I say go ahead and just send it with the seat cover and leather tank cover.

Otherwise $5.00.

Reality though you should have kept all the stock plastic if you are selling since you are going to lose your ass if you bought the good CF. Or another option to make up some cash is you could see if someone wants to trade stock plastic and $$$ for the CF then sell the bike.

I would say even with all the CF and mods you will probably only get $500 over a stock bike that has the same miles and condition. I would say you are looking around $4800-$5200. If your CF is the cheap Eay stuff drop $300 off the price.

The market is weak for 2 wheel awseomeness! I recently bought a 09 haarley Fat bob and wanted to trade in my 06 xb12Ss, I told them Miliege was about 10,00 and in great condition and they offered me 2000$ without even looking at the bike. The dealer said he had four new ones that are two years old and brand new for next to nothing so why would he give me anything for a trade in. He'd be taking a loss.

I did not trade it in and had to make a larger down to keep the payments low. I suggest keeping the bike unless you really need the money.

It might help if you put a link up to your bikes pics so people could see it. Maybe someone would make you an offer.

I'm glad I kept mine! My bike is worth a lot more than 200$ to me!

I think Xtreme's price is pretty close. Unfortunatly, when people buy buells, they want to but it stock so they can mod it themselves. I think if you were to plan the sale and sell your after market stuff separately, and replaced it with stock stuff, you could make more money. That race pipe is worth the most $$$

I've got black '04 plastics I'd trade up for some Carbon Fiber action.

don't listen to stealers BS. they will low ball you without any shame. thats why its pay back time, they cant even sell one bike a day in most dealers now. specially Harley dealers. their stock is declining by the day.
