Here in Ohio, I beleive I get a 6 month warranty from Yamaha as well, I just called the dealer a few days ago asking if my (lol..) front fork seals were covered, he said no. lol.. but I originally called to see if I purchased a warranty with my bike (i didnt, bad idea? not sure). But yeah, he told me yamaha gives theyre bikes a 6 month factory warranty.

Directly from Yamaha's site. The last line says 30 days limited warranty. Not sure how people are getting 6 months? Is that an extended warranty or standard?

The warranty is 30 days from the factory. However, there is a "loophole" in Yamaha warranty law where you can buy an extended warranty for up to 3 years.
