Thinking of selling but there's little to no inventory in the Northeast for comparison. There's nothing besides junk out there on FB marketplace, fleabay, CL, ATVtrader etc...

Dont recall ever seeing such a shortage in the spring season.... is this everywhere? it makes setting fair pricing difficult....

some folks like the e-start.... sure wish they had reverse like the 400ex.... but it's made for racing.....

Listed it yesterday for $7999 which is about what I've got into it.... already turned down a $5k offer.... interesting times indeed....

Priced too high, you should have so many $5k offers in the first night that you are sick of $5k offers.
Potential buyers all have their different lines of BS, it's just a game don't let them get to you. You have to talk to these people. The more the better.

Same for cars.

The trade in value on my car 3 months ago with 11k miles was $21k.

Today it's $28k with 13k miles.

Don't know what's going on.

My gf vehicle loan has $15k left on it. Trade in is $18k today.

Something strange in the used car and truck market.

$3k to fix?? Quad was only worth $2,000...lol
Looks like it just needed some welding on the frame!
Yeah, if it were mine then that's what would have happened.
But it belonged to my Cousin's wife and the right thing to do was to have their local dealer fix it to their satisfaction.
I had no idea it would be close to $3k when I agreed with that logic!
I want to say $2600+. Replacement frame and a bunch of little things that got replaced as well.

Never race around on anybody's machine but your own.

Out in the field
the hardon people have for two stroke dirtbikes right now is nuts
Where ever I ride my '78 DT250, someone always has to tell me how they had one back in the day, and they wish they still had it. Happened just this weekend.
The KTM300 two stroke I had at the house this week was titled and licensed. Put some street tyres on it, gear it up a bit, and your license would be gone in a month.
