basicblues, Road Track and Trail in Muskogee quoted me $6329.67 OTD. Trying to find out price before taxes and fees. Any comments on the $6329 OTD price? Good, bad average? Thanks for the comments.
Ouch! How much of that price would be sales tax? You might have to apply for a farm tax exemption.
Just for reference the 2003 WR 450F Dealer Invoice Pricing is as follows: List Price $6399.00 ~ Dealer Invoice $5409.00 ~ Assembly Cost $25.00 ~ Ready to sell Cost $5434.00 (which would be no profit for dealer) There's also a dealer holdback of 3% ($191.97) of LIST price which dealer has to wait up to 12 months after selling the bike to receive their holdback money. The 2004 models list for $100.00 more than the 2003 models but these figure would still be relatively close. Now you have enough information to see exactly what the dealer is making off the bike, how good of deal your getting and what constitutes a reasonable "dealer profit". Dealers certainly won't stay in business very long by selling bikes for the "Ready To Sell Cost" so now it's up to you to determine the reasonable profit you can live and be happy with.
All things considered the bike Indy mentioned sounds like a bargain...Good Luck

Shepps in Bartlesville has one for $5950.00+tax, and the dealer up by grand lake (Dick Lane) 5750.00+ tax, and both dealers had them on the floor as of yesterday. Hope this helps.
