New - Shipped in crate - What to expect

I have an opportunity (I'm hoping) to purchase a "New in crate 800 Outlander XT - In crate". It's got my attention! ...So, now that I'm strongly interested... What should I expect if this crated Outlander lands on my companies loading dock? I have tools, but can anyone help me to understand what kind of effort is involved in getting it ride worthy? THANKS!!

I'd guess it would look like this:

You'll probably have to bolt on tires, bumpers, and bars. I think some manufactures ship them fully assembled or fully assembled with just the front tires off so that it lowers the handlebars to clear the crate. Make sure you check all fluids prior to start up.

Here is what mine looked like,I forgot about the handlebars and the XT bumpers needs to be put on... Super easy. You must be getting a SUPER deal... How much are you paying for it?

Welcome to Facebook


The Outlander XXC was shipped with out the headlights or front bumper installed. Not sure if this was just because of the different Front bumper or not. Why the headlights where not installed beats me. Click the above "Welcome to facebook to see the picture of it just out of the crate.

Thanks

I bought mine from the dealer in the "crate". I didn't do anything to it. The only problem was that the tires were flat on the bottoms from sitting in the crate to long.
I got new tires from the dealer.

If it's new, old stock, you'll need to make sure any recall work gets done on it.

The deal was not available with the, "...'08, in crate, Outlander, 800..." . The connection I had was to contact Berts Motorcycle Mall in CA. Although extrodinary in their pricing - they could not match the opportunity I already had. It was worth the look however for my future bikes! Thank you all for your responses!

I'm not sure about a "normal option"... For most dealers, I would imagine they may charge $xxx for "shipping, assembly, dealer freight, unpackaging, reading instruction, finding their tool box... etc." What may be the case is with a super store like Berts... (others too I'm sure) is that older model years may be significantly discounted - and boxed in the back with dust collection in progress. I'd certainly (1) be patient and (2) shop around for a super deal! I do know that on Monday 9/13/10, they had an '08 500 class Outy for around $5600...
