I've also had a very positive response from the Canadian rep.

For what it's worth, the more people that call (including Canadians), the more Yamaha will realize the market for the 660. Not to slam the petition but I think that a phone call (they take name, number and email) has more traction.

I also called USA Yamaha Customer Service @ 1-800-962-7926.

The more people that call or email both the Canadian and US customer service the sooner we will see the 660 here.

The US rep said that she's been getting a lot of calls regarding the 660... keep it up!!! If there are any Canuck's reading this, email Scott and let him know that we want the 660!!
Hi Tofire409, I wrote emails to Scott and customer service tonight. Just another bit of fuel on the fire. Thanks for the email addresses !

Just to keep it on our minds!

I think we're all hoping some sort of epiphany will come to the people that wear suits at Yamaha this winter, but just to keep us drooling...

Just saw this in the 660's owners manual.




It looks like they wrote the manual for the US market.
