Pricing parts on part out?

Recommended Posts

How would one go about an asking price when parting out a DRZ? Obviously some things are fairly simple to price, but others are not. Any tips from those who've done it?

Get list price. Divide in half, continue deducting for scrastches/dents/dings.

Then it becomes a factor of demand. A SM/S exhaust in brand new shape is worth little, an E system is worth more (but not much) due to the larger head pipe. S/SM, late model E cams are near worthless, old style E cams have some good value. OEM speedo is worth about 1/7th new (if low mileage and perfect).

Your best bet is to do a search. See the prices others have done IN YOUR AREA. Some of your stuff will have no value. Look at stuff in the classifieds.

Could also look at fleabay to check what the bits are selling for....

Like William mentioned, It can be a supply verses demand thing, depending on the parts in question ...

DRZ parts aren't worth as much as some other bikes as they are a dime a dozen. Half retail is what the junk yards try for and that is ambitious in most cases. Scanning ebay will give you the best price range. I've bought parts just to have as spares as some prices are dirt cheap. So don't expect to make a lot of money, also figure ebay and paypal will get into your profit.

List some parts here. Rims, forks,motor, speedo will sell fairly quick and those will get the most money. Other stuff may sell pretty cheap.

If you can manage it with the seller, when getting paid, try and get the buyer to send money as a gift. This avoids the paypal fees.
