Hey TTers,

I have a friend named Matt who is looking to buy a brand new 02' YZ426 in the next 2 months or so. I have seen a few posts that people have gotten a new 426 for around $5000-$5500 OTD! Here in Houston TX we pay MSRP which is $5999, so OTD it is around $6300! I think this is absurd and he is looking for the best price (arent we all LOL) I thought that if he could pick up a new bike for $5500 OTD plus shipping, he still would save $500 or so! So all you guys who got your YZ's for cheap could you please post the dealer and the phone # ( I swear I saw someone on this forum who got a brand new one for like $4850 OTD? :) ...that makes me cringe when I payed $6250 for mine!)! My friend will appreciate any info you guys have! Thanks a bunch,

Garrett Berg

I get my kicks on a 426!

I think most of the people are getting these good deals now that the "new" models are getting ready to hit the showroom floors.
I paid $5100.00 OTD, but buy at least 1 new bike a year from this dealer and buy most of my after market parts from him too.
There are some tricks you can use at any dealer. Let me know and I can e-mail you if you are still interested.

Hey Wildair99,

Yeah, could you please give me the name of the dealer and the phone #, I would appreciate it alot...Matt is only getting a new bike and would like to get a 02' or a new 01' in a month or so (he has had bad luck with used bikes). Thanks for any info you have,

Hi there, I live in the Houston area and I,ve bought the last four atv/bikes from Motion Cycles in DeRidder, LA. Ask for Daryl. 337-463-8110. They have an 800 number I cant find it right now. Oh yeah, I bought my O1/426 for $5,200 after calling all around Houston, just to be told sorry! Good Luck.
