Gotta a buddy buying a 2012 outlander Max 800R. Low mileage and hrs. What does the "R" signify? Anything he should be concerned about or looking at? This has the G2 frame doesn't it?

The R is just an updated version of the plain old 800 from years ago. Has a little more hp. This is not a G2 bike.

Does the G1 frame have any issues?

I think (not certain) that the frame cracking issue on previous G1 frames was sorted out by 2012. Only problem I've had with mine is the upper front shock mounts cracked and bent but I think my lift was a contributing factor. The G1 frame is really flexy and I can feel my floorboards twisting when cross rutting ditches. Again, could be the lift making it more noticable.
