    Question about the gpr market....

    I'm curious, this is my first "off-season" with my ski, and I had my ski listed for sale for a few weeks, and got absolutely no interest at $5600, then down to $4900 and not even an inquiry. Is this the normal trend for trying to sell a ski in the fall/winter, or is the market for GPR's slowly dying?

    last spring/early summer when I bought mine, I thought that $5,500 out the door (about $4900 w/ trailer + tax/title/tags) was an absolute steal, but right now that seems to be about a dime a dozen? hell I just talked to a guy down in miami whos selling his gpr-sho conversion for $6,500....

    Is everything slowing down because everyones hopping on the FZR bandwagon, or is the market just bad because the time of year?

    I said **** it, took mine off the market, and am throwing Jim's 1390 ported EFI into it and enjoying it!

    I would say exactly what U did pull off and try the local market and or try Craigslist.Remember that sometimes when u r dealing with this forum or others similar to it the market may be slightly softer but just hang in and you'll get it sold.....By the way, I like the 1390 idea the best.
