How do the 06 GSXR750's compare to the 07 GSXR750's?

I hear the rant about the 750 being the best track bike but what year are you referring to?

I love my 06 636 especially with the setup i have on it but i can get my buddies 06 GSXR 750 with low low miles on it for just taking over his payments. He never rides the thing.

Just wondering if it would be worth picking it up and turning one of the 2 into a sole track bike?

I wonder which would make the better track bike?

And the track too.

90% of the people on 1000's never utilize them to the bikes potential anyhow. The 750 is the perfect motorcycle IMO.

I don't deny that I lack track experience. I completed the MSF Experience rider course back in 2000 while I was stationed at Ramstein AB. I could get the 929 up clutching and chopping but it took a lot of effort, when compared to my buddies 2003 R1 that would bring it up with a hand full of throttle alone. The MSF classes I took discouraged bringing the front wheel up even to avoid a tankslapper.

R1's have really light front ends...a little different geometry...and tiny bit more power (it seems). Also, suspension can be one factor.

I'm working on it!!! Basically, it seems the pros/cons of every bike evens out in the end. The problem that I'm having is that every bike I see and maybe want are sold before I make it to them. The market is extremely busy this year, and used bikes are selling for higher now. I think it's gonna come down to whatever bike I can find available for a price I'm willing to pay.
