RUN AWAY FROM THAT DEALER AND NEVER GO BACK THERE AGAIN !

Is this a realistic price? no

Do I get them to put on Kawa engine guards or go buy aftermarkets?

You NEVER talk to them again.

Same question for rear guards? same answer RUN

Does one need to adjust the rear shock for 2-Up riding and, if so, is it easily accomplished? yes

Is there anything you would advise me to ask for like add-ons to the bike in the negotiation?

NO. By now you should be in another state.

Tell them you're prepared to pay $9500 out the door, as it sits, including the 4 year GTPP.

How its Calculated?

JJ & Who: How does one get $ 12,883 "out the door" from a "sale price" of $ 11,600 on that new leftover 2010 VN2000 Classic LT that JJ has linked? I saw that too on Cycletrader. I'd say $ 9,500 could be low but perhaps a good starting point to reach something more realistic. [Of course $ 13K "out the door" was too high.]

As this is a leftover 2009 that I saw, it would have to be worth something less than sale price $11.6K and out the door price of $12.9K for a leftover 2010.

I was looking for the bill of sale on mine and can't find it at the moment but, from memory, I paid something like $9200 or $9400 out the door with the 4 year warranty when I bought my 2008 new from a dealer, zero miles, in 2010.

In hindsight, even though it's a carryover, it might be harder to get as good of a deal as quite a few of us did because the bike is discontinued now.

Possibly the higher price is tax/license, might try to stick you with dealer prep fees, maybe they've figuring in the GTTP cost, etc. etc.

MMOJO, Regardless of the price upon which you decide, its YOU who has to stroke the check , so as long as you are happy, thats what counts. I personally think 9200 is a great starting point & it should be not far off the finish line , either, unless you start adding OEM trinkets .
As for some of your other questions, I would recommend Cobra Fatty freeway bars over the Kawi bars, they are a one piece /heavier bar than the Kawi
I have had both.
I have not seen any rear guards for these bikes.
Suspension adjustment, depends upon your size ? its not complicated,
Anything else: leave enough cash on the table to throw away the factory seats & replace them with almost ANY aftermarket, I am partial to Mustang , but there other s as well.
Bigger bags could also be an upgrade to be considered, or a trunk

If you have the willpower, the factory seat starts to conform to your shape after about 12K miles. Perhaps it takes longer if you don't weigh 260 or so.

Bags, Seat, Bars

The one-piece thicker bar you recommend -- that is a good idea.

Bigger bags, you'd recommend which ones for a VN2000?

I really like the looks of the studded seats on this bike -- I hope either the seat conforms to my _____ or that my _____ conforms to the seat. Whichever.

BTW, what kind of touring range in miles do you get with a VN2000?

I wonder what the chances are that the dealer would come all the way down to something like $10K? That's a reduction of $3K. Its still higher than $9.5K.

I bought my new 2009 V2K Classic LT form a dealer in Jersey in October 2011 for $9400. i had it shipped to me here in Florida via UShip for $250. I felt that I got a great deal. Never even sat on one before buying it. As of yesterday have 6000 miles on it. What a great cruiser. Haven't needed to adjust shock for 2 up. Have the Cobra fatty Bars on it with Kuryakin adjustable offset pegs. A great combo for this bike. Added the Cobra Tachometer to the riser, also a fine piece of equipment. Freedom Performance pipes, K & N filter and Cobra Fi2000r fuel processor and this baby flies.
