Thinking about selling my 2016 Fz07

Recommended Posts

duenan
So may I ask why everyone is selling all of their fz07's so quickly after buying them?!?! Im planning ahead and will be buying the 2016 armor grey/hi viz green model, and have already bought some gear to match it, and im just a little nervous now because everyone seems to be getting rid of theirs.... I have sat on one and its super nice as far as I can tell without a legit T&E..... Any info???
Motorcycles are a very personal thing for many. The characteristics, fit, looks. These all factor in in ways a car do not. A car has adjustable seat, steering, and all that. The motorcycle in most cases, you get what you get.  You cannot get a true feel for a bike until you rack up some miles on it.  Sitting on a bike in a showroom doesn't give you everything you need.  How the bike feels when you lean onto it.  The suspension.  Everything is a small nuanced detail which you need to experience.  Some things you can correct with money if you need to (such as the suspension) but many things you probably can't correct if it isn't a great fit. You can go two ways if you feel the bike doesn't fit you well.  If you have money, you can just buy another bike.  But for many, it requires selling the current bike so they can find the next bike to see if it fits.
Yeah, I never understood this prior to owning a motorcycle but I do get it now.  Especially after owning 3 bikes, all the characteristic differences.  The weight of the bikes.  The way your knees grip the tank.  The ergonomics.  Way too many individual things that make a bike feel like you love it or if you need a different one.

I've had mine for 1+ year now and I don't have plans to sell it anytime soon! I do have plans for her to keep "dressing" like she deserves, problem is there are so many "outfits" out there that you easily run out of cash!

I wouldn't let people selling their bikes deter you. I wrecked mine and pursuing a second 07 as a replacement. I also want the hi viz model.

sell me ur bar end mirrors!!!!!!!!!!!!!! let me know pm!!! Your better off selling stock, cause the mods dont add value if u going dealership type and at times only get a few extra bucks worth, not where u think the bike should be priced at.

Thinking about selling my Fz07 already. What do you guys think I should ask for it? 2016, less than 500 miles, never dropped, no damage, Akropovic Ti exhaust, power commander 5, Woodcraft clip ons, motodynamic integrated tail light, yoshimura fender eliminator, oxford led front signals, brake fluid resevoir relocation, driven bar end mirrors. Painted matte black with blurple wheels and frame. Not sure how to price this.
 
If you're gonna remove stuff to sell, i'd be interested in the akro exh

Haha nice thanks. I thought it would be more of a significant change - I can barely tell the difference. Looks good either way!
Well, it used to be the 2016 silver color with blue front fender so it was a big change for my bike. But yes, it is very similar to the 2015 dark grey. In fact I looked at pictures of the dark grey before deciding the matte black haha.
 
 
Hey man! Read that you don't use your baffle for your akrapovic titanium system! Wanting to see if I can grab it off you?
 
Let me know, thanks!

HAHA! Forgive the analogy but this is like watching a pack of ravenous zombies swarming a lone fat tender baby cooing on a serving platter. Love it.
 
......The bike made me write it. ;)
