i think either year is safe to buy. some of the early run 06's had some fuel pump issues if i remember correctly.

the 07 also has a slotted rear rotor. its minor things overall i believe, can probably score an 06 for cheap if there is any left over.

A leftover 06' will save you some coin and the fuel pump issue was only with early models. That being said the 07 SE does look kick ass and has better suspension if you don't plan on getting aftermarket suspension.

My local dealer has two leftover 06 models that he would probably make a deal on.

I would go with the '07 SE. I might be a little biased....but it comes with better suspension (better than the YFZ upgrade), drilled rotors, killer looks, black wheels...

All '07's also have an adjustable brake lever.

I think that's it...?

i just got a brand new '06 and saved a pretty penny from the '07's.

Not unless your upgrading to an SE. Otherwise you can keep your drilled rotor. ;)
