No problem with them.The first VZB's that came out had some problems but all the V-SPECS are fine.

Carb might be different and I think it will have the V-Spec carb boot on it. Maybe have the old case (sticks out by the backplate) too. Mine came with the speed boot, new carb and new case.

I think the 07 version is the newer case and bearing. Check the bottom of the case. If the 2 humps where the bottom back plate screws go in go up more than 3/8 inch that is the newer case and the big change for 07. Later on they changed the carb.

The older cases were more prone to cracking and the bearings in all V-Specs have a pretty high failure rate. If the case cracks your going to know because the tune will go nuts and the chassis will get fuel all over. The bearing will last a while listen to it and when it starts making noise replace it.

The 07 model has the new case, but not the new carb. The 08 model was when they introduced the 21j carb over the 21c carb. The old carbs are fine, but the blue boots tear easily. The idle screw is also harder to access when in the buggy position. You should be good to go. I still reccomend changing bearings and rod after break in to the 3 gallon mark. TKO ceramics and a speed/ninja rod is what I would do.

Let me get this straight. If there is 2 humps by the bottom back plate scr ews it is the newer or older version? Mine has no humps....
