Well, i found a good deal on an 06', and im seriously looking into buying it. The problem is, the dealership it is at, there are two people there, i beleive there co-owners. One of them says that the bike has been very well taken care of, but raced hard for 2 years. He says that he put new piston and rings, and new valve springs in it mid last summer. The other one seems to be kind of steering me away from it. I visually inspected it myself, and it seems to be in very good shape, and not that high of hours. It has the original grafix, original bars, not to much scuffing on the frame, original exhause with no major dents in it. I no that these yzf's are very reliable, but how reliable? When i bought my 03' i knew it was low hours, but they tell me this 06' is high hours. If this bike was well maintained like he says, do you think that the engine is still in good shape?
