If they gave you a good OTD price w/o the usual mark ups like freight, documents and prep then just ask for a good discount on a new helmet.

If they didn't give you a great price on the new bike then I doubt they care about your business enough to throw in a helmet! :thumbsup:

I have heard most dealerships don't make a lot of money on dirt bikes, they make their money on gear, chemicals, and service.

The last time I bought bikes at the dealership I bought three at the same time two new and one used. They gave me good prices on the bikes. When it came time to load up I only had two pairs of straps and needed three. I asked the salesman to get me another pair, he came back and said they were going to be $12.00. I was surprised that he would charge me the 12.00 for the straps considering I just bought three bikes. But, I held my breath paid the 12.00 and went home still happy with the deal I got.

I would say: Ask the question but don't expect much.

You should have told him you didn't have $12 and you were going to have to return one of the bikes!

As a dealer, keep in mind, there really is very little profit in a bike...at least for us small dealers...for instance, in order to compete with volume dealers, we usually will not charge set-up (whats our time worth) or charge for our freight to get the bike in($200). We do offer good discounts on gear and accessories for 6 months but, people always want free stuff...I can understand, your spending a big chunk of change on a bike, whats a couple of hundred more in free stuff, well, we also are spending a big chunk on that bike and get nothing for free from most distributors. Just a little food for thought...remember, if you buy a bike from your local dealer and you are not hounding them on price for every little thing, you make friends there and not become that nightmare customer that all dealerships talk about, you will likely get first in line when you bring your bike in for service, or be the first to get a good discount when the shop feels it can afford it. I dont know how it goes for large large large shops, but with ours, my business partner and I run it, handle all customers and work on all bikes...so its more important to us to please our customer than a kid who is making $8.00 an hour and could give a care less what the customers think.

When I bought my XR400, the dealer gave me 30% (I think it was 30) off anything in the store that day. I bought some Tech 8's for the Tech 5 price. Nothing was given away and he still made a bit on each item. Everyone was happy.

Last time I bought a new bike, I gave the guy the price of the bike and an additional $225, and he threw in a free helmet. A week later I went back and gave him $42.00, and he gave me free gloves.
