04 vs 06 wr450
Posted March 24, 2008 - 04:18 PM
One is an 04, basically stock for 4 grand. The other is an 06 for 4500$. Both are essentially totally stock and very low hours. Getting the 06 would involve a LOT more driving which I am not really keen to do.
Are there any significant differences in the 04 vs 06 model years? If they are the same hours is there really any reason to drive the extra 6 hours and pay the $500 more for the 06?
Thanks for your help guys!

the 04 is already 4 years old.

However, the '06 has that nifty little computer. And they also came stock with renthal bars

I'm wondering the same thing. I may have to choose between the same years.
The '04 is red sticker. The '06 is green sticker. Its really a no brainer towards the '06 for someone who lives in CA unless they live near a place that is red sticker friendly year round.
Also, plateing the '06 is a possibility if you excersize the correct avenues. Plateing the '04 is impossible.

So other than that, no real changes to motor? Suspension? Chassis?
Thanks for the info!

If it was me, I would get the 06. Not as top heavy. Turns a lot better and would like get better resale value. 05 and 06 were very similar. 04 and 06 = big difference in handling.

[COLOR="Green"]how much time did you have on your bike before you had to adjust them?
but still the bike did not want to turn. Bulletproof bike though, valves never needed adjusting after first adjustment.
You would be surprized how much the Rekluse axle helped my 04 with the handling [/COLOR]
