I've ridden one 560. It has a little more grunt and a couple more pounds, but other than that, they are the the 450 in all other areas. All but one that I know personally has toasted a bottom end, but I blame the owners who were floggers and didn't do PM. I know a guy in Austin that has one that rips and he takes care of it. No problems.

I can't wait to rip it up on this one so I can, you know, give you my opinion. Get it. Bring it to GSS.

A single is a single is a single. They aren't known for being maintenance free. Ride them hard enough and they will reward you with a pile of parts thrown out the bottom of the cases.
