Been riding the 08' for about 5 months now and really like the bike. My only gripe is I wish it was just a little snappier on the bottom. I changed out the exhaust to a FMF and that helped. Still looking for a little more. Was thinking of going to a 06' cdi, or up one tooth on rear sprocket. Any suggestions? I was able to source a cdi on the cheap so cost is not a problem.
