2006 was the first year of the 6 speed trans. My 2005 still uses a5-speed. Not sure we have heard many 2006 owners here complaining about major engine related problems though.

Mandy, those pics look fearsome. You just cannot ride around on rubber like that. Good move to switch out. It has to be the camber that we talked about. With my settings, even my first set of Pirelli...
