2009 K4x engine more power?

Just picked up some rumours that the new K-engine for the 2009 model will have more hp. The K-S '09 is to have some cosmetic changes as well.

Has anyone heard of this too?

Grtz,
Erwin

Yeah, my GT is starting to feel a little anemic.

Haven't heard anything this side of the pond yet. But do keep us informed.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Yes, I would like a nitrous boost....for those times when 145 mph just isn't quite enough.

Come on now, you know it's not the top speed that's the most important measure of a bike. It's how fast you can get there.
