Anybody see a NEW US 450F for less than this?

2003 YAMAHA YZ 450F - brand new, only $5899 + tax, lic, doc, , Alba Action Sports, 12555 Poway Rd just 15 minutes N of Qualcomm Stadium, call (858)486-4380 ask for CORY.

I called on this to be sure it's not BS. he told me it is a one only "loss leader" (vin #612900 only) but who cares, for me in Kern county it's 6424 OTD. Call "Cory". I don't know these guys or have any interest in this other than seeing some fellow TT'er get the DEAL. $5899 is a smoken price for a NEW YZ450F, less than guys have been asking for used here! It's a 4 hour one way drive or I'd be ON IT.

Tell him you saw it on ThumperTalk!. :)

I was talking to a dealer in hayward and he said they were selling them at 5799 plus fees.That is a great price.If you want their number use the find a dealer and use zip 95117.

Thats a Good Price. I'd bought one in Cali for that price. :)

They just don't get it.............

Thats why I have two Canadian models in my Garage....... eeehhhhh

What were the fees, doc, + etc.

A lot of people have warned me that dealers place ads like that and tell you what you want to hear on the phone. Then, when you get down there all hot and ready to buy the bike they pull one of several scams, 1) The "loss-leader" has been sold 2) the fees, doc, set-up, + prep are outrageous bringing the OTD to over $7,000, or 3) The ad was a mistake.

Why would any dealer have to have a "loss-leader" on this year's hottest bike? If it sounds too good to be true...

Be careful, don't get taken after driving 4+ hours.

Good Luck,

Joe will sell them to you all day for $5700 or $5800 out the door.(cannot remember which as the crf and yzf are within a hundred bucks) no scams or bs. in fact my buddy bought a yz426 from them new last year for 4900 otd. can't beat that!

Whats a "loss leader"?

It's no B.S., I know what questions to ask. :D

AS I put in my post the OTD price is $6424. That includes the fees. It's a cool bike but with supply catching up with demand only one thing will happen in the free market...prices come down. :)

And buying used doesn't save those fees. It's not "fair" in my book but, you still have to pay sales tax and transfer fee on a used bike.

( A loss leader is a product advertised at a good price to generate traffic at the dealership. Check the car ads in any Sunday paper and you'll see a bunch of them!)

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      Alright so I’m new to the site so maybe this question has already been asked. I have a 2002 Yz426f and I want a new exhaust, it has the stock header and silencer and sounds amazing but I’d like a little more from it, I know I want the fmf power bomb header and am kind of undecided on the silencer, I see on fmf’s website that their silencer will add low end and slightly take from top end and the other way around but I’m looking for increases throughout rpm range. I do a lot of trail, hill climbs, jumps, and wheelies so kind of need good performance everywhere in the rpms. My question is what silencer I should get and the jetting I should get for the carb. Thanks

      2005 YZ450F, Athena Big Bore, Power Bomb, Q4.
      Ok.  Last fall after a decently hot day at the track, I noticed coolant leaking from the weep hole on my water pump after pulling into the pits.  Ordered an Athena re-seal kit, put it all back together and didn't really get a chance to ride it.  3 weeks ago, went out to the track, and after about 20 laps, it started leaking again.  Kept filling it with water to get thru the day, never ran anywhere close to dry or empty, jut a cup or 2 low.  Ordered a Hot Rods re-seal kit with bearing and also ordered a new w/p shaft.  Did it all again and got it back together, ran it, and as soon as it got to temp, it was leaking out of the weep hole again.
      So, what the heck am I missing?  I'm totally stumped on this one.  Is something wrong with my case cover?  Do I need to replace the w/p itself?  I'm feeling like I should've just ponied up for the Boysen in the first place, and now it's biting me in the butt.  Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

      Alright guys, my 04 YZ450f runs fine minus some slight backfires when decelerating (need to adjust fuel screw). The other day when I was done checking my valve clearances I changed the oil and filter and put the bike back on the stand, kicked it a few times without the ignition coil in to get some oil flowing got off and noticed a little drip spot on the ground, it was no bigger than a dime so I thought nothing of it. Started the bike with no issues took it for a quick 10-15 min ride, came back to the garage to find out my whole case was soaked with oil and it started pooling in the low spots on the clutch basket side. I cleaned all the oil off and took it out again for 5 mins to try and see where it was coming from, here are my three possible places but nothing directly leads me to believe it’s any of the three either.
      1. Decompression plug area
      2.  Valve cover gasket leak (not really sure because the amount of oil leaking Looks to be a large amount
      3. Oil tank (bad weld or cracked weld somewhere
      what are you guys thinking?
