Mine is an 08, I've seen a lot of chatter on the net about them being grabby, that is at least the 06/07 but no solid info about the 08.
My personal experience is that it is grabby, however I have to paint that also with "I am a newbie" and so I don't know if my "experience" is even worth noting.
It might just be me!

Who ever said Hondas were not fast and worth racing? As a street bike they probably out live everything out. And they can be very fast. Look at stotz 1000 and stotz old blackbird. The black bird on boost was a beast! I think it's a good untapped market. Honda makes a good product always have.

you can build it to stock spec like in the service manual, but, I would run the .6mm headgasket and set your cam degree numbers...then mill the head (if you can) until you have .040" ptv on the intake.
