I've got a computer-illiterate friend who has decided to sell his 2000. We were out for a toot tonight and he was asking me what I thought it was worth, and I told him I would pose the question to the masses of ZX-12.org...

It's red, it's a Canadian model (no KLEEN system), it's got 8500km (5300 miles), extended warranty through fall 2004, super clean shape, and it's pretty much bone stock.

He's got a friend in the U.S. who's interested in the bike, and has asked my buddy to come up with a "fair" price. Alas, is $7G's a "fair" price?

I just thought I would look it up in KBB and see what it said. (I thought it sounded fair but just wanted to check.)
If you were to go to the dealership they said if it was less than 15,000 miles it should go for 8795 but this was for an excellent condition the same bike from person to person it had at 6200 but had some mumbo jumbo saying basically if it had less than 15k and was clean (i.e. typical road wear) expect to pay more.
Sonds like to me if it is clean that bike will be sold to the other guy quick, side note bikes on ebay seem to normally go in the 7G range with all sorts of different miles.

Thanks for the input guys... He figured that $7G's was a pretty reasonable price, but now this buyer is starting to flip-flop... Not sure if he can handle a 12... Whatever. With that, does anyone around here know of anyone who might be looking for an '00...?? Would it be better off posted in the Buy and Sell section?

Also wondering if anyone has had any experience with importing a Canadian bike into the U.S.? In the research I have done, my understanding is that all is required to cross the border for the purpose of a sale is a letter from Kawasaki stating that the bike does in fact meet all U.S. motorcycle regulations (which the Canadian models do...), and the only thing that will need to be changed in order for the new owner to safety it in his or her state is the speedo faceplate - from km/h to mph...

Anyone else got anything to add?

I imported mine when I bought it new in 2000.
Will the bike be shipped or delivered?

hey Scoot...

Probably shipped, but possibly delivered (if buyer happened to be from a state relatively near to Ontario...) - are there different processes depending how the deal is done?

Any insight you have would be appreciated...

Art - You might be able to buy with a warranty attached to it.

Seems fair but check to see if the warranty is valid in the US. If it is not, travelling to Canada for a major repair would be costly.

Warranty is not good in the U.S. The only way to get the wararanty is if the original owner moved to the states and then it would transfer. The other option is to buy an extended warranty. The dealer that sold me the bike was very good about recalls. He sent whatever I needed.

If you're shipping the bike then you may have to get a broker.
Also they may enforce a duty fee at the border. Some shipping companies have found a way around this. There was a guy selling Suzuki's from Canada shipped anywhere in the U.S. for around $200-300.00 USD. However, if you're going to deliver it, as far as customs is concerned, its your bike and you're just visiting. Of which no duty would apply nor is a broker needed. THe broker is just there to sign the paperwork for you in your absence. (To the tune of approx $150.00 USD!)

This is what you do... If you find a buyer in the States you ride the bike over if it's too far in the U.S. for you to go tell him you will meet him one mile south of the boarder or so. Exchance the money and title and go about your business. If it is all signed over to him all he has to do is go to the Sec of State and get a plate on it. Simple as that.. No customes no duty, taxes and all of that hassle.. I have seen it done a few times.

Or you can call a bike shop in Ontario tell them you are from the states and ask them do they deliver (they will say yes) and ask what is needed to bring it over.. They will tell you the same thing and you will have an idea drom there..

It's best to be presumed dumb than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt....</p>

You will need a certificate of conformance from Kawasaki which states that the bike conforms to U.S. regs. If the bike is delivered to the U.S. by the current owner there is no duty or taxes. If you are buying the bike privately you do not have to change the speedo / odometer. If a dealer is purchasing the bike then they will have to change the odo. but not a private sale.
FYI. I just purchased a 2001 ZX12R with 3400 kms
( 2100 miles) on it for $10500.00 Can which is $6775.00 U.S. It was perfect when I got it. Full warranty untill next summer. Not one scratch or mark in it. It was also bone stock. I could probably find more here for that price or close. The extended warranty is about $850 Can. for the extra 3 years. Hope this helps....Rizzo

7000.00 U.S dollars with exchange = 7000.00 U.S X 1.50 (to be very conservative) make 10,500 $ Canadian money. Found it very expensive for myself. You should deal it for no more then 9,500 $ Canadian or 6333,33 $ U.S money.
