Hi swsupermoto. It would seem by your nickname that you are into more motard ? That may make a difference to what is the best engine as I recall from one post (maybe Lineaweaver) that there is a theory about big bores on road type surfaces. Also the 550 (maybe 05 ??) had some bearing tolerance issues which seem to be addressed with the 07. Hard to say which is best engine overall. Need to know more about your particular needs/desires before you can get a less general response. As Taffy suggested you can go to the doc's and read about particular problems for a particular year/engine size.

uh oh.... you might have a fight on your hands with BOSS over that one he actually makes a very stout plastic one that seemingly does a very good job of protecting the water pump and lower hose. it was actually on the berg in the 24 hour test last year.

Risky1 beat me to the same observation.

Here in Southern Nevada we have enough rocks to satisfy the most demanding masochist and my BOSS skid plate works just fine.

FWIW I vote for the 650. I don't have any real woods around here, but it works great in the tight twisty sand washes and has good road manners too. If it was to be used exclusively off road I would change my vote to the 550.
Except for jetting there are no engine mods needed. Just the normal armor.

No disrespect intended to BOSS,

I have seen them, and they look fine, but theres notin' like the gleem of fresh 4mm alloy wrapped around your frame rails!

there is a good pic on my gallery of the B7B alloy one I have put on.

and I also shortened my rad hose by 3/4" to tuck it away a bit more, 'cos on my first ride on the berg, I had a stick... no make that log, deflect off the front engine case and go up petween the engine and the hoses and push the smaller hose that goes to the thermostat onto the headers. I was alerted by the smell of smouldering rubber, and only just saved it in time!
