03 YZ450F, worth it or worthless?

Recommended Posts

buddy of mine is getting rid of his barely ridden 03 YZ450 which he bought new.

bike is in great shape

wondering if this is a good bike or should I pass no matter how good the deal is?

worried about reliability and durability

I have an 04 yz 450 and it has been great, I think the 03 was very similar. It would depend on if it had been maintained and how much he is asking for the bike.

I would guess it is worth $2000 to $2500. Although you would probably be able to get a newer 450 for $3000 to $4000.

Mine has been great. Check all your bearings tho. And yes the red hot head pipe is normal.:)

The bike does have some time on it, but in general, driveways, sundials and YZ450's are all about in the same category as far as reliability goes.

I bought a '03 new and rode it for about 3 years and never had a problem. It was one of the nest bikes I've ever owned.
