Hey guys, already asked questions about the 450 in the past, but now that I have the money to afford one, I think it would be a wise choice to ask your opinion before buying one. Which year seems to be the best ? I know it mostly comes down to the maintenance your are doing to it and how you are using it. I'm still trying to figure out if I should go with the electric start. My main choice would be the 2005 model, which I saw that they are (apparently) exactly similar - in terms of mechanic - to their previous model, the 04'. They also come with the kickstart, which would be my favorite option, since I always hated the issues I had with battery, starter, etc. Also, it might be stupid, but I hate the sound of a starter. I've heard a lot of good thing on the 2005 and it seems pretty reliable, of course, there's the rod bearing issue, which I am aware of. So, from your previous experiences, what would you suggest me ?
