The difference between My 06 and my buddies 08 is that my bike is paid for and his are not. This makes mine a great bike.

The 06-08 motors should all be ok for most riders, the biggest difference is in 08 Yamaha changed the forks-shorter and 1mm less offset at the axle- and the frame slightly for better cornering.

The '08 forks are not shorter in any way that alters steering geometry. The steering head and stem a 5mm shorter to alter the flex dynamics of the frame and reduce weight, but the head angle is the same.
