Last week I posted asking if they have fixed any of the issues from the o8 EXC's as I was looking into an 09. Well your responses made me do it. Just bought an 09 450 EXC a few hours ago and should pick it up Thursday. I also have the distinction of being the first person to buy a bike from a new dealership. Colin at Apex Cycle Sports in Waterloo Ontario hasn't even officially opened his doors but managed to work me a great deal including a trade in. Not only was he great to deal with he even honored the long standing tradition of providing his first customer with a free bike a year for life! Looking forward to the mods and asking for help.
