Yamaha 4 strokes are one of the best at going a while without valves needing adjusting. I just go overboard with maintenence by cleaning the air filter and changing oil more often than I should and I don't have any problems. As far as what years to get it is just like any bike each year they improve things, usually little things. Suspenion wise it with be a huge improvement over you current bike. Engine wise the 06's felt more powerful. I have an 09 and they made the power smooth almost to a fault where it feels weak down in the low RPM's. I suggest to find one to ride first and then make a decision. Some people love 4 strokes, some people love 2 strokes.
