I think you got a good bike. Is the power as violent as some people say? I never thought my 04 was, but Yamaha was already toning it down by then.

It does get over-hyped a bit. Coming from a CR500 to my '03, I didn't see what the big deal was, but from a different perspective, I could understand it.

The '03 is edgy-er than the '04, but not a lot. They are a lot like an open class two stroke except that they are never off the pipe, and, being a 4 stroke, the throttle is much more linear, and much less like an on-off switch than on a pinger. They also bite considerably better when digging just because they're a thumper. But the power is actually abrupt to the point of being detrimental in the sense that it does wear the rider down by comparison to, say, an '06, which accelerates every bit as hard, and yet is much more manageable, and actually the faster of the two.

well he seems to be the expert around here so i am not going to question what he says. I really cant say how " violent" it is. I only test rode it for for like 5-10 minutes. I did no "snap" the throttle but i rolled it on easier to make sure it was smooth through all the gears. I am fixing to head out if it stops drizzling so i can let you guys know when i get back.
