Default Cycletrader or ebay motors?

     

Anybody sold a bike on either cycletrader or ebay motors? I'm trying to decide which one to put my KX up for sale on. Cycletrader sounds good because it runs until it sells. I just want to get it sold as soon as possible. Any opinions on either of these options?

If you want to sell it asap, ebay is the way to go, and they charge $30.00 to list the bike, and $30.00 if it sells above your reserve price if you set one. Run it for seven days, or shorter if you would like is definately the fastest way to sell it.

Yeah that's kinda what I was thinking, a seven day auction would be pretty quick.

No help on this, sorry.
What bike would you be looking for if yours is sold?

Heya Raf what's up!

Ken...we tried selling Ima's TTR through cycle trader, and did not have much luck. The problem with cycle trader imo is there are SO many bikes in there, and it is not organized very well. It can be hard to find something.

With that said...I have never tried selling a vehicle/bike through ebay. Ima sells a bunch of other stuff through ebay though, and loves it.

Great choice going to a thumper man! But ride the YZ250f before you get a CRF250, after riding a pipe crf, the stock yamaha still feels to have a considerable amount more power.

I've bought and sold a few misc. things on there, but nothing major like this, so we'll see how it goes.

Well I'm leaning more toward the Honda because that's what everyone's been telling me I should get since I started talking about selling my bike (months and months ago!) but yeah I kinda like the YZ250F too.

I was going to list my YZ in the cycle trader until I saw the ad cost. $35 for 3 weeks another $30 to run it for another 3 weeks, or $79 to list until it sells. It used to be $45 to list until it sold. I would find your model of bike on Ebay in an area near you so you can get an idea as to what people are willing to pay before listing it on Ebay. People may not be willing to come close to your bottom price. I had that problem on Ebay with my KTM.

Try your AMA districts web site. On district 23 (MN) site you can list your bike for free. And people that know about the AMA site are real buyers.

Here is what I am talking about

That would be a nice choice for you sir! We are going to sell the TTR too. Jack was leading his class I am told by about 8 minutes going into check two and threw the chain off in a rocky section. We just need a bike more suited to racing the dez. His bike runs really good though with the jetting and airbox mod I have done to it. I also geared up 2 teeth in the front to a 15 t counter shaft sprocket.

Ebay is great in my experiance.

I have sold my '99 yz250, my '98 banshee, and my 2000 V-max on e-bay and everytime got more then I asked for for them.

It has alot to do with how your present your add to the public, and using keywords in the title to get the most attention for your bike.

I always would look at other peoples auctions first, and go from there using some of everyones ideas and incorporating them into my add.

It worked VERY well for me.
