Like the title says, looking to minimize the ridiculous fees. Just got a quote from Cycle World of Athens for a new Polaris 450 base model. $742 in dealer fees tacked on to it. That is absurd. I haven't bought new in forever. Can I do better anywhere else?

Tell dealers exactly what you want and request a full quote, incl. any and all fees.
Buy from the lowest... or negotiate w local dealer. They all will have junk fees, they making money and keeping lights on..
Good luck, JT

Mountain Motorsports in Conyers was pretty fair when I priced a new Ranger from them. I ended up getting it in Statesboro ga, but Mountain Motors was likely to get the deal until the Statesboro dealer stepped up.

That's too much in fees. PDI and setup fees I charged was around the 300 dollar mark.
Dealerships that go any higher are called stealerships.
The final assembly of a typical offroad vehicle takes about 45 minutes. So, I factor half labor cost. Then add in one month flooring fee and chemicals ( fuel, oil, lube, polish).
The pre-delivery inspection is done during final assembly.... adjustments, check brake assemblies, tire pressures...etc.
The only times I've gone above basic is when someone bought a vehicle and wanted optional equipment installed, pre-delivery. Obviously, this takes more time, therefore, higher fees. But, if equipment is installed pre-delivery, its usually easier, cleaner and faster so I charged half labor. Even then, it didnt exceed 600. That was on a Mule that the buyer wanted hydraulic bed tilt, winch, full cab and gun boots.
