I just picked up my new 2004 wr450f from the dealer. I watched the dealer build the bike from the crate and was told a couple of times that this bike was definitely an '04. When I got home I noticed a sticker beside the serial number on the steering stem area that said: "Made in Japan: 09/03" (September 2003) My registration states that it's a 2004 My question is... How do I know that my bike is really an '04 ????? Is it possible that the dealer has played a fast one on me and given me a 2003? I would like to avoid the woodruff issue if at all possible. It would be illegal for the dealer to do that right? Is there a way to tell by my serial number??? I hope it is an '04 that was just built in 2003. Some help would be appreciated. Thanks.
