There were also early issues with stalling.

A few niggles were fixed with recalls.

I really like the discontinued 800S, but in an ideal world it would have to be 2008-on.
mid/late 09 is when they finally fixed the stator issue. If you have a pre-09 and want to "upgrade" to the updated parts that's gonna run ya around a grand.
