There is probably about $1500 in markup on the bike itself, and on top of that they are charging you an assembly fee of I'm guessing a few hundred bucks (varies from dealer to dealer). So if he is giving you $900 off the sticker he is still making $600, and he is making money on the assembly fee as well even after he pays his technician. Plus this doesn't even get in to the percentage he gets on the financing. So really there is room for him to play with here. There is no reason he shouldn't install the pipes for free to make the deal unless he knows you will buy it anyway.
