does the 06's still have the oil in the frame like the older 450's and 426's??

I want an 06 soooo bad just because they came back with the 5 speed and aluminium frame I am gonna save my money and sell my 426 and get one or I might just keep my 426 its so cool I love it and to any one who doesn't know how much power these 450's have I weigh 280 and my 426 scares the crap out of me when I twist the throttle

Well, when Im at the track I ride for about 4-5 Hours. I been to the track 3 times with my bike so far, and I rode some trails for 5 hours.

How much do the hour meters run at Sears? Also, do they have the RPM reading on them, because I played with my idle screw and Im not sure if it's too high or too low. Is it something like this?
