I would not say they are easy to blow up, as long as you maintain it well. If you keep the oil changed and the filter clean they are very reliable. They do demand maintenance though, and they are expensive to fix in a big failure. However, $3,000.00 break downs are few and far between if you keep the maintenance up. I have an )@ and an 05 and have never had an expensive break down.

That said, it's true that blowing a top end on a 250F is a lot more costly than doing so on a two stroke.

I always get the extended service contract for 3 years. If I have the records of oil changes they pay to fix it. If it does not let loose and I sell the bike it is transferable. Thanks Mark

do the maintanence and the bike will take all abuse you can throw at it, mines been flipped over, run off the rev limiter constantly and it still runs perfect, unlike those damn hondas :banghead:

Well, I've heard that the oil temps are up on the 06 since the oil doesn't get the cool airflow like it did with the steel frame with the oil sump. Don't know how big it will be in terms of reliability, but since the design is so good with the 3 intakes it shouldn't really be a problem.
