Need Advice... keep oem parts or sell

So, I've got some oem parts from my Senna that I have changes out, and am wondering if I should sell them or keep them... nothing major, but here they are:

Windscreen
Water pump
Levers
Rear hugger/license plate holder
Reservoir covers
Tail light
Mid-pipe

Not sure any of those are even worth anything, but my main concern is preserving the "stock" bike in the event it goes up for sale as a lot of time people like to buy these that way... or do they? Also it's got rider miles on it (@~3100 right now) so it's not a collector, show room bike either. What do you guys think, should I get this stuff out of my garage and help some other MV guys out with things they may need, or should I hold onto it? Thanks.

Curtis, there's not a lot of value in those OEM parts, but the windscreen and levers would be nice spares if you track it. Also, being a Senna, it might be desirable to a future buyer to have ALL of the original parts, if you ever sell it.

Keep the parts.

Keep the parts. When/If you ever sell her you should re-install them and sell the aftermarket stuff separately instead.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

All good advice so far... I pretty much though I should keep them just in case, but I'm trying to get some stuff out of my garage.

Every thing I replaced on my bikes is still stored in my garage.
A: If something gets broken, I have spares.
B: If anyone is in need of the stuff I have I can help.
So what if Your bike tips over and the brake lever is broken ?
You have the spare and can go riding again the next Day.
Other wise You might have to wait a week before the shipment arrives.

Keep most at least, the waterpump on the Senna was the "old" version as for as the 1000's go, so not much use. The screens are very expensive to replace, and are not the same on all F4's, contrary to what Noel said. The rest I agree with the other guys.
