I bought a 450exc from him a few years ago and the way I got him to sell it to me was to show up at his house with my trailer and cash. I told him yesterday " don't make me show up with my trailer" we both got a good laugh . Thanks again for the great info everybody . ( If I posted my location nobody here would try to pull the rug out , would you? )
I don't know about the 2008 model not having known issues. My 08 had the POS point equipped fuel pump that was about to die @ 4k miles. Me thinks they were all made at the same time and sat in inventory until sold - the later years just rebadged. Luckily the known issues are really not a big deal to fix.
