    This is a little story about this dealer, two weeks ago i put a 200 dollar down on a new bike with the condition that i would have to back out of the deal, well i ended up having to pay for my daughters school so i called for my refund. after a week of waiting i ended up calling and asking why the refund wasn't deposited back to my card.

    The sale guy said that the manager would not refund my money and i could have an in store credit. Really don't know what to do at this point other than go pick up some parts or gear at there location/

    One thing for sure it's a lesson learned for further purchases not to deal with a dealer that has no integrity

    Did you sign anything? You could also call the credit card company.
    I would be talking to the manager.... social media is pretty powerful.

    Why would you put a deposit down on the condition that you might have to back out? From the dealers perspective that is the whole reason for the deposit, so that you won't back out. Since it's standard procedure that the deposit is non refundable, I would say you're out of luck unless you have the backing out stipulated in writing somehow.

    On the flip side, it's pretty sad for the dealer to do that because now they're potentially getting a bad rep over $200.

    I bought a new bike this year. The dealer asked for 500 and said no problem if I didn’t want to close, he would refund the entire amount.
    Didnt test him on this as I liked the bike.

    I was also told by the salesman "Chris" that if there was any reason i was not able to finish the deal that i would be refunded the full amount.

    The deal was also pending on the trade in of my KLR and the amount we could agree on of the trade in value. Meaning if i was not satisfied with the numbers they was going to offer, the deal would not go through

    You are only as good as your word, so this guy is no good! Crying over change, would mean they will screw you at any cost. Best to stay away.
    IMHO.

    Was it a street legal bike? Under the letter of the law, a deposit cannot be kept on a street legal vehicle unless damages can be proven.

    ORVs do not fall under these regs though.

    Then they have to refund your deposit unless they can prove they "special ordered" it in for you.

    In any event, show them this post and if they don't refund they are being very short sighted. Especially over 200 bucks
    They will lose waa aaay more than that from the bad publicity
