    I was reading your post and figured that the price difference between the 2005 and the 2004 was $511. So I'd think that you should be able to get the new 2003 for roughly $3500 or a little less if you're lucky.

    not to be stupid but you thought about getting a 400EX? there is a big time aftermarket for upgrading them and everyone I've known with a 300 wanted the 400.

    reason enough /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif all four wheelers are a bit slow in my book, even the fastest production ones. snowmobiles will skew you view of speed /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I paid around 6,000 for mine (2004) after tax and 3 year replacement warrenty on anything that goes wrong tires to motor blowing up. I also got a preferred maintenance agreement when I call in to get service I am guarenteed to have my bike in within 24 hours no matter how busy they are and back to me within 2 days. Also if it is stolen it has #'s etched on the frame in several spots to recover it and if not it is fully replaced.
