Hey guys...
Well I think I got my camera figured out and my TRX now looks RED instead of orange. The sun started to fall so some of the pics are kind of shaded or glazed looking because I didn't have much light to work with. But I decided to keep it so I went out and spent some more money on it :D .









And here is a pic of my new truck with my R. :D



Thanks
Dave

I was going to sell it to you... :D But you said you got a deal through the local dealer and passed on mine <_< . It isn't for sale any longer though. Didn't get very many serious inquiries so I decided to keep it.

Hey I gotta tell you that was some of the most intense wheeling and dealing I've ever done. We were down to a few hundred bucks, some handguards and skidplates when the deal folded. Close but no cigar (or 450r) for now. Timing was just a tad bit off. I'm glad you decided to keep it though insted of sell it to someone for a couple hundred more than I offered.

Haha ya that is very true Danny G. I would have love to sell it to you because from talking to you really seems like a cool dude. I just told my self to not drop below 6000 and if I did I was going to take something off of it to make me get at least 6000 for it. No big deal, if you bought one or are gonna buy one I am sure you will enjoy riding it.

DannyG, it sounds like you're on the west coast. A local dealer is selling 05' 450r's here for $5900+tax. They even have one with a full Rossier pipe, HRC kit and a Max-power 480 kit already installed $7500+tax. The last one is a great deal. Even with the better deals you can get off the internet on prices this extra(plus labor) isn't that bad. For what I got in mine this would have been a steal. Good Luck...... BTW I'm in Wisconsin

Yeah I'm on the west coast where people pay too much for quads, homes and gas. I have a price locked in at a dealer for $6,150 OTD but normally they are getting $7,000 and up.

Hey Danny G. It may be worth it for you to take a trip out here. I bought mine about 4 moths ago for 5500 even OTD. If you back 8% out of that for the sales tax that is what you would pay for it. But you would have to add the tax back in from California if you plan on regestering it which I think is a must in Ca but not 100% sure though.

Bummer, should have gave me a call. I had to swing by my house real quick and grab somethin. I could have gotten my trailer and picked you up. It was a sweet ride. It rained a little bit and the temps dropped nicely. Nothing like wet desert dirt and the smell of fresh rain and desert while your riding :D .

Hey where did you get that bar clamp. I've been looking for a tall 1 1/8" clamp and I can't find a decently priced one around.

Hey Dave I had the all black Tag bar set up on my KFX400 and it's sweet. The only thing is I wished it had another inch or so rise to it, I like as much rise as I can get with a stock stem.
I haven't seen one installed on a 450r yet but I've seen the kit in the store and the clamp didn't look as tall as the Trail Tech. You might want to check that out before you drop the $210 for the Tag kit.

Actually the more I think about it I may be better off going with a different bar rather than a different clamp. I really like the looks of the Trail Tech and I think with a flatter bar it would be very comfy.
