Should I jump on this '05 WR450f SM?

Been looking at all things supermoto to try to get an end-of-the-season deal. I haven't seen any WR450f's until today.

Cheaper than what the DRZ's are going for, but is it a good deal? How about reliability/maintenance? Somewhere between a DRZ and a Husky, I'm guessing.

Don't know if its a good deal. You need to check other ads for that.

 

Wr's have great reliability, normal oil changes, generally low maintenance especially valve adjustments. DRZ's have had more quirks than Yamaha's. Husky's cannot be used in the same sentence with good reliability although a few claim to have good luck with them many break weird stuff. Some Husky's go boom or is that poof.

I'd offer $2900 for it.

When I see a visible part that is rusty and neglected (header) I always wonder that things that you can't see have been neglected.... like valve adjustments, oil change intervals, etc.

 

$2500

It was such a great bike I bought it. Thanks for the posting (g)
