Bandit, I am waiting for you to build this bike so I can see if I want one. Do you get "Dirt Bike" magazine. Would like to read the article on Neely's bike when it comes out.

No, I don't get either magazine any more. They seem to be full of shit.

I will get to ride Brian's bike again soon but it is completely stock except for a Scotts damper. He has done nothing to it, not even adjusting the sag. Power in stock form feels like a 400. Suspension, as soft as it is, is still remarkable compared to my '06 with Race Tech mods. Bike is tall. Needs a seat job. Nothing money can't fix. Looking at a $9k bike just to get it dialed in. Another $1k to get it tricked out.........Used bike might be the way to go.

Navaho there are used bikes out there. I just picked up a used 2013 WR450F for $8K out the door with less than 100 miles. It has the GTYR silencer & ECU, IMS tank, Cycra full wrap hand guards, Baja dual sport light kit. You are correct about the seat, I am waiting for mine to get back from SDG where they are cutting the foam to lower it 1" to 1.25".

Pat I'm seeing brand new 2012's for less than $6k on Cycletrader.
I got mine a few months ago for $6k out the door. Only a fool would pay MSRP.
