Well, after searching endlessly for a few weeks now, I was able to find an 06' WR450 for a reasonable price, need a little work as the front fork seals are starting to go, but other than that it seems pretty sound. It's basically bone stock except for bars and brush guards and front frame plates. Cant wait for the work week to end.

Where are you planning to ride that thing? Did the previous owner give you the AIS just in case you need it to ride in one of the SVRAs

Nice find. Barely used finds like this kick ass!

I think his search was for a reasonably price WR that was in great condition...not necessarily an 06 :worthy:

I bought the 06' only because it was a good price, I had the intention on getting an 07' with the new frame, but they are hard to come by under 3500 (btw, I picked mine up for 2900) Oh and will the rangers look for the AIS stuff when I pull into the park? I'm not sure if it is removed yet or not. Haven't had enough time to go through the bike completely, plus it's my first four stroke. I plan on using it up in the foresthill, georgetown area then branching out across the state once I pickup my own trailer. Currently I have to rely on the kindness of my friends.

They will not check at FH or GT but they will check at prarie shitty, mammoth bar, carnegie, and hollister hills.

Yes the previous owner of your bike removed the AIS. This is what the side of the engine looks like with the AIS installed. Note the air pump behind the kickstarter and all the plumbing that routes above the header and into the cylinder head.

That sucks about the ais crap, oh well. I would be nice to head out to shitty city and mammoth once and a while after work because they are close. Oh well I can always give it a shot. Yeah we are all gonna have to meet up some time and get a group ride one of these days. I can't wait to pick up a trailer for myself, sucks only owning a car.
