It's $399 for a 700 & $329 for a 450. I was quoted (just for my 700) $780 for the same parts from Clearbrook Yamaha.

From what I've seen, go with Ricochet. Full aluminum including the foot rests which we've probably all have noticed can't take a hit from anything. I've put so many holes through mine from sticks it's ridiculous.

Check these out. If you can get them at a good group buy, I'd be in.
