Early this morning I asked if they would accept an offer for the RZV front mid panels. They said no, but did reduce the price a bit more on eBay. They are still well overpriced at $625 Cdn each shipped. They did send a link to better photos and the panels are in worse condition than eBay shows. I was only interested because they looked like they might be useable without needing to repaint. That isn't the case. I'll paint what I have here.

So yes, they will negotiate, but the end result is still too pricey. They were clear that they would not reduce the price again. It is what it is. We're back to Bolly's point, this seller is very expensive, but also your point, don't buy if you don't like the price.

John

I notice that in dealing with Japan if you attempt to star a conversation in Japanese. Then if they find out you speak English. They want to practice English with you. This is one way to break the ice. Anyway it work for me in the past.
