Will it make you smile and/or make you happy? If so then do it!!! I'm in the same boat, I REALLY want a new 450 (blue, not red!) but just can't justify the cost right now, especially since my wife and I are expecting a little one in February. If only I hadn't bought a new sled... :thumbsup: If I had the cash and a decent offer on my bike, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

wait for the aluminum frame. You'll kick yourself in the ass if you buy an '05 and then somebody pulls up with a new '06. I ride the original YZ400 roughly 4-5 times a month and still love it. You don't always need the newest stuff. I say ride your 426 hard and wait for the new Yami's! :thumbsup:

I would sell it w/o even looking back! Either Red or Blue 450 is awesome - you will not regret either 05 bike - or you can wait til 07, 08 or 09 for whatever new wisbang new feature comes - and your 2000 will be worth nothing then... :thumbsup:
