    I have been looking for a good used ztr and went to a dealer yesterday. Before I was ready to leave he knocked off 1,000 from the asking price of 4500 to 3500 on a 48 inch tiger cub. How much room in negotiation's have you found on used at a dealer?

    Used equipment is much like a used truck at a dealership, there is usually a much higher markup on used, plus their hands aren't tied by the manufacturers minimum price agreements.
