This is the bike I am talking about being the same, have not checked the other ones.

I sold my Yamaha YZF 600R through the Florida Cycle Trader. I
never had any problems. I got lots of calls from people who
though the bike was a R6, so I had to tell them no it's the 600R.
Then I got a call from a guy up in Valdosta, GA who knew what
my bike was and wanted to see it. He drove down and I met him
at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Haines City. I showed him every
thing about the bike and let him ride it around the parking lot
and he loved it. Next thing I know he's giving me 5700.00 in
cash and it's a done deal. I didn't even have the title yet. I paid
off the bike and sent him the title. Everything went smooth for
both of us.

I have seen a R1 with carbon fiber R7 body work on Cycle trader.com for $4,000.00. Then I saw the same bike on ebay for $15,000.00 and the guy is telling everybody it is a scam on cycle trader. I'm so sick of people ripping other people off. It's making it very hard for people that are legitimately selling there bike to do so. I posted my TLR on ebay but I had no luck in selling it. Because I had no feedback. So that was the biggest waste of cash. Thanks to all the scammers out there for Fing it up for everybody.

I remember looking at Cycle trader and coming to the conclusion that it was a waste of time. I would never buy a bike unless it was in person.

Ok, you have to read my troubles with CycleTrader:

I had a lot of trouble with CycleTrader trying to SELL a bike. I had a "run til sold ad", meaning the ad runs until you sell it and you just pay one price up front. You have to call and renew the ad every 3 weeks or they stop running it without even telling you. So I called to renew, I think it was my second renewal, so my ad had already been running for about 2 months. The lady renewed it over the phone and I was all set, right? Well, she called back and said my credit card didn't work and she needed another one. I had just changed cards and figured they just verified your account or whatever every time you renewed. So my next CC bill they charge me again for the full "run til sold" price. I call back, complain, and it takes 3 different people until I finally got a manager that even understood what I was trying to explain. They said no problem, we'll credit your account. 3 weeks go by, no credit. I call again and now they say they need proof that I was charged twice. So I print my online bank statement, fax it to them, and they say that's no good, they need a copy of the physical paper statement. :bs So I call my bank and dispute it. The lady from the bank handling the case calls me back one day said all they need is a copy of my statements. She said she would print it out and send it to CycleTrader herself. I get a call back the next day from my bank and she says, "Those people are idiots!" Cycle Trader refused to accept the statements SENT DIRECTLY FROM MY BANK as proof that I was double charged. Needless to say, I won the dispute and got my money back.

Along with that same ad, I had added another Cycle Trader paper for a little extra $$. I decided only to pay for a one-time 3 week ad, but they charged me the full "run til sold" price for that second paper. They again refused to credit my account, so I again filed a dispute and won that one too.

I HATE CYCLE TRADER!!!!! Someone REALLY needs to sue their ass!
