Try Competion Accesories in Ohio. I bought my '00 WR400 from them - $100 below MSRP I think but there a $300 dollar shipping fee to have the bike sent to me. I picked it up at the railyard off the 710. I'd do it again in a heart beat.

The dealer in Calgary (mentioned above) has a 2001 WR426 on the showroom floor. At $4800 dollars, you can afford the shipping & add a bunch of accessories and still be ahead.

Walt Healy Motorcycles - (403)250-8630. Remember that they'll quote you Canadian dollars....worth about 2/3 of the U.S.

They ship a lot of bikes to the States...

The California DMV has a new requirement for 2001, an EPA sticker. This sticker apparently has the VIN # and is located somewhere on the steering head. '01 WR426's don't have this sticker. My buddy with a new Canadian '01 WR426 has been unable to get a green sticker or a plate, due to "Not EPA approved" (no sticker). He's gone through the entire registration process at two different DMV offices. The absence of a "C" or "3" in the 8th digit of the VIN # is no longer the only requirement for California (he bought the Canadian model to get a "W").

Tell your friend with the bike that cannot get a green sticker for his bike to take the ride over to Nevada go in to any motocycle shop walk right up to the counter and ask for a green sticker. If I remember correctly they are $25.00 and they don't ask to see any ID and don't check the bike what so ever.

If price is not a problem, drop by here in Finland and get yourself a real bargain: 01 WR426F $ 11857, including taxes and registration... Tax free price is only $ 8691.

Ande, WR400 99/00 registered, (approx. $ 7900)

The bike on Walt Healy's showroom floor is sold (to me) and will be picked up on Feb 3/01

They have 2 more on the way and as far as I know they are both spoken for.

Sonoma Cycles in Winnemucca NV quoted me $6600 OTD just about 2 months ago. Also, if you ever come to NV, you can get a CA NON-Resident "Green" sticker by just walking into the Yamaha dealer here in Reno for $20.00. I do it every year & I've never been asked about my residency.
