Found one, Do I want it?

Here's my question. How much different is this bike from the 426 and what kind of reliablity has the 426 had?
My main concern is the engine, I'm coming off a 99 yz250 2 smoke. Have the valves on the 426's required constant attention like the CRF450 guys talk about or have the Yamahas been more forgiving in this respect. Is the valve train on the new bike the same as the 426 or completely new.
Reliabilty is the big QUESTION I don't want to be a gennuia pig again.

He has found a WR 450 but is afraid of the same thing. Can he expect the WR 450 to be reliable? Will it be a lemon? Should he buy it?

high pressure A/C hose
right rear power door lock
left headlight wire haress(no high beam)
right power window
left rear power door lock(waited 2 months parts this time,TSB)
last but not least rear diff chatter (carrier bearings)
They don't have a ready supply of parts for some systems which required many return visits for the same problem.
A/C 9 visits
door locks 5 visits
window only 1 that time
diff 2 visits
headlight 2 visits
Just my 2 cents but I don't feel that's a good average for a new truck with under 20,000 miles
