Sounds a little high to me, But every market is different and it's worth what someone will pay.

Good luck with the sale. At 13,000 it isn't even broken in yet.

Yeah...

I would ask 9k, and accept a lower offer.

(Not much lower)

That might be a touch high but if you got the valve adjust done you would have a better chance of getting it.

Around here you could get a new 09 in 2010 for 9k.

If I were you I'd sell the windshield and trunk separately. Accessories add nothing to the value of a bike unless they are exactly what the buyer wants on theirs.

I think there is a similar mileage one on here for 8K obo.

Fwiw

I paid $7k for my 2008 in November with 15k on it. It also came with a two bros.pipe, heated grips, peg lowers and taller windshield. I did buy it in Gilroy, CA and I find that bikes go for a little more out here than where I am from in Western New York. I also had to take it in as soon as I got it to have tires put on and the valves adjusted so I am at about $8k.

how much does a valve adjustment cost? Generally speaking...

I could sell the trunk and windshield separately, I suppose.

The trunk is a Givi trunk, and matches the design of the bike.

4-500 bucks for the valves.

Again, it depends on labor rates where you are. I've heard as high as $1000, but that usually includes new plugs, TB sync, etc.

Then it seems that it isn't worth it.

The bike runs as good today as the day I bought it.

I'll probably drop the asking price a little.

Thanks for the head's up, all.

Wout.

As was said, if you take it to a dealer about $500ish. If you are a little mechanically inclined it is not hard to do yourself. The first one I did I had to replace all the shims, it ran me about $100. The second one I did all the shims where fine, I replaced the spark plugs and it ran me about $50. If your going to get another C14 a guy on ZGR fanatics sells a set of how-to videos. They are very good and worth the money, easily. If I was closer I would give you a hand with it.

The only one I've found so far is this: http://www.amazon.com/2008-2013-Kawa...I1NZS98WLDCPB6
The backrest came from custom world. It looks like they don't make that one anymore, here is a link to the one it appears they replaced it with:

They are quite a bit prouder of this one! I paid $174 for mine all in. Some better pictures if you want to try your googlefu:

They're all out of stock. I'm waffling pretty hard on a corbin seat. It would be a good sensible upgrade, but my budget is very tight. Is it seriously worth it to shell out $500(used) for the Corbin? My wifes comfort is a top priority, but I'm close enough I run the risk of not being able to afford the trip itself with that expense. Nothing about this trip is within my comfort zone, the bike is actually a lesser concern than a lot of other issues.

Don't do the trip if that's the case.

It's more along the lines of I'm travelling west with my family who are rabid right wingers and my wife is a rabid left winger. I spent more than a year planning the original trip and have a month to plan this entirely different trip. Before a trip I'm a planning nazi, when I actually get moving I tend to just say ah screw it and do whatever I feel like. I'm just spazzing a bit. We've decided to just do the AST backrest for like $165. If more parts off my other bike sell and we're flush we'll buy just the corbin saddle without a backrest, otherwise this should work.
