sry guys, ats what my buddy Adam said, Just making sure hes wrong. I think the fact he worships YZF's proly played a big part in his advise. Its his [@#$%&*!] not mine. I just shouldnt of listened to his BlueLuvinAss.

No, but I have heard the 06s have major valve issues.

Oh, and the 07s have MAJOR problems with the wheels spontaneously combusting.

I heard he ran a drywall screw through the carb with the slide all the way up basically pinning the thing wide open and hanging on the rev limiter in the garage for 52 hours non stop. He just came back and kept filling it with gas for some reason.... :cry:

So do you think the valve issues are being addressed on the 05's --- Honda's Eric Crippa would never admit that there are valve issues to begin with...... :cry:
