03 or 04?

Recommended Posts

considering a 03 and 04 WR450, any recommendations on the purchase of either one? As I understand there are no real differences.

From Yamaha UK site;

For 2004 the electric start WR450F features a range of detail changes to the chassis, including a new lightweight forged aluminium sidestand and a low-friction Kashima coating on the forks, while the DOHC 5-valve engine features remapped ignition timing and a new clutch housing.

Also the 04 has a 'gripper' seat, slightly changed graphics and doesn't suffer from the flywheel shearing problem that affected some 03's

HTH :thumbsup:
