That's a hella good price. I paid $3650 for the 08 and feel like I got a bargain every time I twist the throttle.
Just watch out that you don't give the bike away, because it's not really the "season" for buying bikes. A lot of people aren't lucky enough to live somewhere where you can ride year-round so they don't want to buy and have to watch it rust in the garage.
If you've got your eye on a bike right now, you might be better off holding onto the RM to sell in the Spring for closer to your original price. And go ahead buy the bike you want from a desperate off-season seller.
Orrrrr...you could save yourself some money and instead of being just another orange bike on the trail, buy a:
295cc and that kit is $660. If you race dtx, hare scrambles, hill-climb, or ice-racing we can build an "80-over" (2mm) 265cc for only $550 parts and labor.
All of our kits include cylinder porting, head mods, and powervalve service. You get you choice of 3 powerbands and 3 fuel types. All the top end parts are included too like a Wiseco piston kit, top end bearing, alignment pins, and oversized gasket kit.
Powerbands and Fuel Types
The 3 powerband choices
1) More low to mid-range with a flatter top end. By concentrating the power down in the lower revs it makes a powerband that lugs without chugging yet is responsive enough to steer with the rear wheel. Perfect for technical mountain climbing, single-track, Arenacross, ice-supermoto, short-track and TT.
2) More mid-range to top end and a bit softer off the bottom end. This choice is best for expert mx, desert, dunes, dirt drags, beach racing, and dtx.
3) Wider smoother powerband with less mid hit in the mid-range. This choice makes the power wider like a 4-stroke but without the harsh deceleration. It's great for off-road, hill-climb, and intermediate mx.
The 3 fuel types
We machine your head flat then machine the squishband and bowl to match your powerband and fuel choices. The fuel types are unleaded pump 92, race gas of 98-110, and E85. Pump gas is the most popular choice because you can also run race gas. E85 requires really high compression, a wide squishband, and much richer jetting.
You will have the only yellow 2T in the woods. A low-range 300 kit with a FMF Gnarly with another tooth in the rear and a 13-ounce flywheel weight with the RM's handling would climb like a mountain goat. Although I'll go for the "overall" curve if I ever decide to get one. Better for the hardpack tracks I ride.
I've got a lot of seat time on a mid-high Gorr YZ300 with a FMF Fatty pipe and its like shifting into hyperspace on long straights. He knows how to port.
