    Purchase a 2008 or wait for 2009 FX SHO?

    I'm in a dilema, There's only 1 maybe 2 months worth of riding left here in MN, should I wait until 2009 to get a FX SHO? Will all of the (minor) known issues with the 2008 model (Mirror shaking, Paint flaking off, Gas tank breath tube) be fixed on the 2009 model? Also, I've always been told never to buy the first year of a new model, does that hold true in yamaha's case? Also, with the new FZR models in 2009, maybe the FX SHO will be easier to negotiate a good price early next season?

    I would think that a better deal would be had now, at the end of season.

    Mine has had no issues. No mirror, or paint. or fuel tank issures.

    There are other threads listing prices just over $10k, maybe $10300. If you could get that price now or ever, I would take it.

    I haven't seen any of these problems either. Not a single one, but that could be due to me buying mine late June. I'd def. go for the 08 and save you some serious cash.
