Default How much should I offer for this K5?

Found a k5 fully faired black on black frame, looks clean, 30k on the clock. It's on for 2395, how much is a reasonable offer? I offered 2k and it was declined, what's your opinions??

Some food for thought.....

One of my mates just bought a K3 pointy 'S' from someone on here,33k not mint, has some minor accident/drop damage, no history, months MOT-ish.......he paid 1250.

So bare in mind the one you're looking at is 2 years newer, slightly less miles, assuming it is mint/very clean, 2350 isn't too much.

I take it this is on ebay, before making offers, I would definitely go and view the bike/hpi check too. And, if it's listed with By It Now, with Best Offer, he/she is probably expecting 2200-2250 for it.

Having looked at the prices of lots of bikes when looking for mine, i`d say your 2k offer was about right. They`d be lucky to get that on ebay, but may get it through a private ad.
Personally i wouldnt give any more than 2k, if that, but then i`m a tight arsed jock lol

14 months ago I sold my immaculate 8K mile all black K5S with full fairings and a shedload of desireable extras and all standard bits to Rai86 for the going rate at the time, which was 2800 - They want far too much for the one you've seen.

Glasses Guide says a normal bike should have no more than 2500 miles a year on the clock, so that one is way over mileage, no way is it worth 2395 in a private sale.
