When I sold my FZ6 4 years ago, I had it on CL, Cycletrader and other advertising venues for about 9 months. I ended up selling it for less than half of what I had originally listed the bike for. It was a slow and painful process with a lot of people wasting my time and then hitting me with ridiculously low ball offers. Be patient, the right buyer is out there. You just haven't hit an attractive enough price point yet to get the offers.

think that price is a good one considering the miles...I wouldn't go lower...tough time of year to sell...shouldn't be but usually those looking for a bike usually begin looking in the spring...never know tho...good luck.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!
