I was going to buy that bike of eBay I posted earlier this week, but I emailed the guy asking for his phone number so I could go take a look and he never got back to me. Anyhow, I went to the local dealership and was looking around and after seeing how pretty the new quads are, I'm getting one. I asked him the absolute cheapest OTD price I could get and he told me $6200. I called him back the next day and said I'm bringing in a check for $6000 and if I can't get anything I'll go somewhere else. He then said I could have either an '08 YFZ 450 or '07 450R OTD for that price. I know this isn't the best price, but it's the best around here. Which should I choose? The YFZ is a year newer, but I like the looks of the Honda alot more. They YFZ feels a little better though. I'm lost.

if i were you i would go with the honda. the yfz may be a little faster out of the box but honda is the most reliable bike i have ever owned. have not had to replace a thing on it yet.

6,200 is not bad.

buy the bike that you want. seems like youre leaning towards the YFZ since you almost bought a used one. its up to you, both bikes are reliable, fast. good luck, let us know what you decided on.

If your from WV you could travel down to Union City to Abernathy's.

They normally have 1 year old models dirt cheap. I paid 5999.00 in 04 for my YFZ450. At the time the TRX450R was 5699.00

I paid a little extra for the Yamaha because at the time I already had a 300ex and 400ex. I wanted something different in the garage. haha

I paid less for my 07 last spring plus I got $200 towards a helmet... I'd go Honda but tell him that the price you want is $5700 IMO.

if you were commited to spending $ 6200

They won't go any lower than $6000. I have to know the price before hand so I can go and get a loan and then bring the check in. I'll look into that Abernathy cycles. And sandshots, I was leaning Honda it just seems like all the good deals I find are Yamaha. That's probably a bad thing lol.


Edit** Just looked into Abernathy cycles and it's a 9 hour drive from northern WV. I'll pass. Thanks though.

6000 is out the door guys. that includes taxes and title fees. not a bad price.

personally, the comfort and ergo's of a honda make it a winner hands down.

morgantown just a couple hours from me. your not far from high point ( mt. Morris ) either.

New to the site, hello everyone.

I'd suggest going with the honda in your situation but its still totally up to you. I own an 05' r and I love it to death. I've ridden an 05' yzf and I just didn't enjoy it as much. More than likely only because I'm used to my own quad, but it my opinion. I've also have had very good luck with my r being reliable. Probably not much help but thats my two cents. $6000 is a very decent price as well. GL and I'm sure you'll love whatever you get.

oh and I live about 4 hours from Morgantown, WV here in Carroll County Maryland. Some of my favorite riding up around deep creek and Hancock. :):
