My brand new 2009 WR450F, Just picked it up yesterday. This was a special edition black with silver fern model New Zealand dealers sold in 2009. This one ended up sitting on the shelf until yesterday, I bought it for cost price. Included a picture of my old 03 WR250F. Engine issues after a standard rebuild with my 2011 KTM350 prompted a move back to Yamaha. I picked up a discounted alloy bash plate and radiator braces on clearance sale already. Have been riding from age 7, now 33 and this is my first new bike.

 

I have never seen those factory colors before.

My mrs Santa brought this for me from a heck of a nice guy. He had purchased it for his 70th birthday!!! Did some great mods to the bike thanks to the nice folks on here and I can't wait for the snow to go so I can ride it.

The white stuff is snow, what is left of it here, anyway.  The tires are studded.

FYI, the tire is an IRC M5B 120.  All the studs are still in the tire after 5 (longish) rides, but the knobs are shredding and tearing quickly.   Next time I'll use a slightly harder tire.

22 miles yesterday in sun and snow.  So beautiful.   Rocks were darn slippery though.   The drinking tube on my hydration pack froze up !  Hope to do it again next week !  So much fun.

This is my 05. Bought it after my drz got stolen. I'm glad that it got stolen the moment I rode the wr450 haha.

I also bought a hgs exhaust to fit on the stock linkpipe.

Still need to do something about the throttle stop but I wanted to watch MotoGP so I grabbed some leftover pizza and a nice craft beer from the local microbrewery and headed for the man cave....
