If you are seelling a Motorcycle so leave the Extra's on or take them off? Would something like a Mustang Seat make the Bike sell faster?

Re:Extra's 2 Years, 7 Months ago  
I can tell you as a salesman at a MC dealer that your extras are worth exactly $0 on trade-in.
No matter how cool your goodies are, they are not exactly what other buyers want so they are valued accordingly.
Some might add about 25% of their price to the value of the bike, others may actually detract value unless you include the stock parts.

Revert your bike as close to stock as practical & sell all the extras separately.
That's the way the pros (and serious hobbyists) do it.

Good luck,

private party selling, yes a certain type of extras will sell the bike faster. as long as the parts/paint is not to taste specific.

trading the bike in....save yourself and keep it.
