Good day all. I am curious what the group consensus is in regards to how significant the upgraded 2008 engine is? I am aware of the changes, but haven't been able to find much data on how valuable they are in the real world.

In simple terms, is a 2008 or later model worth the price premium, based on increased reliability, or performance characteristics?

Thanks so much

It's not really more powerful than previous years.
It's just more durable.
There are some idiotic issues that we have come across like the lip that holds the clutch ramp plate in the primary cover is weak and pops loose.
Also, it's odd but they seem to use more fuel for some reasons.

Short answer, yes.
