I am looking at buying a 2003 yz450f for 3200 asking price with some aftermarket parts already on it. Why is the 2003 Honda worth 3800 for dealer asking price while the yamaha is only worth like 3200 in kelly bluebook? Is the 03 a bad year for the 450 yamaha? Is it the first year of the 450 yamaha? I have heard that there are ONLY FOUR GEARS. I have always had atleast five gears on a bike and my XR had 6 gears. Can you get used to it? What will it top out at? What is my best bet on what kind of 450 to buy? Is 3200 a high price to pay? The guy told me that he bought it from a guy who went in the military and he got it for cheap and since then he has only ridden it twice. Please tell me all you know since I am getting rid of my yz250 (badass bike) for a hopefully more powerful 450??
