I have an '07, and I love it. It is a bit heavy, but you get sturdiness in exchange for that extra weight. Also, even though it is heavier than the other 450's it still hauls as*. I don't think it is a coincidence that the last two GNCC titles and the last 3 AMA ATV MX titles have been taken by riders on an LT-R. It is a bit wide for trail riding, but I have gotten used to riding it in the woods, if you ride on tracks or more open areas, the extra width is nice. The one thing I don't like, is that it is kind of a pain to work on. Everything is crammed pretty tight in this machine, on the other hand, I know that the Honda 450 is much easier to work on, everything on that machine is pretty simple and easily accessible.

The LT-R is a great machine, DD about the Suzuki racing teams, they also have the top 4 riders in the 2 catagories of racing.

The only "negative" thing I have seen on the LT-R is that if your battery is not charged 100% the fuel injection won't work. My buddy left his key on, drained the battery. There was no bump starting it on the trail.

True, they do have some great riders, but those riders also never took home championships in previous years when they rode different machines. Creamer never won on a Kawasaki, and Borich never won on a Yamaha. Another thing to note, if you look at the GNCC standings, the only other Suzuki rider never placed higher than 10th and only placed 12th overall. However, Borich won 11 out of 13 races and placed 2nd and 3rd in the only two races he didn't win. Also a fact that more riders ride Hondas and Yamahas in any style of racing.

I was warned about keeping the battery in shape by the dealer when I bought mine, just for that reason. They recommended that I put the battery on a trickle charger once a month and to turn the key off anytime the motor isn't running so the fan doesn't drain the battery. I haven't had any problems even though I have never put it on a charger, but I haven't left my key on either.
