I'd like to take a look at that 525. Is it dual-sported or just trail.
The allure of the 350 exc or a 500 is the cross town, to the trail plate-ability. But I agree a little more top end...

This is obviously a known issue throughout the 2009-2012 990 range. It has several "Suggested Fixes" none of which seem to be a universal fix.

Perhaps it has to do with how well it does off road?...

I paid in 2010

So I paid $13,500.00 in Sept. 2010, in the USA...For what it's worth!

0 miles, full warranty, get them to throw in some farkles and I'd say its a fair price.

I'd recommend Cascade as a good compromise if you want to be close to Co Springs, but in the hills. The other option would be to look at the high-up spots in Manitou.
