i went today and picked up a 09 they wanted 4899.00 got it otd for 5370 not a bad deal. ive been riding a 04 ktm 450 exc. going riding friday to break it in.the frnt forks seem alot stiffer. might haft to soften them up some. ive never riden a 4 stroke made by the any of the big 4 manufactures. its got a better sound than my ktm. just hope it holds up as well. the hole time i had it i never had to touch the valves. just regular oil and filter changes. it still felt as good when i bought it new.
