New bikes, pricing, and FMF Q2 exhaust
Posted December 12, 2005 - 09:49 AM
Anyway, I tried to order the FMF Q2 for the WR and they said FMF is stilll working on it for the 2006 and should have it fairly soon. Anybody know of another exhaust out for the 2006, or is it worth it to just mod the stock pipe with the insert?

Then I would have slapped him again for lying to you about the FMF Q2 exhaust. They are available. Get it from the Thumpertalk store, you'll save money.

The dealers are so full of crap telling me they are losing money on the deal. If that was the case, they would have been out of business a long time ago and they would not have matched another dealers advertised offer if it was not making them money. Nobody selss you a bike because they are going to loose money. They would just let you buy it from the next dealer if it wasn't right for them.

The WR '06 is just the same as all the '03 pipes.
Only the YZ's are different for '05 to '06.
Dealerships here try to screw everyone for "freight". Funny thing is, I rang up yamaha australia and they said that THEY pay for the distribution of the motorbikes EVERYWHERE AROUND AUSTRALIA.
Armed with this info, I made a few salesmen look really stupid (which isn't really that hard to do!).
Always get the recommended retail price on ANYTHING you want to buy. That way, you know what their margin of profit is and how much you can get it cheaper for. They certainly don't buy at RRP.

As for the FMF pipe, you are correct, it's not available yet, unlike someone that posted a reply to you that said it was. I called them directly last week on this. I bought a PMB for $50 and it works great. No problems, bike hauls ass and I have money in my pocket to spare!...HP increase was in the 5-6HP range according to another poster. I sure feel it and it takes just a few minutes to install.
You may want to check my previous post on this bike as I just did all the FREE mods and the bike just hauls...It's been so strong and pulls so awesome.

5-6hp.... I don't see how

so does that mean that you get 10hp if you leave it out completely?
What is different on the '06 WR compared to the '05 WR

I don't know who you talked to at FMF that said the Q2 wasn't ready for the '06, but they were HIGH ! The '05 and '06 are identical save a few little odds and ends that would not effect the exhaust. I have an '05 with a Q2, so I'd like to see the explanation for that one . Now if they were talking about the new Ti Powercore, then yes, it is unavailable until the new year...SC
