Cheapest source for Kawi touring seat?
« on: May 17, 2018, 09:10:39 pm »
I searched threads here, and powersports warehouse used to have these seats for around $400.00. They now list them for full MSRP of $534.00.

Where can I find the best deal for this pricey item?

Just a month ago, I would have been able to order from powersports warehouse for $384. I elected to go with the local dealer that was able to get it around $450 with no shipping. The benefit from the dealer was the ability to return it without any restocking fee. I did not see a big enough benefit over stock to justify the price so I did return it. Ask your local dealer to discount and they probably will.

It’s probably a thing called MAP...Minimum Advertised Pricing...manufacturers are now using this a lot...it comes closer to having a level playing field between what the internet sellers would advertise...which could be a very low price...and, your local shop...which would typically quote MSRP...it doesn’t have anything to do with what either place would actually sell the item for...just what it could be advertised for...it wouldn’t hurt to ask both places what they would sell one for...

I've had pretty good experiences with Partzilla, especially when you order big/bulky parts (think ATV fairings) where FREE shipping really adds value and savings.

Anyone have the "Accessory Touring Seat" from Kawasaki? Just did an 800 mile weekend on my brand new '17. Saddle not as comfy as the Corbin on my C10. I need to upgrade, but man, these this are spendy!

You're asking if anyone has the "Accessory Touring Seat" from Kawasaki?

Um, yeah. Have you read this thread at all?
