I have a deposit on a wr450, and my dealer keeps saying December, though I'd like to believe it may be a bit earlier. I have talked to several other local dealers, and many have noted that they still have 02wrs (250&426) they haven't sold yet. Because of this, they have informed Yamaha that they want their December deliveries pushed out to March 03. Part of this is due to not much riding potential December thru March here in Michigan. Some have said we can get you one in December, but I think this is a sales ploy. These March delivery dates may be happening in other parts of the country at small dealers and overstocked dealers. Some may be saying December but actually planning on a March delivery. I hope we don't have this happening to a lot of guys with deposits out there.
