Hi Everyone!

My first post, looking to pick up a new to me 450F and have a question before I take the plunge.

Its a 2009 with 1250 miles and the seller is asking $2,600! The cheapest I can find an 09 in my area is for ~$4,500. I'm not sure why he is asking for only 2,600.

The plastics don't look like an 09 to me. Looks more like an 07...

Is there such a thing as a 450cc X Enduro? I've never seen such a title but when I saw the price he was asking and plastics that don't look like other 09's I've seen I started questioning what this bike was.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Attached is the pic from the ad

Thanks!

My friends 09 looks like that, but this one has signals I can see that's why he called it enduro

It has new shroud graphics.
The only designation is WR450F.
He's just calling it an X so when someone searches for a CRF 450 X his bike will come up too.

At 2600.00, buy it quick before it's gone.

What is considered high mileage for this bike? Is 1200 miles still low?

2007 or 2009 doesn't matter because the bike hasn't changed. What matters is the 1200 miles, which probably means about 80 hrs.

That is very low hrs on a bike, and even lower on this one. The wr's will last hundereds and hundreds of hours.

At 2600.00, buy it quick before it's gone.

Ditto... did you get it yet?

Yes... its almost too good to be true. If you do get it, mail a check and then send your shippers over to pick it up.

Those are the Yamaha GYTR graphics. I think they look good, they are similar to the stock '07 graphics. One way to tell an '07 apart from '08+ is the cases. The '07 has gray cases like all previous YZ's & WR's while the '08 and newer have black cases. The bike you are looking at has the black cases so the year seems right although I would confirm the VIN and registration before dropping the cash. The mileage is low but then again a lot of people don't get at on long rides and put the miles on. Looks like a clean bike, definately worth checking out for that price. Be careful and look it over closely. The good thing about it is that its a WR and is proven to be one of the most reliable bikes out there.
