Hello every one. I am seriously considering buying a 2009-2011 525irs. I have researched the best i could and did not find if there were any changes/improvements from 09-2011. Most likely there were not but i just wanted to check with you guys to find out for sure. Thanks

hello and welcome to the site. the only change i know of is the 2011 had a red hood instead of a black one. other than that i think they were identical.

Thanks for the info and link. I been looking around and have really only have found like two 2009-2011 525irs's and one of them is listed used for $6500. Its a 2011. Is that the going price for them or is that kinda high?

THAT IS VERY HIGH. THEY ARE KINDA HARD TO COME BY BUT THAT IS A LOT MORE THAN THEY ARE WORTH EVEN NEW. I KNOW THIS IS NOT AN IRS BUT IT IS A 2009 AND NEWER MODEL WITH SOME DECENT MODS AND IT HAS BEEN LISTED 4 OR 5 TIMES SO IT IS ALSO TOO HIGH. I JUST PAID $2,500 FOR A VERY WELL MODDED LOW HOUR 2007 525IRS NOT SAYING IT IS A 09 - 11 AS THAT IS WHAT I WANTED BUT THEY ARE A BIT HARDER TO FIND. I WOULD SAY THE $3K TO $4K RANGE IS MUCH CLOSER TO WHAT THEY SELL FOR MAXIMUM. $2,500 OR LESS BEING A GOOD DEAL.

Well i'm definantly looking for 525irs and i'm really wanting 09-2011. Preferably a 2011. I live in north texas and am willing to drive 300 miles one way. I will have to sell my 08 kfx450r first unless i can finance one at a dealership and then sell my 450 afterwards. Just kinda in the planning stages now. Proly wont be till mid summer when i can actually go through with it.

WELL THE 2011 IS A RARE MACHINE INDEED. I WOULD START BY CALLING EVERY DEALER WITHIN 300 MILES AND ASK IF THEY HAVE ONE CHILLING IN THE BACK ROOM.

WELL I AM A NOTORIOUS CHEAPSKATE. I PAID ABOUT THAT MUCH FOR EACH OF MY NEW 2005 PREDATORS IN 2005 AND I WAS AS HAPPY AS A CLAM. I JUST REFUSE TO SPEND THAT MUCH THESE DAYS. IF IT IS WORTH IT TO YOU AND IT IS WHAT YOU WANT I SAY GO FOR IT BUT IT IS TOO RICH FOR MY BLOOD.

Any reason your stuck on a 2011? 09-11 are exactly the same machine. 09 & 10 are a little easier to find anyways.

Well i'm certainly not going to pay more than i have to. Thats also why i was asking so i dont spend all my money on just getting the thing lol. But i was thinking 2011, if possible.. mostly just cuz it would be newer, fresher, tighter, cleaner, etc. My 08 kfx450 is starting to get a little tired and so i figure i'll sell it before in need to start sinking more money into it. Besides i'm hoping to have an over all increase in power and acceleration after doing bolt in stuff to the 525. Do you guys think that will be the case going from a moderately modded kfx450 to a moderately modded 525irs? I know there is a weight increase..

THE 525 WITH JUST SOME BOLT ON STUFF IS A POWER HOUSE. I HAVE NEVER ROAD A KAWI 450 BUT FROM WHAT I HEAR THEY ARE HARDER TO WAKE UP THAN THE 525.

Yes sir, if you are wanting more power you will definitely be happy. Woods and trail riding the IRS will handle nicely for you. If you hit the track it won't be like the straight axle Kawi, handling will be much different. You will love the power though.

Yeah as you can probably tell i dont race. I just like fast trail and woods riding with my friends. I'm attracted to the irs for the comfort and since its got a larger motor then it should make up for the increase in weight. But one thing i hate is losing when we all line up and drag race. I would like to keep my role as one of the fastest quads between my lil group of friends. I read that, like the kfx450, the airbox is restrictive. I havent searched too much yet, but what do you guys reccomend to help it breath a little better on the intake side? I have a CFM aluminum airbox on my kfx and that solved the problem for it. CFM doesnt make one for the irs..
