Should I get a WR450?

Pros of YZ:
1. Starting is a biiiiitch. Probably going to put an 03 cam to ease starting.
2. no light
3. quick ratio gearbox
What do you guys think of your WRs? Have you converted from YZs?
What should I expect to pay for an 03 WR450 with 700 miles?
Anything I should watch out for?

Are the 04s green sticker?

I also noticed the 03 WR450s had a woodruff key problem.
Unless you can verify that the bike has had all the starter peripheral upgrades done to it, and had the flywheel nut correctly torqued, I'd stay away from the 03s. In addition, the starters them selves are kinda suspect on the 03s.
Regarding the Green/Red sticker issue, weren't the 03's grandfathered into the Green Sticker program?

Moved "up" from a XR600R, so I can't help you with the yz/wr comparison.

yea the 04's are green sticker but they have all the smog stuff, "you remove" they are good as well, maybe 4,000 on those used
Negative! The '03 and '04 are Red sticker bikes. The 450 didn't go green until '05 with the advent of the AIS...SC
