rebuild?

hello folks, first time using the forum. i bought an 08 xx in feb. dont use it much, been to the dunes once. hearing that the newer four strokes should be rebuilt every 50 hours from some local mechanics...at the tune of 1500bucks...if thats true thats rather disappointing... can anyone confirm? or are these mofos crazy...i bought it from the original owner. the air filter was trashed and the oil was ok...curious of the maint or the lack of...what are you guys and gals finding with yours...thanks -Bob

That's BS!! You only need to rebuild when a motor NEEDS it... For example: Your motor may indeed need to be rebuilt, but not because of a time schedule, but because of the air filter being trashed... could have caused grit to get in and cause premature wear. If these so called mechanics told you that your motor needs to be rebuilt without doing a compression check or a leak down test first, then they are just trying to pick your pocket.
