    Spunky U.jpg BMW bars 5 U.jpg 2016 R1200RS with 1,400 pampered miles. I've installed a Spiegler "C0-2" traditional handlebar (GPS bracket removed - but very easy to re-install) the ergo's are similar to a R1200R but with a bit more height and pullback. This bike has had an easy life, I don't rev it high - and I've only used the "shift Modes Pro" a few times. Comes with oil change kit (just about time for it) with two filters and oil. I am asking $15,500.00.

    Would you be better putting the stock parts back on and selling the bike in original specification? Original spec = 1 careful owner and of interest to the old fart demographic that like the RS.
    Tricked out second hand bike with performance mods = converted and thrashed by shade tree mechanic to be avoided at all costs or bought at huge discount.
    You can then sell the upgrades separately on this site to a host of performance thirsty enthusiasts.

    All that bike needs now is an ecu reflash and it would go like hell, and now the inevitable question, what are you getting next?

    I agree with Oscar that the best way to get the price you are looking for is to return it to stock/sell the "performance" parts separately. Yes, lots of folks might install exactly the same items on a new bike but would not buy a bike with those items installed by a seller, fearing the seller might have "abused" or raced/tracked the bike. OTOH, if the bike looks new/untouched, there are no questions. The luggage is a good thing but anything that modifies the bike can create a question in a buyer's mind.

    Unless a buyer knows you personally/is comfortable with you or whoever did the work and wants exactly what you have done to the bike, mods reduce the value of the bike and reduce number of people interested. The luggage is fine; it's the other stuff...

    Braap! you can always try to sell it as is and if it does not sell for what you will accept then return it to stock and sell the mods separately.

    I agree with the others who note that buyers are cautious about powertrain performance mods added by others, and for me, it cause a value reduction as opposed to an increase. In other words, to a buyer like me, a well kept stock bike would have more value than that same bike with powertrain performance bits added. I said "powertrain" because a bike with Ohlins (or similar) suspension upgrades, or upgrades that are not related to the powertrain, could command a better price.

    Good luck with the sale.

    Sorry to hear that medical bills are leading to this but that is understandable in this country.

    When you installed those bars did you have to change the cabling at all?

    Are the stock cables long enough?

    You'll have to re-route the hydraulic clutch line, simple enough - but involves removal of the tank and (left side) radiator shrouds.

    You did it right — I was out of town and not checking the forum. I’ve replied to your message. Thanks very much.
