I recently bought a 2009 WR450F off a guy who used it purely as a dirt bike for approximately $3200. Upon a quick overview the bike seemed to be in decent condition, but after taking a closer look it seems like it may have gone through more abuse than I initially determined. There are no recorded hours or milage. The odometer has been removed as well by one of the owners, but honestly it never really gave any useful information beyond trip meters. Two things really caught me off guard. There seems to be no oil line at the front of the crank case like I see in other bikes. The coolant overflow reservoir has also been bypassed and removed.
I'd like to get the opinion of experienced riders on the condition of this bike. This is something that I'd like to convert to street use (supermoto), but a rebuild of an engine is not on the list for both financial and time reasons. The guy said it had low hours, but I'm not so sure about that.
