I think you mean 2006... That was the last year they were made lol.

Go over this thread. Look for any leaks and listen for really loud clicking/chattering noises at idle (could be cam chains/adjusters). Ask if the splines are lubed up or if they have to be done. Put the bike on the center stand and rev the snot out of it, if it vibrates like crazy and starts shimmying around the floor the balance dampers need to be replaced. Hop on and squeeze the front brake then try to push the bike forward hard, if there is any issue with the forks you should be able to get a good idea by doing this. Then release the brake and roll forwards and test that front brake to make sure it is firm and not spongy.
