I just got a 2009 WR450. I currently have a 2006 WR450. My question is are the parts different between the bikes? I have a factory connection suspension setup on my 06 and want to put it on my 09. I know the part numbers don't match but are different by 1 number. I know the exhaust won't work but I don't want to lose my custom suspension and rekluse core exp clutch. Any answers?

Your forks will swap no problem. The '06 WR shock will fit in your '09 no problem but the '09 shock may have interfereance problems in the '06 frame (the N2 reservoir on the '09 shock is about 1/2 inch bigger in daimeter and 1/2 inch longer than the '06 shock). The only real difference is the front brake caliper and mounting holes are different (you might double check).

Your Core EXP clutch should swap no problem either.
