Call Brad at 1-800-762-4386, and no I'am not the dealer nor do I work for him, I checked all around Utah and he's the best price I found, got my WR450 ordered from him,

i'm in saint john and it's full list here , i know one of the sales guys at maclean's power sports but i don't think he'd knock off any more than $200 . i've called atlantic yamaha before regarding pricing on other bikes and the feeling i got from them was "take it or leave it thats the price". wr450's will be in short supply this year and that is keeping prices high , maybe next year they'll be more willing to cut you a deal . at the current asking price (and delivery?)for a wr450 i would seriously consider a ktm . as an added bonus the distributor for ktm is located in woodstock nb .
hey , did you go on the turkey run in moncton this year ? some friends of mine went and had a great time , i'll have to go next year , i heard the trails are pretty good up there .

I am still thinking about a YZ426 as opposed to the WR450 as the 246 engine is proven and relatively bullet proof. I worry that for a trail bike, the weight saving stuff that Yamaha did to the YZ450 will also be found in the WR and my concern is longevity of the lighter parts. I think it is great for a race bike but for how I ride here, not racing, a bit more weight with better durability is the prefered choice.
I'm in the process of selling my 97 WR250 (2 stroke) and as soon as I have the dollars in my hand its off to the dealership.
Why don't you drop me your e mail address so we can hook up this comming spring once the white stuff is gone. I know there riding North of Saint John, I was rock climbing at Welsford this fall and at the top of the rock face you could hear a couple of thumpers having fun in the distance. Here is my address
What are you riding now??

just so happens i'm about a 15 minute drive from welsford , i live in grand bay and my two friends that went to the turkey run are from grand bay as well , one rides a yz426 and his twin brother rides a kx250 although he's going to trade in the spring for a ktm 200sx . shoot me a pm , i'd really like to ride some new trails and i'm sure i could round up a few others . i know where you're coming from regarding the wr450 , a left over yz426 can be had for a decent price around here and with a few mods it would make an excellent choice , minus that magic button of course
