First post here.

I'm thinking about purchasing a canadian 02 YZ426 from a guy in Washington who imports them.

First of all, the price is $4900 plus $75 to ship it to SLC, Utah. Sound like a good price? Are there better deals elsewhere?

Second, are there any differences between the canadian and u.s. models?

Third, any warnings or horror stories about purchasing a bike in this manner?

My 250F is Canadian. Had no problems at all with the purchase. Probably the easiest vehicle purchase I've made.

That is a very good price in my opinion... and the shipping, are you kidding, $75 from anywhere to SLC, is a deal.

I think they come with different tires and you will be buying it as "used" since it had to be imported for outside the U.S.
