The Ultimate Mechanical Checklist to Sell a Motorcycle Yourself
If you are having trouble trying to sell a used motorcycle, could it be because you aren’t considering what a buyer is looking for. If someone is looking to buy a used motorcycle, they likely aren’t going to buy your bike at the get-go. If your motorcycle can’t pass a buyer inspection, you will have a tough time closing the deal.
The first step to sell a motorcycle is to make sure you are setting realistic expectations as far as the quality of the machine. Give it a thorough inspection and do your research to make sure you are pricing it according to fair market value, not just the blue book value. The most important thing to keep in mind, though, is what a buyer is looking for.
What a buyer wants to inspect isn’t just the look and feel of the motorcycle. This goes all the way down to the nitty-gritty details, the fine print, the ins and outs of the bike: also known as the mechanical integrity.
To help you make sure you are covering all the bases here is a checklist of mechanical items that some buyers use to inspect on site. With this list, you can examine every area a buyer will likely pay attention to and make sure everything is in tip-top shape. That way, you know you are selling an all-around great machine that is worth the price.
