Here's what I was thinking. My dad has a used car dealership whith the dealer license for motorcycles (although he does not sell them). I was thinking for me to get parts at cost would be great so I was thinking about trying to get a parts unlimitted dealership. I do not know what it would take but I know I would not buy enough to keep them with me. However if others are interested since it is not my living I might try to work a deal out, you know a couple bucks for time and what ever the shipping is. that way we might all bennifit but I don't want to do it for a living and have all my time in it. So if a few people are interested let me know I will look into it. I do not know if they have quantity break down of if they will drop ship. You know I could set up a pay pal or something and then just have it sent from them to you and not touch it.
Just something I was throwing around, also if anyone is close b/c the way I work maybe they could help out some.
May be dumb just thinking out loud you know. Every time I walk into a dealer he shows me the book and says thats the price.[?]

It is a good idea. I think most parts companies will only ship to the business address so that might be an issue. If I were close I would gladly help.

I called them they said I needed to be a majority Power sports dealer. No problem I can lie but I would need to make a stock order.
They do offer this, there are 3 places that wholesale to business that only need a few parts.
Wisconson 800-752-2556
NC 800-438-7921
Iowa 800-848-0609
You need to fill out a form(they are sending it to me) and you can buy at (the one I talked to) 20% over cost. I do not know the mark up yet but I am going to find out. This could work for me but I was thinking someone you know has to have a business, try to get it done near you.
I do not know how long it will take to find out pricing but as soon as I do I will pass it on if you guys wish.
What would be great was if a bunch of us needed or wanted something at the same time then we could make that our stocking order but the chanches are slim.

I can get 15%-20% off retail right now going through Rivaeric and he is legit! 15%-20% from A1 SportCenter! There are quite a few dealer's already giving great discounts, all one has to do is search around for the best dealer or supplier.

When I was in the moto business 10 years ago, Parts Unlimited required a photo of your store front to process an application. I don't know if that's still true, but they do try to protect their established dealers.

Around here the dealer hands you the book says find what you want the price is listed. To me that just sucks, I had a Polaris dealership so I had a PU acount before, I don't remember what I had to do but no big deal I was just as said talking out loud.
