Looking to get a 2006 rmz 450

Recommended Posts

Hi I am looking at a 2006 rmz 450 and I am wondering what i should be looking out for. The bike looks clean but other that that I don't know much about the rmz and don't know what to look for. Thanks

Mine (06) has been bullet proof. 05's had the cylinder flaking prob.

Look it over thuroughly, ask what has been replaced. I've had nothing on mine "fail", but I believe in regular mainentance.

If i had the choice I would have bought the 07 for the auto cam chain adjuster. Other than that, buy it and ride it!

my 06 has 175 hours on it without one problem. Ask him how often he changes the oil and filter, how often the cam chain gets adjusted, ask him to tell you the steps in adjusting the cam chain, ask him what the cam lobes look like when he adjusts it (he should say facing apart on top dead center) if he cant answer those questions run. I have a log book that tells every minute that anything was ever done to the bike.
