Problems with 03 WR450?

Hey guys. Ive heard a bit of talk about their being some problems with the 03 450 which were rectified in later models. What were they? I am looking at buying a used 450 and I don't have a huge budget so I want to make sure I get the right one.


Search "woodruff key" or "03' starter"

Yamaha had a re-call of sorts where parts were provided to fix... most 03' owners should have fixed it by now... other than that, good bikes no big money issues just test the seller on his maintenance routines:thumbsup:

cheers. Did the 03 250 have the same problems?

No the 03 250 did not have the problems.I would still go with the 04 and up wr450.
