You guys that dont like your 08's I have a few guys willing to take them off your hands. You must be riding a different 08 than the one I have. The bike stock feels like its lacking power I agree. But run it on pavement againts 07,08 crf, and 06,07 yz and you will then start to wonder. Then buy your self an exhaust
system and the whole world changes. The 08 is so smooth its almost boring to ride until you see your lap times. My lap times before injured where roughly 3-5 seconds a lap faster on my 08 than on my 06. I have spent time on the 08 honda
as well, I do like the bike but its just not as smooth as mine. The yamaha
is very misleading to how fast you are going. I catch myself over jumping things etc, because of this. The handling is unreal. Once tall seat was installed it feels like a 250f in the corners. I love all the power, power, power talk look at the dyno numbers it has the power baby but its very smooth, electric like power. LOOK AT YOUR LAPS TIMES. For some you may not like it, just like a friend of mind that does not like is 08 crf, but many do. I am not brand loyal I do own 2 hondas as well. I will be honest I like the 08 crf,but there motor issues havent conviced me yet so I went with another yami and I am soooooo glad I did. Todd I know you are to righttttttt?
