You're going to get all kinds of different answers.

That being said, sell both and buy a ZX-10R

I was in your position awhile back, I had a 2004 R1 & a GSXR 1000.
I had more issues with the R1 than my GIXXER, such as an oil leak near clutch case cover, electrical problem with my headlight & shifting gears on the gixxer was smoother...so, guess which one I sold??
