05 Wr450

I have an 03 WR450 that I have been riding for 2 years. I rode an 05 WR450 over the weekend and it seems like a different bike. The center of gravity is much lower, so the bike is much easier to flip around. The seat is much more comfortable and I even liked the seat cover. The bike is also more narrow than mine. Power delivery is about the same... which is awesome.

So, has anyone else moved up from an 03 to an 05? Any regrets? Was it worth it?


Well I moved from an '88 250 to an '05, so my impression is obviously incomparable. But one of the first things I noticed was how well it handled for weighing roughly 260 lbs. And if I heard right, they did put a different seat foam in it. And who can complain about the power? The bike runs like a raped ape.
