The 2nd one has aftermarket exhaust/wheels/tires... but doesn't have resi shocks... first one has resi shocks, but looks like they hit somethin pretty hard (lower a-arm left side pic).

I'd vote the 06.

Agreed! That '09 has been abused hard. To have worn the paint off on the subframe takes a lot of riding. I imagine it has lots of hours on it by someone who didn't care much about its longevity.
Also, the '09 has been rolled. Stress bends all over the plastics. Not necessarily a reason to run from it, but its another issue.

I agree. The second one is a better choice. There is little difference between the '06 and '09. Plus as previously pointed out - the first one looks beat.

Terrible that someone would do that to their bike. Typical that they would try and turn around and try to get top dollar for their piece of shit though, lol.

Couldn't be closer to the truth, somebody thinks just because theirs is a couple years newer that it is worth twice as much, but has had the bag ran off it everyday they've ridden it, as compared to someone who has an older bike and actually takes pride in their machine.

second one is just cleaner 06 or 09 which one would u think has been rode harder? i wouldend go with the second if he doesnt have a fuel controller for the full exhaust.

If it's like all the other toys in the area i would say it's been kept outside....it also bothers me the that the front tires are on in reverse direction..(not to mention worn out) but it makes me wonder what else he tried to do to it that was wrong.....just me The back tire also looks flat. I bought an 06, and love it.

Yea you can tell that the first one was beat up, get the 2nd one and take the 200 bucks you'd save and buy the resi shocks.

So what did you do? Buy the 1st one? :D I know it's probably been decided but second one. There are no votes in favor of that rust bucket.
