Down in San Antonio the prices on new 2007 zx6r are running about $8600 out the door, Dont know if you have found anything cheaper up in Houston. Back when I bought my 636 in March of 05 I paid $8000 out the door.

wait a little longer like everyone else said. How many miles do you have under your belt now anyways?

You may want to go to the track and have a little fun on your current machine and see what you can do. My .02

I've heard Pasadena Kawi was a good place to find a good deal. Though I've never been there personally.

Why do you say that about clearlake?
I went to three places today and clear lake kawi was one of them. Right off the back, the guy seemed like he didn't even want to deal with me. I asked "how much the bike would be out the door?" and he responded by telling me "well how much do you want to spend?" What kind of sh^t is that? maybe he thought I don't have the money, or maybe he thought that i am just another mexican just window shopping who doesn't ride or even own a bike. When i asked him once again for the price, he quoted me 10,600 OTD. Little high considering I got a qoute of 9600 OTD somewhere else

Why? My bike has been having problems with the headlight randomly going out since last May/June. I took it there(before Mancuso bought it) and they put a new relay in it. Went out on the way home. Took it back maybe two weeks later and Mancuso had bought them out. They replaced the relay after a MONTH. Went out on the way home. Took it back a few days later, but now the bike wouldn't hold a charge. I had laid it down at 5mph between services, so I paid for a rearset bracket that had broke up front and told them I would be putting it on myself. I check back with them every other day or so, and am told the part is ordered, it should be here *insert day here* So I call back on that day. . . nope, still not here. Finally the new relay gets there(after a MONTH, again) and then I'm told the tech traced it further and found the battery was bad. It would NOT be under warranty and that they had already replaced it. I was told it I wanted my bike back it would around $220 for work that was NEVER authorized. I was livid, but decided it that's what it took to get my bike back and away from them I'd eat it. Maybe 300 miles later the bike broke down on me on the way to work. I called them and told them, and they said they would come get it. Ok great. Oh yeah, it'll be $75. **** you, no it won't . . . so they come get it for free. It's there again, waiting on the relay for a month. Finally comes in, and now the tech says it's a bad voltage regulator. Wait on that for another 2 weeks. I finally got fed up with it and asked David(DAHORN) if i could go buy one with my own money and have them put it in. he said that was fine, so I PMed Patrick, and went and got one from him. The bike runs great now, with no problems, but it also took from May/June 06 until Febuary 07 to get it right. After I got the bike back and it quit breaking, I asked the new service guy about getting that $220 back. He said he would be able to work with me, so I went up there several times and talked to them about it, but to no avail. I have done my best to steer everyone I can talk to about them away from them, and have succeeded several times. Never in my life have I been lied to more or just been flat outshitted on by any company like that. The parts guy is great though, I'll go see him anytime. He knows about my situation, and does what he can to uhhh. . . help me out.


Screw cliff notes, paragraphs, or proofreading. I'm not being graded on it(Though usually I about those three things)
