I've got an '07 and ride it almost exclusively in the woods. With a few mods it makes a great woods bike. The only thing I'd add that cowboy didn't mention would be a bigger tank and a high pressure rad cap. Oh, and you might want to soften the suspenders a bit too.

Good call on the tank. Clarke, NOT IMS from my experience. I have the IMS 3.1 and it was a miserable pig to install.

I haven't had any boil over issues on my 06 yet. Now that I've said that I know what my next problem will be...

Radiator cages, good skid plate , handguards, GYT-R heavy flywheel, lower gearing, and a spark arrestor.

Rad guards aswell as braces I'm always folding my left half back on trees or when I dump it on that side,a Clarke or other Over size is a good idea all good suggestions even if you do these things over a period of time this stuff can add up
