Don't waste the time or money. It would cost you much much more than if you just sold your bike and bought an aluminum framed 450.

...it works, but you will need either an external oil tank or a wet sump kit to begin with, and the rest of the conversion and adaptation will add up to more than simply selling yours for $1500 and getting an '06 for $3-3500.

The thing to bear in mind is that the frame alone won't make your suspension work any better, and the '06 aluminum bike was one pound lighter than the '05 steel bike.

The '06 is a package, ready to use. If you want one, buy one.
