Did you try a personal/unsecured loan? It will have a higher interest rate but you'll have title in hand so you will have more flexibility on your insurance and can maybe cover the cost of the higher interest rate.

I did it with my last bike and saved a lot of money actually. Plus it makes life easy if you decide to sell since you have title in hand.
I believe in luck. The harder I work the more luck I seem to have.

talk to patrick.....he has a company he uses for used bikes....but you gotta remember, bikes are considered to be "recreational", therefore interest rates will be higher.

Credit Unions are usually a good place to try. Interest rates are outrageous for motorcycles from most sources.

GE money bank will finance anyone ( and its a credit card style program so you get title in hand as well and don't need to keep insurance on it.
their rates are outrageous but they do 1 year at 0 percent and stuff a lot but in order to qualify you have to adhere to the terms (usually you have to apply and purchase during a certain period). They normally only give you up to $5000 through that though, so for a 1000cc you'd be cutting it pretty close, and its only valid at dealers that take funancing (though it seems that most do anymore).

You could also try to qualify for suzuki/honda/yamaha whatever credit cards, most dealers will accept these towards used bikes they have. but then you'll probably be overpaying since used bikes at dealers are way too much.

this company called sparta commercial will finance just about anyone, their rates are retarded high (25% I think?) and you have to put 10% down, and you would need to give them title and keep insurance on it, and they are mostly for new or near new (within 2 years old I think) bikes. But with a rate like that you'll pay far more than its worth (like paying 15,000 for a 9000 bike).

dude dont do GE money bank Ive had a horror story with them...I got my bike from stubbs on the SE side...another guy there was about to buy it so I just went with GE (Funancing) and the interest rate was 20%+, I I go home and call my rep. at Texas Dow Employees Credit Union...and refinance it a wk I go to do the payoff, and GE gives me the payoff amnt. and I told them that im doing a 20 day payoff, well they forgot to tell me that another credit charge will be added by the time the payoff check gets there, so I pay another 200 out of pocket. This whole time the title still hasnt been transferred to my CU. Even AFTER I payed the full payoff amount, it took them 3 months to get the title transferred...


Go to a CU if you can.
