Default Thinking about selling my EC250

I recently bought a brand new left over 05 GasGas EC250, with some recent things going on at home I am thinking about selling it. I have just over an hour on it, it's like brand new! It has lights, ODO and the stock hand guards, I can throw in the pipe guard that I haven't had time to put on. I would like to know how much this bike is worth should I decide to sell it? Thanks, Ash

In my opinion, it's worth about $3000 due to the economy and GasGas resale stinks. A great condition '03 DE300 just sold for $1500 locally and I live in a stupid expensive area.

If your in Canada you can sell that bike for $4500 or so. I bought my 2002 EC250 for $2900 and it was fairly beat up.

I just sold my 03 for about $2400 in mint,, but it went to a good guy who will really take care of it.. I had an offer for more but wanted it to go to someone who actually understood what a gasgas was..

Dozerash, How much are you thinking of asking for your 250? When you say leftover/ new, do you mean zero miles and zero hours? Where are you located? I'm looking for a 200, but if the price is right, etc.... If you decide to sell, give me some details. Thanks.

I finally got some time to really ride my GasGas and I must say the more I ride it the more I enjoyed it. I have decided to sell my 03 KTM 300 EXC instead (after the Enduro next weekend, it has a street plate) and keep my EC 250. I do like the engine a little better in the KTM it seems smoother and shifting isn't as critical, also the suspension doesn't bottom like the GasGas does. The GasGas seems lighter and much easier to handle and I feel like I can ride faster with more confidence.
Somethings I would like to change on my GasGas.
1) Seems just a little small for my height (5' 11") maybe lower foot pegs?
2) Seems way too soft for my weight, what isn't at 217# ? Any suggestions on stiffing it up without spending a fortune? I'm only a Senior C rider on a budget and only ride occasionally.
3) That shifting lever is way too short for my #12 boots. Anyone make a longer one? I had to take mine off, heat and bend it just so I could use it, if I moved it up a notch on the spline it would hit the front sprocket guard on the up shifts.
4) When I was visiting my parents a couple of weeks ago I took my Dad's bulldozer out and built a small moto cross track with a couple of small jumps and a lot of turns on a hillside, it worked great on this except for the mentioned soft suspension. The engine seems to have a good mid range hit that was fun but I think if I had a little better bottom end and a smoother hit I would enjoy the bike even more. I did unplug the wires in the airbox and put it in the rainy mode and it seemed a little smoother and I felt like I could ride a little faster that way. Did I mention It handles really well!
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
I also still have whats left of the 1 year warranty that came with the bike when I bought it, so I would really be crazy for selling it. It's a keeper

Good to hear. I think a LTR power valve cover, and LTR jetting kit would be a great investment for you. It will add more bottom end and make the mid nice and smooth.
