I went to the local Yamaha dealer today looking to add a 450 eps to the stable. He told me he sold out all his inventory for the year and doesn't know when anymore will be available,he added that he has been selling them as fast as he can get them. He also said the plant in Atlanta just opened back up after being shut down for the rona virus and had no timeline on when things would be rolling out. What's the situation in your area?

They have them sitting in the showrooms around here in Michigan. Where are you at?

I know that when I was looking that I would put what I wanted into the search function of Craigs List. It was surprising at how many dealers were on it and what I was looking for always popped up.

Same here in the Vancouver area. I had a deal on a green Kodiak and just couldn't abide the colour so the sales guy called his supplier looking for another one with no luck. Said something about Covid-19 / factory output. Another dealer told me the same thing*. They had what they had on the lot and that was it. Didn't know when the 2021 models were coming in. *Edit: grammar

Good morning everyone. I am a maintenance mechanic at a factory In Oklahoma and we import parts from China and assemble here for Polaris. First part of this year China stopped shipping parts due to C-19. We had nothing to build and ship to Polaris. Same thing every where I'm sure. I'm guessing that there done for this year and working on next years models when they roll back up into full production. That's just my take on it.

I'm in southern Indiana and my local dealer has one SE Grizzly and one SE Kodiak on the floor but he said it could be late July, early August before he sees anymore...matter of fact he said that about everything on the floor. His warehouse is empty and has nothing to restock with.

So are you still going to wait till mid July to buy if there is only one left?

Yes, I found another dealer about 40 miles from me in Bloomington IN, he has a Kodiak EPS 700 that should be in stock around July. His prices are way better than my local dealer, about $1500 cheaper out the door better.

I went by two different Yamaha dealer‘s today swung into both to look around. First one only had 1 Burgundy Kodiak 450 nothing else. The second dealer had 1 burgundy Kodiak 450 and one grizzly in silver that was it. Stock really depleted since I was last in these places.
