Anyone have a clue when the 03 WR's will be released?? First I heard late Oct., then mid Nov., now I've been told late Jan. If I have to wait any longer I'm going to spend the money on the new yamaha snowmobile with the R1 power plant in it. Have you seen that thing!!!! 145 horses on a snowmobile. SICK

Keep in mind that the dock strike on the west coast put everything back nearly a month. I spoke with both our Yamaha dealers here and they said they're just now starting to receive their delayed shipments. They're fully expecting to get the first WR's anyday now.

Careful on the Yamaha sled. My fried who works as a mechanic at the dealership said to wait AT LEAST a year on that model. Yamaha didn't develop a new clutch and he believes the low end torque is going to be too much for their set up. Yamaha used the largest clutch and the heaviest shift dogs they had off of the shielf but I bet you'll see a whole new clutch on future models. After that look out! :)

I checked with my dealer who is one of the top three in Utah. Yamaha told him that he will not get his WRs until January. I would not get your hopes up for a December bike.

Was it a WR250 or 450? What year is your DRZ? I have a 01426 and a 02Drz400. I'd understand better how it feels if I know this. I have a WR450 on order and I don,t want to make a mistake buying it.

I just called Bubba Bardwells and they wouldn't give me a price, and didn't have or know when they were getting any WRs in. Hope some of you have better luck than I did.
