Default '07 vs '09 Kingpin Tour

I thought I had a deal on an '09 Kingpin Tour but it didn't come together. So I've got time to learn what there is to learn about the slight model changes over the years. From what I understand the 6 speed transmission came out in '06 along with the 100 ci engine. Then in '08 the gear ratios were improved slightly, the compression ratio was lowered and timing was advanced along with improvements to the fuel injection and air box yielding a slight power increase. 2008 and newer Kingpins are wired for electronic cruise control. In 2011 the engine displacement was increased to 106 ci and horsepower increased to 97 ponies. Someone said the '08-'10 Kingpins are not as desirable as the '07 and 2011 - 2012. What difference was there between "06 and '07? Is a mint garage kept '07 Kingpin Tour with 3000 miles on it worth as much as a similar "09 with 10,000 miles? Would you pass by these two bikes to wait for a 2011 - 2012 model? How much of a premium should I expect to pay for a low mileage 2011 - '12?

2007 without hesitation.
The 2008 and 2009 are closed loop and low compression.

Don't pay any attention to HP claims from the manufacturer.

They fucked up the transmission in 2012 to put in a positive neutral finder. The best trans year was 2007 but 1st gear is taller in the 2007-down bikes. Those are a good candidate for an underdrive front pulley (2 teeth smaller).

If you are buying a 10+ year old motorcycle it is best if you are mechanically inclined. If you are not "wrenchy" get a newer bike.

@half_crazy , my March 2010 Vegas 100/6, can you tell me what the compression was on my bike? , and would it have increased with the Lloyds 109 kit, if so by how much?.
The 100 cube pistons after 60,000 miles had a fair bit of carbon on the tops of them, I presume from using premium gasoline.
Ive tried to cut back to mid grade but not all stations have mid, so when the choice is top or bottom grade I tend to go the higher choice.
Naturally if I'm gonna run it on the track I use premium.

Not sure what it started at, but now it should be close to 11:1 (mine is 11.2:1) and you need premium fuel.
