As has been said before. Welcome to the addiction. It's definitely a good idea to get yourself a dedicated trackbike. Not sure if this guy is still selling a nicely set up 636, Suspension, Brakes, etc but you can try email him...

Get what ever bike apeals to you. I agree that it would be ideal to start out with a slower bike, and learn cornerspeed and how to get the most out of it before moving on. But there are lots of people who started out on 600's, even a few on 1000's. I definantly don't recommend the 1000, but starting out on a 600 is manageable. If a 600 is in your budget, I'd say go for it. May look for an older model, so you could have cash left over to buy replacement parts (you will crash it at the track!).

I'd go with the SV650. They're affordable to buy, cheap to maintain and cheap to fix after the inevitable crash.

The fastest guy in Texas, an expert, at TWS (Texas World Speedway), on a SV650 is still slower than the fastest 5 novices on 600's this year.

Just sayin'
