If your 03 WR looks like it hasn't seen much use, make sure the woodruff key issue has been addressed.
Use a hammer and punch to free up the looking ring on the shock, with a pair of gloves on just turn the spring and bottom ring to the desired stiffness. Works for me.

I can explain, but you'll likely get more info with a search for "woodruff key" in the WR450 forum.
Good idea to search for more info. BUT note that the woodruff key is not the root of the problem. You should do the starter upgrade if it hasn't been done to the bike you bought. The search engine will yield mucho info on this.
