5k rpm was sad. It is possible I just got a under performing motor from the factory....
