How much "wiggle room" do dealers have on price?

Post  Marine3313 on Fri Jul 29, 2016 12:53 am

So I'm looking at a 2012 xr 650 with 5600 miles. He has it listed for 3999 said best price is 3799 with tax and stuff 4200. I told him look I have 3500 cash which is no lie. He said boss said no. I said can you hold it for a week til I come up with little more cash? Nope can't do it. So my question is this ...do you think a pretty big size dealer could eat 400
To make a sale or at least hold it for a week? Thoughts please. Do you think I should just move on to another? Thanks all.

There is no such thing as a 2012 XR650R so you must be refering to a 650L

Where I live dealers only make 8% on new bikes before discounting

Sorry guys it is a XR650 L. I was just wondering how much room they had to sell at their price compared to my price. Wanted 3999 out the door be 4200 I have 3700. I wanted him to give it to me for 3700 out the door. Not tryin to lowball him. That's all I have.  He said Boss wouldn't even hold it for couple weeks til I had the rest. I was gonna put $$ down as well.

Thought as much this is a 650L forum and we are a bit weird when it comes to the L models.....sorry Bump

Personally I like the XR650L - Just hate it when people think my XR650R is the same as an L Frustrated

It should last you forever - Just learn how to check the oil level properly and make sure it is always topped up

Some useless info to the R owners

The L is a 1988 Dominator motor in a 1985 XR600R frame
