Default To Tell For Sure...

You check the year. 2010 doesn't. 2011 does.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I don't want to deal with transmission problems but have my heart set on Midnight Cherry. How long will I have to wait until that color come around again?

The 2010 did nt have problems. They just made more noise, Fact is I think the 10 shifts better, and is stronger

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Some of us are more sensitive than others, at least in the hearing department. Therefore, some complain about the gear whine of the 2010's while others say "what gear whine?" Test ride the bike. What you see (or hear) is what you get. No surprises. If the transmission's not too loud for you, then save the money and get a 2010 model. Btw, the midnight cherry might never come back.

I was told by a dealer that the size of the alternator was increased at the same time the trans. mods. were made for 2011. I have never read this anywhere and would like to know if anyone here can verify this change.

philo, I have no qualms about my XR's tranny. Yes, its a bit noisy, but nothing I can't abide. When doing around town errands I don't wear ear plugs and the sound is never annoying. On the highway, I always wear 'em. I have gotten more compliments about my bike's color - I am so glad I got a 2010. Not only is the color great, I like the way it came set up with the tubular crash bars, medium height windscreen, hard cases and a wider passenger seat than the 2011 has. Get that 2010, you won't regret it one bit. You might even get a big discount to boot.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
