What do you think this is worth
I am thinking about buying a ski local to me. It is a 2003 GP1300R and has the following mods. It is a clean ski with 50 hours and no trailer. Looking for what you guys think this is worth in todays crappy economy. I have been seeing some great buys out there lately.
This is a Riva sponsored ski and has the following mods. (Not sure about waveater clips or pump tunnel reinforcement yet. Should see it in person soon.)
Riva Sponsons, ride plate, intake grate, free flow, power core, efi controller, flame arrestor.
Hydroturf mats and seat cover
Solas Concord 14/21 impeller

$3k cash if compression is on the money.

Any other thoughts on the value of this ski?
Is $3000 the most I should offer?

Honestly the problem is that there are 05-06 GPRs selling around 3500 - 5000 and 04 - 06 RXPs selling around 5000. If you are anywhere close to these prices with a 5 - 6 year old machine, then to some people that is over priced. In today's market you cannot use any value guide (kbb,nada) to suggest a price. The value is only worth what someone will pay for it.

Thanks for the input. Everyone has pretty much backed up my thoughts. I am checking out the ski this evening. I will let you know how it goes.

Ski was a dissapointment
Well I saw the ski yesterday and it wasn't worth the trip, luckily it was only 25 minutes away.
The guy wanted more $ when I got there, ski was in garage and untouched for a year. Oil residue everywhere, looks like it was never sprayed with silicone. Plug wires looked bad. Not sure if it was winterized, no battery or gas to check compression. Pump tunnel not reinforced and no waveeater clips or couplers. Oil residue all over, impeller was rocked. I told him the impeller was rocked and his response was that happens. I know it happens, but don't expect top dollar for it then or get it fixed. Nozzle and grab bar were sun faded.
Here is the ebay link below in case anyone else was thinking about it. There is a lot better out there and this one is not worth the $ in my opinion.
And the funny thing is the guy raced this ski and it was set up all wrong. I guess he never found this site!
