Hey guys perhaps you can help me out here. I am a jap bike guy historically but am ordering the 2008 Night Rod Special and was wondering what are the normal charges that a dealer lays on on of these?

At the moment I am looking at a best of:

MSRP $16,695
Security System $345
California Emmisions $100
Freight and prep $930
Doc Fee $123.25
Tax $1274

For a total of $19,467.25

I assume that due to demand it's normal to pay full MSRP but $930 for freight and prep? $100 for Cali emissions when I live in Nevada? If this is normal fine but I am paying cash outright and for any jap bike (I know this ain't a Suzuki) I'd at least get a bit off.

So, my question is... Should I look around more or just pay their asking?

Why are they charging you for CA emissions in NV? Did HD start making bikes for ALL states now like Auto Co.s?

IMO, the freight and prep are high and i would look to negotiate that down (or even try to get it waved completely). you're probably not going to get them to budge much if any off of MSRP for an 08 night rod special...

i live in NV also bought a 2008 NRS and do not have CA emissions on my bike

i think they are just trying to get you on them .. but maybe they do have CA emission which could be good if you ever plan on moving to CA

Send a PM to Mookie B and tell him what you want. It may be a drive to San Diego for you but I'm betting from that quote that he will make the drive worth your expense. :)
