Math: Avgerage speed while on a dirt bike is 24 mph...Take 900 divided by 24 and you get 37 hours.
In comparision my 03 WR450 has over 200 hours on it...reverse the math...that's 4,800 miles.
The early production models of the 2003 did have some starter issues with them. Do a search on "woodruff key" and/or "starter upgrades".

Why would you want to trade for an older, slower, and heavier bike, especially when yours has upwards of $1000 in upgrades? I flat out wouldn't trade for it. There were no problems with the WR in 03 that I can recall. If you were to do this, I'd want his bike and a couple grand in cash to boot.
Amen to this. There's lot's of reasons why you might want the WR over the YZ ( and lots of reasons why you might not) which you didn't get into, but I don't think I'd trade straight across.

I'm still looking into getting a WR. I may just sell the YZ.

Do a search on Woodruf Key and you will find out why you shouldnt buy a 03
Yawn....oh no not the dreaded woodruf key, because as we all know it failed on nearly every bike, and even then it was impossible to fix and dont mention the HUGE cost......yeah no matter what ever you do DONT buy a 03, that is of course if you value peoples opinions who probably also think the moon landing was a conspiracy
