    2008 with ~ 9K miles

    Hey guys and gals,

    I'm thinking about selling my 2008 and I was wondering what a fair asking price is? It has just over 9K miles on it. I've replaced the leaky base gasket and installed the kickstarter from Stadium Yamaha. Its got front and rear cycleracks. I installed an o-ring chain and new sprockets maybe 1K miles ago. Put the slick tires on as well for around town commuting. I know a lot of this is just considered maintenance and doesn't really add to the value. So what do you think its worth?

    I'm in Bellingham, WA if that makes any difference.

    Thanks!

    You could sell it tomorrow for $1,500.00. Wait for June and the "sell today" price goes up to $2,500.00.

    If you feel like talking to lots of people and finding the "right" buyer (in June), I bet you could get $3,000.00+ just because of the add-ons.

    If you have a few weeks, for now, put it on Craigs List ($2,250.00?) without your phone number. Only take email inquiries and respond only to those that don't sound like ax murders. Lots of TW guys troll the internet. Not ALL of them are ax murders.

    Hey Fishguy,

    I can hold off for a little bit, no really hurry for me to sell. Thanks for the input.

    Man, I wish I had the TW back when I lived in Missoula and Sandpoint, it would have been perfect.

    I think a little different about pricing a TW. I don't much care what the model year is but the overall condition is the big selling point with mileage being the advantage or disadvantage. Low miles gets high grades and high miles gets much lower grades.

    My own personal preference would be to stay away from a 2009 with 9,000 miles. This of course depends upon how well maintained it is and how the engine sounds, runs and the condition, condition, condition. Under 2,000 miles on the clock and in excellent condition gets the higher dollars. I want to wear it out myself.
