Ok my 06 has been great but I have tons of hours, I do not know the exact hours but I bought it pre owned and I Ride atleast 4 days a week on my personal track. Looks like I will have to do exhaust on 07 or 08 from what I have read, and of course suspension. The only reason is Yamaha finally addressed the front in push on 08. I Dont have a huge problem with my 06 but I did ride, a 07 rmz 450 and it carves like a knife compared to my 06. I have tried damn near everything to get it better but seems thats the bike. My question is what would you do? I can get an 07 for around 5 k otd. so I can get enzo to do my susp again and get an exhaust for what I will have in the 08. Damn this sucks. But I want a bike that turns like the suk but I have to have yamaha.
