What to look for when buying wr450

5 posts in this topic

Bike for bike condition is everything as was just mentioned. WR450 are extremely reliable if they haven't been run out of oil and the air filter has been serviced properly. One of the best ways to look for your used bike might be to spin the rims to see if they are bent. Look at the engine side case paint for wear, ask the owner about air cleaner maintenance, pull the dip stick & check the engine oil. Push or ride the bike or look it over closely to see if it's bent from a crash. As reliable as they are it's still better to get the least ridden one, there should be plenty. Then  :ride:  the wheels off of it.

Things you should know:

 

Some clutch drag is normal/typical; this may cause stiffer shifting. Simple fixes are available.

These motors are NOISY, so don't be alarmed.
