help i need some opinions here

I am thinking about selling my GSXR1k and buying a 7fiddy for track use only. The thou seems like it will be a hand full at track speeds, and I don't want to die just yet. Just would like to get some feedback to help me make my desion.

Thanks

Rich

IMO......as you stated you needed.

You aren't going to scrub off too much speed if ANY with a 7-fiddy as compared to the 1K. You might scrub acceleration capabilities but I think that unless you are planning on racing tracks with mile long straights you aren't going to see much difference between the two besides acceleration out of corners. If you are worried about being over powered, go smaller still.

I do most of my racing at Reobling road in Savanah Ga its front straight is something like a 3/4 mile long. I just thought the 750 would turn in a little better than 1000.

I agree.YAMAHA R6 or GSXR600. PLENTY of power, yet not enough to make you constantly worry about an over-eager right wrist. I am sure more opinions will follow.

I would say GSXR600 too but I would definitely get rid of the 1k. It is pretty much worthless on all the regional track other than Roebling. There are very few 1k's racing in this region and actually not all that many GSXR750s but a ton of GSXR600s. With the 600 you can race in more classes. The 750 and especially the 1k restricts you greatly in the number of classes.

I have an '02 ZX-6R that will probably need a new home sometime in the near future... Beautiful bike. Nicely broken in w/ about 2,500 miles.

7fitty. My personal opinion. We had this talk about Matt and his thousand. Would you be any different? Perhaps you can buy Zena?

I know a guy who did something like that with a 96 VFR the the Home Depot parking lot. Broke the damn caliper mounting bracket on one side of my <cough> his <cough> wheel.
