best otd price on 2016 YZ450

23 posts in this topic

title says it all. I got one I'm looking at and they want 9 even otd. Dang these bikes have went up since back in the 250 2t days. I remember getting them for less than 6 otd. That's a 50% increase in price! Still thinkin real hard about getting one. I've rode honda my whole life practically, but these new Yamis are lookin real good.

Thats not a bad price. Ive found that shops that move a lot of street bikes and side by sides will generally give you a better deal on dirt bikes to move them since they make more on the other stuff.

Broke her in today at a kinda sandy track. Had a blast. Great bike! Think I want to order the tuner and put in that map everyone is talking about. This is my first fi bike so the power was so linear it was kind of deceptive. The sand track kinda hid alot of power tooI believe. Ready to go to my fav track thats more clay. They were closed today or I woulda went there.

Nah, easier. And you know if the filter is actually on vs feeling around inside and around the air filter on the KTM.

YES.  A $400 "assembly" fee to zap the wheels, bars, and fork legs on, while every pivot on the bike is bone dry is basically a complete insult. 

The work takes about 20 minutes and is worth $30-40 at normal shop rate. 

 

Refuse to pay that, unless they take a few hours to go through the bike and do a proper prep on it.  Chances are they'll decline and waive the fee.

The shop i bought it from does, when they get every bike they go through and regrease everything check torque on everything, fill it with fuel and everything else. Super good guys.

Isnt there at least two bolts required to gain access to the air filter?

Its so easy. I doubt the ktm is easier. No tools required. Also if you stick something in the air scoops like a sponge or something, you can power wash the bike without water getting on the filter. Two big pluses in my book. My old 08 honda was a pain in the a $$ to change, so this is a big deal to me :-D
