All great advice, however I don't like using any book as a guide. The market will set the price.
Like others have said, think of a base price of what is a reasonable price (for you) of the bare bike, and add the costs of accessories that you like.
For me, the below listed accessories would appeal to me, so I'd add probably 5-600 to the stock bike price I have in mind.
Lindeman Fork springs
Front fork brace
But if having to buy these accessories, have them shipped, and then you spend three days beating up your knuckles, cursing, and coming here every hr looking for advice to install, you may want to increase their value to probably a 1000 bucks.
FWIW... Last week I sold a red 06 Wee, 11000 miles, 1500 worth of stuff for 6700. Guy looked at it for only a few minutes, I started it for him, he shut it off after 30 seconds. And I rode it to his home shortly after.
It was exactly what he wanted, color, accessories, etc. He didn't haggle a nickle, and is very happy...As am I.
The only way there is 3000 in accessories is if the dealer installed everything and at 90 bucks an hr included in the 3000. Which is possible I suppose..
Pay the price your happy to pay.
