Im looking at an 08 and 09 YZ 450 holdovers. There is $400 difference in price. Is the 09 substantially different than the 08, or basically the same.

rear end is much better, better hubs and brakes, option of black wheels, and probably a better resale value. Id get the 09 :)

$400 out the door.....that's a tough one. Since neither are FI, well, dang still a tough one. I'd get the 09. Or wait a few months when the 2011 is out in October-ish (presumed) and snag an 09 for even less.

Replacement wheels are cheaper on E-bay for the 2008. The 09 has a different size rear hub. Food for thought.

True, but I see 2008 and earlier wheels having less value in a few years.

I would go with the 2009 for a $400 difference.
