08 WR 450 Forks

Absolutely positively not. They have what I call a defective base valve in the bottom of the forks. You need to install a valve that uses shims instead of a spring. Racetech makes a gold valve that gets rid of the useless stock base valve spring system.

Just buy 2006 YZ 450 SSS forks then sell your current ones. You'll be out 200.00 to 300.00 which is a lot better then stock with custom valves at 200. It's a no brainer! Best mod I have done.

Bought the '06 YZ forks for $300, sold my stock ones for $150. Then had them revalved by ENZO, sweetness ;)

Then sold the bike a few years later :D

What year forks swap over with the least trouble??

For the '07 and up before the big change, the '06 YZ forks bolt right up with nothing else to do. You get to keep the ODO.
