No real reliability issues with the '05 YZ.

I've never heard of oil pump issues being commonplace on any YZ, WR, or YFZ450. They all use basically the same pump and they are very reliable. YFZ's do have a greater incidence of grenading in general because they are a four-wheeler. But no worse than a Honda, Kawasaki, or Suzuki.
