I'm looking to snag a wr450 and I've hit a bit of a fork in the road. Good 2007 models go for around $5500 to $6500AU here. I was leaning towards an 07 or newer as this was the year the ally frame was introduced as well as a heap of other stuff. However, I spotted a 2004 model that hasnt clocked up alot of distance, and its going for about HALF the price of the 2007's Ive been looking at.
Ive reviewed the model/year changelist on here (was very helpful) but I'm still not sure which way I should be leaning with this decision. I thought asking wr owners might be a good place to start for advice. Is it worth saving $3000 bucks on this bike for sacrificing 3 years of better parts?
All help is appreciated.
