I've owned a 2003, 2006 and a 2008 WR. Without question the 2007 is the why to go. If the 2007 is in good shape, $3,000 is a fair price. I weigh 175 lbs out of the shower and I wear and carry 30 lbs of additional "stuff" ready to ride. I found the stock 2008 springs (same as the 2007) to be too soft. The forks sagged to much, which allowed the bike to settle too far into the stroke at rest. The forks beat me too death on the little choppy bumps and I ran out of travel on big bumps at speed.

Last year I was looking to by a new WR but ended up finding a clean '07 for half the price of a new one. With the money I saved I was able to do add, handguards, steering stabilizer, new tires, skid plate, rad guards, D.I.D/Ironman chain & sprockets Airtime HID etc.etc. Be patient and good luck!!!!

I love riding my 04 and at my riding level the diff between the alloy frame models would be small.
Ps both of them are going to be miles better than the drz so u cant loose lol
Go the 04 and with saved money trick up the suspension and get the hurricane kit
