I'm gonna check out a used 2009 with 50 hours on it. Has a full FMF exhaust and upgraded rims otherwise all stock and looks very clean. Owner said he's replaced the piston/rings but valves haven't needed re-shimming yet.

Anything to watch out for specific to this year ? and what is a fair price ?

thanks

The bike is bulletproof. New ones where going for 4700 before January 1st, but have since gone up, or so my dealer said that they have gone up since then (rebates to dealer are less).
I have about 45 hours on mine, and it has been good so far. Just change the oil in the transmission a lot. I did have trouble with fork seals in mud, but they just weeped. Took forks apart, cleaned bushing and seals, new KYB Yamaha oil and I was set. Seals were not worn, just had dirt inside them.
