New bike prices

I am thinking of buying a new bike and was wondering how negotiable, if at all, are the prices. I have purchased a couple of new cars and know all about haggling for new cars. Can you do the same with a bike or are they pretty firm? Thanks.

Re: New bike prices

a rule of thumb is to never pay the posted price, they always have barging room unless there saleing there bread and butter, and in that case they wont budge, and even sometimes make the price up above the manfacture sugested retail,

but usually they will come down if they dont come down try and get them to through gear or something in.

LEFTOVERS ARE ALWAYS CHEAPER CAUSE THEY NEED THE MONEY AND ROOM FOR NEW STOCK.

Re: New bike prices

take scotch brite pad the the sidepanels right were they meet the aribox, I can see the black from your boots on them right there. or just scrub real hard,

if you want that for the bike you better get the pic and brush out and get to work cause that things gon have to look new for someone to pay that much for it, and from my experince, people will pay more for a bike thats all stock than a bike that throw on parts on it, reason being is that they think the bike has been dinked with less, but there all dinked with. If I was saleing that thing Id throw the stock pipe and triple clamp and bars and sale it that.

also with after market pipes and stuff the byer is more likely to think the bikes been raced cause they look through mags and stuff and see all the top guys running that stuff, it realy doesnt matter that a bikes been raced or not but most buyers dont know that, they just want something to ride.

sorry Ive had a few bars and felt voiceing my opions, actully to tell you the truth 3800s not that bad but I would trhow some stock stuff back on it unless its been thrashed, I know my tock bars on my kx lasted like a day at the max, then I went trhough like 7 sets after that, not just bending but breaking intwo, lol the good old days, must be that dang aluminum.
