keep 07 or go for 08
one of my friends was searching for a used ultra..he just offer me a good price..now i never thought to sell it but i'm hearing alot of issue in 07 models which has been addressed or solved in 08..what do you guys think keep it or sell it and get 08 model

there's only 2 things i like about the 08 more or might not be cheap to retro
1. case vent tube improved (which the 07 can easily be modified)
2. ECU changes/ignition - Dunno exactly what this is about, what prompted, or benefit.
The exhaust on the 07 i like much better and more

what's good about the 07 exhuast system? do you believe that in 08 models the fuel in oil issue has been resolved? if yes then it means alot if not so i believe both are more or less the same not gona sell it i like the silver/blue color more that 08 plain blue or red

The 07 exhaust does not cross over which leaves more room for batt relocation and other stuff, also, the 08 factory id is smaller. I guess they felt the need for more backpressure or harder to mod??????
I'm still looking to hear of any FACTS that kawi has addressed GIO with anything else except for the elimination of the breather box and case hose barb which I and sirbreaksalot had the simple idea to mimic the 08 system by fabbing a barb to bolt on the 07 case. sirbreaksalot actually did it!!!

that mean 07 has it's own advantage over the 08..if I trade my 07 250xI will loose about 5000$ which I can use to modified it having 07 modified 250x will be much better that 08 with some enhancement am I right???

You can probably get the 07 for a better price. I do not see the 08 as "materially" better than the 08. Yes, I have had some issues with my 07. Annoying things like Oil leaks, onging GIO, and the recalls. But all that is in the rear view mirror now . . . onward!
