best places to list a bike for sale

Looking to sell the Ninja 1000k, I have it listed on Cycletrader, Craigslist, and sport-touring.net, any other sites that have good traffic for this type of bike?

facebook marketplace, letgo, absolute last resort Ebay. Wait a couple months till tax returns hit and weather warms and it will go much faster for more money.

Ask everyone you know to spread the word. Unlikely but card on Grocery store bulletin boards. Local private motorcycle shops if they have sale board.
Patience and persistence matter.
One of my friend imploded (complex psychological meltdown). He bought 14 motorcycles. Another friend managed to sell them off. Took almost a year.


Is there a Kawasaki forum for this bike? You can try dealer consignment sale but it costs you.

Many on this board don't see the correlation.


That said, when I was in the market for my first street bike I spent months looking. Went to 2 different Honda dealers in 2 different counties that were closing and trying to sell off new and used inventory at a "discount". Went out to see a bike listed in the newspaper first day. By the time I got there it was in somebody else's pickup. I was searching 2 different newspapers when an XS 650 showed up for a reasonable price.
The Phone # was local. When my Dad got home from work I told him we needed to check out another motorcycle, having grown weary of the search himself he asked "Are you going to pay for the gas this time?" "Absolutely" I said. He asked "Where is this bike?" "The next road over" I replied.

Advertise locally, but be extra careful about people looking to locate bikes to steal.

Our local dealer does consignment sales. The percent he gets more then makes up for it.
