Non ABS in the states is $3700.00 dealer cost. Honda built a $300.00 margin into the bike for its' dealers. So the dealer can choose what to do with that. Freight and setup or optional costs as far as I know. That is, I think the dealer has the the choice rather to charge their customer for that or not.

My dealer in Southern IL does not. But I would expect a meager paper shuffling/processing fee besides tax and license. If your OTD price is really good the dealer is not making much on the sale but probably expects to recoup that with your next bike purchase when your ready to move up.

I will take my bike in for the 600 mile service but I will do the oil and filter change myself before I take it in. No point in being charged the dealers labor rate for that sort of thing. Dealers charge by the hour so why not make it as easy as possible for them?
