    Thats weird better check your dealers because in Mexico 07 450´s are already out to the market, of course at USD $12,000!!!
  4. Anybody hear anything about the ´07 coming out to the floors, im desperate like never before!!! Sold my KTM 525EXC to go for the blue, but for a time ive been without a bike... Last week I was at Phoenix and ask about every dealer for them and some told me that they have some in there warehouses or storage facilities but they tell me that Yamaha wont let them out till they run out of ´06. Is this true??? Thanks...
  5. Hey Dave. First to give you thanks for your response. Second I do believe your comments and its been known that mexican gas is low in octane. Im on my way to buying that piston kit. Thanks once again for your help!!!
  6. I own a 2003 525 EXC and I have ride it just a bit like 10 times at most, my main concern is that by the 5th ride i had to change piston rings and now once again, but my mechanic is telling me I also need to change the piston with the rings. So anybody knows where is this problem coming from or what is causing this? Every single time I use this bike my mechanic does a full service so maybe you guys can give me a hand on this one. Also where can I buy this things(piston, rings, etc...). And around how much $ will I be paying for? Any stores recommended? THANKS.

  9. I have a 2003 525 EXC. And on the left top side of the motor it has like a small factory sideway drill hole and it seems that from there small amounts of anti-freeze are coming out of it. Does anybody knows what is that about, is it bad, can i fix it with a radiator sealer??? Any help or advice would be great!!! THX...
  10. Can somebody help I just broke the rear bearing this weekend, but here in Mexico its hard to find KTM stock parts, so my question is: are the bearings on the KTM brand KTM or are they another brand like SKF or like anyother??? Does it matter ther brand??? Is there a special measure for the rear and front?? My bike is a 2003 525 EXC. Will there be a problem if i put SKF bearings on it?? Last thing I broke the rear probably jumping but the highest I got to jump was about 8 feet high, aren´t this bikes supposed to take this preasure on thi small jumps??? THANKS!!!

    2006 Wr450f Financed $$$

    Guys thank you for all of your comments and suggestions, and of course I will run away from this deal, best thing to do is that im going to wait for December and pay for it full ca$h this way is going to save me lots of buck$ for all the extras and lots of time for the payments. Once again you were very helpful to me.
  15. Well guys i have been trying to get for a long time the 2006 WR450F I got a dealer in Arizona and so they told me the price for the bike was 6,300 but i got it financed and they are asking me for a downpayment of $1,300 and 60 months of $134 at the end of five years im going to be paying around $9,340 how do you see this deal is it a rip off, is it ok or they are seeing me a stupid face, could you please give me a hand with this, thank you...
