2004 YZF 450,any good?

I'm looking at a 04 YZF 450 that is in excellent condition,doesn't look like it has been rode alot

Any problems that I should be aware of?

Any thing that I should look at real close?

I'm looking at the 04 because it seems like it is a bigger bike that the aluminum frame 450s

I'm 6'3 and I have sat on both and I think that the 03-05 fits me better

I will be new to Yamahas so any tips will be a great help

Thanks

Nope, just check the normal stuff. If it hasn't been ridden much you don't have much to worry about. Check the brakes, check the oil, check for play in the steering head...etc. I just picked a 04 up myself a few weeks ago. Bullet proof bikes if you ask me. And unless you are a professional racer no need for aluminum frame. Also, you can weld steel much easier than aluminum if ever needed.
