I'm starting to look for a new WR 450 to replace my trusty WR 426 and I know that there has to be some good deals out there. I have been watching for used ones but it seems like a new one could be had for just a few bucks more. I live in Fresno and the dealers around here seem to want top doller:bonk: I know its a buyers market and I'm ready to score a deal:thumbsup: I have know problem driving down to socal if need be. I would really like to find an 09' if possible since there were really no changes from 07+ but an 11' would work too. I did call a dealer in the San Diego area just for fun because they listed an 09' for a good price, but they said they were all gone:banghead: They did offer an 09' CRF 450X for about $6400.00 OTD (without any negotiating)but I know I can do better. I'm not opposed to the Honda either (for the right price) but I have been so happy with my Yamaha I would really like to stay blue:thumbsup:
So whats the deal? Can anyone recommend a dealer in CA? What can I reasonably expect to pay? I don't want to deal with any BS. Just go there, get the bike and leave. When I bought my 426 from my local dealer they tried to talk me into some warranty/maintanance plan for way too much $$$$ They said bring it in every week if I want and they would check the valves:lol:. I said nope and they thought I was crazy:bonk: I can do that myself. Well guess what, 9 years later the valves still have not been touched:ride: Yes, I have checked them.
Anyways, back on track. I'm in no hurry. My current bike is great but I feel like this may be a good opportunity to take advantage of some good deals. I'm sure a new WR 450 or 450X is around the corner but the current bikes are proven and will do every thing that I need. Heck, my 02' WR still does everything I need, but I am looking for e-start and the battery so that I can set it up for HIDs and power my GPS.

Is that out the door? I think that is a fair price but I need to find one in CA.

I see that OTD Cycle in Los Angeles is under new ownership and with a new name
They were the benchmark for the best no nonsense pricing in So. CA. They don't seem to carry Yamaha as a brand any longer -- too bad.

Yes out the door. If you can't find one you may want to look at shipping to CA.

Thanks for the replies. I'm thinking I should be able to get a dealer down to $5,500 or 5,600? My local dealer has an '09 sitting on the floor for $7,200 :thumbsup: I mentioned that it is almost 3 model years old and asked if they were willing to do better. Well they never called me back so I will continue looking for a dealer that will work with me.
Cycle Trader shows several dealers with 09's so I would think these guys would be looking to unload them by I don't know. I'm not in a hurry so I will take my time and be patient. I'm in Central CA so there should be tons of dealers, especially in the LA area that would make the drive worthwhile.
