Great idea tapping in to the park lamp! I will do that for my 60cs also.

So if I went in and made an offer of $11000 OTD I wouldnt be off base? The tag said said 12k plus freight and fees so Im guessing I would be asking for nearly 2k$ off sticker when you include taxes. Thanks.

12k is MSRP. From Triumph's website:

Quote:
$11,999 (with ABS) *Price is MSRP, and excludes tax, title, license, options, handling, pre-delivery, and destination charges
I wouldn't pay MSRP for a last year left over (doesn't matter whether it's an unchanged model, it's about the immediate depreciation just through the model year designation). My preferred dealer says that they generally estimate about 10% for freight, license, and fees, they don't charge for setup at all.

Offering 11k is fair.

Make sure you know beforehand what freight and fees are (before you make the offer), or you'll get these higher when the price drops. If freight and fees are too high, walk away. I've had a dealer here in Sunnyvale that offered a new 2007 Honda ST1300 in 2009 for 12k new - but wanted $3600 "set up fee" + freight + taxes. I told him to f*** himself and walked out. So be sure to know what they are asking for and what is common in your area from comparable dealers.

Let me see if we are jiving here. 11K out the door including all fees and taxes? or is 11k the lowest I could go and then add fees and taxes on top of that? Thanks.

I was able to get mt XC for down from $12,000 to $10,500. They should be motivated to get rid of hold overs.

Be firm, they have room to work with the $12,000 price

Air filter, valve check, etc... can be done without removing fuel tank. Unbolt it and swing it up. Support it from above.

As easy as it is to remove why not just remove it? I can't imagine trying to check the valve clearance without removing the tank.

Same reason not to remove the airbox when doing a valve check. One more step, one more step, etc... it all adds up. The tilted tank doesn't get in the way at all when checking valves.
