Any major difference between the 06-09 other than slight cosmetics?

I have to say pricing for sure; Plus in 08 they came out with this very limited Gray/Pewter color that is to die for--it is also the fastest:D.

Off the top of my head...

Different part #'s on (06-07) than (08-09) for:
Shift forks
Swingarm
Rear Rotor
Few minor changes on the exhaust for these years too.

Different design on the clutch lever. (2009)

A few cosmetic changes, from metal to plastic.

whats the difference in performance. from what ive been looking at the hp rating is 127, is this only for 06-07?

As far as any major mech issues are these issues that can be easily fixed or that wont cost me an arm and a leg at the stealership? Im pretty handy when it comes to cars, as far as bikes go only thing ive done was change my own oil.

Silver is a bit faster

The Silver is a bit faster due to the less pigment in the paint, as compared to the Grey. Other than that the Grey is an okay bike. :D

I wouldn't hang my hat on that 127 HP number:-[. That is a mystical HP rating derived in a lab under optimal controlled conditions. Oh yeah, and it's not RWHP, it's engine HP. Two very different beasts. You could get 127 RWHP with a few thousand in mods. Still, it's a [email protected] torquey powerbeast out of the crate, I love mine!:bigthumbsup:
