2006 R6S









No phone calls for cycle trader add - thoughts/suggestions?

Alright, so I did not post this in the for sale section becuase I am just looking for some thoughts and/or suggestions. I put my bike up for sale on CycleTrader on Tuesday for what I thought was a good starting price, a 2006 Yamaha R6S for $6,500. The weekend is now over and I did not get a single phone call. I would appreciate it if someone would take a look at the add and provide some feedback. Is the price too high, are the pictures bad, anything. I am really surprised as I have been the only owner of the bike and it is in really good condition. Here is the link to the add. Thanks in advance.

Thanks!!!

I think the R6S looks better than the new one.

Thanks for checking it out

I appreciate the replies. I will sit tight for a while and see what happens. I will also list it on Craig's list. Maybe things are slow. The last time I sold a bike about 4 years ago it went really quick on CycleTrader. I will be patient.

Thanks!

yeah, cycletrader doesn't get much these days.

it's all about free sites like craigslist, local forums, and ebay.

ebay and forums

Those are both good ideas. I had not thought about trying to sell the bike on ebay or putting it on the forum. I figured most people on the forum already have what they are looking for. Might as well post it here and try ebay. Thanks for the suggestions.

I put my bike on craigs list last night and I already got 2 responses that sound like scams. IE people overseas wanting to purchase sight unseen for "someone" here in the states. rolleyes. I prefer to deal with someone in person.
