What's a Fair Price for a 08

I almost bought one this morning, I had a 03 XR 650L, I sold this spring, (Mistake) I use it primaraly when camping, I loved the bike, but wished it was liquid cooled, it was like riding a fire on those hot summer days. I went to a local dealer today to replace it with a DRZ 650. The out the door on that was $4600. I saw the 08 KLR ($5600, o.t.d.) and unlike some on this site thougt it looked good and fit the bill for my use. I was wondering what everybody else was paying

I have been quoted anywhere from $5400 to $6300 all over TX ... I chose the cheapest one even though it was 300 miles away. I still saved $500 after trailer rental, gas, lodging and food compared to the price of my local dealer. I would have gladly paid $5600 for a local dealer, but nobody would budge.

Bottom line up front you will have to pay what they ask due to supply and demand..... but here is how I faired...

OK,

it has been a long wait but it is now over!!!

I paid cash for my 08 KLR this morning and will pick it up tomorrow afternoon.
NYS is the last place in the world to get one...my local dealer only got ONE in and it was green and now belongs to me!!! Can't wait to get on and ride..home and change to oil, then start riding.

here is what the got me for: (disclaimer NYS sucks)


Base price: $5,150
Freight/Dealer prep: $99
Sales tax(s): $406.80
NYS Inspection: $6
Title or Transfer fee: $96.50
Other (required + not options): $5 NYS tire disposal fee
Total (OTD): $5,763.30


I am happy and no one else in my county has one yet!!!

Does that include tax and license on an 07?

BTW I put down a deposit on an 08 KLR for $5200 OTD tax and license included, I didn't have the patience though...

After a test drive of the 08, I found the fairing to be to much, I didn't like the feel of the front end. Its to much touring for me. I was a dissappointed, I am now looking for 07 now. I have one local dealer who has 2 and would not take $4950, he wants $5123. I thought $4950 was more than a fair offer on my part and had the cash in hand. I see some people have paid anywhere from $4600-$4900. The orginal dealer was out of 07 and said to get one he would need $4880, I was supose to go on vacation 7/28 and wanted to take the bike with, however the wifes back went out so now I have alittle time. I am located in Northeast IL and looking for a 07. If anyone knows of anything in my area let me know, for now Iam KLR less

Well the gas for the trip down here would kill the difference in price, but there is a dealer in Central Ky. with one 07 left, was quoted 4600 for it a couple weeks ago. I know not much help for you, but maybe someone around here is looking for one.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
