Got this price for a new Sportsman 800 and some accessories.
And I want to hear what you think about the price?

I think you'll love the bike, I also think you coulda saved a few bucks by modding it yourself. I didn't pay $600+ for my winch, seems pricey.... At least you don't have to mess with the install.

$600 for labor is pricey plus I'd tell them to give u the stock wheels and tires at least or give u credit.

I paid about $200+/- for my superwinch terra 3500, that's 500 more pounds of pulling power for a lot less money. It did cost me a weekend for the install and I had to make a small bracket but....
Pretty sure I paid less for my bumpers and hand guards, both real easy to self-install.
Amazon is your friend.

Ok. I'm from Sweden, so I'm not that familiar with the price for labor in the States.

I'll get the stock wheels on the side.

Exactly!

A 800 with just the front winch, no other accessories, is around $13.300 OTD here.
And the accessories is at least half the price.

Your getting a good price on the ATV. Man they're really getting you bad on the extras. The tires and winch and plow are almost double what you could get it for in the U.S. The bumpers and rack extenders are not to far off. $11k for a fully set up ATV is not a bad price tho.

Your probably over paying for some of the stuff, but if the money isn't a huge deal you are getting a fully set up ATV how you like it. Even though you found a way to save comparing to amazon, $420 is only 4% of the total price. I've over paid 4% on a lot of things in my life.

Sometimes when you get something just the way you like, price doesn't matter.

That's true!
It's stupid to be greedy.

And the Swedes order stuff from Germany.
Beacuse it's cheap :hmmm:

This is the best way for sure to get a good deal, buying accessories by themself the shipping costs and customs fees to Sweden will kill you.

You will have alot of fun with this bike and its accessories

Jag lovar ?

Yes, it's a really good deal :cowboy:

Ja, nu är det bara att vänta på att det ska bli april :fest06:

I'd agree.... get them to through in the accessories installation for free, and you'd have a deal.

Also, make sure you get the stock wheels or a credit for them.... as your paying for them with a stock machine!!

Can't say if the price is good or bad, with the pond span. But, my 2012 800 was ~ $7250 out the door in Sept. 2012, after the year end rebate and accessories (# 2500 Polaris Winch, 60" G3 Plow and front/rear rack extenders).

Good Luck with your purchase..... You'll love it!!! :fing02:

The problem is that I'm not going there in person. And only have one store I can buy from. Because we are ten persons exporting together.
So it's hard to negotiate.

I will get the stock tires on the side. Can sell them here in Sweden, for more than I would get as a credit.

$7250 seems like a super price :cowboy:

Thanks!
