Im stumped on this one the serial number reads its a 2006 yz450f i have never seen a 450 with that exhaust nor have I seen them have black clutch covers in 2006. My feeling are its a 2006 frame with a 2008 250 motor

My 08 engine doesn't have that external oil line just under the water pump or the one that runs up behind the cylinder. Maybe someone just swapped out covers or painted them.

Sorry, I misread you said 250 motor. Didn't the 250s have an oil res in front of the case?
