Question 08' Vulcan 900 Custom Diablo Black $$?

I'm about to leave for a Kawi dealer in my area who just got in a 2008 Vulcan 900 custom diablo black. 6,000 Miles, he says its really really really clean no scratches. KBB for it is like $5,500 . How low do you think I can get them? My limit was suppose to be like $5500 with interest and everything. I don't know what they are asking yet. This is my first motocycle purchase. Please if you have any advice. Thanks.

I've seen 08's on craigslist for $4000 - $5000, evenn a few for 3995. So they should be able to get you out of there for less then that depending on how bad they need to sell it...

I'm Back..

So he was asking like $5,900 bike is in like perfect shape only additional stuff on it is a windshield and leather saddle bags wich are in just as good of condition. I saw one tiny rock chip on the fender, just under 6,000 miles on it. Got him to $5,500. there are no dealer fee's just tax and interest for whatever I finance. So what do you guys think? oh and he is gonna put a new rear tire on it. The only advantage I see from buying from a dealer VS craigs is that you know the bike has been looked over. And so far they do seem like good guys, my buddy bought his KLX there. Should I shoot for lower with them?

About that Red Classic.

The red classic was a 07' with 13,xxx miles and they were asking $4,798 firm so...I figure an 08' Custom with bags and shield for $5,500 not bad....and also the classic is like.....2 1/2 hour drive away and I dont have my license yet and my father would have to get it.....too much hassle. I'll see what I come up with. I just really want to get the best solid reliable deal I can get since money is tight. Thanks for all the opinions and support guys.

So..what do u think

So its a hair below NADA high book. Although its in great condition so thats fair. But also I have to add tax and interest but book value doesnt count that anyway So maybe $5,500 and a free helmet? lol. I don't know :/

Buy your own helmet. Get the new back tire and the 8k mile service. The bags and windshield should not count for anything, it was not standard. They did not give the guy who traded it in a dime for them.

Isn't that the truth. I have never have seen a dealer value a trade-in with an additional penny for any aftermarket part!, Never!

I always take everything off that can be taken off without major work, and revert it to stock, selling the removed parts at 60 percent or so of new price.

So you can take it to the BANK, that the dealer didn't give the guy anything for the extras.
