Will the bike need the top end rebuilt every 50 hours like a MotoX bike?
VERY reliable! 4,000+ miles on the original top end.
I'm assuming your dad is looking at the 2005 WR450 model as it's green-stickered in Kalifornia?

I mentioned to him that he might be able to get a good deal on an 03 because of the shearing key problem, however I think he'd rather get a brand new bike.
It's funny because the TT-R 250 was his first bike after about 15 years of not riding a bike (he had a three wheeler and a quad in the mean time). The fun on that lasted a few months, and now he want's a bigger engine, hence the trade for a WR450!

You can get it plated in another state, but not without bending some rule or another. It really sucks.
Wrong!!!!! Got mine plated in AZ, no rules bent or even bruised......

I have been researching a way to get a legit license for my bike here in California for almost 2 years now. The laws keep getting tighter. Been looking into a "Specially Constructed Vehicle" plate, but it costs several hundred dollars, so I hear. May give that a try.
