Picked up my new 05 on wed. finally got to ride it on fri. This bike doesnt have the engine rattle my 04 had and starts way better for some reason. suspension is hard to tell cause its not broke in but does have way better bottoming and a smoother midvalve than the 04. the power is great, throttle response is improved feels like more torque off the bottom with smoother mid range and revs to the moon on top like always. 6000 otd got 4037.00 for my 04 less than 2000. diff. this is just my opinion but i think the 05 is going to be better than the 04. i was worried about the power delivery but after riding the 05 it has great power.

I sold it for the sum of $4000.00 cash. Figured it was a fair deal for both of us. Paid 5000.00 out the door for it in febuary. Was stock except for the following items, pro-taper se bars, works connection radiator braces, skid plate, frame gaurds and scotts fuel screw. Bike was in very good shape and a blast to ride!
