Found these forks for a reasonable price. They have been on a 16 YZ 125, they seem to be stock KYB SSS forks with coatings and Öhlins TTX cartridges. Or am i wrong in this? What would you pay for them? And i assume they would fit a 2018 YZF 450.

If they were on a YZ125 they wont directly fit any of the 14+ YZ 4 strokes because of the axle diameter and where the upper clamp mounts is a different diameter as well. But that can always be fixed.

Kyb factory lugs (older, cast model) and lower tubes, not sure about the uppers but my guess would be KYB anodized gold. Cartridges are pretty obvious wink

It sucks that they don't fit the YZF 450... I would've been able to buy these for almost under 1k!

You can open up the upper clamp on YZF and run the old style front axle and wheel or change the upper tubes for newer style. Maybe open up the fork lugs for the bigger axle? Not sure if it would be worth the hassle though.
