first line throws me off "08 with 05 plastics"

if it hasn't been wrecked, why does it have 05 plastics?

I can look past the paint...

This. And looks like a scuff on the case slider.

A clean title means NOTHING as far as not being wrecked. Wreck on a track? Without insurance? Without Full coverage? Without license? Not wanting a salvage title? All perfectly "good" reasons to not claim an accident. that bike simply has so much done and geared towards track, that people will ASSUME it's been wrecked or ragged on HARD. Despite mileage.

Personally, i'd leave the blue and paint the other portions something. Simplify it, but don't bother painting the WHOLE bike. That is, if it's worth it to try to get more money out of a bike you already have trouble selling.

Conventional:
not conventional. Those are inverted or USD forks. What is on your r6S is conventional

I'm going to change the paint for sure . . . .
I could see this bike for someone who cant afford a "higher end" track bike, whos not sure how long theyll do track for, or just wants to ride around dragging knee having fun but not going crazy fast. Im not saying your bike is worthless, but I dont see it selling at the 3500 point. 2500ish maybe a tiny more or less is what the bike should be priced at. Id price it at 2700 and go from there.

One more thing, they may not be just only 2005 fairings. They may be 2008 r6"s" track fairings. Just a thought not 100% sure

The S model is basically a replica of a 5 year old R model. So the 06, 07 and 08 S models are just a newer built version of the 01, 02, 03R models.

Not for this bike. And even if I had hundreds of offers - that person was in no way capable of surviving on a bike.

This is all good stuff. I'm getting a feel for the environment. Knowing what's controversial is good. Also, I'm not a dishonest seller because I have other business interests in the bike world.

By saying certain things in my ad, I am not intentionally trying to rip off a buyer. I'm a rider. Not a mechanic or bike guru that knows the impedance on the #2 sparkplug wire of the 89 Ninja Z10.

I've seen bikes for sale with 1 pic and minimal information for more money, ya know the "Must Sale" kind, and they are selling. I don't disagree with any of the comments. This is still a very very nice bike. It has extras. I'm not parting with it because it's a POS.

Seems that the general consensus is that the colors make people puke. I haven't read any comments stating that anything on it is junk. Some things are not top of the line race items, but there's nothing less than stock.

I'm not really trying to sell it as a track bike even though it's mainly set up that way. It is street legal and inspected. It just needs someone to use the good stuff it has before it rots in my garage.

I guess conventional vs inverted forks is a subjective term.

I stand corrected.
I've had:
3 GXSR's (2 liter, 1 600)
1 636
2 Zx6
3 CBRs (1 liter, 2 600)
1 1972 CB350

All with forks in the same direction - apparently they were all inverted.


This cleared it all up in my little pea brain.

This R6 is the only one I've had this way and all the photos of 2008 R6's that I looked at are also "inverted".

So this one has standard forks. I'll knock of another $2500. Actually, because the forks are standard I'll pay $5000 to someone to take the bike off my hands....... wait - um....... not.

Okay, so you guys have the forks figured out...what's up with the rod for the gear shifter? My 05 R6 has it going through the frame, yours seems to be on the outside (whatever year it is, your bike...)

If the shiny part of the fork is at the bottom, they're inverted. This is how Honda describes the forks on the CBR

lol if you want to know the difference between the 2008 r6 and 2008 r6s

The suspension/forks obviously which affect handling, inverted forks
slipper clutch
motor is different, the r6s motor is from previous years not the nice motor in the normal 2008 r6
the brakes are also different, the normal r6 has better braking power also
the r6s model is more similiar to the 03-05 r6
man i cant think of too much right now, im loading for the track :/
