Job question

How much on average do you think a parts guy makes at a dealership??? Say some one that doesn't have experience in parts but has a general knowledge in motorcycles and such. Asking for a friend.


Thanks In advace

All depends on the shop. Some shops are 100% commish everywhere (parts included) others are mixed. Can't speak for parts, but the good salesman are making anywhere from $40-80K a year on average.

Lots of hours though, and kiss your weekends goodbye. It's not easy work, but you get to be around bikes all day... which is nice!
