My guess is the owners upgraded to the 07 or above to get the aluminum frame.
I´m one of those, i had the WR450F 05 (same model 06) and upgraded to 07 (aluminum frame, new lights design, wider footpegs, protaper handlebar), but great bikes both of them.

The other "major" difference (if it matters at all to you) is there are almost no aftermarket decal kits for the 03-04. 2005+ have a great selection.
If you can get a good 2006 for a decent price go for it. Check the valves, clean the air filter and re oil with the proper oil, change the engine oil and filter, check all suspension bearings for play / roughness and replace as necessary, and check tire pressure etc.
If it's not already done do the grey wire / throttle stop mod too (this isn't a reliability thing, it's purely performance).
After all that is done you'll have a reliable machine.
