    Have a Yamaha R6 to trade.

    Hey folks. Looking to downsize my 2000 R6 to a TW. 17k miles spirited bike that was the personal bike of one of the yamaha of camp hill mechanic's. I low sided it 3 seasons ago to avoid being ran over lol. The frame slider took the brunt of it, no impact, and there's a rash on the nose and tail cowls about the size of a silver dollar.

    You're probably not going to get any bites on the R6. We're mostly a bunch of old slow riders around here. We like to see the scenery before it blurs by us.

    Sounds like a nice bike. The TW is a great low maintenance bike. I have right at 45,000 miles on mine and it is going strong.

    Yea it's in great shape minus a little cosmetics. But the pics are recent. I can't have another toy. Do i have to sell and buy or trade.

    The world’s your oyster as far as that goes – sit tight and see what happens

    It would help if you had a sale price - but with a trade that would still be negotiable between the two people concerned - (and you can include your location on your profile)

    Take a look at these two threads – the first one is the colour schemes by year, the second is the things that changed (other than the cosmetics)

    Just a straight trade for a TW? Did you knock you head during this crash? Seems like a bad deal on your end, but to each his own I suppose.


    Where are you located?
    [edit: Google says Camp Hill is in PA]
    [edit #2: Craigslist says sportbikes hold their value about as well as used matches, so their value is not as dissimilar as I thought]

    Nice bike.

    Both my son's have owned R6's, and they were waaaaaay toooooo fast for me. Judging by all the safety wiring, this bike has seen some track time.

    Good luck with the sale or trade, and I hope you find a TW of your liking.

    Posers add the safety wiring stuff to try and fool nonbikers into thinking it's a road legal race bike. I've had to stop calling out the youngsters around here on it. I was almost forced to defend myself because of it.
