The new motor( it's an 06) runs great and has 39k on it. I have no doubt this machine will keep going for years more. The goal now is to install a sidecar ( so my four year old can ride with me) on the 05 and find either an SE or a 990Adv as a solo bike. If I could only have one bike this would be it.
Thanks for the info!
How did over torquing one of the bolts on the clutch pack destroy the engine?
