I just got a quote from LA Yamaha for $6799 OTD. They are normally the cheapest prices in socal. However, in another thread (http://www.thumperta...ghlight=pricing), one guy said he got his for $6399 otd in the LA area. Is he full of it or has anyone else seen pricing like that?

His price is a product of wishful thinking and a wild imagination.

I believe he worked his deal, without tax and license.....just like a Canadian Bike deal.............

When and or if he registers.......he will have to pay tax............

Does LA Yamaha even have them? Nothing listed on their site.

This is the place he said he got it for $6399.

Bert's in Covina went $100 (each) better than LA when my buddy and I bought a pair of WR250's last Christmas.

Greg doesn't have any in yet. I like to find my best deal and present it to him. If he will match it, I'll buy from him.

He did on one bike. He is kinda quirky to deal with. You have to be patient with his lack of customer service skills.

Yeaaa Jimbo, GO BLUE DUDE!!!!

So the YZ is the winner of the blue/orange contest? You couldn't go wrong in that group, the YZ is just a little narrower in focus vs. the 450XCs wider range.

Greg has been pretty good to me as long as I didn't act like I was in a rush to get a bike. On my 02 YZ he was within $100 of the best price I found out of town.

Those orange things are overrated!!!

I don't disagree that the orange things are overrated... but there is no clear winner right now. I am still bouncing between the XC, the YZ and the WR. Each bike is a great bike having its own pros and cons. Apparently the only cons the YZ has is high cost (at least until they have been on the market for a while), no e-start and a red sticker.

International Motorcycle Brokers are advertising that they can deliver an 06 YZ450 for $6199. Add tax and registration and that comes to about $6700. I wonder if Greg can get within $100 of that?

Sloow... don't think I don't know that you only want me to get the YZ because you want to ride it!!

You got that right!!!

My concern with the YZ is gotta be its moto only focus. Its gonna be stiff and extremely responsive, as needed for racing. And gearing is a trailriding compromise with the close ratio 5 speed. It can have a good top speed, or a good crawler gear, but not both.

It's got the top speed. Gear ratios:

2005:
1st Gear 27/14 (1.929)
2nd Gear 25/16 (1.563)
3rd Gear 23/18 (1.278)
4th Gear 21/20 (1.050)

2006:
1st 1.929
2nd 1.533
3rd 1.278
4th 1.091
5th 0.952

The real difference is in 4th and 5th.

Wow... I am surprised to see that. I was under the impression that the gearing was going to be nearly the same as the 05 with a low first gear added. Apparently, first gear is the same. Hhhhmmmm.....
