you know it might be worth it to get the 09 just cuz 08 is the first year the ds 450 was made and i have been having alot of problems with my 08 450x i had to bring it in for the clutch for the second and my rear break went out. that clutch is sposta be on recall i asked the dealer what they were gonna do as far as putting the same one in and they had no answer for me, and if your gonna buy one dont buy it from rpm motorsports

Where do you live at? My son got his 09 ds450 mx for 8350, the sticker was 8999. We live in north Texas. I think the 09 would be the better choice because all the problems they had with the 08.

HaHa!! I would not mind living up there in a igloo and riding a dog sled for maybe a day or two. So I am spoiled its 80 degrees here today.
As far as the clutch we only got about 3 hours on ours and no problems
so far. I think they did upgrade the clutch though.

I just picked up a new '08 ds450x for $5950 all fees included.

Don't let the salesman :rocketwhore:

Ohh you are talking about canadian dollars... Using an online converter it looks like it would be about $7400 canadian...
