Be that as it may, it's just my personal preference. You never know if a guy swamped it before you, and numerous future problems could ensue. I'm starting to think i'll probably never buy used again. I'm a cheap bastard, but i think i should have followed my friends advice when they told me to go new..Especially since i'm seeing new 09 650's for $6999, i paid 4k for my 06Smokey, I disagree with the "spent its' life mudding" portion. I am a mudder (and trail (hunter) rider with the same bike) and plenty of my friends and myself pay much closer attention to the mechanical end than most trail/ sand riders. I believe that we make sure our bikes are in tip top shape because they HAVE to be. Just say'in.
