2003 Yz 450 with street title?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about selling my bike its a 2003 yz 450 great shape.

needs nothing.

would need a dualsport kit and a lighting coil to be road worthy . but i do have it plated here in NY.

I am just wondering what i may be able to get for it???

its hard to price something fair when its your own and you have so much cash invested.... so i need some help.

Thanks all.

A pic of it.

Unfortunately, the add-ons will do little for you except to make it sell a little faster, or make it more likely to be the one chosen from the pack. It won't really add to the price very much. OTOH, the road worthy title may add as much as $800 for the right buyer.

I sold my '03 in early '08 in excellent condition for $2200.

I bought my 03 in excellent condition with a decent amount of aftermarket stuff on it for 2400 (Oct. 08), but bikes seem to run $500 more around here for some reason...

Id ask 2750 for it, and take 2500.

I think a street titled yz would catch a prettier penny here in NY. I want to get my bike plated but I have heard its a pain.

I would say 3k ish because it would still need street tires, lights, speedo, etc.

Beautiful bike. I am saving that picture for inspiration!

I just had a conversation yesterday about bikes with street titles. It's a tough call. First let me qualify myself, I actually have a 2003 YZ450 street legal in NY.

Yours bike looks pretty clean. Tough sell as a dual sport though with a 4spd tranny, then figure in lights, electric producing stator, etc. and the price climbs quick to actually get it on the road. Pretty soon you could start looking at KTM's ready to go without the work and with many other benefits.

The reality is that I don't think the street legal capability necessarily brings you any more money, but I do think without a doubt that it will sell quicker (and any older YZ is tough to sell).

2 years ago I sold a non-street legal 2003 YZ450 that looked AT LEAST as good as yours and I got 2k for it.

Send me a PM, I don't come on here much.

Many states permit any bike to be made street legal, even if it did not come from the factory that way. So buy a bike that has been titled in one of those states and it will generally transfer right into your state. The OP probably bought the bike from someone who got it titled in their state and then he transferred the title into NY.

Yep Out of state is the only way. Or find a frame That has been plated out of state and plate it here in NY. Swap everything over.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
