Back to stock?

So I am thinking about selling the 919 to help fund a CB1000R. The 919 was my first sport/naked bike and was purchased to see if I liked this type of bike. I had previously rode a Vulcan 800 Classic and dirt bikes as a kid.

I have decided that I love the naked bikes much more than cruisers, and will continue on this path. There is nothing wrong with the 919, I am only looking at the CB1000R because it is new and sparkly. I know that's a pretty lame reason, but it is what it is and I am OK with it. I am not limiting the search to the CB, but that is the front runner right now.

My real question is, do I sell the 919 as it is, or should I take it back to stock and sell the aftermarket stuff separately? Will it make much of a difference in the final tally? The parts I would be thinking about taking off are:

Remus titanium slip-on exhaust
Sato rearsets with passenger pegs
OEM Windscreen

I have all the stock take-offs, so that isn't a problem. I also have a extra set of stock wheels that had intended on powder coating and swapping out, but never got around to doing it.

What is the consensus here?

Sell off the farkles separate. You will make considerably more, and more so since you have the stock parks. Generally, aftermarket parts will not increase the value of the bike much when selling so oftentimes its better to just bring it back to stock.

The OEM windscreen is very hard to find and will sell like hotcakes, even at $100+

Sato rearsets w/ pass pegs will also sell like hotcakes!

The Remus exhaust will also sell but I don't know how long it'll take. It took over a week for a set of Satos to sell (much to my shock).

+1 on the part out. You'll never get the value of the aftermarket parts if you leave them on the bike.

[Trolling] - Have you thought of looking at a Tuono instead of the CB1R? [/trolling]


I was actually looking at getting a CB1R as well, but the price was just too high for not that much of a performance gain over the 919.

A well treated used Tuono will get you many smiles and lots of upgrades, even over a CB1R.

Just sayin'....

Turn it back to stock form is my recommendation.

If the accessories/farkles are that desirable, they should sell like "crazy glue" at a leper colony.

Actually, the Tuono is on the short list. One of my closest riding buddies just picked one up a few months ago and absolutely loves it. We are going to swap bikes for a bit on the next ride so I can get a feel for it... at present the only thing I really know is that it looks pretty cool as it gets smaller in the distance when he is leaving me in the dust.

Don't those have issues with sheared off steering stops. Probably better off with a Superduke.

Part it out, and keep me posted.
I ended up with the majority of Goog's stuff it seems like.

Used to be Red, now it's Green. Open for name suggestions.

+1 for a part out. I am keeping my eyes out for another wrecked 919 all the time. Someone's got to feed the WT zombies!

So did you make money on the last one?

I've thought of doing the same thing to some local bikes here. Just fleabay a bunch of crap.

Yes it turned out to be surprisingly profitable. Between the '06 partout and my PAIR plates it covered all my work/mods in my own 919.

I like the community feel of forums like WT, it keeps the transaction honest and straight forward.

Agreed... that is why the parts will go for sale here. I know I could probably make more on fleabay, but I have got good deals here, so I will do the same.

Time is money. Perception is reality. If you can possibly keep the 919, don't sell it. Can never have too many bikes. This you learn over time. Regret less. Ride more often. Never listen to me.

I bought my 9er expecting it to be a crossover until I can afford a bigger/newer bike. But as long as property taxes and insurance doesn't rape me, I never plan on getting rid of it.
