Differences from 06 to 08

Hey all looking to get a new bike this season for lots o moto and will be used strickly as a race bike so can you tell me the main differences from 06 to 08 the only real one ive found was the 06-07 models have more top end..

Thanks

just spend some time reading all the reviews of 06 -08's in the forum.

people have really covered all the basics.

use the search function.

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.

i think the exhaust on the 08 makes the difference in power, its restrictive from what ive heard, but i dunno :)

I rode the newer bikes and think the bottem end is a little better.

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.

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.

Now that my friends is what you call a great answer.........:):D:worthy:
