Going to look at an 09 YZ450F tomorrow. This is the first 4 stroke i've looked at, always had 2 strokes. Anything i need to look closely at? Any problems common with that year or with the bike in general? My YZ250 has been trouble free for years. Should i expect anything different from the 450?

Well, -- a 4 year old motocross bike can either be a 20 hour garage queen , a 300 hour trail grenade waiting to be put out of its misery, and all things in between.

I would try to err on the side of the 20-40 hour garage queen if at all possible
