I cant believe dealers are still trying to get those prices out of a 2009. I would not pay over 5K out the door for a 2009. I gave $4900 OTD last fall for a 2009 YZ450 and shortly after found them for $300 less about 3 hours away. I bought a 2009 because my buddy that bought my 1999 YZ400 still rides it. If I told you how many hard miles and hours were on that bike no one would believe it. Cases have still never been split. Everytime I ride with him I think when is this bike gonna blow. This has got to be the most reliable 450 motor to date. I figure if I get half the use out of my 2009 as he on that 1999 I will be very happy. The motor appears to have a very good track record and I am very pleased with the 2009 I purchased.
