It's been a while so I don't really remember, probably around $350 or so between the paint, valve shims, new chain and sprocket, front and rear sliders, air filter, and other misc stuff. It was mostly labor intensive, not too many parts.

Hehe, nope, the VDB seat won't fit on the 2008s...they have the 12L tank and that seat only fits smaller tank models. I tried to get it to fit with no luck whatsoever. That's why I was thinking of doing a seat myself :/

True. Yours has the early headlight so I assumed it was an '07.
