Just bought a new 2013 WR450F today. I get to pick it up tomorrow after they uncrate it, grease it and put it together. I think i got a decent deal. 7650 base price and then added tax and 100 bucks for doc fee. ~8k out the door. I was going to get a KTM 350 or 450, but i don't like the nearest KTM dealer; the dealer that i do business with only deals Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha. I was doing some reading on the new WR's and was pretty impressed and decided to check them out. I wasn't planning on buying this early, but the deal came up and at a good time since i'm racing this weekend and my old bike is having issues. Nothing major, just stuff that requires getting into the motor and also replacing the fork seals. So i'm picking the bike up tomorrow around 3PM taking it to the track, get used to riding a 4-stroke again, setting up the suspension and then racing a ~100 mile race Sunday. Should be interesting. (Unfortunately, i work 12hrs Friday and Saturday and i'm having new floors put in so i won't get much more time on the bike besides ~3-4hrs)The consensus i read online is that they're pretty darned good. I also read that the motor is near bullet proof if you take care of it. The only thing i'm doing to it is putting the GYTR silencer and the competition ECU. Not sure what else i'd need besides an aluminum skid plate and i'm using my red bark busters off my other bike. It will look funny, but it beats cracking my knuckles on trees. What does everyone think of the newer WR's??
