oh yeah..i want the S model...maybe an SM i could put some dirt wheels on
maybe this would be of some help:

there have been some changes from 2000-2004 so you would be best served to get a 2004-2012 model S; the SM suspension is not up to off road work. check the common fixs on the TT list and look for them on the bike you want to buy.
