I believe your worries are warranted. NADA shows the average book value for your ride is $2291 and the low end is $1740. Kelly Blue Book shows $2615. That doesn't mean somebody wouldn't pay more for your bike but you might get chewed down in price if you would sell.
which makes me laugh when i see people selling older bikes with 10's of thousand miles on them for way more then what id get..even dealers get/ask more for them then what the kbb.com or nada.com shows they should..i know people can ask what they want but come on..3-4000 for a 90's model with mileage in the 10-20k range? mine only has 65?? miles on it. id ask 3000k and hope to get 2500$..always ask more. you can come down,but can't go up in price.
oh and on your swapping out tank for a bigger size for more volume tank..it can be done,but takes lots of fab work..ive been wanting to do this too but dont have the skills/tools to do it right.
