Well, so far so good. I traded my KFX400 tonight and got $3100 for it. The dealer is going to pull the Elka shocks off it for me at no charge and install the stockers, so I got the deal I wanted. The only real parts I thought I could resell and make a little more money was the Vortex ignition, and the PRM bumper and 6 pack rack. I figure I might have gotten a couple hundred $ max, so it wasn't worth the time and effort to sell try and resell them.
The parts guy at the dealer is interested in buying the Elkas for his quad that he races in some amateur races. If that works out, it will be a screaming deal with virtually no headaches.
I think it will come out beyond the $4k I was looking for on the package. Considering I paid $5599 OTD for it 5 years ago, I am happy.
Now here's the catch. I didn't get another quad, I got a Ducati Hypermotard. I guess the rest of dune season will be a little slow in the Rhino, but carving up the twisties will take on new meaning.
I like the deal on the 450R quads from Creamer and HEP. I may have to wait a while now. None of the local dealers seemed to want to get below the $7K mark on the 450R. I can wait for a better deal.
Here is my new ride! Can't wait to pick it up tomorrow.
