If the guy doesn't know how many gears it got,I'm sure he doesn't know how to do valve adjustments or clean the air filter

The '03 - '05 YZ450's were all 4 speeds.  According to the VIN, that's an '05.

 

The first three gear ratios in the 4 speed are the same as the '06 and later 5 speed.  The 4 speed fourth is about 2/3 up in between the ratios of the 5 speed 4th and 5th, so it isn't like it's just missing a 5th.

well I hadn't seen the bike yet so I was asking a really easy question... but if you don't know how to answer the questions being asked than I'm sure your going to fail becoming a parent....
