Selling Guide

Preparing your motorcycle

It's worth spending time preparing your motorcycle for sale - research has shown that sellers consistently get a higher price for a well prepared bike. Give it a good clean and polish.

Touch up any stone chips (paint touch up sticks are cheap and readily available).

Fix minor faults and replace missing badges, check the oil level and tyre pressures.

Finally gather together all related paper work in readiness: MOT certificate, service book and V5C. If you have any old receipts for work done it's worth collecting these together as well - they help reassure the buyer that you are an organised individual who has taken care of the motorcycle.
