YSR50 for the track

Are they worth it or would a larger cc like a 250 be better?

ex500
gt650 hawk
bandit 400 - parts hard to find
fzr 400

Pretty much with all the lower cc bike and especially the gp bikes, parts are going to get harder and harder to find.

for an entry level track bike, the best bet is gonna be an sv650. Lots of aftermarket support, plenty of spares around, many people can tune them up nicely. You can surely find one for 3k.

My r6 trackbike came already setup with aftermarket everything. I added a few items and painted it. Came with a box of spares, stands, extra wheels for less than what the 650's were going for. I just took my time and scoured the race boards, cmra, and wera mainly, until I found a deal.

the sv might be the most economical route as far as most available event in a race. with smaller cc you are confined to those bikes.......so best thing is to think.........what kinda races do i want to do, how many, and on what level of competition.

gotta upgrade the brakes too. Stock brake setup on the 250 or 450 wont work good on a road course.
