    Checked a couple dealers around here and they all want $199 which I read is the MSRP. Is it typical to sell them at MSRP? Most times you buy anything the MSRP is 25% more then what they sell it for. I figured these things had a street value of around $175.

    MSRP is what our dealers are selling them for, this is more of a part type sale for them, not a machine sale where they may have some room to wiggle in the price.
    The Flex Forks are not light, they weigh 45 pounds a set, thus making it expensive to ship, they have UPS costs getting them in and in some cases shipping them out.
    You may find prices higher than MSRP to compensate for shipping, and then in some cases if the dealer installs them, a small fee to put them on the mower.

    You can take my word for it they are worth every penny, my dealer has already sold almost 50 sets and they just came out. When they get their patent if they want to build them for other mowers I don't believe they will be able to build them fast enough. They are built a lot stronger than you would think

    Well I'm going to be getting a set for this year. I'm thinking about a suspension seat for it too. Got pretty beat up last year. Anything would help.

    $199.00 is for a pair of Flex Forks.
    As to when we will have them ready for Lazers, I cant answer that, we are planning on doing it though, I can tell you that.

    We do not recommend them for use with the Bac-Vac, due to the additional weight in the front of the mower from the Bac-Vac weights.

    Savannah Powersports (local dealer) has sold several, unfortunately like the moderator said a bit over msrp, I guess to cover s/h:nono:

    Mowerconsultant,
    Can I use Flex Forks on a Fastrak 20/52 and use the snowblade or snowblower attachments?
    Thanks.
