New guy.

Hey whats up everyone I have been creeping around awhile so I thought I would finally post something. The forum seems great lots of helpful people and not much flaming. I started riding at 15.I also ride quads and bikes. Never really got into the stunting stuff, but got so cash so I thought I would throw my hat into the ring. Right now I'm looking at a 95cbr 900 the extras are 905 racing crash cage, 12 o'clock bar, street fighter bars, dented tank, street fighter head light, custom paint job, polished frame and swing arm. It has a new water pump and a new clutch basket, springs, steel and fiber plates. Sounds like a great bike for 2k Iíll try and get some pics up soon. Thoughts about anything I should look out for? I know itís a big bike but I'm not really a small guy 5'11 240 I lift constantly so the weight just keeps creeping up so I want something I feel stable on.

The only thing id worry about is that it is all set up, so its been stunted, that means its seen lots of crashes. i would check the frame, subframe for cracks, etc. other than that as long as the engine looks/feels good you should be all set. Good luck man. I wouldnt worry about the weight, 9hundos are stunt machines. If you can get a newer f4i for the same price go for it, otherwise get the 9 and enjoy.

zx6r are nice, good stunters, just pricey. If you can afford it zx or 600rr, go for it. just understand that the fear of dropping the bike will hold your progression up way more than whatever the difference in the bike you get. Get something you dont mind crashing if you want to learn.
