I don't know squat about CRFX pricing but was planning on doing a bit of research and coming up with something fair. Also, it might be a 2005, need to double check. It's plated/titled as well, saving the new owner the hassle.

[...a momementary pause while pfb does a quick search of Denver Craigslist...]

A super quick search of craigslist shows 250X's going for $3,200-$3,800? Seems like those might be pretty healthy asking prices, I'll check around a bit more.

Folks, I've got a new bike in the garage, and this one has gotta go. I'm only offering it here at this price...

$1000.00 takes it home. This is a killer deal on a killer bike. Less than I paid with the some significant new parts.

2006 Ninja 650 One Owner for $2000 W/6600 MILES

This is NOT a beat all to heck salvage bike! There is NO damage to the frame, radiator, tank (other than the damage I refer to below from adjusting the handlebars too low), engine or any other control surfaces. It has a little dent in the exhaust you can see in the pics from the brake lever being shoved into the side of it. That is the extent of the remaining damage! It has 6600 miles and runs great. It was damaged on the right hand side clutch cover and the right side plastics. Since it was a hit and run I had to repair it out of my pocket so I decided to make it a naked street-fighter style since the plastics are so expensive! It is nothing radical and made custom mounts and used the stock headlight and all gauges and controls. I have customized a small windscreen to cover the gap from the gauges to the headlight so it doesn't look so open. The tank is almost perfect except where some idiot (me) adjusted the handlebars where they hit the tank and put little dimples on both sides where the handlebars hit it. It has a new clutch cover on it as well as a new battery, turn signal, new front Michelin radial tire and other parts. It has $500 worth of new parts in the last few months getting it going again. It still has it's rear fender and such but can be removed if you want a true street-fighter look! My old neck and back means the stock handlebar is still on it as well. Many people put low bars on for a more sporty look and feel! It has aftermarket mirrors which have LED turn signals built into them!

It has been babied and is owned by a 50 year old guy so it still has to be comfortable! One owner and garaged! I also just completed a full oil change and brake fluid change as well. It runs, starts and rides perfect. It is black with a red frame that always draws attention. This is a lot of bike for the price! I just need to get rid of one of my bikes because the garage is overflowing! I will post pictures tomorrow afternoon. If you are serious about a motorcycle this will be a GREAT deal for someone!

NO TRADES! I need the garage space!

I will sell her for $2000 firm. I need the garage space so it must go!

Click on all the pics below to see large pictures taken today!

Depending on how sorted, it might be fair. Most though are less (see link above). Bikefinds is a great website
