Need some info on a wr 450. I just sold a KLR 650 and am looking for something thats more FUN. First off I need it plated. I live I Pennsylvania so anyone from PA that has there's plated I'd like to hear from you. I was set on a KTM but some of the issues with 08 and newer engines make me nervous. Of course I'd like somehting reliable. I found an 05 with 300 miles for 3000. Much cheaper than a lot of KTM's I've seen. I'm not a real experienced rider in the dirt. Most of my riding will be dirt roads, fire roads, pipe lines and some single track. Very little hard road riding. Northcentral PA is pretty desolate and the dirt roads are tight and twisty so no long periods of the motor wound out on a hard road. I want to do more woods riding and the KLR just doesnt cut it. Does the WR have a real close ratio gearbox or is it a little more open? Maintnance and oil changes dont bother me. How long are you guys going before checking the valves? Any input would help.
