For the most part yes. BUT, it depends on where you live (are Warriors rare where you are? Your profile doesn't say where) ,and, HAS IT HAD IT'S RECALL done yet? If it HAS NOT had the recall, then I'd be more willing to pay a little more for it. For the cost of just parts you could get HC pistons installed and a Roadie 5th gear installed during the recall...
My $.02 says its a dealer. go in with information on book value from KBB and from NADA as well as local cycle trader etc. Be knowledgeable in what the current local value is for both the Warrior and your Shadow. Be preparred to be insulted with an incredibly low offer for your bike. But step back and see if they are flexing on the Warriors price. Your best bet is to not be too attached to that bike in particular. If this one doesnt work out there are plenty more out there.
Those are really low miles for an 02. I'd be willing to pay $7200 out the door. But I would definately check out the classifieds on this 4M. You can usually find bikes with low miles and lots of mods there for not a whole lot more than what the dealer is asking.
i went there yesterday and he wont come off the price a cent. he did offer me 3500 for my bike though. he says he sells warriors so fast when they come in that he doesnt have to compromise on price at all. he also said he got it from a harley dealer that got it on a trade. he also has 2 2003s both with about 9000 miles and a couple mods but hes asking over 8000 for them.
$7,200 from a dealer isn't a bad price at all. If you take some time to shop around on ebay & cycle trader, you'll probably find one cheaper than that. That said, the bike you're looking at is barely even broken in and you typically have a little bit less risk when you buy from a dealer.
The problem with shopping around on ebay is that you may end up waiting a long time and spending a fair bit of money driving around to look at different bikes. Also, you have to be careful that you don't get screwed in an internet deal. If I were you, I would check ebay and cycle trader for something comparable or better that is nearby where you live. If you find something close, go check it out before you go back to the dealer. If you don't find anything close-by, I'd try to squeeze a few hundred dollars more out of the deal from the dealer and take it. He won't be making any huge profit on the numbers he gave you.
