    It's got Barkbusters, Bash plate, pivot foot Pegs, radiator guard, Larger tank, Protaper contour bars and 2 in 1 Metal Mule exhaust. They are giving 3 months warranty which is standard for any dealer bikes...
    oh and, Pirelli Rallycross tyres.... tyres look good on pic but I haven't seen it up close and personal yet!

    ~8.7k for this which does sound good. 10.4k for the 2012 one...

    mind you, with 8.7k or 10.4k, I'd not be a happy choppy, if I drop and damage it!!

    I haven't haggled with my local yamaha lady, she must've seen me drooling over the XT every other day, so she just come up and started talking. I suppose I could haggle to get some extras, see where that'll get me!!

    Reckon you've got $2K worth of farkles on the '09. That makes the base bike $6700. Compelling.... You should buy it..:deal

    Got the new bash plate / engine bars on the bike..
    I used a B&B Ten plate & Yamaha Ten engine bars.
    cut the mounts of the bars, put new ones on so it would
    bolt the the bash plate , now the it comes of as a unit
    by undoing 4 bolts...
    Also mounted a set of tapper fat bars because the cross brace
    on the standard bars got in the way of the GPS mount...

    Next are a set of CR250 USD forks & Ohlins shock...

    The gear lever is sitting a bit higher than that pic now..it is close but had no probs yeasterday when out on it..
    BUT.. I'm going to lift the plate about 25mm and to do that I have to move it foward about 25mm aswell .. So that
    will increass the clearance.....

    Everything is well protected now... :clap

    It is not the bike itsef that is raised, just the seat/saddle, compared to original.

    EDIT: Vi fortsätter springa på varandra på olika forum ;-)...

    I think it is H & B, but i am not sure if I remember right. I bought it from http://www.off-the-road.de a few years ago. They have a similar rack now, but not exactly the same...
