finally getting one

getting a motorcycle within the next 30 days and i am stuck on choices. I like the f4i from 01-03 and the sv650 but would put fairings on it. I am only spending 2800-3200 for it. pros and cons of both? Help!

F4i is going to be tough as nails.

Suzuki is going to be a better performer. IMO

well if this is your first bike then race bike performance is not exactly what you need, the f4i will have plenty of power and handeling for you and very durable. Not to mention the readily available aftermarket parts for it to make it how you want.

a f4i would be best i think. great bike to learn on and there are plenty of used parts for sale for that bike.

either that or a 2000-2002 zx6r

nice. i do like the 636 but i have to admit my wife plays a big role in what i get. she respects my wants and i respect her worries. i like all 3 i think i will look more to getting the zx6r or the sv 650. thanks arturo

the 636's ran from 2003-2006. your best bet is to start looking now but wait to buy until youve exhausted yourself looking to actually buy one. try houston craiglist or cycletrader websites.

im a long time member and mod over at www.kawiforums.com and they have alot of helpful stuff for you to read through regarding the kawi 600's. from maintenace, accesories, how-to's, tech tips all the way to service manuals. if you see a kawi 600 (or any other bike) you like, i can look it over before you buy it and give you me .02
