Ok. I have ridden my 09 5 times. The first time was just some trail riding with my friend to break it in. The second time was on a practice night on a track I have never been to and the bike was completely stock. The third time was race night in slightly muddy conditions with 3 foot deep ruts with my FMF exhaust on it with the 1 size larger pilot and moved the clip from third position to 4th.

My thoughts before riding it. I love the additoinal mounting position of the handle bars. I am 6' 3" and put my CR high contours on it in the forward most position. This made the bars a little taller and gave me a more forward riding position. The clutch is more adjustable but means nothing to me. I have big hands and like the clutch all the way out like normal. Looks of the bike is awesome. I love the black wheels and the gold chain (chain doesn't look like it will hold up any better than the previous version).

Alltogether it is an awesome bike. Alot of power behind it. Hopefully the 6th ride will be tomorrow.
