He recommends the XR400 because he has won on it! It is a great bike..... I invite you to come ride the SERA. I should take Dwight's advice, but instead I will be going with the WR250F, as soon as I can find one....
I confirmed today, some WR450F's have shipped, and one was picked up in Utah. Most will not get theirs till MARCH .... I will have a WR250F in February... over and out...

Lets all try to get along.
Last time we had problems with south you know what happened.
I'm way to busy to go down there.

Unlike his posts and boasts, mine was a statement of fact.
I made the post as a gesture of good will, and was not in any way negative. Considering the pandemonium generated by the trolling that occurred, this was most definately an olive branch.
I guess I'm just another damn yankee... ...and I'm too busy too.

I just talked to several dealers in the great white north and they don't know when they will get any WR450's,to date the one dealer has seen a YZ450 and that's it.Same story for some of the biggest dealers in western Canada(Blackfoot Motorsports in Calgary).Don't know if there is a problem with the bikes but they sure are not showing up when they were supposed to.
As to the weight of the WR450 I do hope it is close to the weight of the KTM450EXC otherwise it is gonna be too heavy.Riding a DRZ for a couple of years I've been there and don't want to go back.
Oh well I guess I can always buy a CRF450 and be happy!!

he said, "Yes there definately is. They won't tell you because they would lose sales, you would buy something else. For example, if it were a "lot" of bad cranks, you wouldn't wait. The first WR 450 shipments went to California, Utah and Washington State. We don't know if those bikes were affected. They could get the problem fixed and resume shipping anytime. They won't tell us anymore."

"He said no bikes will ship anytime soon." Now you've embellished that with a post explaining that CERTAIN states got the WR, and that Yamaha is unsure if it's A LOT of bad cranks.
So when you said that no WRs would be available until March, you meant except for the many, many WRs that went to three large states? You forgot Oregon and Arizona, by the way.
And when you said "production hold," you meant a possible production hold, because there may not be a problem? Or there may not be a problem with the first shipments at all, and Yamaha could fix the "bad" WRs that are yet to arrive?
Everyone saw your hoax, and now you're trying to change your tune. Isn't it funny how your new "specifics" would be hard to refute: the bikes may or may not be affected, those affected could be recalled easily anyway, the dealer doesn't have more info., etc.
I bet you inhaled deeply. I know you'd swear you didn't. Please, please continue. This is classic. LMFAO

You must admit his hoax is at least getting more complex. Now it's "specific" states only. This guy is too much.
'Bama, from now on, I'll just nod and grin. You rule.
