It's an r6s I'd never buy it period, you would almost have to give it away. That and paint are a no go.

Hey Myla if I'm correct its GP shift and on some Yamaha models to change Standard to GP shift pattern it can no longer go through the frame thus uses an adapter, that's what I had to do on my r1.

As for the bike its OK. Unfortunately the way it is and I know its got a few aftermarket upgrades but a non titled streetbike with track fairings you'll be lucky to get 3k. Most people on here have decent knowledge of what a good Yamaha track bike 600 is and its the R6r not the R6s. If you truly don't have a title I'd repaint it one color (black or red or Yamaha blue) and sell it as a starter track bike. GLWS

If you rode it, you wouldn't say that.

Actually, I'm not interested in the difference. I don't really recall seeing an ad where anyone sell an R6S has specified -" Hey, just so you know, this is a pos r6 S". You are a track racing expert. I will assume you are way beyond the edge of this bike. So - that being said - I will assume you are way beyond any stock R6R. I'n not really looking for the "track value assessment". I'm saying, based on what I see for sale, this bike is worth more than just a couple thousand. Like buying a house in ClearLake. Those things are and going for $50K more than they are worth. But the market and location determines the price.

Market comparisons - I think this bike is better than a lot of them that are going for $5000 range a little.

HOWEVER ! ! ! !
I value these opinions because mostly you know what you're talking about. I just buy and ride. I am being convinced little by little.

Compared to other R6 (whatever, R6, R6R, R6S)

The bike is 2008. There was a small off-set bracket (yellow arrow) added to the rearset to accomodate the GP shift. Flipping the lever to the top made it impossible to put the shift rod behind the frame. You can see that it used to be behind the blinker fluid bottle. A 2" extension (red arrow) was added, but you can barely make it out in this picture.

Completely agree. I do custom paint and people always thing there bike is now work a grand more, but the truth is, even though it looks good, it's only what they wanted. The next buyer doesn't like it and in a lot of cases it actually drops the value.

I just can't accept that there are beat to 250's going to $3k and this is much more of a bike. So, I guess I need it drubbed into my head.

It appears there is sentimental value on the bike too based on your responses..... the bike is 6....going on 7 years old. It has aftermarket plastics and lots of track goodies. Others mentioned the idea of people seeing it as a ragged out, possibly laid down bike already... you have it priced like an all original 2500 mile prestine bike....and it's not. You will never recoupe aftermarket stuff....on anything...car, truck or motorcycle.

It is worth what it will sell for. Honestly I think it is just a bad time of year. Track season is pretty much over in a month and a half. Early spring it will probably sell quick.

Its a track bike, so the "value" or suitability for the track IS important.

No matter how well your bike is set-up, virtually all track riders/racers are still going to be looking for "RR" or "R" models.

$2500-$3000 MIGHT attract someone looking to try out the sport.

You asked for opinions, I wasn't gonna say anything but...
Yamaha makes two bikes called R6. It's confusing to noobs but maybe that's why Yamaha did it.
In general conversation when moto people talk about an R6 they mean R6R but casually shorten it.
IMHO, it's disingenuous to call an R6S just R6.
Since an R6 is the more desirable of the two, a clarification to avoid confusion would be appropriate.
That's why I would hesitate to buy it. I would have concerns you were trying to take advantage of me if I were inexperienced.
No offense, I'm sure that's not the case but that's what raised my eyebrows.

You asked and got honest answers (i.e. 1FC), yet you protest.

Calling that an R6 is like calling a GSX600F a GSXR600. Not the same.

It is worth a track bike value at $2K, only because its cheap for a beginner to wad.

Don't like then answers, don't ask the question.

Its a R6S. Not desirable.

What it comes down to, anyone who knows better doesn't want old technology. I was going to buy a 800 mile 2011 250 ninja for $2500 until it came close to doing the deal. I started looking at 300's and realized a good one could be had for $3500. I ended up not buying a bike at all. Now we have the R3 coming out next year. So I'll wait. Couple of years ago I decided to sell my 98 Katana 750. Its was in great shape but I sold it for $1200 to friend. He needed something to commute on and and a back up for 70k mile FJ 1200. I was happy to get the $1200 because I know what the market is on that bike. But I miss that bike, only bike I had that I felt comfortable taking down to the Kroger and didn't worry about. Imo, you need to come down to $2500 and be willing to take less.

I would never buy an R6. I am on my second R6 's' but I am sixty years old. I have only met one person who could get the most out of an R6 and he loved my last R6's'.
